<newbie> HyperLinkField

Hi

asp.net 2.0

I'm trying to implement a HyperLinkField into my GridView.. The
SqlDataSource returns a field which is paths to files (each row in the
GridView should have link to a file).

I've specified DataTextFields and DataNavigationU rlFields with the column
name which holds the path to the document. But the GridView doesn't create a
link, it just displays it as text...

what I do wrong here?

This path is local. To make the document available for all your
visitors you should change the path to "/Documents/test.txt" if "c:
\website1" is the root directory of your website.

Did you consider turning the HyperLinkField into a TemplateField? This gives
better flexability in the control of what happens with your link. I almost
never use HyperLinkFields for that reason. It also lets me do custom code
behind the link clicks and stuff (if you need to do that). By chance you
want to use a TemplateField and put a HyperLink control there instead, then
the HyperLinks should look like this:

<asp:HyperLin k id="link" NavigateUrl='<% # Eval("ski") %>' ...
</asp:HyperLink>

I have been researching articles on google on how to create a simple RSS feed that sucks <title><blurb><link><date> out of a sql server 2000 database via an aspx page. I know it has to be pushed into a <xml> document but not sure which direction to take. Is there perhaps a starter document which uses sql server as the data source I can tap into.

hi asp.net 3.5 (project upgraded from asp.net 2.0). are using vwd2008 express now This is my first ajax attempt. The code below shows a TextBox and a ListBox.

The OnTextChanged event isn't even fired when I type in the textbox.
