Querystring and REST services RRS feed

  • Question

  •   Hi,

    I have a custom list and visual webpart.

    I am trying to use the REST services to fetch data from the custom list and showing it in various fields of visual webpart.

    The  call to the webpart has a querystring variable. I am trying to get the data from the custom list based on this querystring.

    Example: servername/sitename/_vti_bin/ListData.svc/CustomList is my current URL.

    The call to visual webpart is like this: servername/sitename/sitepages/testpage?ItemID=01

    If ItemID =01, then get the item which matches ItemID in the custom list.

    How to change the REST url based on the querystring?

  • Below is  some java script to get the value of a query string variable. Once you have done this you can do a string replace of the text between the parentheses.

    function getQueryStringParameter(p) {
        var params =
        var strParams = "";
        for (var i = 0; i < params.length; i = i + 1) {
            var singleParam = params[i].split("=");
            if (singleParam[0] == p)
                return singleParam[1];
