ASP.NET 2.0: Submit Disabled Controls
When the form was submitted, it didn’t submit the contents of the disabled textbox.
It puzzled me, but then I found that ASP.NET 2.0 doesn’t submit client-side disabled controls by default. However, there is an easy way to force it to do so.
All you have to do is to put this line in the Page_Load:
Page.Form.SubmitDisabledControls = true;
The reason why I’ve never seen this property before, is that I have never had the need for it. I guess I’m just slow, but then again, slow is the new fast.
