EnableViewState error

Experts,
I am developing a .net mobile page. I was getting the error page saying the session expired on the mobile. So for the list box (Mobile:SelectionList) that I am using I set EnableViewState=False to solved the problem.
But now, while using EnableViewState=False , I am getting the following error on any button click (mostly clicking a button second time).  If I took this flag out the page is okay.

Any idea?

Thanks in anticipation

Thanks for thr reply

Following the code that I am using

                        protected void LoadSelectionList(int opt){
                           DataSet ds = new DataSet();
                           ds = LoadDetails(opt);
   
                           SelectionList1.DataSource = ds;
                           SelectionList1.DataValueField = "j_id";
                           SelectionList1.DataBind ();
                        }


                        System.Data.DataSet LoadDetails(int j_JSC_ID) {
                            string connectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Ole DB Services=-4; Data Source=C:\\Copy_Of_Live_DB\\JobDet.mdb";
                            System.Data.IDbConnection dbConnection = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection(connectionString);
   
                            string queryString = "SELECT [Jobs].[J_ID] ,j_c_number,j_fault_line1 FROM [Jobs] WHERE ([Jobs].[J_JSC_ID] = " +
                   "@J_JSC_ID)";
                            System.Data.IDbCommand dbCommand = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand();
                            dbCommand.CommandText = queryString;
                            dbCommand.Connection = dbConnection;
   
                            System.Data.IDataParameter dbParam_j_JSC_ID = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbParameter();
                            dbParam_j_JSC_ID.ParameterName = "@J_JSC_ID";
                            dbParam_j_JSC_ID.Value = j_JSC_ID;
                            dbParam_j_JSC_ID.DbType = System.Data.DbType.Int32;
                            dbCommand.Parameters.Add(dbParam_j_JSC_ID);
   
                            System.Data.IDbDataAdapter dataAdapter = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter();
                            dataAdapter.SelectCommand = dbCommand;
                            System.Data.DataSet dataSet = new System.Data.DataSet();
                            dataAdapter.Fill(dataSet);
   
                            return dataSet;
                        }

I take it your don't use if (!Page.IsPostback()) in your onload.
After you clicked the button, the onload resets/refills the dropdown. Then in the onclick you are trying to access the selecteditem, but since the ddl got repopulated there is no selecteditem. (or something along those lines)

Either use viewstate to make sure there is a selected item, or use appropriate if not ispostback code in your onload
