GridView Hyperlink field


M

Morris Neuman

Hi,

I have a GrideView which is bound to a datasourcecontrol. One of the
columns is a HyperLink to another web page passing it parameters. This
Hyperlink does not show as a hyperlink when viewing the grid. I have this
working on other pages but cannot get this to work. Don't know what I have
coded incorrectly. Please help.

Below is the definition of the GridView with the HyperLink field.


<asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" AllowPaging="True"
AllowSorting="True"
AutoGenerateColumns="False"
DataKeyNames="Account,MessageID,SpeechFileID,VOXDIR"
DataSourceID="AccessDataSource1"
Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="8pt" BorderColor="#FFC080"
BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" Width="579px" CellPadding="5"
CellSpacing="1" ForeColor="Navy" >
<Columns>
<asp:CommandField ShowEditButton="True" EditText="Edit Status" >
<ControlStyle Font-Bold="False" ForeColor="DarkSlateGray" />
<HeaderStyle BackColor="Lavender" />
<ItemStyle BackColor="Lavender" BorderColor="SlateGray"
BorderStyle="Inset" BorderWidth="2px" />
</asp:CommandField>

<asp:HyperLinkField DataNavigateUrlFields="SpeechFileID,VOXDIR"
DataNavigateUrlFormatString="EmailMsg2.aspx?SpeechFileID{0}&VOXDIR{1}"
Text="Email Message2 via HLink" >
</asp:HyperLinkField>

</Columns>
<RowStyle BackColor="BlanchedAlmond" />
<EmptyDataTemplate>
No messages for selected mailbox
</EmptyDataTemplate>
<HeaderStyle BorderColor="#FFC080" Font-Bold="False"
BackColor="#FFC080" />
<AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="SeaShell" />
<PagerSettings Mode="NumericFirstLast" Position="TopAndBottom" />
</asp:GridView>

Hi Morris,

As for the GridView Hyperlink column, I've performed some local test via
the page source you provided. I use a self generated DataTable as
datasource and remain the other Gridview column setting unchanged. It seems
the hyperlink can display correctly:

Here is the completely test page(aspx and codebehind), you can directly run
them in a test page on your side and compare with the problem page:

==============================
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div>
<asp:GridView ID="GridView2" runat="server" AllowPaging="True"
AllowSorting="True"
AutoGenerateColumns="False"
DataKeyNames="SpeechFileID,VOXDIR"

Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="8pt" BorderColor="#FFC080"
BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" Width="579px" CellPadding="5"
CellSpacing="1" ForeColor="Navy" >
<Columns>
<asp:CommandField ShowEditButton="True" EditText="Edit Status" >
<ControlStyle Font-Bold="False" ForeColor="DarkSlateGray" />
<HeaderStyle BackColor="Lavender" />
<ItemStyle BackColor="Lavender" BorderColor="SlateGray"
BorderStyle="Inset" BorderWidth="2px" />
</asp:CommandField>

<asp:HyperLinkField DataNavigateUrlFields="SpeechFileID,VOXDIR"
DataNavigateUrlFormatString="EmailMsg2.aspx?SpeechFileID{0}&VOXDIR{1}"
Text="Email Message2 via HLink" >
</asp:HyperLinkField>

</Columns>
<RowStyle BackColor="BlanchedAlmond" />
<EmptyDataTemplate>
No messages for selected mailbox
</EmptyDataTemplate>
<HeaderStyle BorderColor="#FFC080" Font-Bold="False"
BackColor="#FFC080" />
<AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="SeaShell" />
<PagerSettings Mode="NumericFirstLast" Position="TopAndBottom" />
</asp:GridView>

</div>
</form>
</body>
=============================

===============code behind============
public partial class DataTestPage : System.Web.UI.Page
{
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
if (!IsPostBack)
{
Bind_Test_Data();
}
}

void Bind_Test_Data()
{
DataTable dt = new DataTable("TestTable");

dt.Columns.Add("SpeechFileID");
dt.Columns.Add("VOXDIR");

for (int i = 0; i < 10; ++i)
{
dt.Rows.Add("SpeechFile_" + i, "VOXDIR_" + i);
}

GridView2.DataSource = dt;
GridView2.DataBind();
}
}
=============================

If there is anything unclear or any further finding, please feel free to
post here.

Cannot get my code to work. I have a similar grid on another page with
hyperlink data navigation URL and that work.

Anyway, I created a column with a template field and then placed the
hyperlink in the template and that seems to work.

Thanks for your help.
