Default post result on a different page


i'm developing a web based application in VB .NET. I have a form where a user can enter some criteria, click on a find button then the results will be posted on a different page on a datagrid. on form1( where the find button is located) i placed the below code in it:

Response.Redirect("area_find.aspx?code=txtAreaCode &description=txtAreaDescription")

txtAreaCode & txtAreaDescription are the criteria on the form
Code & desription are how they are defined in the database

on form2(where the datagrid will display the information) i placed the below code:

 If Not IsPostBack Then

                Dim v1, v2 As String
                v1 = Request.Form("txtAreaCode.text")
                v1 = Request.QueryString("code")
                v2 = Request.Form("txtAreaDescription.text")
                v2 = Request.QueryString("description")

then the sql code comes...

which should i use? Request.Form or Request.QueryString and how?

thanks in advance

You can't access the previous forms elements from another form.

I think what you are looking to do is this:

Response.Redirect(String.Format("area_find.aspx?co de={0}&description={1}", txtAreaCode.Text, txtAreaDescription.Text))

This will put the actual text from the search boxes into the querystring of the page you are redirecting to. Then you can use the following to retrieve the values:

v1 = Request.QueryString("code")
v2 = Request.QueryString("description")

You must NOT put this inside the "If Not IsPostback". You are redirecting to this page, not posting back onto it.
