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

Hi

In my aspx page HTML I have

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

I am trying to create a hyperlink to
applicationroot \FileUploads\Fi lename.FileExte nsion.

At the moment it instead generates

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

If I try

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

it generates

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

whereas I want

http://localhost/MyWebApplication/Fi....FileExtension

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Figured it out.

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

For anyone who'se interested.

Hi all, For some reason this bind is calling the donothing function, like it should, but is then allowing the text to be inserted into the Text widget. Here is the code: self.framebody.tag_config("name", underline=1) self.framebody.tag_bind("name", "<Any-KeyPress>", self.donothing)

Hi! How do I check if "date" exists before using that code? I've built a RSSreader and sometimes there's a date in it and sometimes not. How can I check if it exists to avoid crash (DataBinder.Eval: 'System.Data.DataRowView' does not contain a property with the name date) <asp:DataGrid id="RssNewsGrid"

Hi: Is it possible to apply formatting to above statements which insert field values into HTML when binding to a datasource using Repeater control? For example, I would like to trim trailing spaces. Also, I have tried things like this, but can't get them to work: <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "lname") + ((DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "some_field")=="")?"":", ") + DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "fname")%>

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
