Request.QuerySt ring() and/or Request.Form()

VS.NET 2002/VB

Is it possible to retrieve HTML form variables that are hidden input types using
Request.QuerySt ring() and/or Request.Form()?

I have tried various ways of using those, but to no avail. My HTML form method is set to POST, and I
thought I had read somewhere that this could be done.

If it is not possible, is there any way to retrieve HTML form variables into my .aspx page?

Thanks,
George

Request.QuerySt ring is only for parameters passed in the URL.

Request.Form works very nicely for retrieving posted hidden controls.

Marina,

Actually, I didn't really explain my problem very well.

I have an .htm page that uses an HTML form button to open my .aspx page in a new window without any
buttons on it. That may be why I can't retrieve my hidden inputs in the HTML form, because, even
though the method is set to POST, the action is set to call a javascript function that uses
window.open() to open my .aspx page in the new window, instead of the action being set to call the
..aspx page directly.

I am not certain, but is it possible to retrieve those hidden inputs like that? If not, is there
anyway of doing it?

Thanks,
George

If we use GET protocol, we can use either Request("controlname") or Request.QueryString("controlname") to get the data entered by the user. But if we use POST protocol, we MUST use Request("controlname"), and Request.QueryString("controlname") won't work. I think Request("controlname") means Request.Form("controlname"), which is used for POST protocol. But seems like it works for GET protocol too. Here's the code I tested. <%

Hello! I would like to request a new method on the XsltArgumentList class, allowing developers to check the presense of a key/value pair. If you try to add a key/value pair that has already been defined in the list, an exception is thrown. Rather than using the "GetParam" method, it would be usefull to have a method called ".Exists" available on the XsltArgumentList. I think this allows for cleaner and more readable code.
