I am using below line of code in my DWT.

    <a tridion:href="@@Component.ID@@">

When I visit website it shows me string <%=Html.ServerDecode("@@Component.Fields.Name@@")%> as it is because it's become Linktext property and is treated as a string rather than .net server side code. Can someone suggest me the solution?

  • Is it resolved?

Try using the following code snippet in your DWT

    <a tridion:href="@@Component.ID@@">@@HTMLDecode(Component.Fields.Name)@@</a>;

There seems another issue with your dwt, @@Component.Fields.Name@@ should have been resolved to component name after publishing.

When page is publish this anchor tag will be converted to

<tag attr2="" atr1="" >

and all special characters like "<" are encoded, so server code will never execute, just print on the page

You can use C# fragment/tbb

  • in c# code do the encoding, push in package.
  • get the value from package and include wherever required.
