Hello experts,

I am having trouble assigning a querystring value to a business object parameter.when I do the following;-

<asp:ObjectDataSource ID="ObjectDataSource1" runat="server" SelectMethod="GetGalleryImagesByID"
                TypeName="FixedAuctions.AuctionsDB">
                <SelectParameters>
                    <asp:QueryStringParameter DefaultValue="-1" Name="GalleryID" QueryStringField="GALLERYID"
                        Type="Int32" />
                </SelectParameters>
            </asp:ObjectDataSource>
I get error;-



Input string was not in a correct format.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.

Stack Trace:

   System.Web.UI.WebControls.ParameterCollection.GetValues(HttpContext context, Control control) +254
   System.Web.UI.WebControls.ObjectDataSourceView
 


I f I change the follwoing line;-

<asp:QueryStringParameter DefaultValue="-1" Name="GalleryID" QueryStringField="GALLERYID"
                        Type="Int32" />


to-
<asp:QueryStringParameter DefaultValue="1" Name="GalleryID"
                        Type="Int32" />

everything works fine.

I am using the code in a popup that is called in a javascript function like so;-

HyperLink HyperLink1 = (HyperLink)DataList1.Items[i].FindControl("HyperLink1");
                HyperLink1.Attributes.Add("onclick", "window.open('popup.aspx?IMAGEID=IMAGEID',null,'height=550, width=650,status= no, resizable= no, scrollbars=no, toolbar=no,location=no,menubar=no ');");

I can't seem to find what am missing

without looking deeper into your code, you have
<asp:QueryStringParameter DefaultValue="-1" Name="GalleryID" QueryStringField="GALLERYID" Type="Int32" />
and your link doesnt have a querystring GALLERYID, instead it has a Querystring IMAGEID

Hi there,

I had to change this;-


HyperLink1.Attributes.Add("onclick", "window.open('popup.aspx?IMAGEID=IMAGEID',null,'height=550, width=650,status= no, resizable= no, scrollbars=no, toolbar=no,location=no,menubar=no ');");
to

 HyperLink1.Attributes.Add("onclick", "window.open('popup.aspx?IMAGEID="+IMAGEID+",null,'height=550, width=650,status= no, resizable= no, scrollbars=no,

IE.
IMAGEID=IMAGEID'

to

IMAGEID="+IMAGEID+",
