Page Request (URL Query String) Filters

Use page request parameters to derive the filter value from the current Web Part Page HTTP request context:

  • URL parameters (HTTP GET)
  • Posted form values (HTTP POST)
  • Cookies or Server Variables
  • URL path fragments

The Page Request / URL Filter is capable of parsing various request parameter formats. Observe how the Matching URL format example area changes immediately in response to your changes to see exactly what kind of input the filter expects with the current setup. (In principle this applies even when using a request mode other than URL query string.)

Sub-Parameter Bundling

If the specified request parameter bundles multiple name-value pairs in a single parameter value, an individual sub-parameter value can be derived by entering the sub-parameter name, if the parameter value conforms to the syntax that is also used by MOSS Advanced Search forms / results pages ( name:"value" name:"value" name:"value"  filters are separated by spaces, names and values are separated by colons and values are always in quotation marks, regardless of the column type).
