Is it possible to get the values that were inserted (to create an item in a list) from inside the ItemAdding event?

For ItemAdded the data is available in properties.ListItem, but for ItemAdding this is null.

Is there some way to retrieve the data inserted by the user in the create form?

Have a look at properties.AfterProperties, should hold the data for ItemAdding.
