I need to input nested data (data entry) and i am using datalists for the same. The details include many details and I am managing the same using controls for each in information.
The parent datalist can have max 20 rows with 7 rows in each child datalist. I tried to bind the datalists with max rows, due to which the rendered page size was almost 12MB and it took more than 2 mins to load.
Alternative to this, I put the parent datalist in updatepanel and bound it to one row initially. Onclick of add button, i implemented an asynchronous postback to add new row to the parent datalist datasource and update the updatepanel to display the datalist. The new row is displayed properly in datalist, however it gets reset to original datalist after some seconds.
I have no clue about the reason for it. Please help me to resolve the above issue.
