Getting Hidden Values

How do I get hidden data from another form?  I am using VB.NET and am using LinkPoint Connect for credit card processing. I have 3 hidden inputs that are required when I call LinkPoint Connect.

In their documentation they say "You can add custom fields to LinkPoint Connect. This allows you to pass your own custom data to us whenever an order is place, and we will post it back to your server. You can then collect and analyze the data however you please."

How do I get to the data when it is posted back to my server?

Can someone show me the actual code? Is it done in my codebehind or in the html page? I'm really stuck. If this isn't the right forum, please direct me to where I can find the answer.

Thanks!

You get the value in the code-behind, for example in Page_Load

You need to know the name of the parameter (I assume it will be a custom parameter that you post to them originally, so you should no that)

c#: string val = Request.Form["parameter_name"]
vb.net: Request.Form("parameter_name")
