Hi all,

I have a user control named ViewSubmission and I am not able to use a querystring inside the control.

I am trying to pass an integer value from the querystring to the control. The hyperlink is setup like this:
"testpage.com/test.aspx?Submission=85"

If I setup the code in my aspx page:
<Control:ViewSubmission runat="server" Submission='85' />,
 it works perfectly.

However if I try to pass the value from the querystring like this:
<Control:ViewSubmission runat="server" Submission='<%# Convert.ToInt32(Request.QueryString["Submission"]) %>' />,

the querystring is not passed and is treated as though there is nothing there.


Thanks in advance!
My codebehind for submission is shown below
 
private Int32 _SubmissionID;	
public Int32 Submission
	{
		get
		{
			return _SubmissionID;
		}
		set
		{
			_SubmissionID = value;
		}
	}

Won't

(ID of control).Submission = CInt(Request.QueryString("Submission"))

work?

Try putting that in your code behind of your ASPX page.

That works - we were trying to avoid using code behind for this.
