it's urgent. Can any one suggest me.

Here is my scenario

I have public property which contains some object. I'm saving that object in viewstate. When I use update panel and doing partial postback, the changes which I made to  my public property are not persisting in viewstate.

You could also use a session to save your object. i know it work with update panel.

//this is my property
private Dictionary<string, List<Event>> EventsDictionary
                              if (ViewState["EventsDictionary"] != null)
                                    return (Dictionary<string, List<Event>>)ViewState["EventsDictionary"];
                                    return null;
                              ViewState["EventsDictionary"] = value;

// this is my code which modifies  EventsDictionary object and keeping in viewstate

                              Dictionary<string, List<Event>> eventDictionary = EventsDictionary;
                              Dictionary<string, string[]> weekEvents = WeekEvents;
                              ScheduleManager.CopyDayEventsToAnotherDay(ref eventDictionary);// here I'm updating my EventDictionary object.
                              EventsDictionary = eventDictionary;
                              eventDictionary = null;

hummm... it work without the update panel?
If yes, make sure the update panel dont generate an error that block the update.
Also, i thnik the way the update panel work, it just update the controls that are inside of it. since the EventsDictionary is not inside of it (and i dont think it can), it is not persisted...
try to replace the ViewState["EventsDictionary"] with Session["EventsDictionary"]
