My textbox.text dissappears after a redirect.
How can can I preserve the textbox.text value?
For example:
I type in "bananas"
Then I press the button ,  for a redirect to Google "bananas"
When I am done with the Google page I go back to my page,
but "bananas" is gone!
I want "bananas" in the textbox.text!
I want my bananas!

You could set a cookie with the value and have the page_load check for the cookie each time you load the page:  http://www.codetoad.com/asp.net/cookies.asp

I was hoping to save it in a variable (or better yet in the orginal textbox.text)
This doesn't have to work between differant sessions, just when flipping back and forth in this origianl session.

The problem lies in that you are going to a different website entirely that is not under your control.  You have to use a cookie or session variable to persist data.

Hi Chapmanjw,
I get the effect I wanted (saving the value in textbox1.text)when I use this:
  protected void HyperLink1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        HyperLink1.NavigateUrl = "http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&q=" + TextBox1.Text;
    }

Why is this differant than the following? (as far as saving the value in textbox1.text?):

  protected void googButton1_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)
    {
        string gogetit = "http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&q=" + TextBox1.Text;
       Response.Redirect(gogetit);
     }

easiest way. Save it in a session. if the session variable is nothing it shows nothing, if it contains a value it will show the value.
