Hello everyone,

Is it possible to pre populate a field, a drop down menu in this example, on a new record from the query string?

Many thanks

Moved this question to ASPRunner.NET category.

You can use System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Request.QueryString["parameter name here"] as a default value of one of fields.

Thanks very much for your help, and apologies for postsing to the wrong group, I always forget that we upgraded to the .NET Version.

I'm adding the HttpContext string to the edit lookup wizard like this...

However on build the following is entered into the log after a not succeed message.

Thanks again for helping out.

It needs a fully qualified class name, I've updated my reply.
