Getting URL Parameters


Chip Pearson

I'm using ASP.NET 2.0 to create my web site, and I am brand new to ASP.NET,
so this is probably an easy question. In my web site (developed in VS2005) I
use the MasterPage/ContentPage model, and in one of my content pages (not in
the Master page), I want to allow it to accept a parameter from the URL.
E.g., the page would be called from another page with the URL

How do I access the the "term=Range" parameter? When I attempt to call this
URL in the browser, I get a "page not found" error. I looked through MSDN
and didn't find anything. Perhaps "parameter" is not the proper name for
what I am trying to do.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

For c# the syntax would be


This will return "Range".
