You can't find that out by just processing the http request - http
doesn't know types in form fields. Only HTML(!) does that. But
as you are the one who created the form in the first place, you
should know which from fields are the hidden ones. 
Or - if you are more after a generic approach, use namespaces.
You can do that by naming hidden fields e.g. hidden:<name>, 
where <name> is of course something like foo or bar or whatever.
