Invalid postback or callback argument error

P: n/a
I have a DataList in which the ItemTemplate contains two Button controls
that use EventBubbling. When I click either of them I receive the following
error:

Server Error in '/' Application.

If this is what I think it may be, then make sure you're not calling the
same sub that pulls from your data source twice.

For instance, if you created a sub procedure that populates your
datalist and you are calling it when the user clicks a button within
your itemtemplate, after the data processing has been done (or whatever
processing you're doing with that button), make sure that it isn't also
being called in your Page_load sub. When your page FIRST loads and you
populate the datalist control, make sure that you have it within a If
Not Page.IsPostBack and not where it gets called on every load.

That's how I ran into the same error.

Nathan,

There is no problem with crossposting. But you are crossposting it so much,
that I expect that you get your answer in another newsgroup than I am active
in for this question.
