Hello experts,
I have some code like this
    response.write "<td><form method=post action=/adhoc/aspnet/user_maint.aspx name=frm"&cnt&">"
    response.write "<input type=hidden value="&oRS("network_account")&" name=network_account> "
    response.write "<input type=hidden value="&request.form("lname")&" name=lname> "
    response.write "<input type=hidden value="&oRS("employee_id")&" name=employee_id> "
    response.Write "<a href=javascript:document.frm"&cnt&".submit();><b>"&oRS("fullname")&"</b></a></form></td> "

Open in new window


How do I access those hidden values inside my user_maint.aspx page? This is not working.
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text=request.form("employee_id")></asp:TextBox>

Open in new window


Then how do I pass those values back to asp? There is probably a much better way to do this. Thanks.

You need to make sure there is a value (other than blank) for that hidden element.  Elements without values are not sent when the form is submitted.  That's standard HTML procedure.

You can always set your TextBox's Text in code behind's Page_Load event instead.

I was able to do this in Page_Load
            Session["employee_id"] = Request.Form["employee_id"];

Is there a way to use the request.form just in the the aspx page without using the code behind?
Thanks.
