I’ve run across this situation multiple times, where I have for example, an ID that I get in the code behind, and I want to append it to some href in the aspx, and each time I forget how to do it, so as a reminder for myself, here is how to do it and problems I ran into:

Assuming I have a property in the code behind that returns a GUID

protected Guid CustomerId {
 get { return new Guid(); }
}

And assuming I have a link in my aspx page that I want to append this property to, here is how to do it

<a href="upgrade.aspx?id=<%= CustomerId .ToString() %>">Upgrade</a>

Note that this will not work if you specify a runat=server to the href for any reason, for example. to show the link or hide it according to specific logic.

If you need to show and hide the link, you can enclose it in a place holder and access that placeholder from the code behind

<asp:PlaceHolder ID="UpdgradeLinkPlaceholder" runat="server">
<a href="upgrade.aspx?id=<%= CustomerId .ToString() %>">Upgrade</a>
</asp:PlaceHolder>
