 Member nameDescription
GetUses a GET request to submit a form. 
PostUses a POST request to submit a form. 

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.
