QueryStringParameter Constructor (String, TypeCode, String)

QueryStringParameter Constructor (String, TypeCode, String)


Initializes a new named and strongly typed 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,
	TypeCode type,
	string queryStringField


Type: System.String

The name of the parameter.

Type: System.TypeCode

The type that the parameter represents. The default is Object.

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, the parameter type, and a string that identifies the query-string field that the parameter binds to. The Direction and ConvertEmptyStringToNull properties are initialized with default values.

The following example shows how to create a QueryStringParameter object by using the QueryStringParameter constructor and add it to an AccessDataSource control's FilterParameters 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.
