Hye,

Is it possible to change/reset hiddenfield value to empty string from code behind?

I've tried methods below but none works;

1) hdnKey.Value = ""
2) Dim hdn As HiddenField = DirectCast(FindControl("hdnKey"), HiddenField)
hdn.Value = ""

Thanks.

---- UPDATE 1----

This is aspx codes:

XML
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel2" runat="server">
            <ContentTemplate>
            <asp:HiddenField ID="hdnKey" runat="server" />
               <%-- Other controls here --%>
            </ContentTemplate>
</asp:UpdatePanel>


* Even if i move the hiddenfield outside the update panel, it still didnt work.


--- UPDATE 2 ----

I assign value to hiddenfield using javascript.
After that, I want to reset back the value to empty string.

<script>

        document.onkeydown = KeyDownHandler;
        document.onkeyup = KeyUpHandler;

        var CTRL = false;
        var SHIFT = false;
        var ALT = false;
        var CHAR_CODE = -1;


        var confirm_value = document.createElement("INPUT");
        var hdnKey = document.getElementById('&lt;%= hdnKey.ClientID %&gt;');
        confirm_value.type = "hidden";
        confirm_value.name = "confirm_value";
        var a = hdnKey.value;

        function KeyDownHandler(e) {
            var x = '';
            if (document.all) {
                var evnt = window.event;
                x = evnt.keyCode;
            }
            else {
                x = e.keyCode;
            }
            DetectKeys(x, true);
        }

        function KeyUpHandler(e) {
            var x = '';
            if (document.all) {
                var evnt = window.event;
                x = evnt.keyCode;
            }
            else {
                x = e.keyCode;
            }
            DetectKeys(x, false);
        }

        function DetectKeys(KeyCode, IsKeyDown) {
            if (KeyCode == '16') {
                SHIFT = IsKeyDown;

                confirm_value.value = "16";
            }
            else if (KeyCode == '17') {
                CTRL = IsKeyDown;
                confirm_value.value = "17";
            }
            else if (KeyCode == '18') {
                ALT = IsKeyDown;
                confirm_value.value = "";
            }
            else {

                confirm_value.value = "";

            }

            document.forms[0].appendChild(confirm_value);
            document.forms[0].appendChild(hdnKey);
            hdnKey.value = confirm_value.value;

        }

    </script>

where you place your hidden field in aspx page? update the question with aspx page code.
normally hdnKey.Value = "" should work.

in which event you set the hidden field value? put button inside UpdatePanel2 and on click event clear the hidden field.

Is that HiddenField exist in any other control, e.g. in Gridview or ListView?

Thanks for your response. Hidden field is outside of any other controls.
