(only visible in design mode)


A Hidden field is the equivalent of a Text Box, except that a hidden field has no visual representation on the rendered page. Unless the user views the source HTML for a page, there is no visual indication of the existence of a Hidden field. Hidden fields are often used to hold data that needs to be submitted or propagated but the user should not or does not need to see the data.

Hidden fields are also useful when entering information that does not require user input. For example, you can have a hidden field that contains the current date. The date is automatically entered into the field by using a function to set the value of the Default property of the field. The user will not be aware of the fields existence and does not have to enter the value, but the hidden field will submit the value when the form is submitted.
