How do I add text to gridview template boundfields
  <asp:CheckBox ID="chkPFRequired" runat="server" Checked='<%# Bind("PF_REQUIRED") %>' Enabled="false" ToolTip='<%# Bind("PDM_PASSED_TO_TL")%>' />

Open in new window

Ideally, what I want to do is have 2 separate bound values and some text in the same tooltip.


 ToolTip=" passed to " + '<%# Bind("PDM_PASSED_TO_TL")%>' + "ON" +'<%# Bind("2ND BOUND FIELD")%>'   />

OK, I've part solved it.

But would still like to hardcode text into this...
ToolTip='<%#Eval("PDM_PASSED_TO_TL").ToString() + ", " + Eval("PDM_TO_TL_COMPLETED_DATESTAMP").ToString() %>'

Open in new window

Hi edjones1,

You can replace the value "PDM_PASSED_TO_TL" and "PDM_TO_TL_COMPLETED_DATESTAMP" to database field name.

ToolTip='<%# string.Concat(Eval("PDM_PASSED_TO_TL"), " ,", Eval("PDM_TO_TL_COMPLETED_DATESTAMP"))%>'

ToolTip='<%# string.Concat(Eval("FirstName"), " ", Eval("LastName"))%>'
