I've been researching and can't find what I'm looking for. I have a page with a drop down list. I want to select the OrderID from the dropdown list then populate text boxes on a different page based on the OrderID field from the Order table when clicking the submit button. I know I need a click event but don't know what else. Any ideas?

There are many ways to transfer data between pages (Query String, Session State, HTTP Post Information, etc. etc.).

Microsoft has a TID that discusses this process and some of the options available - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/6c3yckfw(v=vs.140).aspx

Thanks for the link.  To the source page I added this code:
          protected void btnSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
          {

              Response.Redirect("wscOrderVerify.aspx?orderID=" + ddlOrderID.Text);

          }

Open in new window


I added the following code to the target page:

public partial class wscOrderVerify : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (Request.QueryString["OrderID"] != null)
                orderID.Text = Request.QueryString["OrderID"];
        }
    }

Open in new window


Right now I just want to pass the OrderID selected from the drop down (ddlorderID) and fill the orderID text box on the target page. With the code above nothing happens when I click the submit button.

That's because it is case sensitive.  Either use OrderID or orderID for all references.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Ahh yes I'm punching myself for missing that. I made the change all references say orderID. The target page still doesn't load when clicking submit. I don't receive any error messages either.

Don't know how but I was missing onclick="btnSubmit_Click". I apologize for the noob questions. I've spent the last 24 hours reading up on ASP.Net and C#. I haven't looked at this stuff in 2 years. Thanks a ton for your help.
