Any cool solution to save ENTIRE screen content and state?

We have an ASPX (C#) webform which hosts dropdownlists, textboxes, grids,
checkboxes, etc.
The users want to:

#1 - "FREEZE" the entire webpage contents (and state)
#2 - move IE browser to another URL (possibly several URLs ... maybe
even terminate the session and restart another session an hour+ later)
#3 - but eventually to return to the original FROZEN page
#4 - and .... shazam .... everything is exactly like they left it

I know I could write code to save the contents and state of each control
into the database ONE CONTROL AT A TIME. Then reconstitute the form later ONE
CONTROL AT A TIME. But that would be SOOOOOO much work.

Does anyone know a COOL way to capture

#1 - an entire webpage and state in a serializable form
#2 - save the capture to a database file
#3 - reconstitute the entire saved page later

Thanks - Volking

P.S. this entire operation happens in an HTTPS environment where users are
authenticated against Active Directory. So security is ok.

Note: Was directed to RE-POST this Q from ASP NG into this NG.

Hello Frederick:

You might find the @outputCache on the page doing a similar effect. I do
not know though if it would behave differently if viewed over SSL.

Hi, I am using Divs with CSS to setup a layout for a site. I am using the <Div>s and style sheets below. I want the TopMenu to go across the entire top of the browser. It does go across the entire top, but let say my screen resolution is 800x600 and the "Content" Div forces scroll bars for the user to scroll to the right to see an object then the TopMenu doesn't go all the way across. The top menu will only go to the screen...

Hi, I have a program which will continue to run for several days. When it is running, I can't do anything except waiting because it takes over most of the CUP time. Is it possible that the program can save all running data to a file when I want it to stop, and can reload the data and continue to run from where it stops when the computer is free ?

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
