Might not even be doing this correctly so I'll explain what I'm trying to do. Very simply I'm trying to create a GridView and within this I will have a button. This button will have some additional parameters added to it (namely an ID) so I would suspect it would look something like #/volunteer.aspx?ID=000000 (with the actual ID added to the end of the link)

So I have my code like this:
<asp:TemplateField>
                                    <ItemTemplate>
                                        <asp:LinkButton runat="server" ID="NewViewReports" CommandName="ViewReports" CommandArgument='<%# Eval("CRM_BusinessGUID", "~/Volunteer.aspx?ID={0}") %>' CssClass="btn btn-primary btn-large" Text="New View Reports &raquo;" />
                                    </ItemTemplate>
                                </asp:TemplateField

Open in new window

and although the button is created correctly the links are not there but the HTML looks like this:
<a class="btn btn-primary btn-large" id="MainContent_ctl00_GridView1_NewViewReports_0" href="javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$MainContent$ctl00$GridView1$ctl02$NewViewReports','')">New View Reports »</a>

Open in new window

Hopefully this is an easy one to sort and I've explained what I'm after so appreciate any advice you guys can offer.

Thanx again

The reason is you have placed the LinkButton in GridView and the URL that you have plaved is as CommandArgument.

If you need to have just a redirect then you can put the same code for
NavigationURL

Open in new window


If you want to work otherway,
 you need to handle RowCommandEvent of GridView. Where you'll check commandname by e.CommandName=="ViewReports"
and redirect to page by using
e.CommandArgument

Open in new window


Hope this will help

Ok being very thick here lol...that's sorted my issue but should've known that one.

Ended up using the NavigateUrl method

Thanx again
