i have a string =
"asDfsl00_PlaceHolder1_default_ctl01_ctl43_radiobutton1&info_id=5634&Age=17"

i want the my value to be stored in different variables

string info_id = 5634 (node: can be one number or 5 digits or more)
string age = 17 (note: can be one number of more numbers, i can not control on that)

how do i extract from above string?

I'm assuming this is the value or some other property of a place holder so why not try:

((ControlType)PlaceHolder1.FindControl("ControlName")).Property (usually .Text or .SelectedValue)

str="asDfsl00_PlaceHolder1_default_ctl01_ctl43_radiobutton1&info_id=5634&Age=17"

Dim arrValues() as string
Dim id, age as string

arrValues=str.Split("=")
id=arrValues(arrValues.Length-2)
age=arrValues(arrValues.Length-1)

actually you'll need


Dim arrValues() As String
        Dim str, infor_id, age As String

        str = "asDfsl00_PlaceHolder1_default_ctl01_ctl43_radiobutton1&info_id=5634&Age=17"

       
        arrValues = Str.Split("=")
        info_id= Replace(arrValues(arrValues.Length - 2), "&Age", "")
        age = arrValues(arrValues.Length - 1)

using C#:

string str = "asDfsl00_PlaceHolder1_default_ctl01_ctl43_radiobutton1&info_id=5634&Age=17";
string[] arrValues = Str.Split("=");
string info_id = Replace(arrValues(arrValues.Length - 2), "&Age", "");
string age = arrValues(arrValues.Length - 1);

If the case is that it isn't a control inside a control you can do:

string someString = "asDfsl00_PlaceHolder1_default_ctl01_ctl43_radiobutton1&info_id=5634&Age=17";

someString = someString.Substring(someString.IndexOf("info_id=") + 8);

string info_id = someString.Substring(0, someString.IndexOf("&"));
string Age = someString.Substring(someString.IndexOf("&") + 1);
0

sorry:

string Age = someString.Substring(someString.IndexOf("&") + 1);

should be:

string Age = someString.Substring(someString.IndexOf("Age=") + 4);



but once again if you are accessing controls in this placeholder, it is best to type case a findcontrol on the control ID you want to access ie:

((TextBox)PlaceHolder1.FindControl("Age")).Text

have you tried this yet:

string someString = "asDfsl00_PlaceHolder1_default_ctl01_ctl43_radiobutton1&info_id=5634&Age=17";

someString = someString.Substring(someString.IndexOf("info_id=") + 8);

string info_id = someString.Substring(0, someString.IndexOf("&"));
string Age = someString.Substring(someString.IndexOf("Age=") + 4);

It is not a real dynamic way of doing things, and there is really no good way, unless you add hidden fields to the panel and access those with a foreach loop.
