Is it possible to pass a value from a Form Web Part to a Data View Web Part? The value from the Form Web Part needs to be passed to a column field in the Data View Web Part for a calculation.

The passed value is not doing any filtering or sorting. I'm trying to do this via SharePoint Designer.

Any ideas?

What I usually do is forego the Form Web Part altogether and collect the value in a Data View Web Part (DVWP) as well. Then I pass the value on the Query String in a postback to the same page. The initial DVWP can then grab that value from the query String and do its thing.

Marc what i actually did was insert normal input type=text and then used a js to post it to the url via QueryString and now collect the data in DATA view web part.But i wanted to use onkeyup with the textbox to redirect to a different URL but its not working.Any ideas – Patrick Aug 15 '10 at 13:46
Forgot to paste my code below:- <input type="text" class="foobar" value="click a button"/> <p></p> <script> $("input").keyup(function () { var value = $(this).val(); $("p").text(value); }).change(); window.location = "localhost:8080/jquery/jq.aspx?c"; + $(this).val(); </script> – Patrick Aug 15 '10 at 14:12
