Hyperlink Column

GridViewHyperlinkColumn derives from the GridViewBoundColumnBase class and its content is represented by a HyperlinkButton control.

Properties

Here's a list of properties that the column exposes:

  • DataMemberBinding: Here you need to specify the property of the business object which is the actual link that will be navigated to. The type of the property can be a Uri or a plain string.

  • ContentBinding: You can specify the property of the business object to be displayed as the value in the cell. If this binding is not specified, the actual link provided as the DataMemberBinding is displayed.

  • TargetName: Gets or sets the name of a target window or frame for the hyperlink.

Defining the Data

For the purposes of this article we will assume that the data objects expose Name and TeamUrl properties as defined in Example 1.

Example 1: The Club class

public class Club : ViewModelBase 
{    
    private string name; 
    public string Name 
    { 
        get { return this.name; } 
        set 
        { 
            if (value != this.name) 
            { 
                this.name = value; 
                this.OnPropertyChanged("Name"); 
            } 
        } 
    } 
 
    private string teamUrl; 
    public string TeamUrl 
    { 
        get { return this.teamUrl; } 
        set 
        { 
            if (value != this.teamUrl) 
            { 
                this.teamUrl = value; 
                this.OnPropertyChanged("TeamUrl"); 
            } 
        } 
    } 
} 
Public Class Club 
    Inherits ViewModelBase       
 
    Private m_name As String 
    Public Property Name() As String 
        Get 
            Return Me.m_name 
        End Get 
        Set(ByVal value As String) 
            If value <> Me.m_name Then 
                Me.m_name = value 
                Me.OnPropertyChanged("Name") 
            End If 
        End Set 
    End Property 
 
    Private m_teamUrl As String 
    Public Property TeamUrl() As String 
        Get 
            Return Me.m_teamUrl 
        End Get 
        Set(value As String) 
            If value <> Me.m_teamUrl Then 
                Me.m_teamUrl = value 
                Me.OnPropertyChanged("TeamUrl") 
            End If 
        End Set 
    End Property 
End Class 

If you bind the RadGridView control to a collection of Club objects, you can define the GridViewHyperlinkColumn column as shown in Example 2.

Example 2: Define GridViewHyperlinkColumn in XAML

<telerik:RadGridView x:Name="radGridView" ItemsSource="{Binding Clubs}" AutoGenerateColumns="False"> 
    <telerik:RadGridView.Columns> 
        <telerik:GridViewHyperlinkColumn Header="Team Url" DataMemberBinding="{Binding TeamUrl}" ContentBinding="{Binding Name}" /> 
    </telerik:RadGridView.Columns> 
</telerik:RadGridView> 
Figure 1 illustrates the result of the code in Example 1.
