How to read input textboxes in vb.net

I created an aspx website page with a form and several textboxes inside the form. I used the asp textboxes
<asp:TextBox ID="txtBox1"
        runat="server" Height="20px" Width="150px"></asp:TextBox>
input textboxes

<input name="txtBox1" type="text" id="txtBoxFName" style="height:20px;width:150px;" />

Now, I am not able to refer to the textboxes in the aspx.vb file. The aspx.vb does not recognize the input text boxes. What do I have to change in the aspx.vb ?

to refer to the input textboxes you have to make them runat="server" then in the code behind you would be able to reference txtBoxFName. Additionally if you couldn't make it runat server you can get the value posted by the textbox with Request.Form("txtBox1")

Hello Angel02

Unless there is a specific reason, it is best to stick with using <asp:TextBox ...> as the resulting Html is the same.

If you do ever need to refer to a Html control, use the following code:

Thanks,

Richard Hughes
<input id="myInputControl" name="myInputControl" runat="server" ...>

<div id="myDiv" name="myInputControl" runat="server">

You can do this with any Html control, <tr>, <table>, <p> tags etc...
