Alos ASCX control includes button if you click button you can add some value to database but ASCX disappear. i think that it is reloaded. How can i solve it? i loaded ascx control if i click tab control. i have a button on ASCX. i clicked button ASCX disapper..
 protected void ASPxPageControl1_ActiveTabChanged(object source, DevExpress.Web.ASPxTabControl.TabControlEventArgs e)
        {

          if (ASPxPageControl1.ActiveTabPage.Name == "Ali Sp. Reqs")
                PhAliSpReqs.Controls.Add(UserControlHelper.LoadControl(this.Page, "~/EngWebUserControl/AliSpReqs.ascx"));
      else if (ASPxPageControl1.ActiveTabPage.Name == "Test")
                PhTest.Controls.Add(UserControlHelper.LoadControl(this.Page, "~/EngWebUserControl/Test.ascx"));

Since u r loading the controls Runtime , u need to save the viewstate of ur controls during postbacks.
I am also doing similar thing in my website.

Here is a sample how to save the state of ur runtime controls. (it is the same with userctrls too)

without  "protected override void LoadViewState(object savedState)" ur runtime controls are likely to be lost during postbacks.


**** c# ***

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        if (!IsPostBack)
            CreateCtrls();

    }
    private void CreateCtrls()
    {
        DropDownList ddl1 = new DropDownList();
        ddl1.ID = "ddl1";
        ddl1.Items.Add("asdf0");
        ddl1.Items.Add("asdf1");
        ddl1.Items.Add("asdf2");
        ddl1.Items.Add("asdf3");
        pnl.Controls.Add(ddl1);
        DropDownList ddl2 = new DropDownList();
        ddl2.ID = "ddl2";
        ddl2.Items.Add("lkjh0");
        ddl2.Items.Add("lkjh1");
        ddl2.Items.Add("lkjh2");
        ddl2.Items.Add("lkjh3");
        pnl.Controls.Add(ddl2);

        ViewState["ControlsAdded2"] = true;//This is also imp to save and load viewstates
    }
    protected void btn1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

    }
    protected override void LoadViewState(object savedState)
    {
        base.LoadViewState(savedState);
        if (ViewState["controlsadded1"] == null)
        {
            CreateCtrls();
        }
    }

**** aspx ***
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
    <asp:Panel runat="server" ID="pnl">
        </asp:Panel>
        <asp:Button runat="server" ID="btn1" onclick="btn1_Click" Text="click me" />
    </div>
    </form>
</body>

- When you click tab, it cause the page do asyn post back to the server, run Page_Load and run the ASPxPageControl1_ActiveTabChanged, then your ascx is added to the page, but when you click button on ascx, the page do asyn post back to the server, run Page_Load, but this time ASPxPageControl1_ActiveTabChanged will not fired.
- You need to check and load your ascx again when you click button, i advise you do it on OnInit event.

Hi,

I am trying to explain you the reason behind along with thaytu888888 statement.

 The main reason is that  on button click your whole that tab panel loads again. So the dynamically loaded ascx controls vanish out on button click. So it would be nice if you can load those user controls again in OnInit.

VSS

Hi,

See same type example of loading controls dynamically at link:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/Visual_CSharp/Q_26383559.html

but not exactly as yours.
