Display the value of a QueryStringParameter in my ListView

Display the value of a QueryStringParameter in my ListView

This sounds as though it should be very simple but after hours of searching I cannot find an answer. All I need to do is display the value of a querystring from a QueryStringParameter in the ItemTemplate of my ListView. For example, I have this QueryStringParameter in my datasource


<asp:QueryStringParameter Name="category_id" DbType = "int32" Direction = "Input" QueryStringField="category_id" DefaultValue="-1" /> 

Now I need to display the value of the "category_id" querystring in my ListView. Any idea how I could do this?

RE: Display the value of a QueryStringParameter in my ListView

All you need to do is access the querystring collection and get the value you want. You can put it in your listview markup:


<%= Request.QueryString("category_id")%>
