Hi

In my ASP.net I have the following input box
<input type="text" name="txtHeight1" placeholder="From" id="txtHeight1" class="auto-style5"/>

Open in new window


How do I use the value that is input using VB.net?

Rebuild solution? Also try to check your  apsx page and make sure that it contains a txtHeigt1 with that name, and that it is declared as runat="server"
