C# Question

Why is my Asp.Net Form arriving empty when I post from Page to Page?

I have the following HTML Code

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>

<form id="frmSystem" method="post" action="target.aspx">
<input id="txtTextField" type="text" />
<input id="btnPost" value="Submit" onclick="javascript:frmSystem.submit();" type="button" />

The target Page is coming up but the form that it is receiving is empty. I have a break point on my target.aspx page and while I can see a form, it's keys are empty and Request["txtTextField"] gives me nothing.

Any clue why?

If you are using ASP.NET MVC, the input names need to be set with the "name" attribute rather than "id".
