Change hyperlinkfield in gridview in ASP.net **specifically VB**

I need the VB version of this.  What I want to do is take the value of one cell in a gridview row and add that value to a hyperlinkfield.

For each row in this gridview, I want to do this to the first cell:

hyperlinkfield = "http://myaddress/"+ ValueOfCell5

I see how to do this in C# (example below), I have been unable to get a version of it to work in ASP.NET VB


protected void gridCaseMember_RowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e){

 if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow){
 HyperLink myLink = (HyperLink)e.Row.Cells[0].Controls[0];
 
myLink.NavigateUrl = “http://www.bing.com”;    }
 
}

Try This:
If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then

  Dim lnk As New HyperLink

  With lnk
    .NavigateUrl = "http://myaddress/" & e.Row.Cells(5).Text
    .Text = e.Row.Cells(5).Text
  End With

  With e.Row.Cells(0)
    .Text = ""
    .Controls.Add(lnk)
  End With

End If

Open in new window

And if you already had a Hyperlink in cell 0:

If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then

DirectCast(e.Row.Cells(0).FindControl("YourHyperLink"), Hyperlink).Text = DirectCast(e.Row..Cells(5).Text

DirectCast(e.Row.Cells(0).FindControl("YourHyperLink"), Hyperlink).NavigateUrl = "http://myaddress/" & e.Row.Cells(5).Text

End If
