Hi All,
My master page has a dropdown box with a submit button.
When user clicks the button I need to send selecteditem's value  to the contents page's page_load event.

Can someone please give me the *** code ***, preferably in C#.

Much appreciated.

Thanks

To send the parameters:
Response.Redirect("StaffProfile.aspx?StaffID=" + parameter.ToString());

StaffProfile is the page you want to redirected to.
Parameter is the one you want to pass


To get the Parameters:

 parameter= int.Parse(Request.Params.Get("StaffID").ToString());

you don't need to use Int, the data type can be different

Hi Scorpiia,
I can not use querystring or cookies or sessions.

Thanks for your time.

Any other approach? like using properties? or whatever?

Yes, properties (variables, controls, events) made public can be read between a master/content page.
This is a nice, short article on it:
