Invalid postback or callback argument. error on DetailsView control update event

Hi,

I'm hoping you will be able to help me.  I have a detail view as part of a user administration system.  It takes the username as a query string and retrieves and binds a detailview to a MembershipUser when I edit the view and then click the update button, I get the following message:

Invalid postback or callback argument.  Event validation is enabled using <pages enableEventValidation="true"/> in configuration or <%@ Page EnableEventValidation="true" %> in a page.  For security purposes, this feature verifies that arguments to postback or callback events originate from the server control that originally rendered them.  If the data is valid and expected, use the ClientScriptManager.RegisterForEventValidation method in order to register the postback or callback data for validation.

I don't understand why this is happening.  I've attached the code below
<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="4guys.master"  Inherits="AdminBasePage" %>
 
<script runat="server">
	string username;
 
	    int totalUsers;
	MembershipUser user;
	
	private void Page_Load()
	{
		username = Request.QueryString["username"];
		if (username == null || username == "")
		{
			Response.Redirect("../users.aspx"+this.InitialiseSessionParameters());
		}
		//user = Membership.GetUser(username);
   user = this.AdminMembershipProvider.GetUser(username,false);
        System.Collections.Generic.List<MembershipUser> userlist = new System.Collections.Generic.List<MembershipUser>();
        userlist.Add(user);
		UserInfo.DataSource =userlist ;
		UserInfo.DataBind();
       		
		UserUpdateMessage.Text = user.UserName;
		
	}
 
    protected void UserInfo_ModeChanging(object sender,DetailsViewModeEventArgs e)
    {
        UserInfo.ChangeMode(DetailsViewMode.Edit);
        UserInfo.DataBind();
    }
 
	protected void UserInfo_ItemUpdating(object sender, DetailsViewUpdateEventArgs e)
	{
		//Need to handle the update manually because MembershipUser does not have a
		//parameterless constructor  
 
	    user.Email = (string)e.NewValues[0];
		user.Comment = (string)e.NewValues[1];
		user.IsApproved = (bool)e.NewValues[2];
 
		try
		{
			// Update user info:
			Membership.UpdateUser(user);
			
			// Update user roles:
			UpdateUserRoles();
			
			UserUpdateMessage.Text = "Update Successful.";
			
			e.Cancel = true;
			UserInfo.ChangeMode(DetailsViewMode.ReadOnly);
		}
		catch (Exception ex)
		{
			UserUpdateMessage.Text = "Update Failed: " + ex.Message;
 
			e.Cancel = true;
			UserInfo.ChangeMode(DetailsViewMode.ReadOnly);
			
		}
	}
 
	private void Page_PreRender()
	{
        
		// Load the User Roles into checkboxes.
		UserRoles.DataSource = this.AdminRoleProvider.GetAllRoles();
		UserRoles.DataBind();
 
		// Disable checkboxes if appropriate:
		if (UserInfo.CurrentMode != DetailsViewMode.Edit)
		{
			foreach (ListItem checkbox in UserRoles.Items)
			{
				checkbox.Enabled = false;
			}
		}
		
		// Bind these checkboxes to the User's own set of roles.
        string[] userRoles = this.AdminRoleProvider.GetRolesForUser(username);
		foreach (string role in userRoles)
		{
			ListItem checkbox = UserRoles.Items.FindByValue(role);
			checkbox.Selected = true;
		}
	}
	
	private void UpdateUserRoles()
	{
		foreach (ListItem rolebox in UserRoles.Items)
		{
			if (rolebox.Selected)
			{
                if (!AdminRoleProvider.IsUserInRole(username, rolebox.Text))
				{
                    string[] usernames = { username.ToString()};
 
                    string[] roles = { rolebox.Text };
                    this.AdminRoleProvider.AddUsersToRoles(usernames, roles);
				}
			}
			else
			{
                if (this.AdminRoleProvider.IsUserInRole(username, rolebox.Text))
				{
                    string[] usernames = { username.ToString() };
 
                    string[] roles = { rolebox.Text };
                    this.AdminRoleProvider.RemoveUsersFromRoles(usernames, roles);
				}
			}
		}
	}
 
    protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer)
    {
        ClientScript.RegisterForEventValidation(UserInfo.UniqueID);
        base.Render(writer);
    }   
	private void DeleteUser(object sender, EventArgs e)
	{
		////Membership.DeleteUser(username, false); // DC: My apps will NEVER delete the related data.
		//Membership.DeleteUser(username, true); // DC: except during testing, of course!
        this.AdminMembershipProvider.DeleteUser(username, true); 
		Response.Redirect("../users.aspx"+this.InitialiseSessionParameters());
	}
 
	private void UnlockUser(object sender, EventArgs e)
	{
		// Dan Clem, added 5/30/2007 post-live upgrade.
		
		// Unlock the user.

change the following line
UserInfo.DataBind();


to
if (!Page.IsPostBack)
  UserInfo.DataBind();


I hopw this will help.

If it solves your problem, you can enlarge the if block
