I have several hyperlinks on a asp.net web form that are getting the navigate URL value by using databinding.   I have no problem with displaying the links with the URL.    If no problem with navigate url value is returned for a hyperlink but I no value is return I want to hind the link by setting the visible property to false.   I am not sure how to do it.

Here is how I am getting the navigate URL value:

 <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" Visible="true" NavigateUrl='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "article_url")%>' runat="server">Click here for more information</asp:HyperLink>
                                 
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

This is how I'd do it. First, I'd add an override for the SaveStateComplete event in my code behind.

Then, in this event, I'd check to see if the value for the NavigateUrl for that element is string.Emtpy or null. If it is, then set the element to Visible = false.

Hi,

You hide like this.

 <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateUrl='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "article_url")%>' runat="server"
  Visible='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "article_url")!= null ? true : false  %>'>Click here for more information</asp:HyperLink>

Lokesh.....your example causes syntax errors.  

it runs a 'syntax error' and Error 11      'null' is not declared. 'Null' constant is no longer supported; use 'System.DBNull' instead.
