Hi EE,

I have an href control in my aspx code.  I want to redirect with a querystring to another page.
The querystring needs to be developed from an hidden field on the form.
How do I do this?

Thanks
<a href='<%# "Portfolio.aspx?StylistID="+StylistID.Value %>' />

Open in new window

what about making onclick event instead of href:
<a onclick=showNewLink(); />

function showNewLink()
{
  window.open('Portfolio.aspx?StylistID='+StylistID.Value , '_blank', 'height=200,width=400,status=yes,resizable=yes');
}

I would rather use client side.
I've already tried response.redirect on the server also, but it didn't work.

Thanks


Response.Redirect("Portfolio.aspx?StylistID=" & Me.StylistID.Value & "")

Open in new window

My solution is client side (javascript) and it is opening a new window.
If you need to open the link in the same window, the javascript method should be:
function showNewLink()
{
  window.location = "Portfolio.aspx?StylistID="+StylistID.Value;
}

Note: In your server code, have you checked that the StylistID.Value is assigned in the client code only?

I've checked that there is a value in hidden field.
I'm not sure what you mean by window.location??
I just want to open another page.  In the page load of the page I want to open, I request the query string.
When I walk through the code, Response.Redirect("Portfolio.aspx?StylistID=" & Me.StylistID.Value & "")
I get the error Operator '==' incompatible with operand types 'Int32' and 'Object' before the page load fires on the page I want to open.

Thanks

For comment 1:
The code posted is javascript code: (You have to add that to your web site, see http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread26184.html)

function showNewLink()
{
  window.location.href = "Portfolio.aspx?StylistID="+StylistID.Value;
}

For   window.location.href explanation, check:

For comment 2:
Response.Redirect("Portfolio.aspx?StylistID=" & Me.StylistID.Value)
also put a breakpoint and tell me what Me.StylistID.Value has been set.
