Using HtmlAnchor Or Hyperlink For Anchor Tag That Navigates In-page Named Anchor?

Apr 7, 2010

I am trying to render a simple hyperlink that links to a named anchor within the page, for example:

<a href="#namedAnchor">scroll to down</a>
<a name="namedAnchor">down</a>

The problem is that when I use an ASP.NET control like asp:HyperLink or HtmlAnchor, the href="#namedAnchor" is rendered as href="controls/#namedAnchor" (where controls is the subdirectory where the user control containing the anchor is). Here is the code for the control, using two types of anchor controls, which both have the same problem:


I am using the HtmlAnchor or HyperLink class because I want to make changes to other attributes in the code behind. I do not want to introduce a custom web control for this requirement, as the requirement I'm pursuing is not that important enough to justify abandoning the traditional ASP.NET link controls. It seems like I should be able to use the ASP.NET link controls to generate the desired link.

Nov 17, 2010

I have a Master.aspx and a Page1.aspx and Page2.aspx, all in the same directory.


<asp:HyperLink NavigateUrl="Page1.aspx" runat="server" Text="Page 1" />
<asp:HyperLink NavigateUrl="Page2.aspx" runat="server" Text="Page 2" />

both the Page1 and Page2 gets rendered from above master page.

all three are in a vertual directory which is mapped as a subdomain here are the details:

now when I open any of the page say:

the Hyperlinks are rendered containing



On click of them it takes me to

I can achive the same by using <a> but i need them on the code behind too so thats not desired.

Note: using <a> with runat server also behaves in the same way HyperLink does.

Routing To An Anchor On Another Page?

Jun 20, 2010

I am using Web Forms Routing in ASP.NET 4 and I am trying to route to a specific location on a page. On that page I have an element like <div id="3"> and I'd like to jump to this anchor from another page. For this purpose I have defined a Route in global.asax:

RouteTable.Routes.MapPageRoute("MyRoute", "Path/SubPath/{PageAnchor}",
"~/MyPage.aspx", true, new RouteValueDictionary { { "PageAnchor", null } });

The HyperLink to link to that page and the anchor "3" is defined this way in markup:

<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server"
NavigateUrl="<%$ RouteUrl:RouteName=MyRoute,PageAnchor=#3 %>">

The problem with the generated link is that the # character in the URL gets encoded by %23 this way: http://localhost:1234/Path/SubPath/%233 so that I reach the target page but not at the specified anchor.Is there a way to avoid this unwished URL-encoding? Or any other way to route to an anchor?

AJAX :: Use Anchor In Tab Control Page?

Jan 13, 2010

I have a TabControl (Ajax Control Toolkit 1.0.10618.0) with 6 Tab Pages. On 1 Tab Page I have several internal anchors. I want to use URLs ike [URL]. This link opens Document ID 123 but it does not jump to Link2, probably because Link2 is on the 4th Tab page so it's not displayed initially. All these anchors only appear on the 4th tab but I could not set the 4th tab as general default tab because the 1st tab should be the default tab. When I manually open 4th and call the URL again then it's working fine. So I thought to inspect the Request.URL for '#Link' and , if found, switch to Tab4 automatically, but '#Link' does not appear anywhere in Request.URL.Is there a way to jump to an anchor on a currently not-opened tab?

Forms Data Controls :: Anchor Hyperlinkfield To Boundfield On Another Page?

Sep 24, 2010

I have a gridview on a page with a hyperlinkfield that passes two parameters to a gridview on another page.

Here's the code for the gridview on first page:

<asp:GridView runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" GridLines="None"
<asp:HyperLinkField Target="_blank" DataNavigateUrlFields="gtn_run_num,catg_custom_desc" HeaderText="Wages" DataNavigateUrlFormatString="~/Help/HelpPay.aspx?gtn_run_num={0}&catg_custom_desc={1}"/>


What I am trying to do is open the second page to the point in the page where the boundfield valueon the second page matches the hyperlinkfield value selected on the first page. I'd essentially like to anchor the two pages based on a value being passed (catg_custom_desc).

How To Use An Eval In Anchor Tag Href

Apr 4, 2011

What I am trying to achieve is to use an Eval as parameter in my anchor tag's href. The anchor is nested inside a repeater, why I cannot use the code behind to achieve this.

I have tried a few things without any luck.

<a href="http://MyWebsite/ActiveUsers?ID=InsertEvalHere"><%# Eval("Name")%></a>

The following code below is what I have tried to do:

<a href="<% "http://MyWebsite/ActiveUsers?ID=" + DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem("ID"))%>"><%# Eval("Name")%></a>
<a href="<% "http://MyWebsite/ActiveUsers?ID=" + Eval("ID")%>"><%# Eval("Name")%></a>
<a href="http://MyWebsite/ActiveUsers?ID=<% DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem("ID"))%>"><%# Eval("Name")%></a>
<a href="http://MyWebsite/ActiveUsers?ID=<%# Eval("ID")%>"><%# Eval("Name")%></a>

None of the above seemed to be right, as I keep getting this error - The tag is not well formed.

How should I handle this?

C# - Javascript Anchor Jump To The Top?

Aug 11, 2010

I've added this code below to a MOSS 2007 web part inside OnPreRender() method.

if (!Page.ClientScript.IsClientScriptBlockRegistered("jump_to_anchor_JS"))
Page.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), "jump_to_anchor_JS", "window.location.hash="anchor";",true);

The page loads, jumps to the specific anchor, then jumps back to the top of the page. This has been tested in IE8, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari with same behavior.

MVC :: Dynamically Fill An Anchor Tag At Runtime?

Mar 31, 2011

I want to create a mailto anchor tag at runtime. Is this possible? I've tried this:


Neither of these worked. I tried adding the "mailto:" in front of the {0}, but this just became part of the perceived URL. I read a post online about using data attributes to add the value as a property of a class, but I can't do that, as I'm stuck using .NET 3.5 for this project. I honestly didn't think this was going to be such a big deal. I just want to populate the email address of the anchor tag with a variable value.

VS 2010 - Changed LinkButton To Anchor

May 2, 2012

This used to be what my code looked like:

<asp:Repeater ID="rptrDocuments" runat="server"
onitemdatabound="rptrDocuments_ItemDataBound" onitemcommand="rptrDocuments_ItemCommand" >
<tr><td class="approval-item">
<asp:RadioButtonList id="rblApprove" runat="server" RepeatLayout="UnorderedList">


I was working with a linkbutton in a repeater. I was resolving the linkbutton like so in the code-behind:

// - It's not this anymore. Changed for Jim's styling.
//LinkButton linkPdf;
//linkPdf = (LinkButton)e.Item.FindControl("lbLinkToPdfFile");
//linkPdf.Text = drView.Row.ItemArray[IDX_DOCUMENT].ToString();
//linkPdf.CommandArgument = drView.Row.ItemArray[IDX_DOCUMENT].ToString();
// - Now it's this:
// <span class="options"><a href="file:X2">View File</a> | <a href="mailto:X1">Email Sender</a></span>

The designer had to style this page and asked if it could be an anchor instead of a linkbutton. I said sure. But now I am not sure how to "find" it in the code behind and set "a href=file:the file that needs to open when they click the link". I'll have the same problem with the email link.
