Hi Everyone,

Hopefullly someone can help. I've been trying to do this all day !

I have an online invoice system. Customer clicks on their invoice, and if it hasn't been paid yet it goes to a payment page.

It gives quick summary of the invoice and the amount and then customer clicks a pay now button and it goes through to paypal for the customer to pay online.

However, i cant get the amounts to pass through.

*************************************************************************************************

pay.aspx?number=xxxxxx   (Invoice Number)
_____________________________________


 <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick" />
    <input type="hidden" name="business" value="pay@mysite.com" />
    <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="GBP" />
    <input type="hidden" name="return" value="returnhere.aspx" />
    <input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="1" />
    <input type="hidden" name="amount">
   <input type="hidden" name="item_name">

    Invoice Number:
    <asp:Label ID="LblInvoiceNumber" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label>
        <br />
    Total Amount:  
    <br /><br />
        <asp:Button ID="PayNow" runat="server" Text="PAY NOW!" CausesValidation="False"
            PostBackUrl="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" />

*************************************************************************************************

I want to fill 2 of the fields using a database connection.

The amount field and the item_name field.

Item_Name will need to be the invoice number, the amount will need to be the invoice amount.


Database fields.

Item_Name comes from InvoiceNumber
amount comes from InvoiceAmount

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks!

If you change the definition of those two field to:
    <input type="hidden" name="amount" ID="amount" runat="server" />
   <input type="hidden" name="item_name" ID="item_name" runat="server" />

Open in new window

They will then get wrapped as Html server controls and you will be able to access the from code-behind using:
    amount.Value = "some value";
    item_name.Value = "some other value";

Open in new window
