Aspnet posts. Otherwise you wouldn't get anything in the form collection.
You write that the textedits are not visible, are they set to
Visible=false?; then they are not rendered on the page and not sent when
posting either. Check the HTML source in you favourite web browser.
Solution: Either use hidden controls or the view state.
Since MS didn't create any hidden server controls my guess is that another
solution is preferred by MS and a further guess is that it is view state
that is this preferred solution for sending hidden data back and fro.
