Default Hyperlink column in datagrid not working

Hello everyone,

I’m having trouble getting a hyperlink column to function correctly.

First some background:

I use VS.NET and Property Builder to set the settings for the hyperlink column.

The parameter I want to pass to the target page (what I type into the URL Field box) is "ParticipantID" and the URL (what I type into the URL Format String box) is: default.aspx?LoadControl=ParticipantDonationPage.a scx

Now the problem:

When I click on the hyperlink, the browser goes to the following URL:


Note the mysterious appearance of "/UserControls" after the site name and that the data in the participantId field was not passed as a parameter to the target page.

When I type the correct URL (add the ParticipantID parameter and excise "/UserControls") the user control loads and works.

I have a folder inside the site called "UserControls" where I keep all my user controls. Why in the world is the browser trying to access that folder? The appearance of /UserControls in the URL makes me think the problem may be due to the datagrid being in a user control

I don't know why the parameter ParticipantID isn't being passed.

If you know the solution to either of the problems above please, please help.

Thank you very much in advance,
