Try this:

     <asp:Button ID="HiddenButton" Text="" Style="display: none;background: transparent; border: none !important; font-size:0;"  OnClick="btnHidden_Click" runat="server"  />

The "display:none;" part should work fine. Maybe you have another style, or some script, that is overriding it.

Hi JElster,
Had a similar issue recently with a textbox, that I wanted to populate with a minimum date value, for a compare validator, couldn't set visible="false" or Ajax couldn't find the ControlToCompare hmmm, ended up bludgeoning it into submission like this:
<asp:TextBox ID="MinPickupDateTextBox" runat="server" Text='<%#Eval("minPickupDate")%>'  width="0px" Height="0px" BorderStyle="None" BackColor="Transparent" BorderColor="Transparent"/>

Open in new window

Respectfully yours,
Alan

Hi JElster,

Try isolating the issue, create a new page, one that doesn't inherit a masterpage or any site themes or styles, paste the samples provided and see if the issue persists. If successful, try loading your previous page in another browser, one that hasn't cached your existing pages, it may be a cache issue. If still no joy, I'd suspect some CSS in the site.css that is appyling style to input { } elements, possibly box-shadow, or outline or some such thing.

Respecfully yours,
Alan
