best way to get data: request.form, request.params, controlname.value - ASP.NET General

Hi! I think I remember somewhere that using request.form was a bad idea (I can't say I remember why). So I'm wondering: What is the best way to retrieve form values? Is request.form the best way, or request.params the best way? Or is it best to get the values by referencing directly to my controls, such as: textbox example: String val=mytextBox.text In my case, I'm using x dynamically created controls, so I'd have to loop through all of the controls of my page, check what kind of control it is, then get the data....

    then get the data.

    Hi,

    I donít think that using Request.Form is bad idea. Its just more
    comfortable to get that data with all other control data from the
    Control (If you know its name and type :-) rather then getting just the
    control value. ASP.NET adopted OO and using objects its more OO than
    retrieving single value from the form collection.

    If you just need the Control Data stick with Form collection if you use
    other Control properties, methods or events write simple function that
    find the control type and retrieve the value.
