How do I retrieve hidden form fields posted to another page?

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.
