QueryStringParameter Constructor (String, String)


Initializes a new named instance of the QueryStringParameter class, using the specified string to identify which query-string field to bind to.

Namespace:   System.Web.UI.WebControls
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public QueryStringParameter(
	string name,
	string queryStringField


Type: System.String

The name of the parameter.

Type: System.String

The name of the query-string field that the parameter object is bound to. The default is an empty string ("").

A QueryStringParameter object that is created by using the QueryStringParameter constructor is initialized with the specified parameter name that identifies the query-string field that the parameter binds to. The Type and Direction properties are initialized with default values.

The following example shows how to create two QueryStringParameter objects by using the QueryStringParameter constructor and add them to an AccessDataSource control's SelectParameters collection. A GridView control displays data if the employee and country query-string fields are passed with the request and if they have valid values.
