need to convert QueryStringParameter from string to int64

I have a gridview that is bound to a objectdatasource(ods).  It uses this:
        <SelectParameters>
            <asp:QueryStringParameter Name="customerID" QueryStringField="ID"  Type="String" />
        </SelectParameters>

But here is the deal...the SelectMethod needs customerID to be an integer64 instead of a string.
After researching, I found that I need to do the conversion in the Selecting event of the ods.

So I added this line, but this isn't working because customerID remains as string after this line is executed:
Convert.ChangeType(e.InputParameters("customerID"), TypeCode.Int64)

Can someone please tell me what I need to do to change the datatype of the SelectParameter from string to int64?  Thank you!

You should be able to simply set the Type for the querystring parameter and let it do the conversion itself:
<asp:QueryStringParameter Name="customerID" QueryStringField="ID"  Type="Int64" />
