Whin Lopez, As the code of Vanzhyme worked for you, mark this thread as solved, found at the bottom of this page.

how would you accomplish this feat in web.ui listview.
Textbox5.text is outside of the listview

Firstnametextbox, last and middle are textboxs in inserttmplate in listview on same page.

Person clicks button one on page to fill in textbox3 - 5. then click button 2. when page reloads and listbox renders have the values of textboxt 5 in fristnametextbox in Instert template. Prior to the listview insert command being issued. Due to the user has to fill in one or two values themselves first.

how would you do that?
