posting forms to another page?

is there a quick method of being able to retrieve form values if i post it to another page?

if I use on my submit button of Page1.aspx:
Server.Transfer("Page2.aspx", true);

I get a ViewState not found error on Page2.aspx.  

I understand this error, but cannot figure out a workaround,

I've tried making  all of the controls on Page1 public, then on Page2 doing this:

Page1 Pg1 = new Page1();
Response.Write(Pg1.Text1.Text.ToString());

Intellisense finds the controls, however, when I run this code, it tells me object reference not set to an instance of an object?

any help?

Thanks,

Sean,

Try this link:

It should be of some help.  In addition, you will also need the following reference in the HTML of your destination page:

<%@ Reference Page="originatingpage.aspx" %>

don't try to treat the webforms as you would a winform - Any informtaion that you wish to pass between forms could be passed via the Session object - not very OO I'll admit
