If I read it right, you are trying to get a Query String called "requestid".  This is how you would do it if that is the case:

uxSendMessage.DefaultRecipient = Request.QueryString["requestid"].ToString();

omegaloveAuthor Commented:
but is this doing for empty string?

chapmanjwConnect With a Mentor Commented:
You can do:

string recipient = string.Empty;

try
{
recipient = Request.QueryString["requestid"].ToString();
}
catch
{
recipient = string.Empty;
}

if (recipient == string.Empty)
{
uxSendMessage.DefaultRecipient = "whatever you want it to default to";
}
else
{
uxSendMessage.DefaultRecipient = recipient;
}

If you want to use just once you might want to try this:

uxSendMessage.DefaultRecipient = Request.QueryString["requestid"] == null ? String.Empty : Request.QueryString["requestid"].ToString();

but if you are going to use again in several places the same kind of thing but different way...

uxSendMessage.DefaultRecipient = GetString("requestid", string.Empty);

private string GetString(string value, string defaultvalue)
 {
       return Request.QueryString[value] == null ? defaultvalue : Request.QueryString[value].ToString();
    }
