HasChildViewState Property

Control.HasChildViewState Property


Gets a value indicating whether the current server control's child controls have any saved view-state settings.

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

protected bool HasChildViewState { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if any child controls have saved view state information; otherwise, false.

You can avoid unnecessary calls to the ClearChildViewState method by using this property to verify that any child controls of the server control are storing view-state information.

Legacy Code Example

public override void DataBind() 
   // Reset the control's state.
   // Check for HasChildViewState to avoid unnecessary calls to ClearChildViewState.
   if (HasChildViewState)
   ChildControlsCreated = true;
   if (!IsTrackingViewState)
