Empty String

Hi,
I am using GridView in C#

<asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton5" CommandArgument='<%# Eval("EmailAddress") %>' CommandName="LinkEmail" runat="server" Visible="true" HeaderStyle-Width="10%"><%#Eval("EmailAddress")%></asp:LinkButton>

Open in new window


I am trying to pass email to a javascript
   protected void recordListContact_RowCommand(object sender, GridViewCommandEventArgs e)
    {


        if (e.CommandName == "LinkEmail")
        {
            string EmailAddress = e.CommandArgument.ToString();

            ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, GetType(), "myFunction", "SendEmail(" + EmailAddress + ");", true);
            

        }

    }

Open in new window


But the string always returns empty, it works when passing the int. Any ideas? thanks

When you say the string returns empty, do you mean the JavaScript result or the C# e.CommandArgument.ToString() ?  If the former, don't forget to add your single quotes on the function if you're using a string:
"SendEmail('" + EmailAddress + "');";
