I have one field that has the ip address of a printer, when you type the ip address of a printer in explorer the printers web page opens.
right now the ip address is stored in a string format and in a boundfield because I don't want anyone editing the cell.
Have tried to make the column hyperlink but it says data is of wrong type.
data stored in field is http:\\192.168.9.159
the data comes from a datatable that I create in memory and is bound to my gridview; so it is not connected to a database.
I would like to be able to click on this cell and have explorer open the printer.
The question here is do I change the data to a different format? somehow change the column in the gridview? The question boils down to, how do I make the cell a hyperlink and what format do I have to put in the datatable so this works.
