uncheck checkbox

I get this error when I uncheck by checkbox in gridview.

Failed to load viewstate.  The control tree into which viewstate is being loaded must match the control tree that was used to save viewstate during the previous request.  For example, when adding controls dynamically, the controls added during a post-back must match the type and position of the controls added during the initial request.
Watch Question

can you please post the code?


I don't know which one to post? checkchanged handler maybe?
yes ..


This is my checkchanged event and works great when user check the check box, but when unchecked gives me viewstate problem, do you know why it is doing that? I need to figure it out asap, I on deadline here..

 Dim ck1 As CheckBox = CType(sender, CheckBox)
        If ck1.Checked = True Then
            Dim row As GridViewRow = CType(ck1.Parent.Parent, GridViewRow)
            Dim currentrow As Integer = row.RowIndex

            If Decimal.Parse("0" & row.Cells(2).Text) <> 21 Then

                Session("code_id") = Decimal.Parse("0" & row.Cells(2).Text)
                GridView1.SelectedIndex = currentrow
                GridView1.EditIndex = currentrow
                           End If
        End If

        GridView1.EditIndex = -1
    End Sub

Thank you I will give your points asap, but you got a look at my new posting called this is strange , it is related to that and it is very strange thing happening when I set boundfield to visible= false, it doesn't create a sessionid for that datafield...
