Big problem: passing a field value from a .htm page to an asp.net page (and back)
Posted on 2003-03-04
Hello Guys, I'm in deep trouble, I need to finish this by tomorrow and I just crashed into a big wall.
Recently I've been assigned the task of developing an asp.net page that the users of another web aplication (running on a different server that can't execute asp.net pages) will open as a floating window and that will let them choose two options from two dropdownlist boxes which are populated from a SQL Server 2000 database, using the value of a field that's in the parent non-asp web application as the key for the SELECT statement. When the user picks their desired options they must press a button that will assign those two values to two fields back in the parent web application and then close the floating asp.net page window. I must mention that the parent web application is on a Domino/Notes server, that's why I'm developing this page to avoid the burden of accessing the SQL Server database directly from the Notes Web application.
I've already programed the Asp.net page, it access the database with no trouble and let's you pick the values from the dropdownlist boxes. Currently I'm assiging the value of the key field directly (for developing purposes).
The problem now is that I'm having problems passing the key value from the parent web app page to the asp.net page (and of course passing the choosen values back to the R5 page).
Also I must mention that the parent web app and the Asp.net page are on different servers( the first one in a Lotus/Domino server the latter on a IIS Win2k server).
Thanks in advance
