We use URL rewriting, which means that based on the URL we pass some query strings to the other pages, which are not visible in the URL. Obviously, if query strings are not an issue, you can pass query strings directly without implementing URL rewritting.
However, ContentView control has been primarily developed as a base control to be extended and modified by other more concrete implementations. Perhaps if you tell me your scenario I could help you achieve it with the ContentView control which will save you a lot of time and headaches (BlogPosts, Events View, News View, for example, are all based on ContentView control).
I hope you'll find this information helpful. Let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
