To create the hidden textboxes I've tried creating regular text boxes and making them hidden and by using RegisterHiddenField.

Then on the page I want to get the variables from, I've tried:

Request.Form["txtHiddenField"]
Request.Params["txtHiddenField"]
Request.Params.Get("txtHiddenField")

No combination returns the values.

Thanks

This is how I'm doing it, I have a hidden HTML textbox:

<input id="hdnListText" type="hidden" name="hdnListText">

In my code I simply request as follows:

If Request("hdnListText") <> "" Then

I've had no problems with it.

There is a specific control for hidden fields:

    <asp:HiddenField ID="HiddenField1" runat="server" Value="wibble" />

You can then retrieve the value using the methods in your original post.

Neither of those worked.

The first one returns blank.  I'm using C# so maybe it is syntax thing.

The second shows on the GUI "Error Creating Control" and when I hover over it the following error shows:

Parser Error: Could not load type System.Web.UI.WebControls.HiddenField from assembly System.Web, Version=1.0.5.000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKey Token=b03f5f7f11d50a3a.

I figured it out.

I was issuing the RegisterHiddenField method just prior to the Server.Transfer call so the controls are never actually posted.  I put them into the Page_Load() event and the posted through fine.
