I'm trying to open a browser from a GridView and I'm having trouble figuring out how to do it.

Within my Grid I have a Template field.  With the field I have a hyperlink with an onClick to open the browser.  Within that OnClick I need to input a unique ID so when the pop-up window open it loads the proper content.

Can someone show me how to do this correctly?  Thanks!
<Template> 
    <a href='javascript:void(0);' onclick='MM_openBrWindow('View-Meeting.aspx?ScheduleID="<%#Container.DataItem("id").ToString()%>"','','scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,width=900,height=630')'>View</a>
</Template>

Try Eval?

<Template>
    <a href='javascript:void(0);' onclick='MM_openBrWindow('View-Meeting.aspx?ScheduleID="<%# Eval("id").ToString()%>"','','scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,width=900,height=630')'>View</a>
</Template>

Hi Ged325.  I'm getting the value using the <%#Container.DataItem("id").ToString()%>.  My problem is the onClick event itself.  It doesn't fire.

Hi Ged325 - I figure it out.  It had to do with the quotes I was using to encapsulate the data.  Thanks for your help.

Corrected code below.
<a href="javascript:void(0);" onclick="MM_openBrWindow('View-Meeting.aspx?ScheduleID=<%#Container.DataItem("id").ToString()%>','','scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,width=900,height=630')">View</a>
