Caller information in EP2009

If we want to get the caller page information in Enterprise portal 2009 which is similar to what we did in AX native client programming –


We can implement the following code in the user control:

using Microsoft.Dynamics.Framework.Portal;

private string GetElementCaller()


    string sPath = AxWebSession.GetPreviousURL(this.Page).ToString();

    string [] words = sPath.Split(‘/’, ‘?’);

    string caller = “”;

    foreach (string word in words)


        if (word.Contains("aspx"))


            caller = word;




    return caller;


Add a Label control on the ascx file with ID ‘Label1’ and put the following code in the Page_Load method

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)



   if (!this.Page.IsPostBack)


      this.Label1.Text = GetElementCaller();



You will get the result like ‘EPProjTableInfo.aspx’.
