Hi Casey, You don't have to abandon HTML tags in favor of server controls. When you need links simply use them. If the HREF's value is dynamic you can set the anchor to run at server (runat="server") and than to set the HREF attribute when the page loads or something. HTH, David. -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Casey Crookston Sent: Monday, October 18, 2004 11:19 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] asp.net: using a form button as a link I've got a pdf file users may want to download.
