Come on - give it a go yourself - we wont laugh I promise :)

Couple of hints:
  • Len(string) <=> string.Length
  • Right(string,num) <=> string.Substring(string.Length - num)
  • OrElse <=> ||

Or just use on of the many free tools:


Also, you are doing the following operation twice:

Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem, "Name").ToString())
It would be better to assign this value to a temporary variable and then your second line becomes:

hl.Text = Right(filename, Len(filename)-4)
Much easier to read I think you'll agree.
