I have a webpage that contains a very simple user control and an html based treeview contained within an ASP.net label control.   The treeview is very complex and takes a long time to render from ViewState upon loading the page after postback.   I want to update the simple user control which requires a roundtrip to the server.   This update should take less than a second but because it has to reload the treeview from viewstate it takes 3-4 seconds.  Is it possible to update the usercontrol without posting back the parent page.  I don't want to make any changes to the parent page outside of the user control.

Thanks

if it is a simple html based tree view, can't you place its HTML in a javascript file, and store it externally? this way it wont get added to the viewstate and the page will load and process faster.

does this help?

The Tree View is a heirarchy that is pulled from a database.  It is generated at run time on the initial page load.  I just know that it will not have changed when the User Control is updated.   What I have done now is disabled viewstate for the treeview and just recreate the html on each postback.  It requires a few more database hits but it is still faster than processing viewstate.   If I can't find a way to do a partial postback then this solution will work for me.

Just a small idea, why don't you use frame ?
<frameset rows="68,*,21" framespacing="0" border="0" frameborder="0">
      <frameset cols="*,81%">
      <frame name="contents" target="main" src="treeview_here.aspx" frameBorder="no" scrolling="no">
      <frame name="main" src="usercontrol_loadhere.aspx" target="_self">
      </frameset>

I think frames would be an ok solution.  What I actually did was disabled ViewState and recreated the tree on every postback.  It turned out that ViewState was so large and slow that rehitting the database was faster.  It is still not super fast but noticable improvement nonetheless.
