High-Lighting the href tag that was Clicked Last in DataList in .Net

Hi Team,

I want to highlight href tag when I click it. As of now I am able to highlight it on mouse over but in order to keep it highlighted what I can do ?

In the below code I am using "categoryID" as href, on mouse over I can make it highlighted but after click how can I keep it highlighted ?


<div class="leftlinkpan">
                    <h6>
                        Projects Category
                    </h6>
                    <ul>
                   
                        <li>
                            <asp:DataList ID="DlProject1" runat="server" RepeatColumns="1" RepeatDirection="Horizontal"
                                OnItemDataBound="DlProject1_ItemDataBound">
                                <ItemTemplate>
                                 
                                        <a href='Project3.aspx?categoryID=<%#Eval("categoryID")%>' class="active">
                                            <%#Eval("categoryName")%>
                                        </a>
                           
                                </ItemTemplate>
                            </asp:DataList>
                     
                        </li>
                    </ul>
                </div>

 Looking forward to hearing from you.
