There are occasions when I need to pass the datatextfield value along to the next page in a querey string in my ASP C# webpage. I can't quite figure out how to do this. I can get the datavaluefield value, but the datatextfield always just passses along the name of the column the datatextfield is drawing from in my datasource.
For example, if my datasource has two coluimns:
ItemNumber | ItemName
1 | Candy
2 | Hamburger
Sometimes I would want to pass the ItemNumber, and some time I want to pass the ItemName, depending on some other factors determined in the page. I need it to work off the same single datasource and dropdownlist
Is this even possible?
