Default HTML portion of aspx file

Hi
I have a URL:

http://localhost/project/default.asp...&Month=January

And what i am trying to do is to access the querystring value Category in the html portion of the aspx file.

I tried

  <% Dim Category As String = Request.Servervariables("Querystring")%>

but its not working...

Any ideas...


Many Thanks

Two things, why don't you just use a label control in the HTML portion of the aspx file and set the value in the code behind:

label1.Text = Request.QueryString("<value>")


If you absolutely need to do this in the HTML file you need to change your syntax to:
<%=Request.QueryString("<value>") %>

I tried this:

<td >
                         <%Dim category = "My category"%>
                         <a href ='http://bdevweb01:5433/default.aspx?C=<% Category %>'>Next</a></td>



But getting the error message :

Expression is not a method.

This was not a typo: '<%=' you need the = sign in there for this to work.

<%= is the shortcut for Response.Write()
