I have the following lines of code:

SPList thisList = oWeb.Lists[new Guid(Request.Url.QueryString).Get("List")];
SPListItem thisItem = thisList.GetItemById(int.Parse(Request.QueryString["ID"]));

But the Request.Url.QueryString does not resolve correctly. I have included the following using statements:

using System;
using Microsoft.SharePoint;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.WebControls;
using System.Web;
using System.Reflection;
using Microsoft.SharePoint.Utilities;

When I right click I usually get a "Resolve" menu option if I have forgotten to put in a usings statement at the top but that does not appear.

Request QueryString Not Resolving

How can I use Request to get the parameters passed into a SharePoint application page?

  • Looks like your application page is not deriving from LayoutsPageBase? – Nadeem Yousuf-AIS Feb 13 '15 at 11:22
  • @NadeemYousuf my application page is deriving from LayoutsPageBase but I also tried deriving from System.Web.UI.Page with no progress. – motionpotion Feb 13 '15 at 11:36

The answer is:


Also make sure your page inherits from either LayoutPageBase or UnsecuredLayoutPageBase which are the base classes for application pages.
