Gets the collection of HTTP query string variables.

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

public:
property NameValueCollection^ QueryString {
	NameValueCollection^ get();
}

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.Specialized::NameValueCollection^

The query string variables sent by the client. Keys and values are URL-decoded.

The following code example shows two ways to get the value of a query string variable named “fullname”. In each case, if the URL is http://www.contoso.com/default.aspx?fullname=Fadi%20Fakhouri, then the value returned is "Fadi Fakhouri" because the %20 is URL-decoded into a space character. If the URL doesn’t have a fullname query string ID, the returned value would be null.

The first line of code looks for the key “fullname” only in the query string; the second line looks for the key “fullname” in all of the HTTP request collections. For more information about the second line, see Item.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
