In c# i have created a form having two text fields for name and password

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.IO;
using System.Net;
namespace loginphp
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()
        private String readHtmlPage(string url)
            //setup some variables

            String username = "rk";
            String password = "rk";
            //String firstname = "John";
            //String lastname = "Smith";

            //setup some variables end

            String result = "";
            String strPost = "name=" + username + "&password=" + password ; //+"&firstname=" + firstname + "&lastname=" + lastname;
            StreamWriter myWriter = null;
            HttpWebRequest objRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url);
            objRequest.Method = "POST";
            objRequest.ContentLength = strPost.Length;
            objRequest.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";
                myWriter = new StreamWriter(objRequest.GetRequestStream());
            catch (Exception e)
                return e.Message;
            HttpWebResponse objResponse = (HttpWebResponse)objRequest.GetResponse();
            using (StreamReader sr =
               new StreamReader(objResponse.GetResponseStream()))
                result = sr.ReadToEnd();
                // Close and clean up the StreamReader
            return result;
        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            label3.Text= readHtmlPage("http://localhost/spotkeys/login.html");

but it only returns the following

<form action="checklogin.php" method="POST">

Your code is completely wrong.

It does't mean...objRequest.ContentLength = strPost.Length;
