Page::EnableViewState Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the page maintains its view state, and the view state of any server controls it contains, when the current page request ends.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public:
virtual property bool EnableViewState {
	bool get () override;
	void set (bool value) override;
}
<asp:Page EnableViewState="True|False" />

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if the page maintains its view state; otherwise, false. The default is true.

For information about why you might want to disable view state, see Control::EnableViewState.

Even if EnableViewState is false, the page might contain a hidden view state field that is used by ASP.NET to detect a postback.

The following code example sets the EnableViewState property to false when the page is loaded. This disables view state for the Page object, meaning that neither view-state information for the page nor any controls contained by the page are saved.

Security noteSecurity Note

This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
