On my page I have this code:
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Document" >
     <ItemTemplate>
<asp:HyperLink  
text='<%# Eval("doc_loc") %>'  
navigateurl='<%# Eval("doc_loc") %>' target='_blank' runat='server' />
</asp:HyperLink>
    </ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>

I want to add a folder to the 'navigateurl' element so that     /pdf/       goes before the  <%# Eval("doc_loc") %>

What is the correct syntax to do this? I tried
navigateurl='"/pdf/"<%# Eval("doc_loc") %>'

but got an error.

Thanks for any help.

Hi,
Try this out,
navigateurl="~/pdf/<%# Eval("doc_loc") %>"
OR
navigateurl='<%# "~/pdf/"+ Eval("doc_loc") %>'

Ram

Try wiht navigateurl ="/pdf/" + <%# Eval("doc_loc") %>.

If it is not working give relative path "~/pdf/" + <%# Eval("doc_loc") %>. Or better absolute path of the folder.
