Without much information to go on you can simply add EnableEventValidation="false" and whatever is causing this will be unable to cause it. However it decreases security in regards to automatic cross site scripting and SQL injection attempts depending on how things are set up. Also you would want to get to the root of the problem and not apply the band-aid I mentioned above. You will want to look at aspects such as are you posting to a page on a different URL Since it seems to be submitting login information I would not suggest the use of a GET based called using querystring paramters (?name=value&name=value).

This normally can come along when you use UpdatePanel, ajax component and dynamic control added to your page.

So when the page is posted back, the controls (dropdownlist, textboxes) within the UpdatePanel, or some specific part, has different built order and render back differently to the client, Ajax function failed as the after. That what could happen

So if you use, Update panel for that table, check carefully the order and client ID, and if the update Panel is unnecessary for this page (it can be very helpful in a lot of case, but some cases, well, we dont need it.

Hope this could give you some direction

If you have a control such as an ascx page where every u include this u must have enableEventValidation="false" . So where ever you are posting to the next page. For instance if i login from the master page and I am going to the profile.aspx page. then u must include this.

Yeah thanks for the remark,

The EventValidation is for checking and preventing JS injection, sometimes its really annoy so we disable them, but we better do it in such way it never raises. Sometimes you can see the source after and before postback the clientID of controls are different. This is because the auto generate mechanism of dot net on dynamic control, espcially in case of UpdatePanel. This will cause quite a lot of problem.

Glad you work it out, ^^

I think hakkekushou deserve some credit too. ^^
