Pass Hidden Input from View to MVC Controller

Make sure your input has an id AND name attribute. Having just the id attribute will not work.

<% using (Html.BeginForm("MyAction", "Controller", FormMethod.Post, new { id = "formId", target = "_self" })) 
   { %>
     <input type="hidden" name="myHidden" id="myHidden" value="false" />
<% } %>

Then in the controller, access the form values like this.

public ActionResult MyAction(FormCollection form)
     string myHiddenInput= form["myHidden"];
