I've modified the Albums table by adding some additional columns for data I want to store that will allow me to display different "types" of albums.
For example, let's say I have a Type column in Albums whose values can be Cat, Dog, or Other.
I plan on changing the menu so instead of just one Photo link to photoalbum_list.aspx, I have several links, each returning a specific “type” of album.
I think I will need to use QueryStringParameters for this, so an example URL would look like ~\photoalbum_list.aspx?type=Dog
In this example, I want the page to just display albums for Dogs.
As an added bonus, I would like to add changes so that if a URL was entered without a parameter (i.e. without type=<somevalue>), the user would be redirected to a different
page or something would display telling them they can’t do that.
Basically, I don’t want someone to be able to return all albums.
I’ve never done this before, so I am wondering what needs to change to support returning albums of a given "type"?
Do I just need to change the PagedAlbumList stored proc?
AlbumList stored proc?
What would I do different, if anything, if I wanted to support multiple parameters?
(ex. Type and Status)?
If anyone has suggestions for the bonus feature of not letting someone return all albums, that would be cool too.
I know what I want, I’m just not sure how to get there yet as I’m just learningJ
Any advice, tips, links, samples, etc.
would be greatly appreciated.
