Default ASP.NET Using VB.NET Chapt 3 Code error?

I am currently reading back through Beginning ASP.NET using VB.NET to clarify some bits and have come across a bit of a problem in the third chapter which I remember was a problem the first time I read the book.
At the end of chapter 3, which covers using server controls like check boxes and dropdown lists ect, there is a "try it" section that combines a number of the controls. However, this code throws up an error.
The form part of the code for the holidaypage.aspx file starts with <form action="holidayresponsepage.aspx" method="post">. This is so the results are passed to another page, the "holidayresponsepage.aspx". The first asp line is "Name:<asp:textbox id="FullName" runat="server" />"
All the other asp stuff is in this format. The form is eventually closed with </form>
When you run this in the browser I get the message "Control 'FullName' of type 'TextBox' must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server"
I have downloaded the code for this book and the code for this section is the same as mine and has the same problem.
If I remove this part of the code I get the same message but relates to the next <asp:.... /> control.
Has anyone come across this and if so what do I need to do to fix it?
Any help is much appreciated.

Hi there,

I think the book was written against the beta of the .NET framework. If I am not mistaken, early .NET betas supported pages that submitted to another page, instead of posting back to itself. However, as you found out, this is no longer supported (but again will be in future versions of ASP.NET).

Search this forum for "holidayresponse". You'll see a couple of posts dealing with this topic, and some work arounds.
