How to encrypt multiple query string values passing from gridview in asp.net?

The following syntax to encrypt single query string value passing from gridview in asp.net is working properly

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateURL='<%# "billingitemsentrylab.aspx?pid=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(EncDecMK.Encrypt(Eval("pid").ToString())) %>' Text='<%# Eval("pname") %>' runat= "server">

Open in new window

However the following syntax to encrypt multiple query string values from gridview is not working.

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateURL='<%# "adminpatientlabinfo.aspx?pid=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(EncDecMK.Encrypt(Eval("pid").ToString()))+ "&rnumber=" HttpUtility.UrlEncode(EncDecMK.Encrypt(Eval("rnumber").ToString())) + "&financialyear=" HttpUtility.UrlEncode(EncDecMK.Encrypt(Eval("financialyear").ToString()))  %>' Text='<%# Eval("pname") %>' runat= "server">

Open in new window

All parameter values i.e. pid, rnumber and financial year are integers

Can anyone correct the syntax

It seems to me you're just missing a few + signs:
<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateURL='<%# "adminpatientlabinfo.aspx?pid=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(EncDecMK.Encrypt(Eval("pid").ToString())) + "&rnumber=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(EncDecMK.Encrypt(Eval("rnumber").ToString())) + "&financialyear=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(EncDecMK.Encrypt(Eval("financialyear").ToString()))  %>' Text='<%# Eval("pname") %>' runat= "server">

Alternatively, one can use the following syntax which also works
                <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink2" runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# string.Format("adminpatientlabinfo.aspx?pid={0}&rnumber={1}&financialyear={2}",
                    HttpUtility.UrlEncode(EncDecMK.Encrypt(Eval("pid").ToString())), HttpUtility.UrlEncode(EncDecMK.Encrypt(Eval("rnumber").ToString())), HttpUtility.UrlEncode(EncDecMK.Encrypt(Eval("financialyear").ToString()))) %>'
                    Text='<%# Eval("pname") %>'/>

Please see the following link:

The above reference uses encryption and decryption code on every page. Instead, in my project i have written the code in separate C# class file and used it where necessary
For example, on aspx page where the gridview is located, I used
<%@ Import Namespace="EncryptDecryptMK" %>
And in the destination (target), aspx.cs code file I used
using EncryptDecryptMK;

lblpid.Text = EncDecMK.Decrypt(HttpUtility.UrlDecode(Request.QueryString["pid"].ToString()));
        lblrnumber.Text = EncDecMK.Decrypt(HttpUtility.UrlDecode(Request.QueryString["rnumber"].ToString()));

       lblfyear.Text = EncDecMK.Decrypt(HttpUtility.UrlDecode(Request.QueryString["financialyear"].ToString()));
