Convert Form Collection into a String

You can convert the entire Request.Form collection into a single string variable just by referencing the collection without specifying the key or index.

The format of the string would look like as follows:

Basically the string would contain all the name/value pairs where each name/value pair is separated from the others with an ampersand (&) character. This is useful if you want to cache the entire collection in some hidden field for future processing.

If you have following form declaration in your ASP page:

<FORM ACTION="PhoneSample.asp" METHOD="POST">
Work Phone:<INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="WorkPhone"></INPUT>
Home Phone:<INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="HomePhone"></INPUT>
Then this code would convert the Form collection into a string variable when the user clicked on the submit button.
Dim strFormCollection

' this call will convert the entire collection 
' into a string.
strFormCollection = Request.Form

' format of strFormCollection would look like
' WorkPhone=111222333&HomePhone=444555666
