GridView & FormView: Failed to load viewstate

Hello,

I have a web page that has a GridView and a FormView, each in its own
panel. The GridView shows a list of records in a database. When a row in
the GridView is selected the FormView Panel becomes visible.

pnlGridViewSear chList
pnlFormView

The problem that I am having is that if I set the FormView Panel's
visibility to false after I update a record, I get the "Failed to load
viewstate" error the next time I click on a GridView record. This only
happens when I do an update. If I select cancel from the ReadOnly mode, the
page works fine.

protected void fvDetail_ItemUp dated(object sender,
FormViewUpdated EventArgs e)
{
//this.pnlFormVie w.Visible= false;
this.gvSearchLi st.DataBind();
}

My question is how can I hide the FormView Panel after I update a record
without getting the "Failed to load viewstate" error?

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thanks, sck10
The 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. 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.

Hi,

From the error description, it seems related to control tree get changed
between viewstate saving and loading phases. However, from the code you
posted, I cannot see apparent causes. You might have to send me more
complete code to inspect. Thanks.

Re: ASP.NET 2.0 I would like suggestions or code examples on how to collect a variable length list of input data (item# & item quantity specifically).

Does this approach sound feasible or are there better alternatives? My problem is that I don't...

Hi All, I have a GridView inside the EditItemTemplate of a FormView. Both FormView and GridView are data bound using an ObjectDataSource. When the FormView's ObjectDataSource object has a SelectParameters with a SessionParameter in the parameters collection and the object stored in the Session is a reference type, the DataGrid fails to enter Line Editing mode. Is this a bug? Is there a workaround for this problem?
