Link.NavigateUrl Property

Sets or returns the target URL of the link. The default value is an empty string (""). This API is obsolete. For information about how to develop ASP.NET mobile applications, see the Web site.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.MobileControls
Assembly:  System.Web.Mobile (in System.Web.Mobile.dll)

public string NavigateUrl { get; set; }
<asp:Link NavigateUrl="String" />

Property Value

Type: System.String
The target URL of the link.

If the link to an image is unspecified (the NavigateUrl property contains an empty string ("")), the link will not be interactive.

If the value of the NavigateUrl property begins with a number symbol (#), the remainder of the value is assumed to be the identifier of a form on the current MobilePage. Otherwise, the value of the NavigateUrl property is treated as a URL. When a link is rendered, the text writer writes the underlying Text property. If the Text property is empty, the text writer writes the NavigateUrl property.


If your application relies on cookieless sessions, or might receive requests from devices that require cookieless sessions, using a tilde ("~") in a path can inadvertently result in creating a new session and potentially losing session data. To set a property with a path such as ("~/path"), resolve the path using ResolveUrl("~/path") before assigning it to the property.
