HyperLink Class

A control that displays a link to another Web page.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public class HyperLink : WebControl
public class HyperLink extends WebControl
public class HyperLink extends WebControl
Not applicable.

Use the HyperLink control to create a link to another Web page. The HyperLink control is typically displayed as text specified by the Text property. It can also be displayed as an image specified by the ImageUrl property.

If both the Text and ImageUrl properties are set, the ImageUrl property takes precedence. If the image is unavailable, the text in the Text property is displayed. In browsers that support ToolTip functionality, the Text property also becomes the ToolTip.

Caution noteCaution:

This control can be used to display user input, which might include malicious client script. Check any information that is sent from a client for executable script, SQL statements, or other code before displaying it in your application. ASP.NET provides an input request validation feature to block script and HTML in user input. Validation server controls are also provided to assess user input. For more information, see Validation Server Controls.

Accessibility

The markup rendered by default for this control might not conform to accessibility standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG) priority 1 guidelines. For details about accessibility support for this control, see ASP.NET Controls and Accessibility.

The following example demonstrates how to create a HyperLink control on a Web page that links to another Web page.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="True" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<body>
<form id="Form1" runat="server">

   <h3>HyperLink Example</h3>

   Click on the HyperLink:<br />  

   <asp:HyperLink id="hyperlink1" 
                  ImageUrl="images/pict.jpg"
