I have a very simple web app, if you want to call it that, that I have to make for a third party vendor.  They have sent us a .dll.  I have it loaded into my project fine.  I need to reference it on the page_load event retreive an encrypted link and return that link to the default.aspx page.  Can someone help me with this.  Below is what I have thus far.
The URL control on my default.aspx page
-----------------------------
<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server">Click Here</asp:HyperLink>

from the code behind page
-----------------------------
using HC.Ope.Security;

namespace SSOorgChart
{
    public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        
        protected string Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {

 
                //OPEEncrypter.EncryptData("mpatton", "123412341234134");
                string keyToken = "aXsDKUI98ILKi";
                string userId = "userid";
                string hyperLink = OPEEncrypter.EncryptData(userId, keyToken);

                return HyperLink1.NavigateUrl;

        }
    }
}

If Hyperlink1 is the control on your page and the variable "hyperLink" contains the url you want to link to, then you just need to change:
return HyperLink1.NavigateUrl;

Open in new window

To:
HyperLink1.NavigateUrl = hyperLink;

Open in new window

The page_load event gets an error saying that not all paths return a value

Page_Load is an event and doesn't return anything (event handlers always return void).

So instead of:
protected string Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

Open in new window

It should be declared as:
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

Open in new window
