Rebind Dataview...

On my web page I have a DataView that is displaying results of a SQL table.  I've done some form validation to check if the user entered text into a textbox.  If the user forgets to enter text in the textbox and clicks the Submit Request button, a Label displays an alert telling them to enter text.  The problem is, is when the user clicks the Submit Request button, the page reloads and my DataView disappears, I would guess because there is no data for the DataView to display.

Is there a way for me to keep the values of the DataView when the Submit Request button is clicked and the page is refreshed?

Please refer this code: Check you are binding your DataView like this,

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    if (!this.IsPostBack) {
          Inventory = new busInventory();
          // *** Get Item list into a table TItemList
          Inventory.GetItemList("sku,descript");
          // *** Do standard   for the list
          this.txtSearchSku.DataSource = Inventory.DataSet.Tables["TItemList"];
          this.txtSearchSku.DataBind();                                                                 //Bind your DataView in this loop
    }
}
