Lo peeps, I think all Im lookinf for is confirmation on this one really.<BR><BR>Basically what I have is a search box on a web site (raw) which sets a session variable and posts back to a results page, which picks up the search criteria from the session.<BR><BR>If I move this search box into a user control, keeping the code identical, when it populates the session the variables remain as if the page was fresh and none of the form elements had been changed.<BR><BR>Now just had a thought and is it because on the post back the form elements arent boxes arent populated so the post back code of the user control reads the current form status instead of what was originally posted and therfore that gets put into the session ?!?!<BR><BR>Any views or knowledge about user controls and postbacks and sessions would be appreciated
