How can I pass the below as a HIDDEN value so users cannot change URL string ?
      @Html.ActionLink("Create New", "Create", new { default_value = "5555" })

  ** Current = http://localhost:49450/POdetail/Create?default_value=5555
  ** Desired = http://localhost:49450/POdetail/Create?somethingUsersCannotEasilyChange
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CONTROLLER below

        public ActionResult Create(string default_value)
        {
            ViewBag.PO_ID = new SelectList(db.POheaders, "ID", "Supplier");

            POdetail myEntity = new POdetail();
            myEntity.PartDescription = default_value;
            return View(myEntity);
        }

You're talking about something on the client's machine. How do expect to change something you have no control over?

If you want to hide data from the user, then use a POST method for your form. Be aware:  This is not a security measure. Anyone with basic HTTP knowledge can circumvent this method. I think you may want to reconsider your design.
