Default Chapter 13

Hello Imar ,

I was trying to do the exercise 3 of the chapter 13 about LINQ. I did exactly as you wrote in the answer of that exercise, but i got the following error ;

"Input string was not in a correct format."

I got this error for the following line :

Code:
<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" NavigateUrl='<%#  "PictureDetails.aspx?Id=" + Eval("Id") %>' >
Can you please help me to solve this problem ?
Thanks.

Hello,

I'm far from the expert, but at quick glance it looks like you forgot to call the ToString() method against the Eval as follows to match the Exercise 3 solution on page 678:

Code:
Eval("Id").ToString()

Yep, John is correct. This is a bug in the answer of the exercise. Check out the errata section:

It's (currently) the last item in the list.

Cheers,
