Using 2008 Q3, DOT NET 3.5

I have a couple of problems with the Hyperlink column (I am building the grid in Code Behind)

Setting the displayed text.

DataTextFormatString = "CONST"
DataTextField = Nothing

Result blank cell.

Yes, I can work out that ther eis no DataTextField and set the Text Property instead, but why do I have to.


Setting the URL.

DataNavigateUrlFormatString = "~/xxxxx.aspx"
DataNavigateUrlFields = Empty

Te column does not render as a hyperlink.

Hello Andrew,

To specify the text of the link, you can do one of the following:

    * Set the Text property to a static value. When you use this method, every link appears the same in the entire column.
    * Set the DataTextField property to a field that supplies the text for the link. When you use this method, you can format the text that comes from the database by setting the DataTextFormatString property.

To specify the target of the hyperlink, set the DataNavigateUrlFields property. You can specify multiple fields if the target of the hyperlink is determined by more than one field in the database. You can then combine the navigate URL fields by specifying a format string as the value of the DataNavigateUrlFormatString property.
