PAGES WITHOUT <INPUT type="submit"> TAG:

Some ASP.NET pages are constructed in such a way that they do not have a <INPUT type="submit"> button, but rather use "post-back" techniques to submit a form. If this is the case, you should include __EVENTTARGET in your POST data:

__EVENTTARGET=some_id

Where "some_id" is the tag id of the button/link that users click to submit the form which causes the page to post-back and submit the form.


PAGES WITH <INPUT type="submit"> TAG:

include __EVENTTARGET in your POST data:

__EVENTTARGET=tag_name

Where "tag_name" is the name attribute of the <INPUT type="submit"> tag that users click to submit the form which causes the page to post-back and submit the form.
