PersonalizationProvider.SavePersonalizationState Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Saves personalization data to a data store.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)

public virtual void SavePersonalizationState (
	PersonalizationState state
public void SavePersonalizationState (
	PersonalizationState state
public function SavePersonalizationState (
	state : PersonalizationState



A PersonalizationState containing personalization data to be saved.

Exception typeCondition


state is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The state object being saved has a different type from the state object that was returned by the LoadPersonalizationState method.

This method is the main entry point used by the WebPartPersonalization class to save personalization data.

The default implementation of this method uses the methods of an internal implementation of PersonalizationState to pack personalization data into a byte array. If the results of this packing create an empty byte array (because property extraction resulted in no personalization data), the default implementation calls the ResetPersonalizationBlob method. Otherwise, the default implementation calls the SavePersonalizationBlob method.
