Passing parameters from a Web page to a custom control

Does anyone know if its possible to pass parameters or the values of
Request.QuerySt ring from a web page to a custom control class? I'm using
a C# Web Application. For Example I have Web Page1 which has to
parameters passed to it from another Web page

Parameter # 1 dbid and Parameter # 2 reportid.

I know that I can access the values of the parameters from the code
behind .aspx.cs using Request.QuerySt ring so

Request.QuerySt ring["dbid"],Request.QueryS tring["reportid"]

but what I want to so is to generate dynamic HTML based upon the values
of the Request.QuerySt ring parameters. I can create a custom control
(example below)
and hard code in some values for the parameters , call another method
and produce the HTML I want but I don't know how to pass the values of
the parameters
to the class containing the override version of the Render method. The
reason for this is I have information held in a table that depending on
the values of the parameters
will then determine the content of the HTML to display.

Can anyone comment on if this is even the right approach or am I going
in the worng direction all together.

Here is an example.

Here is my HTML code - note the reference to the custom control via the
<Custom> tag.

<%@ Register TagPrefix="Cust om" Namespace="Repo rtUIClassLibrar y"
Assembly = "ReportUIClassL ibrary" %>
<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="Dyn amicTest.aspx.c s"
AutoEventWireup ="false" Inherits="Repor tUI.DynamicTest " %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<title>DynamicT est</title>
<meta name="GENERATOR " Content="Micros oft Visual Studio .NET 7.1">
<meta name="CODE_LANG UAGE" Content="C#">
<meta name="vs_defaul tClientScript" content="JavaSc ript">
<meta name="vs_target Schema"
content="http://schemas.microso ft.com/intellisense/ie5">
</HEAD>
<body MS_POSITIONING= "GridLayout ">
<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
<Custom:WebCust omControl1 Runat="Server" Text="Test" Id="WC1" />
<asp:Label id="Label1" style="Z-INDEX: 101; LEFT: 312px; POSITION:
absolute; TOP: 104px" runat="server"> Label</asp:Label>
</form>
</body>
</HTML>

Here is the class containing the code for the custom control and the
override of the Render method. Note here I am just calling another
method GeneratePrompts that returns a string containing the HTML I want
displayed. This method takes two parameters , I want the parameters to
be the contents of my Request.QuerySt ring variables, but this is
where I get stuck and I am hard coding in some values just to see if the
method call will work.

using System;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.W ebControls;
using System.Componen tModel;

namespace ReportUIClassLi brary
{
/// <summary>
/// Summary description for CustomControls.

private string text;

[Bindable(true),

DefaultValue("" )]
public string Text
{
get
{
return text;
}
set
{
text = value;
}
}

protected override void Render(HtmlText Writer output)
{
Text = ReportUIClassLi brary.BizObject s.GeneratePromp ts("1","3");
output.Write(Te xt);
}
}

}

First of all, you should not be setting Text in Render(). (It should
not change any property)

Render really wants to be something like:

protected override void Render(HtmlText Writer output)
{
string myhtml = ReportUIClassLi brary.BizObject s.GeneratePromp ts(Text,
MoreText);
output.Write(my html);
}
Then in your webpage's codebehind:

WC1.Text = Request.QuerySt ring["dbid"];
WC1.MoreText = Request.QuerySt ring["reportid"];

Actually, you'll probably want to create properties called DbId & ReportId
instead of Text & MoreText

Thanks for the information James,
I tried what you suggested but having Render as

protected override void Render(HtmlText Writer output)
{
string myhtml = ReportUIClassLi brary.BizObject s.GeneratePromp ts(Text,
MoreText);
output.Write(my html);
}

caused a 'System.StackOv erflowException ' exception in the
DefaultDomain. It's definitely this code that is causing the exception.

Something in either GeneratePrompts & or the property getters is
triggering Render, so it's just calling itself recursively until the stack
overflows.
