Hello,

I use the serverside OnItemDataBound event to apply custom format condition logic.

In some columns I prefix the .Text-property of the TableCell with additional Information.

This works fine, but fails with HyperLinkColumns, as the .Text-Property only contains " ". When I know change the Text property by prefixing it with something, the actual Hyperlink is not rendered, but myprefix + " "

How can I change this behaviour?

best regards and thanks in advance

Ulrik

Hello Ulrik,

For setting new text to GridHyperLinkColumn access the Hyperlink control first and then set its text like below.

ASPX:
<telerik:GridHyperLinkColumn DataTextFormatString="Search Google for '{0}'" DataNavigateUrlFields="CompanyName" UniqueName="GridHyperLinkColumn" DataNavigateUrlFormatString="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q={0}&btnG=Google+Search" DataTextField="CompanyName">
</telerik:GridHyperLinkColumn>

C#:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
 {
  if (e.Item is GridDataItem)
   {
     GridDataItem item = (GridDataItem)e.Item;
     HyperLink link = (HyperLink)item["GridHyperLinkColumn"].Controls[0];  //accessing Hyperlink control
     link.Text =  "new text"+link.Text ; // setting new text
   }
 }

Thanks,
Princy.
