HyperLinkColumn.NavigateUrl Property

Gets or sets the URL to link to when a hyperlink in the column is clicked.

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

public virtual string NavigateUrl { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_NavigateUrl ()

/** @property */
public void set_NavigateUrl (String value)

public function get NavigateUrl () : String

public function set NavigateUrl (value : String)

Property Value

The URL to link to when a hyperlink in the column is clicked.

Use the NavigateUrl property to specify the URL to link to when a hyperlink in the column is clicked.


When this property is set, all hyperlinks in the column share the same URL link.

To provide a separate URL for each hyperlink in the column, use the DataNavigateUrlField property.


The DataNavigateUrlField and NavigateUrl properties cannot both be set at the same time. If both properties are set, the DataNavigateUrlField property takes precedence.

The following example demonstrates how to use the NavigateUrl property to specify the URL to link to for hyperlinks in the HyperLinkColumn. Notice that all hyperlinks in the column link to the same page.


The following code sample uses the single-file code model and may not work correctly if copied directly into a code-behind file. This code sample must be copied into an empty text file that has an .aspx extension. For more information on the Web Forms code model, see ASP.NET Web Page Code Model.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="True" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>



   <script runat="server">

      ICollection CreateDataSource() 
         DataTable dt = new DataTable();
         DataRow dr;

         dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("IntegerValue", typeof(Int32)));
         dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("PriceValue", typeof(Double)));
         for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) 
            dr = dt.NewRow();

            dr[0] = i;
            dr[1] = (Double)i * 1.23;


         DataView dv = new DataView(dt);
         return dv;

      void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e) 
         MyDataGrid.DataSource = CreateDataSource();




   <form runat="server">

      <h3>HyperLinkColumn Example<h3>

      <asp:DataGrid id="MyDataGrid" 

         <HeaderStyle BackColor="#aaaadd"/>


                 HeaderText="Select an Item"
                 Text="Click Me"
