Controls will not release state.

I am creating an update form to update user profiles, however, when I click the submit button, the controls on the page are not holding the new values, they revert to the values they were assigned when the page loaded.  I am not sure why this is happening.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.

I thought I would leave an example,

txtEmailAddress is a Text Box Control assigned the users email address on page load.  When the user changes the email address and clicks submit, my code behind the submit button

string emailAddress = txtEmailAddress.Text, pulls the email address that was originally loaded with the page and not the corrected or new email address the user entered.  

I hope this makes it more clear.  Again, thank you for any help or advice.

hummm on  page load?
did you check if it s a post back (using Page.IsPostBack) before seting the fields??
if not, the textbox are reset in the page load event (that occurs on submit)

 Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        If Not (Page.IsPostBack) Then
              'your stuff
        End If
    End Sub
