Is it possible to send different parameters like "rootfolder" (usually fount in the url as a get-parameter) to two different xslt list view webparts on one single page? How can I achieve this?

I'm not sure I understand. You want to send rootfolder to both LVWP1 and LVWP2 or send e.g. rootfolder to LVWP2 and subfolder to LVWP1? – Daniel Ziga Jan 12 '12 at 12:59
A little bit more complex. I want to send rootfolder=A to LVWP1 and rootfolder=B to LVWP2. Another possible solution could be to send rootfolder=a to LVWP1 and afterwards rootfolder=B to LVWP2. In th second option LVWP1 must remember that it's rootfolder was set to A. – Stefan Hennicken Jan 12 '12 at 13:04

It is but you'd need the Query String Filter web part which comes with the SharePoint Server Enterprise licence.

Or otherwise you might be able to do it in SharePoint Designer.

Thanks a lot. Is it possible to add a kind of "memory" to an xslt webpart and let it remember which parameters have been passed to it last time by the current user? – Stefan Hennicken Jan 12 '12 at 13:00

You have the ability to establish connections between LVWP's and other data-connectivity wepbarts.

By using this functionality you could create a new webpart which could read the parameters sent and then forward them to the two LVWP's.

Here's a guide on how to do so.

Does LVWP cosume it's parameters as a consumer-webpart exactly the same way it's via url? Like "rootfolder" for example? – Stefan Hennicken Jan 12 '12 at 13:27
