This is actually two questions.  

First, I am trying to convert an result from a query into a hyperlink that will lead to an image path on our servers.  So, I get the path from the query, then how can I convert it to a hyperlink for Gridview to display?

Second say you have query results that you want to put into a Gridview from a datatable like this:

        Dim dtFinalResults As DataTable = Session("Result_Data")
        GridView1.DataSource = dtFinalResults
        GridView1.DataBind()

Open in new window


But lets say in addition to that you want to add something else to each row.  Say a preview image or a button how would you do that?

1)  Look into using a hyperlink field.  The following page describes how to use a hyperlink field in a gridview:

2)  You are probably going to have to modify each row on the RowDataBound event.  The following page describes how to use the RowDataBound event in a gridview:
