Include value of databinder in request querystring in asp.net project

I am trying to include the value returned by the databinder value in the navigate URL of a hyperlink

I am trying to use the following but keep getting errors

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl="~/viewer.aspx?Rec_ID=<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Rec_ID")%>">"Read More</asp:HyperLink>

I'm not sure what I am missing but would appreciate any help anybody can give.  I keep getting a 'server tag not well formed' error.

Use it like this:
<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Rec_ID", "~/viewer.aspx?Rec_ID={0}")%>'>Read More</asp:HyperLink>

Open in new window

This is one of very few situations where you cannot use double quotes for an attribute. Furthermore, you cannot mix literals and server side code as usual, you need to supply the attribute value as one call, using the formatting argument as I showed above. See for more information: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/2d76z3ck%28v=vs.110%29.aspx
