you should use "if/else" statements..

<?php
if(isset($user) && (isset($pass)) { //whatever u want for this
    echo "<td><a href='www.something.com/file.htm'>Click</a><td>";
} else { 
    echo "<td>Click</td>";
}

Hope this helps..

Hi fobos. Thanks for providing the code. It is nice code, but I need a little more information regarding disabling of hyper link. I want that its color would become gray when user clicks on it and it should not perform any action of being redirected to link page. It should give a feeling to user that this is a proper link, but he is not having access right to use it. This can be done by using javascript, but I need server side validation. Hope you would have got my point. Again thanks for your help.

you should use "if/else" statements..

<?php
if(isset($user) && (isset($pass)) { //whatever u want for this
    echo "<td><a href='www.something.com/file.htm'>Click</a><td>";
} else { 
    echo "<td>Click</td>";
}

Hope this helps..

Add 'class' or 'id' for this anchor.

<?php
      if(isset($user) && (isset($pass)) { //whatever u want for this
      echo "<td><a href='www.something.com/file.htm' class='memberlink'>Click</a><td>";
      } else {
      echo "<td>Click</td>";
      }
?>

And you can change in css:

a.memberlink {
           }

Good luck.

If I understand right you'd like a link that doesn't go anywhere if they're not an admin.
Something like

if($user= "admin"){
print '<a href="page.php" class="enabled-link">Admin Section</a>';
}
else{
print '<a href="" class="disabled-link">Admin Section</a>';
}

with something like this in your css

.enabled-link {
color:blue;
text-decoration:underline;
}

.disabled-link{
color:grey;
text-decoration:underline;
}

Hi, Dear daryII1
I am happy that you got my point regarding disabling of hyperlink. I have not yet checked your code, but before this I was interested to reply you. I hope your code will help a lot. I am using .css style sheet, and I am copying its portion which I think deals with hyperlink color and display. After using your piece of code , Will hyperlink color be gray?, if user places cursor on it and removes, and will the hand sign be there which is displayed when user places cursor on hyperlink. Will this style sheet not disturb disabled hyplerlink appearence?, because it is being used for enabled hyperlinks.
.css code is as under:

a {
color: #FF6600;
font-weight:bold;
text-decoration:none;
}

a:hover {
color: #FFBA00;
}

/* ID Styles */

#navigation a {
font:10px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
color: #26354A;
text-decoration: none;
letter-spacing:.1em;
line-height:16px;
display:block;
padding: 0px 10px;
border-right:1px solid #FF6600;
}

#navigation a:hover {
color:#ffffff;
background: #FF6600;
}

If I understand right you'd like a link that doesn't go anywhere if they're not an admin.
Something like

if($user= "admin"){
print '<a href="page.php" class="enabled-link">Admin Section</a>';
}
else{
print '<a href="" class="disabled-link">Admin Section</a>';
}

with something like this in your css

.enabled-link {
color:blue;
text-decoration:underline;
}

.disabled-link{
color:grey;
text-decoration:underline;
}

Hi, daryll1

Checked your code, it gives desired gray color of disabled link, but when it is clicked, it opens the index.php file, which is not desired, now how this can be avoided.

Hey do you want to post up the part around where you are using it and i'll check it out for you

if($user= "admin"){
print '<a href="page.php" class="enabled-link">Admin Section</a>';
}
else{
print '<a href="" class="disabled-link">Admin Section</a>';
}

Why not just take the href out all together? Like so.
CSS:
.disabled-link {
color: gray;
}

if($user= "admin"){
print '<a href="page.php" class="enabled-link">Admin Section</a>';
}
else{
print '<span class="disabled-link">Admin Section</span>';
}

Or you could just hide the link from anyone not authorized.

if($user= "admin"){
print '<a href="page.php" class="enabled-link">Admin Section</a>';
}

Then the link would not show at all.

No from what I can gather they want the link to show, but not to have a target, so that it is still click able but won't go anywhere, so you need the href in it, not just the colour.

I was just going through one of my previous project and saw some code to disable the LinkButton, HyperLink and ImageButton; after going through it I remembered the issues we had faced with different browsers trying to disable these controls(with proper functionality, styling etc.). Hope posting these functions will help someone.

/// <summary>

/// Disables the link button.

/// </summary>

/// <param name="linkButton">The LinkButton to be disabled.</param>

public static void DisableLinkButton(LinkButton linkButton)

{

    linkButton.Attributes.Remove("href");

    linkButton.Attributes.CssStyle[HtmlTextWriterStyle.Color] = "gray";

    linkButton.Attributes.CssStyle[HtmlTextWriterStyle.Cursor] = "default";

    if (linkButton.Enabled != false)

    {

        linkButton.Enabled = false;

    }



    if (linkButton.OnClientClick != null)

    {

        linkButton.OnClientClick = null;

    }

}
