Hi,

I am working on asp.net 2.0 using c#

I am creating form on the aspx page by transforming xml with xslt and therefore creating html conrols in the form

I have created html text field from xml , xslt as follows

<input type="text" name="txtCompanyName" runat="server" class="formText" />

Now at code behind I am writting a code on page load method (just to test if code is finding html control or not)

HtmlInputText hCompany = (HtmlInputText)Page.FindControl("txtCompanyName");
string txtCompanyName = hCompanyName.Value;

I am getting null pointer exception because hCompany is null

I have also tried

HtmlInputText hCompany = (HtmlInputText)this.FindControl("txtCompanyName");

but it is not working

I am rendering xml with xslt on aspx page by below code:

<asp:Xml runat="server" ID="tblTenderDetail" Document="myxml.xml"  TransformSource="tenderDetail.xsl" >

I also tried

HtmlInputText hCompany = (HtmlInputText)tblTenderDetail.Page.FindControl("txtCompanyName");


Please guide
