Persistent values in c#.NET

Hi,

I am trying to implement a page where, when you press a button, the value of an object field changes persistently.  For some reason, it does not do so now.  I have a feeling I'm missing something obvious.  

On the page, the object Test gets instantiated. The default value for the field mystring is "Init".  When the user presses the first button, the value gets updated to "new string". When the user presses the second button, the value reverts back to the default, which is NOT what I want to happen.  The value should stay the same.  What am I doing wrong?

Here's the code:

public class Test
{
    public string mystring = "Init";
}

public partial class TestPage : System.Web.UI.Page
{

    Test myTest=new Test();

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
    }

    public void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       myTest.mystring="new string";
        Label1.Text = myTest.mystring;
    }

    public void Button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Label1.Text = myTest.mystring;
    }
}

The reason why the string reverts to the original value is because all objects in ASP.Net Webapplication is destroyed once the page is created. Please see this link for more details

So as a work around you can store the class in viewState then retrieve that value upon page load to intialize the class again.

Please see the below code:  


 [Serializable]
    public class Test
    {
        public string mystring = "Init";
    }

   public partial class TestPage : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        Test myTest;

        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (!IsPostBack)
            {
                myTest = new Test();
                ViewState["test"] = myTest;
            }
            else
            {
                myTest = (Test)ViewState["test"];
            }
        }
        public void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
           myTest.mystring = "new string";
           Label1.Text = myTest.mystring;
        }

        public void Button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            Label1.Text = myTest.mystring;
        }
    }
