i have this as part of my repeater control:

<%#DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, " Category_Name")%>

In reality, the value of category name needs by be a hyperlink with a URL simular to what is listed bellow.  Category_ID will be pulled in the same way i am getting category name. I am having a hard time putting this all together.

http://something.com/categories/catEdit.asp?Category_ID=1

Hi,

You could do it this way :

<a href=' <%# Eval("Category_Name", "http://something.com/categories/catEdit.asp?Category_ID={0}") %>'><%# Eval("Category_Name") %> </a>

or with <asp:HyperLink.. />

<asp:HyperLink ID="hyp" runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("Category_Name", "http://something.com/categories/catEdit.asp?Category_ID={0}") %>'><%# Eval("Category_Name") %></asp:HyperLink>
