Is there any limitation on total hidden fields size in any html page ? I am not able to do a form submit since I am having more hidden fileds in my page. Please let me know if there is any limitaion for the size. Thanks ------------------

Depending on your browser and server, you may have some practical limitations, but HTML doesn't specify any.

If I remember correctly, a GET request can sometimes have a size limit (I remember 256 characters - but that was back at the dawn of net civilization). A POST request is usually better at handling large amounts of data. Also, a single hidden data field's allowable size is probably determined somewhat by the server that is handling it. As far a the number of fields present on a page ... I have gone up in the thousands before with no problems (other than being pretty slow to process). Hope this helps.
