Accessing input fields declared outside the form

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Jessica Weiner, Jul 5, 2006.

  1. I have an input field defined outside the <form> area. Its a simple html
    text input that is used to enter the number of hours.

    <input id="HoursField" name="hours" type="text" />

    I want to access this field from the server side (c# code). I tried these
    two methods to access the field but they dont work. Please help.

    String[] tempArray;
    tempArray = Request.Form.GetValues("hours");
    Response.Write (tempArray[0]);


    string val = Request.QueryString["hours"].ToString();
    Response.Write (val);

    don't declare it outside the form tag.
    <input id="hoursfield" name="hours" type="text" runat="server">

    and then use it in script tags
    string hours="";
