You are using a HTML control and by default, HTML controls dont have a mechanism to preserve data between postbacks. You must use server side controls that can automatically maintain their state between postbacks.

So to correct the problem you must create an instance of TextBox instead of HTML imput control.

Add the control like below

TextBox txtbox = new TextBox();

txtbox.ID = "txtID";

txtbox.Text = "GotIt";


And You can retrieve the value as

protected void Save_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


TextBox txt = (TextBox)form1.FindControl("txtID");

lblResult.Text = txt.Text;




Please mark the post as answer if it helps you!!!

Getting the textbox value after postback in runtime created textbox
Getting the textbox value after postback in runtime created textbox I have created around 30 controls in a control array like txtremarks1,txtremarks2,txtremarks3.....txtremarks30. in runtime. When i am posting the server back.I want to get the values but i dont know how to do. Can anybody please help me in this Note:I know how to use request.form("") but i dont want to use it.I also have some labels.I want to get the text in label. Thanks for the help in advance i need it in urgggentVishal Murthy In order to get value of dynamically created controls you must recreate it on each postback (in page_init or page_load)other wise you will have to use Request.Forms to access its value (in case of labels yo can use hidden fields) Another option is to create those in DataGrid or datalist by binding your array to Datagrid/datalist and then loop through datagrid/datalist to get values of your textboxes/labels.Jigar Desai-----------------------Do not forget to "Mark as Answer" on the post that helped you. Hello, you would need to recreate the controls on postback (in same order) and add them to the Controls collection by the time Load event happens (postback data loading happens after Load event). That way they'd be able to restore their state from postback data and you could access the values via these controls instances themselves.

Filling a textbox on a parent web user control from a child web form
Hi, I currently have a web user control (pf_imageselector.ascx) which is dynamically created (any number of times) on a parent web user control (pf_fillitems.ascx) which in turn has been loaded into a webform (default.aspx). On the user control is a text box called txbSelectedImage and a button. On click of the button run's this code: function OpenChild() { var strImageFile; var WinSettings = "height=580,width=630,status=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no,location=no";"pf_stockimage.aspx", null, WinSettings); } Which obviously open a child webform. From here the user can select something from a listbox and the click another button, which then hopefully passes back the selected value to the textbox on the parent user control. Code so far is: function PassSelectedImage() { var lstImages = document.forms[0].lstImages; var i = lstImages.selectedIndex; window.opener.document.forms[0].txbSelectedImage.value = lstImages.options[i].value; window.close(); } My problem is that I get an erorr stating that above is null or not an object. How do I reference the textbox that is sitting inside the user control (ID is generated at runtime), which is also sittting in another usercontrol (I know the ID of this one) on a webform (default.aspx, which as a form called Form1). Hi, If you are generating script at server, you have to use txbSelectedImage.ClientId to determine real HTML tag id at client.Leon Lan...
