SaveControlState Method

Menu.SaveControlState Method

This method supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Saves the state of the properties in the Menu control that need to be persisted.

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

protected internal override Object SaveControlState ()
protected Object SaveControlState ()
protected internal override function SaveControlState () : Object
Not applicable.

Return Value

An object that contains the state data for the control. If there have been no changes to the state, this method returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

This method is used to save the state of the properties in the Menu control that need to be persisted, even when the EnableViewState property is set to false. The SaveControlState method is concerned with state data that is essential for a control's operation (such as an index or keyword) and is separate from the control's view-state data.


This method is used primarily by control developers to extend the Menu control.
