repost: custom control client values gone with postback -- no solution found...


P

Pipo

Nobody knows how to get the values provided in the client can be read in the
user-control?
If have made a Web Custom Control with 2 textboxes and 1 dropdownlist.
The user fills in my control (the textboxes and the dropdownlist) and lots
more stuff on the page.
When the user wants to save the page he'll click the save button.
The server gets the postback but I can read out the filled in controls (in
my control).
The textboxes text = "" and the dropdown.selectedindex = -1.
What do I forget/do wrong....many thanks in advance!!!
