Nested user controls losing Viewstate

Hi Experts

I have a user control (a drop down control) nested within another user control (a gridview) and am using Viewstate to keep track of the gridview SortDirection (ASC or DESC). This works fine, until the selected index is changed in the nested control and then that control needs to read this value from ViewState. At this point however the value is Nothing.

Is there a way of persisting Viewstate across nested user controls?

Thanks

Stewart

Try to use HttpContext.Current.ViewState, instead of simple ViewState

'VIewState' is not a member of System.Web.HttpContext so Visual Studio tells me.

Would I be better off just storing this value in the Session?

Sorry my miss, yes you can use System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Session. But you should remember that Session variable will be available on all pages and user controls.

Even if we can't include all the files in the base image, we can sometimes include some of the larger files that we would otherwise have to download, and we can also sometimes remove the most time-consuming steps. This can help a lot with reducing deployment times.
