C# - Force ViewState Restoration After Child Controls Are Recreated?

Dec 21, 2010

Consider I have 2 controls, C and CompositeC which contains C. Both C and CompositeC have ViewState.

Now consider a third control causes a postback.

The resulting life cycle will be as follow:

CompositeC tries to restore state. To do so it needs to create the child controls, so it creates C.
When C is created it's ViewState is restored.The third control's postback event is triggered. At this time a handler calls CompositeC.RecreatedChildControls() and C is created again.Everything renders.

The problem is that C state is not restored again after step 3. RecreateChildControls method should modify the control's state so that when C is reintroduced to the CompositeC control's collection it's viewstate is automatically restored but it doesn't.

Forms Data Controls :: DropDownList Bind Error - Force Order Of FormView And Child Controls Load?

May 4, 2010

I have a FormView with an EditTemplate.And the EditTemplate contains an ascx control:



The contents of the ascx control has TextBox and DropDownList controls binding to the results of the FormView's ObjectDataSource through Text='<%# Eval("field1") %>'and SelectedValue='<%# Eval("field2") %>'.This works fine and I have been building all of my front end pieces like this as <asp:Panels> rendering as FieldSets that go 100% across the screen.And we call these areas "strips" accross the screen.But now I've run into a problem.One TextBox and one DropDown bind fine to a Ticket Object.But the DropDownList that works has its <asp:ListItems> hardcoded before hand.Now I have DropDownList that gets populated through a WebService in the ascx's
code behind like this:

public partial class UserControls_FormControls_PntipUpdtFaaInfo :
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (!Page.IsPostBack)


The Problem I think is the FormView is trying to do its Bind to the objectDataSource before its child ascx control is loaded in the Edit Template.And I am getting this error:

Databinding methods such as Eval(),XPath(),and Bind() can only be used in the context of a databound control.Meaning that the control must already be databound to bind the selectedValue to a Property of the TicketObject.Is there an easy way to force the order of loading to make the PntipUpdtFaaInfo control load and have its Page_Load execute and bind ddlEquip before the FormView does its first dataBind and executing its Evals?Otherwise I have to take out the eval on the ddlEquip SelectedValue attribute and go to the Parent Page and hack and force everything to happen when it needs to.This layout has worked out well for me.All of the ascx area strips across the screen share the same Validation Summary for example.It allows me to think about one section at a time and the Properties to the Business Obect and CRUD methods as I go.But this is a big brick wall I've hit.

Web Forms :: To Force A Page To Refresh Without Loosing VIEWSTATE Information?

Jul 19, 2010

I have an ASP.Net site that has master pages. The master page has some calls to functions to get information from a database. Then in one of the parts of the master page I have form that modifies that information. So when the user clicks a button the information in the database is updated but the display of that information doesn't update until the page is refreshed or another link is followed.

I would like to know how to force a page to refresh without loosing VIEWSTATE information so that the newly updated data in the database will appear correctly on the screen.

C# - How To Avoid Persisting Data Through ViewState For A Child Control

Mar 3, 2010

I have a control (say, a DataGrid or a ComboBox) which is a child of a user control. I want to DataBind it on every request, rather than have it's state persist through ViewState. I need to leave EnableViewState=true however. This means, I think, that I need to call DataBind before TrackViewState() is called.

I read the fantastic blog post TRULY Understanding ViewState and it answers my question in 4. Initializing child controls programmatically. However, the article's solutions are less-than-ideal: create child controls dynamically (I'm not and can't -- too much existing code), use a 3rd party CodeExpressionBuilder (would much prefer this was in code-behind), and use OnPreInit (which "doesn't help you what-so-ever if you are developing a CONTROL").

Gridview - Can Explicitly Force To Re-load The ViewState Data Of Any Data-contro

Jun 30, 2010

I have a problem regarding to asp.net lifecylce hierarchy.

Basically, I have one user control which has a GridView in it. And this GridView is dynamically generated based on a public property on the control (named Parameter in the simplified code below).

Everything is fine when I insert this control in an aspx page, set its Parameter property and call DataBind(Parameter) on it. GridView is generated and populated on the UI.

Problem occurs when I post-back the page. I have to regenerate the GridView structure so that the data in the ViewState of the control can be used to populate the GridView. So that I can achieve its content. But as long as the GridView structure is generated dynamically and it is based on the Parameter property set on it, this is not possible. Because the OnInit of the user control is called before the OnInit of the page and that is why the Parameter property is set after the generation of the GridView structure. As a result I get an empty Gridview in the end.

Here is the code in a simplified way.

Can you give me some recommendation how to overcome this?

Can I explicitly force asp.NET to re-load the ViewState of a gridview?

Is There An Event That Occurs After Postback, But Before The Page Is Destroyed/recreated

May 3, 2010

My ASP.NET form contains a collection of dynamically-created radiobuttons that are created and configured in the Page_Load event handler.

Normally, I process postback data in the Page_Load handler, using the condition:

if (IsPostBack)

However, since the controls that I need to access are created IN the Page_Load handler, the postback data from the previous rendering of the page is lost. To better illustrate the problem, here is an outline of the events as they occur:

1-Page_Load is invoked for the first time
2-An unknown number of radiobuttons are created dynamically
3-The radiobuttons are configured, based on information present on the server
4-The radiobuttons are added to the page's content
5-The user selects an option, and clicks the submit button
6-The Page_Load handler is invoked for the second time
7-The radio-buttons are added dynamically, exactly as before
8-The radio-button that the user checked is seemingly non-existant for processing

It seems like I need to be processing different parts of this in different event handlers. Is there an event that occurs after postback, but while the original radiobuttons are still accessible?

State Management :: Failed To Load Viewstate. The Control Tree Into Which Viewstate Is Being Loaded Must Match ?

Oct 9, 2010

Now here is the weird thing. First i am running it locally on the built in vs2008 web server.I load my control in fine, do a postback from a linkbutton, locally on my machine it all works fine, no issue.However when it goes onto my host, it falls over with the message:

Failed to load viewstate. The control tree into which viewstate is being loaded must match the control tree that was used to save viewstate during the previous request.Now i also load controls dynamically and use postbacks and things in the admin area of the site...and that works fine, however my front end just keeps failing?

State Management :: ViewState - Does The Master Page Have Its Viewstate

Apr 30, 2010

I have been getting this error a lot lately with some of my users, and I had a couple of concerns with view state and I have read so many articles but I am still lost..

1. I use masterpage on all the pages and I need viewstate for some of the pages but..

There is a page where a user will fill out the information and then submit this data to a cgi server, and it is where I get most of the Client Disconnected errors, what would happen if I disable viewstate when they click on that button?

Now when a user browses from one page to another, does the view state from the previous page get deleted? If not how would I delete it?

Does the master page have its own viewstate? Would I be able to make sure none of items on my master page are using the viewstate?

C# - Page With ViewState Disabled Still Be Validating A Viewstate Field?

Sep 24, 2010

I have a shopping cart page (Cart.aspx) that has a button that will (sometimes) post to a third party payment gateway, if payment is necessary. The payment gateway will process the payment and then do a silent post to my website (Order.aspx) so I can update the order status.

Order.aspx always throws an invalid viewstate error, even though viewstate is disabled on the page.

What's happening is that Cart.aspx (which has viewstate enabled) posts to the payment gateway, and the gateway will post it back as part of the silent post. Even though Order.aspx has viewstate disabled and validation disabled, it still tries to validate the __viewstate field it's being given.

I know setting EnableViewState=false will disable the rendering of the __viewstate field, but if another page provides the field, shouldn't it still skip validation? I tried calling ViewState.Clear() on the Page_Init event of Order.aspx, but ViewState is apparently empty. how to get around this? I don't want to disable ViewState on Cart.aspx (in some cases it may be necessary), but I can't figure out how to clear it on Order.aspx.

Forms Data Controls :: Force A Listview ItemDataBound Event To Fire?

Apr 20, 2010

I am populating an asp.net listview control from my page_load event. Unfortunately, due to my projects requirements, I have to use a third party control within my listviews ItemTemplate that needs to have database values written to its attributes before my listview control is bound, if this is not the case my control flags a null reference exception error. From some investigation into the listview control, it seems that the only way to do this is through my listviews ItemDataBound event as my thrid party control will hold different value depending on each row.was wondering if it's at all possible to force my listviews ItemDataBound event to fire before I call mylistview.databind();?

Forms Data Controls :: Formview Force Table Width In Templates?

Mar 29, 2010

to force a table width in Formview control templates? I have created a table in the ItemTemplate that works fine but I can't seem to get the table to fill the entire width of the display area. I tried wrapping the entire FormView
in a div tag and setting the width to 98% but it didn't work either. Aplogies in advance if this has already been asked. I found a lot of references to GirdView (which didn't help) and nothing helpful r/e FormView except the div tag suggestion.

Here is the code I am using for the ItemTemplate (VS 2008, VB [preferred], in a master page):

VS 2010 - Master / Child Page Layout - Embed Third Party Website As Child Page

Aug 29, 2011

I have a web application that uses the master/child page layout you get by default (at least in a VS2010 web project). The Masterpage has a NavigationMenu, each item on that NavigationMenu has a NavigateUrl that looks like "~/Pages/MyPage.aspx". This automatically opens 'MyPage' in the Content of the Masterpage, so that the master page with menu and header etc stays visible.

Now, the client has a guestbook on her old website (I'm basically rebuilding her website, adding the ability for her to upload new content in her browser), and she wants to keep it. This guestbook is from a 'free guestbook' third party website, over which I have no control. It's simply a website in the form [URL] .... which shows the guestbook for a user 'Username'.

In her old website, I was using frames, so the menu on the left side was in a different frame, and I would simply open the third party website in the center frame. That would create the illusion that the guestbook was on her site, while it was actually a completely different website in a separate frame.

In my new website I'm no longer using frames, but the master/child layout as explained. Is it still possible to 'host' or 'embed' this third party website as a 'child' of the master page?

I tried just putting the url to the guestbook in the NavigateUrl of a NavigationMenu item, but that doesn't work, it just navigates to the third party website and doesn't embed it in any way.

Copy & Paste Controls In Source View Of ASPX Pages - Force VS Not To Touch IDs?

Feb 18, 2010

If I drag a control from the toolbox in Visual Studio (2008+SP1) into an ASPX page I get a proposal for an ID: <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" /> That's nice and helps not to forget to assign an ID. Most of the time I rename the ID like: <asp:Button ID="MySpecialButtonForSpecialTask1" runat="server" Text="Button" />

Now I have a task 2 (3, 4, ..., n) and need a button "MySpecialButtonForSpecialTask2". So I copy and paste the first one with ID="MySpecialButtonForSpecialTask1". That's the result: <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" /> That's not nice since I need to change now "Button1" to "MySpecialButtonForSpecialTask2" but I would prefer to change "MySpecialButtonForSpecialTask1" to "MySpecialButtonForSpecialTask2". Is there any setting or trick in VS to prevent assigning new IDs after copy and paste?

I'm not looking for the option "Tools > Options > Text Editor > HTML> Miscellaneous > Auto ID elements on paste in Source view" since it also turns off creating IDs for controls inserted from the toolbox. I only would like to switch off this when copy & paste.

Handling Viewstate And Controls?

Apr 16, 2010

lately I'm using less and less the ASP.NET controls and also turns off the viewstate in almost any page, in my opinion its easier to maintain your pages, you get more control over what happening and most importantly it gives a serious performance boost to large pages (no view state). I'm also using a lot of ajax in my projects (without the script manager / updatecontrol but via javascript) is anyone here working like this? is this bad practice ?

ViewState - How To Custom Controls In A GridView

May 13, 2010

I have a gridview that is populated on the Page_Load event if !PostBack is true. The gridview has several column, each header template has a custom control that I'm using to sort the data in a more efficient way than what the ASP.NET gridview offers.

These custom controls have an OnSort event, I have tried defining them in the markup (was always null after postback) and hooking them up each time the page is loaded (now works).

Basically on a page postback, the ViewState for the custom controls in the gridview are being 'lost'. This is a problem as I have a Sort Direction field that toggles between Asc and Desc, and I rely heavily on the ViewState to remember the last value. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong here? Or how I could change my code to keep the ViewState.

When you create an ASP.NET page with no controls and runs it, a view state hidden field is added.

Looking at what's in it (with ViewStateDecorder) reveals that there's a single value there that contains a number.

My question is - what is this number?

P.S. I guess this value appears on every page, with or without controls.
