After the runat="server" has been added to the <TR> then Bind() does not work. It reads the field value properly but writes NULL value. So, Bind() does not work or works bad. I tested the following:
1. When runat="server" is removed, than Bind() works good. The text from TextBox control is written to the database as expected.
2. When runat="server" is set and I set a default value in the ObjectDataSource - the default value is written to the database, so it means that path form ObjectDataSource works good and it means that text from TextBoxControl is not pased to the ObjectDataSource.
3. When runat="server" is set then text from TextBox.Text is never written to the database, instead null value is written.
This is simple because it goes right to the code behind page and set the text value to the value returned from my database (aside from going into more details with data access layer, etc).
What I was wondering is what if I dont want to use an ASP.net linkbutton and I simply want to use an HTML link button (as I need to call the jquery fade function). How would I set the value someValueReturnedFromADatabase to a control that is not runat=server?
I have this problem - I'm working on an ASP.NET AJAX-application on a server without .net 3.5 which means I can't use ListView (BOO!).
I decided to simply do the ugly way of making a table and giving the tbody an ID and a runat server tag, and put HtmlControls inside from the codebehind (btw - this is a usercontrol, in case it makes a difference).
This all works fine - until the page does a partial postback - and all the elements disappear, since the tag is runat server I assume it requires to be repopulated in the page load.
Is there no way to actually persist the data on partial postback? And only have the content of the control change when I say so in the back end?
I guess I could save the content in a session object upon populating the control, and just repopulate in the Page_Load with the session object - but I was hoping there was a better way to do this?
When a form with a run at server is added there will be two forms with runat server and another error occurs.The details of the error are as follows.Control 'ctl00_TextBox1' of type 'TextBox' must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server.

I have a masterpage (which we will call 'default'). This contains a second page (web user control) -'second'. And finally a third 'print' page. The 'print' page is also a web user control, however, it merely has a placeholder that contains the 'second' page.Is there a way I can add a control to the 'second' page - such as a literal, and only have it visible on the 'print' page?
When I use an anchor tag on an aspx page as below,
<a href="~/pages/page.aspx?id=<%= ServervariableName %>"> test </a>
it will get the variable value correctly assigned to id but it won't route the page correctly as the ~ will not be evaluated without the runat="server" attribute on the 'a' tag. But once I add the runat server attribute, it does not evaluate the servervariable name anymore.. how this works or what I should do to take care of both?
I have created a new Web project (.Net 3.5) and I've removed the original Default page in favour of creating a Master page and then recreating a Default with Master page. All worked lovely. Now, when I add my controls inside of the ContentPlaceHolder on the Default page, I get compiler errors when I try to access the controls from the CodeFile:
Error 4 '_Default' does not contain a definition for 'FirstName' and no extension method 'FirstName' accepting a first argument of type '_Default' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
