Session[keys.Current.ToString()]));

do you think i can change from Session to ViewState?
 
when i do Session[keys.Current.ToString()] then its loading my class and class has 53 public properties

but i dont want to load the class into session keys, is there a way i can change to ViewState or is there a way to have different approach?

protected void dg_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        IEnumerator keys = Session.Contents.GetEnumerator();
       
        if (Session.Count > 0)
        {
            while (keys.MoveNext())
            {
                string value = Convert.ToString((Session[keys.Current.ToString()]));
                if (value.Substring(0, 1) == dg.MasterTableView.CurrentPageIndex.ToString())
                {
                    foreach (GridDataItem dataItem in dg.MasterTableView.Items)
                    {
                        CheckBox box = (CheckBox)dataItem["TemplateColumn"].FindControl("checkBox1");
                        string clientID = value.Substring(2, (value.Length - 7));
                        if (box.ClientID == clientID)
                        {
                            box.Checked = true;
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }

Here is one way:

Adding a CheckBox column to your DataGrid

if possible create a class with keys are the the properties and assigin values to this class and set this class as the viewstate.

You need to be careful what you store in ViewState.  It is carried along with the page in a UTF-16, Base-64 encoded text.  It is meant for light-weight storage, as the page response goes down drastically when more and more things are stored in the ViewState.

is there a way i can use dictionary instead of session? i haven't use dictionary before so i have not clue how i can replace to it.

actually, i have a data grid with check box so I'm storing how many check box user have checked.

Bob LearnedCommented:
Sure, you could use Dictionary, but if you need to persist it, then it would need to be stored in the Session.

Islam1424Author Commented:
you mean only session have to use here?, no other way?

Bob LearnedCommented:
Is your page going to post back?  If not, then you can use the Dictionary without worry.  But, if it does, then you need to store the Dictionary in the Session:

    Session["CheckedList"] = dictionaryChecked;

You only need this For block:

                    foreach (GridDataItem dataItem in dg.MasterTableView.Items)
                    {
                        CheckBox box = (CheckBox)dataItem["TemplateColumn"].FindControl("checkBox1");
                        string clientID = value.Substring(2, (value.Length - 7));
                        if (box.ClientID == clientID)
                        {
                            box.Checked = true;
                            _dictionary.Add(clientID, box);
                        }
                    }

I would suggest adding a column for the check boxes to the DataTable, instead of what you have been trying to do.
