HyperLinkField missing in 2.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using .Net Framework 2.0 (and VWD 2005 Express) and cannot find the control HyperLinkField in the toolbox. I have the HyperLink, but not the HyperLinkField where I can use the databound field in the Gridview as part of my URL to another page. When I right click in the tollbox, HyperLinkField does not show as a control to add to the toolbox. What do I need to be able to get this control and start using it?

  • Hi NancyJ58,

    Thank you for your post.

    For HyperLinkField, it's the field that is displayed as a hyperlink in a data-bound control. It seems not to be the control in the Toolbox. That's why we cannot find it as control in the Toolbox.
    For more information on HyperLinkField, please refer to:

    We can find this field in the GridView as the following screen shot:

    Could you please help me to check that?
