Maintain state between 2 pages.

I have an application which consists of 2 web forms. On the first
page I have a datagrid with paging and sorting turned on. I also have a
textbox which allows me to filter the data in the grid and narrow down
the results. The grid also contains a column with hyperlinks which when
clicked should invoke the second page which displays details about the
current row.

I call the second page with Server.Transfer ("second.aspx") . On this
page I have a button which allows me to navigate back to the first
page.

My question is the following: Is there an easy way to maintain the
state of the first page (sort direction - asc., desc., sort column,
filter text, current page of the datagrid) during the trip to the
second page and be able to reconstruct it the way I left it or should I
use the Session object to store all the information?

This could be a common issue when implementing web *wizards* with
next> and <previous buttons. How to maintain page state in such a
scenario?

Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.

You will probably need to use Session State. However, if your hyperlink opens
the second page in a new browser window instead of using Server.Transfer , you
won't need to, since the first page will still be open.

This is a very open ended question. I have an app with a page that uses link buttons to change the display. On the prior page you have a list of objects. You click one of those objects to see it's details. I have nav Link buttons that allow you to go to previous or next object from the object list on previous page. In the command event of the linkbutton, the page is redrawn with the details of the next or previous object. I am using...

My question is about how to maintain view state in mobile ASP.NET across postback / request in a web farm environment. First of all, let's assume the web-farm does NOT use stick-session feature. In other words, different web servers may serve different requests in the SAME session. In non-mobile ASP.NET, my understanding is that the view state information is passed between each client browser and server with every post-back. Even if...

I have created a very simple example that doesn't work. Form1 contains a textbox and a button: Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click Response.Redirect("login.aspx") End Sub Very simple. Forget what login.aspx does, it's just somewhere to redirect to.

Hello All: I am writing an ASP.NET application that will take the user to PayPal to make some payments. Before going to PayPal, I collect relevant user information and store it in a session state slot. I'm using InProc session state.

Is there a way to maintain state across domains without resorting to ugliness like saving the session...

I've been looking at two approaches for the maintenance of Session state for a Web Service application. One approach uses the old familiar Session object which I've used in the past for Web applications. As far as I can see, the Session approach is non-standard since Web Services are supposed to be agnostic with respect to their clients. It seems that cookies are outside the Web Service standard; therefore, such a Web Service application...

Hello there, I have an interesting problem to takle. I'm creating a website that's going to be run in a local Intranet.

The sidebar is divided up into sections, that are show/hidden without postbacks using javascript. Here's an example:

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. 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,...
