request.form error (Object reference not set to an instance of an object)

1 New Member
I'm new to the .net environment. What I'm trying to do is to have an html page call a .aspx application and pass certain information.


I have a field in the html file

<input type="text" name="UserName" >

I'm call the .aspx program
<form name="form1" method="POST" action="/application/test.aspx?">

In the application, I'm trying to retrieve the value in 'username'

reqUsername = Request.Form("U sername")

I'm getting the following error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Is there something I'm not declaring or any other ideas.

Thanks in advance

You can pass variables in the query string. This page explains it better than I could:

Just curious why you need another page? Why not just use an aspx page to show and process the form?

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
