Need syntax help building hyperlink

I am having problems with syntax in this function.    It checks the value of every data item in the ItemTemplate of an ASP Repeater. If “_” is found it sets the whole line as a hyperlink, otherwise just displays the line. It is finding the “_” , displaying the text, but the hyperlink is not active.

            <td class="style14"> <%# CheckValue(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "recaPrintScreen").ToString())%> </td>

[aspx.vb page]
Public Function CheckValue(v As [String]) As [String]
   If (Left(v, 3)).Contains("_") Then
        Return "<asp:HyperLink " + "ID=HyperLinkCheckValue " + "target=_blank " + "runat=server " +
               " NavigateUrl=./foo.aspx?SearchNumber=" + strSearchNum + "&src=IOD" + "&cty=" + currentCounty + "&plead=" +
               _strPleadingType + "&type=" + strPleadingTypeDetail + "'>" + v + "</asp:HyperLink>"
       Return v
    End If
End Function

At that point I would just write out the HTML:
If (Left(v, 3)).Contains("_") Then
 Return "<a " + "ID='HyperLinkCheckValue' " + "target='_blank' "  + 
               " href='./foo.aspx?SearchNumber=" + strSearchNum + "&src=IOD" + "&cty=" + currentCounty + "&plead=" +
               _strPleadingType + "&type=" + strPleadingTypeDetail + "'>" + v + "</a>"

       Return v
    End If
