Pass And Get Query String Value Using JQuery In Kendo UI

In this article you will learn how to pass and get query string value using JQuery in kendo UI.

To explain how to pass and get query string value using JQuery in Kendo UI with ASP.NET WEB API, I am going to use the following REST service.

api/Musics/Composer

The Response in POSTMAN as in the following figure 1,

   
                                                                     Figure 1 

/api/Musics/{ComposerID}/details

The Response in POSTMAN as in the following figure 2,

 
                                                                  Figure 2 

Pass the Query String Value

Create an HTML Page, in my case I named it Composer.html

  85.   
  86.     })  
  87.     </script>  
  88.   
  89. </body>  
  90. </html>  
From the above code you can observe the following things,

   1. We have kendo grid which is bounded with api/Musics/Composer service response.

   2. The template is placed in Composer field of grid with a click event.

   3. In the click event function we are fetching ComposerID value from grid and passing it as query string.

Get the Query string value

Create an HTML Page, in my case I named it ComposerDetails.html

  84.          
  85.   
  86.     </script>  
  87. </body>  
  88. </html>  
From the above code you can observe the following things,

         1. We are fetching the ComposerId Value from query string while page loads

         2. Reading the Url -"/api/Musics/"+ urlParams["ComposerID"]+ "/details" to bound the Kendo grid with Composer details based on ComposerID
