WebPart.SetPersonalizationDirty Method (Control)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Sets a flag indicating that personalization data has changed for the specified server control that resides in a WebPartZoneBase zone.

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

public static void SetPersonalizationDirty(
	Control control


Type: System.Web.UI.Control

The Control for which the personalization data has changed.

Exception Condition

The object in the control parameter is null.


The control is not associated with a page.


The page associated with the control does not have a WebPartManager.


The control derives from WebPart. Controls that derive from WebPart should use the protected SetPersonalizationDirty method instead.

The WebPart.SetPersonalizationDirty method has the same purpose as the WebPart.SetPersonalizationDirty() method, which is to set a flag indicating that control state data has been changed (personalized) on a server control during an HTTP GET request. The difference between these methods is that the WebPart.SetPersonalizationDirty method is used for server controls that do not inherit from the WebPart class, but are placed within WebPartZoneBase zones to participate in Web Parts applications.
