Default Displaying Url from database in Status Bar


Is there a way to hide the link that displays in the Status bar with a url from database? OnMouseOver show DisplayURL from database and OnMouseOut sets value to 'noting'. The code snipet below works when it is displayed in a browser BUT doesn't allow me to return to Design view in VS.NET with error "Could not open in Design view. Quote values differently inside a '<%..."value"...%>' block."

<a href='<%# Container.DataItem("RealURL") %>' onMouseOver="MM_displayStatusMsg('<%# Container.DataItem("DisplayUrl") %>');return document.MM_returnValue" onMouseOut="MM_displayStatusMsg('');return document.MM_returnValue"><%# Container.DataItem("Name") %></a>

I have a clue of what's happening but can't seem to get it working. Any help? thanks

<a href="products.html"
onMouseOver="window.status='Learn about our products';return true;"
onMouseOut="window.status='';return true;">

Try that format. It might be the quotes and also look for the ';'. Javascript requires it.

single quotes in blue. double quotes in red.
