System.Web.UI.WebControls (system.web.dll)class

The HyperLinkColumn class represents a column that can be used in a DataGrid control. To have a column with the same hyperlink in every row, you can set Text (the displayed anchor text) and NavigateUrl (the link destination). Alternatively, you can bind a data field to the DataTextField and DataNavigateUrlField properties (which will then take precedence over any set values for the Text and NavigateUrl properties). Typically, this information will be specified by using a data binding expression in a template definition in the .aspx file.

Additionally, you can set the Target property to indicate the target window or frame name for the hyperlink. You can also use the DataTextFormatString property to provide a custom format string to use with the DataTextField property.
