ASP.NET PreviousPage question
Posted on 2014-01-13
I have a first page with a ListView on it that has a "select" entry in the first column that uses a LinkButton which when clicked triggers the SelectedIndexChanging event. A code behind routine stores the Database ID field of the row being selected in a public Property of the first page called "SelID". That's working fine.
After storing the SelID I then go to the second page (using a response.redirect). In the Page_Load of the second page I then want to pick up the SelID from the previous page and use that to populate my screen from the database. For some unknown reason when I test the PreviousPage it's always set at Nothing?
I have added the following line to the top of the second page's source:
<%@ PreviousPageType VirtualPath="~/firstPage.aspx" %>
Is it down to the fact that I have used a response.redirect or am I missing something else?
Any Help appreciated,
