Well, a button generally just fires an event handler to run code. The only values you could conceivably get from a button would be the Text property or other properties associated with the button.

There's no "Value" property per se. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

Here is a list of all the available properties exposed by the Button class:

As ViceroyFizzle suggests....

.Value property is for a <input type="submit" which is a html control.

If u r placing an <asp:button

then u'll get if(bntId.Text=="true")

The code below has two buttons one asp:Button (Save) and one html "Submit" button.
The submit button creates a gridview from a sql query.
The asp:Button "Save" button saves the sql query.
However the problem is when I click the "save" button it also runs the query as thou I clicked the "Submit" button.
So I want to some how make the code unserstand that I clicked the "Save" button.
I know this code could have been written better from the start but I am new to C# and I am piecing code together.

From what I can see, regardless of which button you press, a PostBack will be submitted to the server. However, the loaddata() method is getting called whether it was a PostBack or not.

In any event, the easiest option would be to check which control actually initiated the PostBack. The snippet below should allow you to get the control the user selected and then you can adjust your logic accordingly.
string ctrlname = page.Request.Params.Get("__EVENTTARGET");
if (ctrlname != null && ctrlname != string.Empty)
{
   // Do stuff depending on which button was pressed
}
