Description

Currently the HyperLinkField is pretty much unusable because it does not provide an UrlEncode boolean property. Basically, if the formatted value contains any non-alphanumeric character (a space for example!) then the link rendered HyperLinkField does not work any more.

Thanks for your feedback on the .NET Framework! S. Somasegar, the Developer Division VP recently wrote in his blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/somasegar/archive/2006/05/18/601354.aspx) on how the next release of the .NET Framework (codename “Orcas”) requires a high degree of backward compatibility and therefore, how we are being very strict about the number and scope of bugs that are fixed and features that are added in the “Red Bits” during Orcas. Unfortunately, this bug falls into the red bits category, and so we are not able to address it in Orcas due to the potential for it to introduce compatibility issues.

We recognize you submitted this bug because of a specific problem you are experiencing with the product. If you submitted this bug because of a blocking problem you’re experiencing and continue to experience, you may want to contact Microsoft Professional Services http://support.microsoft.com. Alternatively you may find additional information by searching or posting to the ASP.NET forums (http://forums.asp.net). Finally, if you submitted this bug because of a blocking problem you’re experiencing and continue to experience, you may want to also open a support call with Microsoft Professional Services (http://support.microsoft.com/?LN=en-us&scid=gp%3Ben-us%3Bofferprophone&x=8&y=14), which is a better support option when you’re experiencing business impact for your problem and are unable to resolve it in a timely manner on forums or other support channels.

Before starting work on the next full release of the .NET Framework, we will review the Connect data to help us identify and address the top customer reported issues. We’ll broadly review all bugs submitted to date at that time.
