Dynamic URL

Posted on 2007-12-04
Last Modified: 2013-12-16
Ok, here is what should be a simple one!  I have a URL which I use in a redirect.  I want to be able to code the server value, e.g., as a value in the URL.

I want to do something like the example below where psServerName represents the web address.  I don't have the syntax correct, or else I need to build the entire URL before using it in the re-direct.

Jaime, I see you got another one of my questions!!!  So you can use double quotes inside double quotes? Maybe I just got ahead of myself.  I did try this and saw that when I used the double quotes inside double quotes that the url is in, the rest of the URL was not underlined....e.g., like when you enter an email address or hyperlink in word......make sense?

I am a little confused as to what you are asking but I will take a crack at it.

If you want +psServerName = in your redirect then yes you would need the DNS record for to be created and functional before your redirect containing +psServerName would become functional.

That is cool, using identifers or aliases....Let me give that a whirl.  I think this is very clean!

I think this is not the case here, but in this case, you have to use \"  inside, instead of a single "

Jaime, can you look at my post regarding passing a variable from my code behind to my re-directed .cs user control?
