I am using a GridHyperLinkColumn with an ImageUrl defined. This produces a column with an image as the hyperlink. I want to add an ALT or Title tag to the image so that the end-user will know what clicking the image will do. There does not appear to be an "alt" or "title" property for the GridHyperLinkColumn. I've tried using the "text" property, but it does not work. Also, using the "HeaderText" property is not an option as I have the headers blank for those columns. Below is a sample of my code:

<telerik:GridHyperLinkColumn
ItemStyle-Width="20px" 
UniqueName="EditStudent"
ImageUrl="~/Common_Images/icons/View_Student.gif"
HeaderText=""
DataNavigateUrlFields="UserId"
DataNavigateUrlFormatString="~/Secure/EditStudent.aspx?uid={0}"
AllowFiltering="False" />

The screen shot shows four columns, each a separate GridHyperLinkColumn. The "Student" column (obfuscated) is a standard GridBoundColumn.

Any help is appreciated....

Found the solution....I needed to use the DataTextField and DataTextFormatString properties. 
So the code should look like:

<telerik:GridHyperLinkColumn
ItemStyle-Width="20px"
UniqueName="EditStudent"
ImageUrl="~/Common_Images/icons/View_Student.gif"
HeaderText=""
DataTextField="StudentName"
DataTextFormatString="Edit {0}"
DataNavigateUrlFields="UserId"
DataNavigateUrlFormatString="~/Secure/EditStudent.aspx?uid={0}"
AllowFiltering="False" />
