Browser back button issue when ViewState stored in DB.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I implemented the solution of storing the ViewState in DB (since we were getting lots of Invalid & Corrupt Viewstate errors on our site daily) as given in the following website:http://weblogs.asp.net/adweigert/archive/2004/03/09/86628.aspxThe solution was implemented in one of the aspx pages on our site that behaves like a wizard (not using the wizard control though). After starting to store the viewstate in DB, the Invalid ViewState errors were eliminated completely, but I am now facing the following problem:1) User selects radiobutton1 of the two radiobutton choices on Page 2 of the wizard, a postback happens which displays some extra information on the page based on the selection. Now the user hits the next button on the page that also does a postback & displays Page 3.2) On Page 3, user hits the "back button" of the browser instead of the "previous page" button that is available on that page.3) This displays Page 2 from cache in original state(without any selections made). When user now selects radiobutton2, a postback is supposed to happen, but it does not. User then clicks "next" button on Page 2 (a postback does happen here however), & Page 3 is displayed, but it still thinks that radiobutton1 was selected (the original selection that was made in step1) on the previous page & hence displays information accordingly.I am assumi

Web Form breaks after using the browser's back button

I have a web form that allows a user to put some data in a textbox and click a button to do a search on that data.  It opens up a Sql Server Reporting Services report using the data they entered on the previous page.  If they use the browser's back button to go back and enter some different criteria to search on, the buttons don't work anymore. Any ideas or suggestions on what would cause this?   Thanks!

Viewstate issue when calling button click event from Javascript

I have a javascript that asks a confirmation on search click. If the user has made some changes to the data in grid (gridview) on click of Search, a confirmation is asked to Save or Continue Search. If Yes, Save the records by invoking Save click from javascript. If No, Search click is invoked. While Search click happens correctly, Save click results in an error which reads like this..  "Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster. " I know the Viewstate is what causing the problem, where the control is not loaded but script is trying to invoke it's click event. Any help is appreciated. At the end of the day, all i need is to invoke Save click from javascript.   -- Viswanth VG  

Mobile redirect and the browser back button

Has anyone here ever successfully constructed a two-page mobile website with VB, one page for input and one page for displaying results?  If so, how do you call the results page and can you return to the input page using the back button on your mobile browser?  I have no problem creating such a website for regular browsers, but I simply cannot construct one for the iPhone or the Droid ... you can't return to the first page via the backbutton and still have it be functional; all you have is the graphics.  There is no load event for the page you're returning to.  It seems like mobile browsers don't handle server-side redirects properly.  If you open a new page via a hyperlink, you can return to the page you were on and it will still be functional; not so following a redirect to another page on your site. I've experimented endlessly with cache settings, redirect parameters, and the pagestatepersister class to no avail.  I need to know if I'm on a futile quest.  Can anyone offer confirmation for can do/can't do?

Issue in Infopath 2007 browser form - cascading dropdown using owssvr.dll filter view


Referring the below link, I created a cascading dropdown. The parent dropdown has sharepoint list as datasource and the child dropdown has xml datasource that points to owssvr.dll filter view. The cascading drop down works fine in preview but throws error after publishing as admin approved form - "form cannot run the specified query" exception when trying to execute xml datasource i.e., when a value is selected in parent dropdown. The security is 'Full Trust". In the event viewer the error message states "401 unauthorised" for the user a/c. the xml data source is an approved udcx file and in central admin, have enabled cross domain for infopath service. I have tried different solution provided in tech forums but issue still exists. Not sure whether Im missing something. Can someone guide me in fixing this issue?
