getButterfly Logo getButterfly code wrangling since 2005

While recently working on an ASP.NET site, I had to test some changes on the live site. Normally, I would use a staging server, but with no access to the real server, I had to resort to checking for a URL parameter.

The site uses ASP.NET Razor syntax, so here’s the code I used:

    if (Request.QueryString["c"] != null) {
        var cdebug = Request.QueryString["c"];
        if (int.Parse(cdebug) == 1) {
            // test code here

I can place anything where // test code here is, be it HTML, JS or CSS code.
