SmartNavigation + AutoPostBack

SLE
A web user control exposes a RadioButtonList (with AutoPostBack = true)
called "Question". This control also has an embedded RequiredFieldValidator
control.

1. Main ASPX page is populated with several "Questions".
2. Within the code of the main page, there is a SelectedIndexChanged handler
for the RadioButtonList exposed by Question. The function loops through a
number of questions on the pages and hides/shows questions (control.visible
property) depending on answers of other questions.

All works fine until I press the submit button which forces a
Me.Validate() - if there are any errors because of unanswered questions, the
above system no longer works.

If I disable "SmartNavigation" everyhting works fine but I need it because
of the postbacks which cause unacceptable scrolling (d)effects...

Any clues?
Thanks,
SLE

Last time i used smartnavigation it was buggy.

I use a modified version of this javascript instead:

This is a repro. The following simple example creates some questions (via a
web user control) on the main ASPX page. It demonstrates what I want to do,
i.e. if the answer to question 5 equals "1", question 6 should disappear.
Everything works fine until the submit button is invoked. From then on, I
cannot hide questions (though .Visible = False is stepped into). When
turning off smartnavigation, it works. Having smartnavigation without the
required field validator control works fine too...
