    how to access URL querystring inside a macro

    If i have a macro like this... <umbraco:Macro customerID="" Alias="bev0Link" runat="server"></umbraco:Macro>

    i can get the value for customerID by pull it from the URL querystring like this: <%=request.querystring("cid")%>

    but somehow the macro does not like it, i try customerID='<%=request.querystring("cid")%>' and customerID="<%=request.querystring('cid')%>" with no success. what am i missing ?

    please help

    Hi bev0 (!)

    You can use the bracket syntax to send a value from QueryString into your macro - like this:

    <umbraco:Macro customerID="[@cid]" Alias="bev0Link" runat="server"></umbraco:Macro>

    This page has more info on this 'trick' : advanced-macro-parameter-syntax

    If you're in xslt, you could use:

    <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:RequestQueryString('MyQueryStringParameter')" />


    <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:RequestForm('MyFormParameter')" />
