Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.MobileControls.FormMethod
The method used to submit the form.

A get request is limited in the amount of data it can post. Some types of postbacks might fail when using a get request. The advantage of a get request is that all the parameters are specified as part of the URL, and the URL can be cached or saved. The elements of a post request are contained within the HttpRequest.Form.
