input bootstrap field

Hi there,

When I use the following structure :

<input name="QuestDBID" type="text" id="QuestDBID" value="<%=(rsQuestAnswer.Fields.Item("QuestDBID").Value)%>" size="5" />

I AM able to pass the QuestDBID value to the next (pure asp) page, but I cannot when I try this structure:

<input type="QuestDBID" class="form-control" id="QuestDBID" placeholder="<%=(rsQuestAnswer.Fields.Item("QuestDBID").Value)%>">

The reason I would like the last one is only "esthetic" (better looking), but even without taking that into account, I would like to learn how to change the second structure so that it works as the first one.

Thanks,
fskilnik.

P.S.1: I would not like to take out the placeholder property, and I know "value" and "placeholder" are different, but I´ve tried changing one for the other and it did not work as I expected...

P.S.2: the value was passed through this:   questDBIDChosen = CStr(Request.Form("questDBID"))

In order to POST data using field you need to add a NAME attribute.

<input name="QuestDBID" type="QuestDBID" class="form-control" id="QuestDBID" placeholder="<%=(rsQuestAnswer.Fields.Item("QuestDBID").Value)%>"

Hi, Big Monty!  Long time since I had the pleasure to learn from you again...

Excellent, it worked as expected!

I was so worried about the value/placeholder stuff (sorry, attributes) that I could not see that "name" was in one but not in the other...    :)

Thanks a lot!

Regards,
fskilnik.
