Welcome message error

Welcome message error


I have a Web page here, but instead of the welcome message greeting the user's email, I have:

strEmailValue is the user's email address (the variable)
strEmail is the email column in my database
strEmailTextBox is the ID of the email form field

What is the reason, please, why I get the variable 'strEmailValue' and not the user's actual email address in the image I have posted?

There are two relevant files, myLogon.aspx.vb and userpage.aspx.vb to which the user is directed after logging on.
In myLogon.aspx.vb, I have:

CODE -->

Protected Sub LogonBtn_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles LogonBtn.Click

        'Authenticate the user

        Dim Authenticated As Boolean = Authenticate(strEmailTextBox.Text, passwordTextBox.Text)

        'If results found, redirect the user

        If Authenticated Then

            Dim target = String.Format("~/userpage.aspx?strEmailValue={0}", strEmailTextBox.Text)

            Response.Redirect(target, False)

         End If

    End Sub 

In userpage.aspx.vb, I have:

CODE -->

Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        If Not IsPostBack Then

            Dim strEmailValue As String

            Label2.Text = "Hello " & strEmailValue & ", welcome!"

        End If

        If Not String.IsNullOrEmpty(Request.QueryString("strEmailValue")) Then

            Message = Request.QueryString("strEmailValue")

           End If

         End Sub 

What mistake I making, please?

Thank you.

RE: Welcome message error
