I have a hyperlink control.I want to set id attribute with DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ID").

How can I do this?

How to access this id from code behind?

Use server side (ASP.NET) control and not <a> tag...

I am using server side control only

If this is hyperlink control, it is server side control and you can assign the item in page_load. If it is part of the repeater item, use OnItemDataBound event.

From code-behind (Again assuming server control (runat="server") ) you just use the ID directly. Otherwise you have to FindControl("id")

yes..It is server side control... I am setting id as like this..
<asp:HyperLink id="<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ID") %>" runat="server" >

tried the same..But it is giving the error as below

The ID property of a control can only be set using the ID attribute in the tag and a simple value. Example: <
asp:Button runat="server" id="Button1" />
Assuming this is ID of the hyperlink within repeater control (since otherwise you could set fixed ID) use ItemDataBound event to set the ID instead of trying to bind it via EVAL.

Same goes for other types of list, just the event may be different.
