    i want to give my radGrid's TemplateItem control the following textbinding from my Linq2Sql object which has a user2id propertie foreign key:

    Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"User2.lastname").ToString() %>'

    but what can i do to handle the case that the user2id foreign key is null which makes the User2 object null?

    is there a chance to handle it in the asp code?

    Or do i have to catch the user2id instead of the User2 object and use it in codebehind with the ItemDataBound?

    thx, Mario

    Hello Mario,

    Just remove the ToString() method call from the binding expression.

    I hope this helps.
