Adding a ToolTip to an ASP.NET Hyperlink Control in a GridView

I recently came across a cool solution proposed by Jose to add a tooltip to an ASP.NET Hyperlink control kept inside a GridView. The solution is to create a template field and add a Hyperlink control to it as shown below:

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="SomeLink">
<
ItemTemplate>
<
asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server"
NavigateUrl='<%# Eval("SomeLink") %>' Text='<%# Eval("SomeLink") %>'
ToolTip='<%# Eval("SomeText") %>'>
</
asp:HyperLink>
</
ItemTemplate>
</
asp:TemplateField>



Will you give this article a +1 ? Thanks in advance
