Hi Guys,
I have an hyperlink in a datagrid that calls the MainFrame page with two parameters like this

http://localhost/InsertVouchers/MainFrameVP.aspx?VVoucherNum=12341234075380&VMod=VP

In the page_Load I'm receiving the parameters with
string VVoucher = Request.QueryString["VVoucherNum"];      
string VOption = Request.QueryString["VMod"];      

The problem is that VOption doesn't have any information it's null but I can see that in the URL the parameter VMod has information. What could be happening???
Help Please !!!!
Thanks
Carol

Is this ASP or ASP.NET?

if this is asp then it needs to look like this. ASP does not support variable type binding (e.g. strings, ints, etc.). All variables are generic in type. Also, the request.queryString method uses ( ) instead of [ ].

dim VVoucher, VOption

VVoucher = Request.QueryString("VVoucherNum")  
VOption = Request.QueryString("VMod")

After the fact I realize your page is probably ASP.NET because of the .aspx extension in the URL you posted. In that case, it would look like this:

Dim VVoucher As String = Request.QueryString("VVoucherNum")  
Dim VOption As String = Request.QueryString("VMod")

It looks like she is coding in C# if it makes a difference.

a. Are you getting a value back from your first parameter?
b. Have you tried reading the 2nd parameter first to see if it makes a difference.
c. Try this and see if it works
    string VOption = Request.QueryString.GetValues("VMod")[0];

not an expert @ C# but try this


string VVoucher = (String) Request.QueryString["VVoucherNum"];    
string VOption = (String) Request.QueryString["VMod"];  

basically teh request.querystring returns an object

also try this
string VVoucher = (String) Request["VVoucherNum"];    
string VOption = (String) Request["VMod"];  

hope this helps

Guys, I'm developing with ASP and c#.

jrram

a. Are you getting a value back from your first parameter? ****yes
b. Have you tried reading the 2nd parameter first to see if it makes a difference.** Yes, I did it and still doesn't show anything in the variable VMod.
c. Try this and see if it works
    string VOption = Request.QueryString.GetValues("VMod")[0];
    ***It shows an error

 ullfindsmit
string VVoucher = (String) Request["VVoucherNum"];    
string VOption = (String) Request["VMod"];  
** I tried both options and neither one works

Any other idea????
