Hi,
I have a public variable which i want it to be updated when user access the page first time, and i use "If Not Page.IsPostBack" to set it. This works fine.

However, i still want to retain this variabe on postback,,,,how can i do it? The public variable always reverted to it's default value that i set during declaration on postback.

See code below for the details.
Partial Class _Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
 
    Public strTest As String = "This is default setting"
 
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
 
        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            strTest = "First time login"
            Response.Write(strTest)
        Else
            Response.Write(strTest)   'I can NOT get the variable to be updated with "First time login" on postback
        End If
    End Sub
