How to keep data stored in generic List<T> available during all processes at the same page.

I need to Save selected items in generic List<T> . and keep it until selecting all items needed. Then by pressing the second button "show search results" .
My problem was when I press the second pagination page number, I lose the selected items in previous page "the List<T> is reset".
Could anyone help me please to keep these selected items accumulated to the List<T> until I finish all items I need to select from all available pages.

sounds to me like every time you page your'e doing a post-back, loosing everything you've selected you're options are as follows

leverage ajax and store selected items in javascript object between page changes
save the (best, but a pain)

create a viewstate to preserve data between postbacks (good and normal for webforms)

save data to a cookie between postbacks (worst, and most painful)

hope that helps, if i cared i'd go with option one, if this thing just has to work i'd go the view state way

thank u Pawel. I had use ViewState. it was very helpful.
namespace myGoogleLike_webapp
{
    // View state example
    public partial class viewStateExample : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        salesDataContext db = new salesDataContext();
        string mySession = "";
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            mySession = (string)ViewState["mySes"];
            Response.Write((string)ViewState["mySes"]);
        }

        protected void search_Button_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            BindData();
        }

        protected void GridView1_PageIndexChanging(object sender, GridViewPageEventArgs e)
        {
            GridView1.PageIndex = e.NewPageIndex;
            BindData();
        }
        private void BindData()
        {
            string myString = mySearch_TextBox.Text.Trim();

            var myProducts = (from mySection in db.Products
                              where mySection.Name.Contains(myString)
                              select mySection).ToList();

            if ((myProducts != null) && (myProducts.Count() > 0))
            {
                GridView1.DataSource = myProducts;
                GridView1.DataBind();

                if (chk != null & chk.Checked)
                {
                    string mylblProductID = ((Label)gridViewRow.FindControl("lblProductID")).Text;
                    Boolean isExist = false;
                    if (mySession != null)
                    {
                        isExist = false;

                                break;
                            }
                        }
                        chk.Checked = false;
                        if (isExist == false)
                        {
                            mySession += " " + mylblProductID;
                            gridViewRow.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Orange;
