Href and <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Name") %> ?


In my aspx page HTML I have

<a href='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Name") %>'> <%#
DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Name") %>

I am trying to create a hyperlink to
applicationroot\FileUploads\Filename.FileExtension .

At the moment it instead generates

http://localhost/MyWebApplication/Th....FileExtension .

If I try

<a href="~/FileUploads/"'<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Name")
%>'> <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Name") %>

it generates


whereas I want


Any suggestions?

Figured it out.

<a href='<%# Server.MapPath("~/FileUploads/")%>
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Name") %>'>
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "Name") %>

For anyone who'se interested.
