    The Hyperlink column is kind of a pain in the ass if we can't set an Eval() statement on NavigateUrl directly in the markup...

    Will this ever be fixed?  We can do it with a TemplateColumns controls fine...doesn't make it easy to use if you always have to use ItemDataBound everytime we need a simple nav column

    Hello Steve,

    The TreeList columns are not binding containers (the TreeList rows are) and that is the reason you cannot use Eval/Bind expressions for column properties. For the template columns you can inject binding expressions as part of their header, item, etc. templates. Let me know if I am missing something here.

    For the HyperLink TreeList column in particular, you may consider using its DataTextField to specify column in the source from which the text values will be populated.
