Passing a query string from one page to another C# .NET

    Hi

    Im trying to find out how to create a query string an assign to content on a page - so for example i have a list of bookings with event title, category and location, and on each list element there is a book now button that will popup and display a form with the values already showing in the input fields. I want to pass those details using hidden input fields but im slighlty confused on how to go about this?

    Most examples i have seen they show the URL with the query string in there - dont know whether this is pre-loaded or is loaded when they do

    Code:
    Code (Text):
    1. [COLOR=#333333]Response.Redirect("www.url.com?contenthere");[/COLOR]
    I know you can use

    Code:
    Code (Text):
    1. [COLOR=#333333]string site = Request.QueryString["value"];[/COLOR]
    Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    So if I am getting your question correct,You need to pass variables from one page to another in a secured way such that it is not visible in the address bar of the browser.

    In this case,I can think of to ways
    1) encrypt the query string
    2) use Session state instead of querystring.

    I would go with option 2 if i were you :)..let me know if this helps...

    Yes i will be using query string only and then passing this to the next page and storing them using input hidden fields so you cant see them.

    Any examples?

    Session state wont be required in this case.

    Hi,
    I got little confused by your question. You said you would open a pop-up with all details on the page itself. Then why would you be redirecting any parameters to another page ? What I think you are trying to achieve is something like when you click on any username on DP. It opens a modal pop-up with all the details.
    If that is what you are looking for, you can achieve that using AJAX and JQuery.

    You should use query string. I think it's the best option. You can pass data from one to another with using query string after that store the data in a hidden field on the second page to retrieve that information.

    Use Session state for passing variables, that will keep your data secured.

    I would advice you to use session for this so you can secure your variables query string will be displayed in the addressbar of the browser

    you could temporary store it inside the application state?

    Code (Text):
    1. dynamic obj = Application["key"] == null ? Application["key"] = new { test = "j" } : Application["key"];

    You have many different ways to pass state data, but those options can be limited based on your state mechanism that you use..

    But yes passing via a QueryString works in all cases (If it's not sensitive data).

    Arurag55 example is what you want to follow.
