saveviewstate for the entire page

P: n/a
I have a page that needs lookups on it, so I am forced to leave the
page to get the lookup value then return to the original page. The
way I am storing the info the user has already entered is to put each
field in a session variable. Shouldn't I be able to save the
viewstate for all the controles on a page to a single variable then
load them back with loadviewstate? I have tried this but can't seem
to get it to work, if any one has any source code doing this that
would be great.
