[thelist] Still having .net email contact page problem

Hi Tom,

   I think I just realized your problem.  You said the other page posts to this one (i.e. this is a different page from where the user enters those values)?  That means that the name and comments fields don't exist in the ViewState of the current page.  You'll have to get a bit more old-school to grab those values.

string myName = Request.Form("name");
string myComments = Request.Form("comments");

...should do the job.

Sorry for reposting this but I am still stuck :( Shouldn't be this hard I'm thinking. Again, I
have a simple form with two fields. I want to process those two fields and include that text in
the body of an e-mail and send it off. 

Currently my form submits to the processing page below. The two lines 

string myName = name.Text;
string myComments = comments.Text;

follow the convention inputID.Text of the form. I've tried Dim'ing them too. Either way it errors
out so I am doing this wrong somehow, i either get that I need a semi-colon (which is there) or
the namespace type cannot be found. 

here is the processing page:

eHandbook Feedback" +


" + myComments + "";
msgMail.Body = strBody;


Response.Write("Email was queued to disk");

If I remove those two lines it works fine, so I just need to correctly get my form data into a
varaible - should be a simple thing I know, but can't seem to figure it out.
