values of web controls in user control can not be access from other pages???

I have aspx page(brief code: includes ascx file)

<%@ Register Src="reseller.ascx" TagName="reseller" TagPrefix="uc1" %>


form id="form1" runat="server">


uc1:reseller ID="idreseller" runat="server" />


the code for asxc file . i have the PostBackUrl to reseller.aspx


asp:TextBox ID="txtPostCode" runat="server" CssClass="form1" Width="50" MaxLength="4" />


asp:ImageButton ID="ibtn"  ImageUrl="images/searchbutton.jpg" PostBackUrl="~/reseller.aspx" runat="server"  />

In my reseller page i try to read the post value of control txtPostCode from the previous aspx page.; but the value is always null(error message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object). Can anyone pls explain why this is happening.

Note: works fine if i add the textbox and imagebutton control directly to the aspx page(not using asxc)

you can add <%@ PreviousPageType VirtualPath ="previousPage.aspx"  %> to the reseller.aspx

and then in reseller.aspx use

 TextBox t=(TextBox )(PreviousPage.FindControl("WebUserControl1").FindControl("TextBox1"));

 to referece the textBox in the WebUserControl

the following is my sample code

my first page

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default3.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default3" %>

<%@ Register Src="WebUserControl.ascx" TagName="WebUserControl" TagPrefix="uc1" %>

  <form id="form1" runat="server">
                  <uc1:WebUserControl ID="WebUserControl1" runat="server" />

my second page

<%@ PreviousPageType VirtualPath ="~/Default3.aspx"  %>

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        TextBox t=(TextBox )(PreviousPage.FindControl("WebUserControl1").FindControl("TextBox1"));

        TextBox1.Text = t.Text;

hope it helps
