Hello Experts,

Using: c#, asp.net, Oracle, ODP.net, .net 4.0.  Intranet based application.

I have a gridview that has 3 columns.  The third column contains a file path.  For ex:

ID  Product      Manual
1    VIZIO LCD  \\server\products\LCD\vizio_lcd_manual.htm

I need the Manual column content to be clickable.  So, when the user clicks on the file path a new browser is opened with that file.  All users will have access.  

What is the best approach to enable that column markup? Gridview markup or something like jquery?  

Thanks in advance.
