Menu control : Cross page posting and posted values in nested controls?

I've created a dyrnamic template for a menu control which renders either a textbox or a linkbutton. The textbox acts as an search input field. The value of this field then acts as input to another page(on another frame actually).

What happens is that clicking on the linkbutton will do a postback to Main.aspx(which resides in a frame called 'MainWindow').

When the value arrives at Main.aspx, I see the value from 'searchMovies' textbox posted into the Request.form collection as : 'NavigationMenu$ctl05$searchMovies' with the value that was keyed in.

From main.aspx, does anyone know how I can retrieve the value of the searchMovies inputbox programatically? Perhaps starting with PreviousPage.FindControl("NavigationMenu") and so forth, and finally being able to get something like .FindControl("searchMovies") ? My last option would be to parse the Request.Form collection if it can't be done this way.

Would appreciate any input or help..

Sample code below :

Public Class MenuTemplate

   Implements ITemplate

Public Sub InstantiateIn(ByVal container As System.Web.UI.Control) Implements System.Web.UI.ITemplate.InstantiateIn

   Dim lb As New LinkButton
   Dim inp As New TextBox
Dim mtc As MenuItemTemplateContainer
Dim mi As MenuItem

   mtc = CType(container, MenuItemTemplateContainer)
   mi =
CType(mtc.DataItem, MenuItem)

   If mi.Text = "searchMovies" Then
      inp.ID = "searchMovies"
      inp.Attributes.Add("onClick", "event.cancelBubble=true;event.returnValue=false;")
      lb.Text = mi.Text
      lb.PostBackUrl =
End If

End Sub

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

   ...........some code.........

   client.RegisterOnSubmitStatement(Me.GetType,    "submit"      "Form1.action='Main.aspx';'MainWindow';")

   NavigationMenu.DynamicItemTemplate = New MenuTemplate(sm)

End Sub

<form id="Form1" runat="server" action="Main.aspx">
<h3>Menu MenuItemClick Example</h3>

<asp:menu id="NavigationMenu"
staticdisplaylevels="2" staticsubmenuindent="10px"
orientation="Horizontal" onmenuitemclick="NavigationMenu_MenuItemClick"
target="MainWindow" runat="server">

<asp:menuitem text="Movies"tooltip="Movies" value="Movies">
<asp:menuitem text="Action" tooltip="Action" value="Action" navigateurl="Main.aspx" />
<asp:menuitem text="Drama" tooltip="Drama" value="Drama" navigateurl="Main.aspx" />
<asp:menuitem text="Musical" tooltip="Musical" value="Musical" target="MainWindow" navigateurl="Main.aspx"/>
<asp:menuitem text="searchMovies" tooltip="Search Movies" value="searchMovies"/>

The menu control is out of my control
Here's my situation, I've been searching for about 2 weeks to try to do this without any luck.

I have the menu just how I want it. Now, I want to be able to hide certain nodes in the menu. Not so users cant access them (some people have suggested using access control but this...

How do you control the menu control?
I am using the ASP 2.0 menu control.  When my submenus display, they display on top of the text that is already there from the content page.  The result is an unreadable mixture of text from both the page and the submenu.  Is there a way to force the submenu text to be on top of the content page's text without showing the content page text?  I don't see a property that can do this.  Thanks. The pop out panels should not be transparent and they should appear on top of the content page (unless the z-index of your controls are greater than 1). Please could you pr...

Custom Control within a Control Control
I am developing a custom controls that will render headers for different web sites. Within these controls, I want to place another custom control that will change the language. I created the language control and had it implement IPostBackDataHandler. This control works fine if I drag it on a new web form, but if I tell a header custom control to render it problems occur. The Language Selector custom control does not have a Page member anymore and the event handlers do not work. Does anyone have any experience with doing something similiar? Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks, ...

Control.Value and Control.SelectedItem.Value
Can someone explain to me the difference between say, Dropdownlist.SelectedItem.Value and Dropdownlist.SelectedValue?? Just curious, Thanks!Tim These are going to return the same thing. dropdownlist.selectedvalue is a shortcut to get the currently selected value in the dropdown. If that is all you want then you can just use that. If you want to access the currently selected item you can use dropdownlist.selecteditem and that return the item and you can then access any of the item's properties, including in this case the value property. If this post answered your question please r...
