Hi,

I'm trying to prepolate my text box with a querystring and not sure how to do it.

in the example below I'd like the input box to display 'lorem'

Code:
<asp:TextBox ID="txtName" runat="server" />

querystring is:  xxx.aspx?game=lorem

I've tried this but it didn't work.
<asp:TextBox ID="txtName" runat="server"><%= request.querystring("game") %></asp:TextBox>

thanks and let me know if any questions.

I get this error
Error creating control (/usercontrols/GamesForm.ascx).
Maybe file doesn't exists or the usercontrol has a cache directive, which is not allowed! See the tracestack for more information!

I'm using umbraco cms.

I've solved this using
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        txtGameRequested.text = Request("game")
End Sub
