State Management :: Web Controls In Collapsible Panel Does Not Maintain Viewstate?
Jul 23, 2010
I have a search page containing a collapsible panel with several controls including text, radio, drop list and check box. In the same page there is a gridview to display search result and links to other pages.Everytime I click on a link in the gridview, the viewstate is only maintained if I nevigate with the pagination of the gridview. However if I click on a link in the gridview and click the back button to the search, everything goes back to default, and the search results will be gone from the gridview. How may I enable the controls and the gridview to remain the same if I hit back button to it?
I have "n" <tables></tables> on my page and each <table> has One(1) <asp:CheckBox.. Enable ='true"/> and "x" <asp:TextBox Enabled="false"..>. Each Table looks as follows
If the exception is thrown , textBoxes are not reset but on postback textboxes appear as disabled (values are not reset)
So here is what happening on postback when exception is thrown
1) Values are not reset (that is what want)
2) Texboxes appear as Disabled (that is what I don't want on exception, REMEMBER I enable textBoxes using client side script)
I want to know that when we create custom controls, then is there State Management through ViewState done automatically or we have to handle it explicitely ?Since i have created Custom Controls that is behaving as if it is not maintaining its state on PostBack.
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? See the code behing below:
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?
I am having a ASP.net application it having three pages ,page 1,page 2,page 3,when the user navigating between this pages I want to maintain the view state in page level after postbacks(i.e.) .If a user visits page 3, passing some query loads some data .then he moves to page 1 doing some entries .after that he once again moves to page 3 now I want to display the data previously available at the time he moves to page 1, same way I want to do to my three pages up to the user logging out.
I have a system that has several large objects that need to be built and populated each and every time, and these objects may be accessed quite often as well. As a strategy, caching would not be that good for me because there are potentially thousands of these objects which are fairly large. So I propose to serialize the objects to the file system and then deserialize it when I need those objects again. I have several classes that need this serialization functionality.
These objects change as well, so on the next access I check if there were any changes and then I grab only the changes and edit the object, and then reserialize the object.
My question is what is the best way to do this, since I have several classes ..
Currently I am creating some dynamic controls on my page these can be hundreds of controls.Some of these will be available depending upon the input of the page so you can say the visibility will be different. This page in fact represents the dozens of pages.I want to create these pages from viewstate, e.g I have created 5 textboxes on page_Init() and then want to store these in Viewsate and next time if needed then load from the view state.In the other words can I create the and store the whole control object with all of the properties in viewstate, if so then how I will be able to accomplish this.
I want viewstate to stop showing its magic at particular event in my page. Problem details is :I creating dynamic panel on my page_init event ( added to parent panel on aspx ) and creating dynamic dropdown control on page load events with values 1,2,3,4,5 in which 1 is default and added this dropdown to panel i created in init event. As my controls are dynamic , I am creating these controls on postback also. I had enable viewstate property true for all controls as I want them to persist user data on postbacks. i.e. if after page gets loaded drpdown default is 1 and uses select 5 and click on any button on my form ( Postback ) dropdown should show 5 and this is working for me. But problem in one requirement is one particular after button click event on my page say ( Reset) i want my dropdown value should not persist user selection and should display default value 1. I can t reset my controls on this button click event. All I want is as these are my dynamic controls , they are created on every page_load and fresh data is loaded, on particular REset button I want my Viewstate should not map to my dropdown. and controls should show whatever default selection is.
There is a lot time involved in determining what cells get the linkbutton and I want to avoid going through that process on a postback when a user clicks one of the linkbuttons.How can I maintain these controls in the gridview after a user clicks a linkbutton and a postback is done?Right now the application has to go through the process all over again.
I have a set of dynamically-created (IE: by code) controls on my web page. Depending on which options the user decides to go (Edit/New), those controls are re-created with the appropriate information (IE: "with values" with Edit, "without values" with New).
Here's the situation:
- I create my controls in InitComplete when it comes to save the data (both on Edit/New) contained within the controls.
- I create my controls in PreLoad when it comes to load them initially (Both on Edit/New) in order to avoid the ViewState to kick in.
However, despite creating the controls after the ViewState has been applied (technically), the controls still somehow retain the pre-postback's information. IE: if I have options 2 and 4 selected and I choose "New", which should show the options without being selected, they remain selected no matter what. And this is true despite changing their values in the PreLoad state. From my understanding, creating a control in this fashion and at that point in the page lifecycle should override any values the ViewState might have had for those controls. I have also tried to disable the parent's control viewstate (Table.EnableViewState = false) again, to no avail.
I've tried using the Me.ViewState.clear() and Me.ClearChildViewSate prior to loading the initial values as well, but again all for naught. I do understand that any control created after the Init phase of the lifecycle has to play "catchup" with the current state, however I would expect that clearing the ViewState prior to creating the controls would fix this issue. It doesn't seem to.
I have one web application. In that, I have two pages. One is view/edit page and another one is login page. The view/edit page contains one edit button and one login button.
First I execute view/edit page, at that time I dont want to show edit button. When user clicks login button, the page will be redirected to login page, where the user has to enter username and password. If user enters both correct, again the page will be redirected back to view/edit page. This time, the edit button has to be shown to make some modifications, since the user is authenticated.
I tried this thing by using session with cookieless. It works perfectly but some times it shows web page not available. I made session timeout 120 minutes and cookieless is true. In URL session ID also available.
So, whats the alternate way to maintain user log state or whats wrong in web.config file.
I read this article first to try to solve this issue, but I am already loading the controls in the Init phase of the page, yet viewstate is not persisting. Any ideas as to why? (Of note is that this is for a custom module in DNN and I do have some AJAX update panels on the page, though this section is not within an update panel, for what it's worth.)
As an overview of what I've got:
1. LoadControl.ascx - based on reading query string parameters, determines whether to load the master or the detail .ascx. 2. Master.ascx 3. Detail.ascx
In my master control I dynamically load either a master or detail sub-control in the page_Init. The detail page has a treeview control and then uses a multi-view control to display the panel associated with the depth of the node selected on the tree. On the panel being displayed I have a cascading ddl within a detailsview control which initiates a postback to select the child ddl based on the parent ddl selection. However, when the page refreshes after the postback, both ddls have resorted to their default selection.
What is interesting however, and I just realized this as I am typing, is that the Treeview is populated when the page comes back from the postback, so that is only possible if viewstate is being persisted right? (See the page_load code and you'll see that Call PopulateRootLevel(intTreeUserID) which populates the treeview, is not called on postbacks....hmmm.
Any ideas as to why the treeview maintains viewstate but not my ddls???? But though the tree is populated, I do have to explicitly select the node again and set the panel that the detailsview control is on to visible again too....
I have a page that loads a usercontrol dynamically. Depended on the user's actions, this control may be unloaded in Page_PreRender and a different control may be loaded instead. I am attempting to use the solution outlined by Mark DotNet Evans in this post: http://forums.asp.net/p/1491790/3814320.aspx
This all works great, except if the user clicks the refresh button in the browser just after the change of usercontrol. Then, I get an error
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. ...
I assume the error is caused by the browser re-posting the request with the old viewstate that matched the control tree when the page was loaded, but no longer does. How can I prevent getting an error when the user reloads the page?
I am writing a search results page for an airline booking system. I have Next/Previous buttons to view flights for the next or previous days. The way i have done my results grid is that i use an HtmlTable and dynamically add rows, cells and controls into the cells. This gives ultimate flexibility given that we can add any control type we want and have it function as it does everywhere else in the system. As you should be aware - i must recreate these controls each time the page is reloaded (in the page_init event) since asp does not handle this automatically.
When they go next/previous it refreshes the flight data and re-populates the grids. If they select a flight in the return grid (by checking the RadioButton), and go next on the FIRST leg grid, the selection of the return leg stays the same after the postback - which is great. But the problem is, if the flight they selected on the return leg is no longer available it will not create the control and i get the following error;
"Microsoft JScript runtime error: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerServerErrorException: 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. For example, when adding controls dynamically, the controls added during a post-back must match the type and position of the controls added during the initial request."
Is there any way to tell asp.net that if you do not find the control anymore, simply ignore it rather than throwing the error? The nature of this design is that there potentioally WILL be a different layout after the page is posted back.
I have a requirement where i need to download mutiple files as a single zip file.There is linkbutton named HOME as well in the page. when this linkbutton is clicked it should redirect to homepage.aspx. I found a ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll in net and used in my website. Here is the code
With the above code i got the expected result i,e. i can zip the files and save on client system. But the problem is after saving/canceling the zip file if user clicks on linkbutton in the page_load event Session[getdata] became null. there is no data in Session. what might be the problem? Actually it should redirect to homepage.aspx but its going to login.aspx because Session[getdata] is null.
I have to maintain session of two users on a sigle page.And the path is. UserPath:

1.Invite logs in with his credentials(We retrive their credentials from invites table). 2.He is directed to go to Share.aspx and list the items he require. 3.And he logs out.
Now i have problem in maintaining session for both the user and invite. How can i maintain the session so,that the user can identify a particular invite from the list of invites an his chosen items.
I have created a matser page with a two radio buttons, text box and a button. Whenever user sets some values to these control and clicks the button, i will navigating him from one content page to another based on the data he has entered. The problem is after the content page load, the values selected/given in the controls(radio button, text box) are getting cleared.
