How do I add a value to URL?

This has to be simple, but I can't get it to work.

I have a page that I need to add the startDate and endDate text fields to the URL when the submit button is pressed.


Without a redirect, I need it done via postback.

I want the submit button to postback to the page, and put the values in the URL.

Any ideas?

QueryString is a readonly property collection. If you want to do it without postback then you have to use


in your code to have the form value persistent along with the query string during button click.

That's the problem, this is part of a big form.

If I do any sort of transfer or redirect, it will erase all the values in the form.

Which is why I just wanted it to postback.

I found this wasn't possible, every time you change the querystring, APS.Net sees it as a new page and changes viewstate and changes postback.
