public enum FormMethod

Member nameDescription
GetUses a GET request to submit a form. This API is obsolete. For information about how to develop ASP.NET mobile applications, see the www.asp.net/mobile Web site.
PostUses a POST request to submit a form. This API is obsolete. For information about how to develop ASP.NET mobile applications, see the www.asp.net/mobile Web site.

The FormMethod enumeration represents how you will submit a form. A GET request, when the Method property of the form is set to Get, is limited in the amount of data it can post. Some types of postbacks might fail when using a GET request. The advantage of using a GET request is that all the parameters are specified as part of the URL, and you can cache or save the URL.
