For Each Item in Request.Form

I am looping through the request.form collection to collect the data the user has entered.  This data is then validated.

However, if there is a select (listbox) element, which hasn't been changed from the default "please select" (no value), it does not appear in the collection.  Part of the validation is to make sure all these select elements have been selected.

Is this behaviour by design?  Any idea's how I can get around this.


'Loop through form elements and save data into session
     For Each Item in Request.Form
       ItemValue = Request.Form(Item)
       Session(Item) = ItemValue

This behaviour is by design and the way to get around it is to specify a default value other than an empty string.

Hi HMax,

Funny, I just found that in some testing I was doing.

But, you got here first, so you get the points.
