Hey, in my vs 2008 i am able to do:
this.Page.Form.Action = Request.RawUrl;
no error appears, and it's working.
then ive got with my project to another computer
at my office, and suddenly the ide says he can't find it:
'System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlForm' does not contain a definition for 'Action' and no extension method 'Action' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlForm' could be found
they both have asp.net 3.5 version, what can be the problem ?

It turned out that the hosting service was not running SP1 for ASP.NET .

 They moved my web application to a server with SP1 and it all works

Just out of interest, why are you setting the Action of the form, especially to what would appear to be its default value anyway?

No it's not default. let me explain. when you using url rewriting
like www.mydomain.com/movies/terminator3.html instead of
www.mydomain.com/movies.aspx?movieid=231
the postback returns to the
original address, and by setting the postback to the raw url i can promise that the postback
will be back to the new rewrited url
