I spent a fair amount of time nailing this one down so I figured I’d better record it for future reference.

From within your gridview section add your columns and change one of the columns to a template then you can manipulate what shows up for that column.

<asp:HyperLink ID=”HyperLink1″ runat=”server” Font-Underline=”True”
NavigateUrl=<%# String.Format(“javascript:void(window.open(‘http://intranet/somepage.aspx?parameter1=” & Eval(“gridviewColumnName1”) & “&parameter2=” & Eval(“gridviewColumnName2”) &  
“‘,’_blank’,’width=750,height=700,toolbar=no,status=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=no’))”, Eval(“gridviewColumnName1”)) %>
Text='<%# Bind(“gridviewColumnName1”) %>’></asp:HyperLink>

What you end up with is a hyperlink that looks something like this:


So the hyperlink will popup a window and take you to your specified page and passes 2 parameters to the page that can then be acted upon.

Hopefully this makes sense.  It does to me right now, but who knows when I come back to it later!  :)

Note:  many times when you copy and paste this sort of code into your environment you’ll have to change the apostrophes because they get replaced with a backwards apostrophe which will cause problems.
