Is there any limitation on total hidden fields size in any html page ? I am not able to do a form submit since I am having more hidden fileds in my page. Please let me know if there is any limitaion for the size.
Thanks

Depending on your browser and server, you may have some practical limitations, but HTML doesn't specify any.

If I remember correctly, a GET request can sometimes have a size limit (I remember 256 characters - but that was back at the dawn of net civilization). A POST request is usually better at handling large amounts of data.
Also, a single hidden data field's allowable size is probably determined somewhat by the server that is handling it.
As far a the number of fields present on a page ... I have gone up in the thousands before with no problems (other than being pretty slow to process).
Hope this helps.
