ASP.Net VB: View HiddenField value

I would like to view the value of a hidden field to make sure it is getting a value.  This is the code I have in the code-behind page:

hdnPaidThruDateA.Value = CDate(result).ToString("MM/yyyy")

This is the code in the .aspx page:

<asp:HiddenField ID="hdnPaidThruDateA" Value="hdnPaidThruDateA" Visible="true" runat="server" />  

I have Visible="true" which I am assuming that if the value is in the .aspx hidden value field, I should be able to see it.  When the page is rendered I don't see the value.  If I'm doing this incorrectly how can I see the value?

Thanks.

John

I believe setting visible="true" on a hidden field is a waste of time as it will always be hidden.

When I've run into this in the past I've used a text field and just set the style="display:none;".

Works the same as a hidden field but it will be rendered in your markup everytime.

Easiest way to see values you're trying to set, I've found, is to just use response.write()  So in the codebehind, after you do:
hdnPaidThruDateA.Value = CDate(result).ToString("MM/yyyy")

To see the value it assigned, just:

Response.Write(hdnPaidThruDateA).Value

After you've seen that it's getting the proper value, just delete the response.write.
