Hyperlink column/cell with values from another cell

Hi there,

i wonder if it's possible to format a (bound!) cell value as hyperlink with values from another cell (same row).

Let's assume i've a user model in place containing a "Name" and a "UserId" property. What i#d like to achieve is something like this:

(c => c.Name).Format("<a rel='nofollow' href=\"User/UserSummary?userId={UserId}\">{Name}</a>");
The value (for sorting/grouping etc.) should use the "Name" but for link it supposed to be formated with the values of "UserId". Unfornately this approach gives me an "Input string was not in a correct format." FormatException.

It seems that the GridRender "forgets" the values of the row for a bound column and only uses the cell itself, while the format for an unbound column is capable of using the row values.

Is there any way to achieve a hyperlinked column for bound columns with values from another cell/column to pass within the link?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Steffen,

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

We suggest you to handle QueryCellInfo to achieve your requirement. Please refer to the code snippet below to achieve this.


  @( Html.Syncfusion().Grid<Sample.Models.JSONOrder>('SampleGrid')
                cell => Html.RenderAction('onQueryCellAction''Home'new { args = cell })


        public ActionResult Index(PagingParams args)
            IEnumerable data = GridOrders;
            var engine = data.GridActions<JSONOrder>() as GridHtmlActionResult<JSONOrder>;
            engine.GridModel.QueryCellInfo = onQueryCellAction;
            return engine;
        public void onQueryCellAction(GridTableCell<JSONOrder> args)
            if (args.TableCellType == GridTableCellType.RecordFieldCell || args.TableCellType == GridTableCellType.AlternateRecordFieldCell)
                if (args.Column.MappingName == 'EmployeeID')
                    args.Text = '<a class='TemplateCell' rel='nofollow' href='Home/Load?id='+args.Data.OrderID+''>' + args.Data.EmployeeID + '</a>';

Please refer to the below link to download the sample application.


Please let me know if you have any concern.
