Using HyperLink to pass values based on code behind variables

Hi All

I have a hyperlink that links to the same page itself.
<asp:HyperLink ID="hyprNextMonth" runat="server" NavigateUrl="~/Calendar.aspx?M=" + <%=theCalendarDate.AddMonths(-1) %> ImageUrl="images/arrow_right.gif"/>

I'm trying to pass the next month int  in the NavigateUrl but can't get the code right.
Is there a better way of posting back to the same form as in PostBackURL or viewstate if so please show me how.

Thanks

It would easier to do what you want from code-behind by dynamically setting the NavigateUrl from code. If you want to do it in markup you could use:

   NavigateUrl='<%# "~/Calendar.aspx?M=" + theCalendarDate.AddMonths(-1) %>'

But if you did that you would have to call DataBind() on the hyperlink from code-behind anyway. Also the code will probably blow up as you have it anyway probably complaining about the format of the URL.
