In the postback he form and fields should be created in order to process
and validate the values and persist data. I would assume that if the values
were incorrect you would render the page again to show the error messages.
Only when everything is correct would you redirect to another page.

But to answer your question you could put conditional code around
constructing your controls with either:

just that form and check:

Hope this helps.

Kind regards
