Returns an object that is used by the Web page to maintain the control and view states.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
The PageStatePersister property uses the method to return the object, derived from the PageStatePersister class, that forms and extracts the combined control and view states for the page. If there is no derived page adapter attached to the page, a HiddenFieldPageStatePersister object is used to maintain the state in a hidden field on the page.

When you inherit from the PageAdapter class, you can override the method to return another derived page state persister if it is not feasible to maintain the combined state in a hidden field (for example, because of limited resources).
