Examples

The examples in this section show how to use RouteParameter objects in markup to pass URL parameter values to a query that is specified for a data source control.

The following example shows code in the Global.asax page that defines a route that is named ProductRoute. The route defines a URL parameter that is named productname. The route also defines an optional catchall parameter that is named culture, which can be used to specify the language in which the product description is displayed. The Product.aspx page handles requests for this route.

The following example shows the Product.aspx page. The page contains a SqlDataSource control that has a query that requires two parameters, one for the name of the product and one for the language of the product description. RouteParameter objects are used to supply the values for the query parameters. The value of the route URL parameter productname is passed to the query parameter @productname. The value of the route URL parameter culture is passed to the query parameter @culture. If a route URL does not include the URL parameter culture, a default value of "en" is used.

The following example shows a page that is named ProductLinks.aspx, which contains hyperlinks that link to the Product.aspx page by using route URLs. These hyperlinks use RouteUrl expressions to create route URLs. The first link does not include a culture route parameter. Therefore, the default value of "en" that is defined in the RouteParameter object for @culture query parameter will be used in the query. The second link provides a culture value of "fr", which causes the description to be displayed in French. For more information about how to use RouteUrl expressions, see How to: Construct URLs from Routes.

When you click the first hyperlink, you see the Product.aspx page with the following values in the GridView control:

ProductID Name Description
994 LL Bottom Bracket Chromoly steel.

When you click the second hyperlink, you see the following values in the GridView control:

ProductID Name Description
994 LL Bottom Bracket Acier chromé.

To run this example, add the two .aspx pages and the code in the Global.asax file to an ASP.NET Web site or Web application that defines a connection string named AdventureWorksLTConnectionString for the AdventureWorksLT database. For information about how to set up a connection to the AdventureWorksLT database, see How to: Set Up an AdventureWorksLT Sample Database for ASP.NET Development.

Remarks

If you implement ASP.NET routing in a Web site, you can use the RouteParameter object to bind the value of a segment of the requested URL to a database query or command. You can declare RouteParameter objects in markup for data source controls or the QueryExtender control.
