Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a new website, and add the 4 files in the above folder into it.

The aim of this exercise is to create two pages.  When you fill in the first page called frmRate, ASP.NET will redirect you to the second, passing the values typed in via the URL's query string:

ASP.NET 4.0 - Visual Basic exercise - Passing values between pages (image 1)

You can assume that a user will fill in the form correctly

The second page - frmAcknowledgement - will display the choices made:

ASP.NET 4.0 - Visual Basic exercise - Passing values between pages (image 2)

Use REQUEST.QUERYSTRING to pick up on the values passed

Test your system out with the film name Lilo & Stitch.  Well - did you remember to use Server.UrlEncode to encode your query string?

A final thought: how many other ways can you think of to crash your system?
