ViewStateService Class

Enables the preservation and accessing of all data values associated with the user interaction components of a workflow application, at a particular point in time in the running of a workflow application. A ViewStateService stores view states for model items.

  NameDescription
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodRemoveViewStateWhen implemented in a derived class, removes the view state represented by the specified key and associated with the specified model item.
Public methodRetrieveAllViewStateReturns an aspect of the view state that was stored for the specified modelItem, matching the specified key.
Public methodRetrieveViewStateRetrieves an aspect of the view state for the specified modelItem, matching the specified key.
Public methodStoreViewStateStores an aspect of the view state for the specified modelItem, matching the specified key.
Public methodStoreViewStateWithUndoWhen implemented in a derived class, records the current setting of the item represented by the specified key so that it is available for an undo operation. The item represented by the specified key is then stored in the view state of the specified model item.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

  NameDescription
Public eventUndoableViewStateChangedWhen implemented in a derived class, declares an event that signals that a change has been made to the control’s undoable view state.
Public eventViewStateChangedWhen implemented in a derived class, declares an event that signals that a change has been made to the control’s view state.

This is useful so that the state can keep being retrieved when control of the application goes and comes with postbacks. ViewStateService is an abstract class. Derived classes must store view states when StoreViewState is called, and retrieve them when RetrieveViewState is called.
