Prepopulate Sharepoint Formfield with querystring value

I am trying to pre-populate a SharePoint form field with a querystring value . What's the best way to do this?

I have seen lots of javascript examples, but I'm not much of a coder in that language.  I have MOSS...Thanks.

I would go for javascript or jquery as a solution. As a c# coder learning java might not seem all that needed, but if you are planning to code for SP2010 as well I do suggest you learn to use it.

i'm not a coder either, and i was able to implement a javascript solution.

example (see comments 25498908 and 25498969):

It looks like you start your page with the solution I'm looking for, and are asking a few different questions.

In the screenshot below, you can see the familyid (=1) and the field that I want that value to display (obnoxious red arrow).

Now I think I can bind to a querystring variable, something like this:
<ParameterBinding Name="FamilyID" Location="QueryString(FamilyID)" DefaultValue="@insert_data_here"/>

If I'm right, then how can I insert this query string variable into that text field?

I've attached my entire code, too.

I hope I'm not way off, here (thanks).

Hey, it worked!  Thanks.  My only question is this: how can I make this text box read only or not changeable?

zephyr_hex (Megan)DeveloperCommented:
you can do that in sharepoint designer.  you change the type of field to one that is read only.  i think it's called a label, but i can't recall for sure and i dont have SPD available at the moment.
