Remarks

Use the NavigateUrl property to specify the URL to navigate to when a hyperlink in a HyperLinkField object is clicked. When this property is set, each hyperlink shares the same navigation URL.

Instead of using this property to set the URL for the hyperlinks, you can use the DataNavigateUrlFields property to bind the URLs of the hyperlinks to a field in a data source. This allows you to have a different URL for each hyperlink.

Note

If the DataNavigateUrlFields and NavigateUrl properties are both set, the DataNavigateUrlFields property takes precedence.
