Control.ViewStateIgnoresCase Property


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

Gets a value that indicates whether the StateBag object is case-insensitive.

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

protected virtual bool ViewStateIgnoresCase { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the StateBag instance is case-insensitive; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Override this method if you create a custom server control that saves its view state without taking case into account. When you do so multiple objects with the same key, but with different casing, can be stored in the StateBag associated with the ViewState property.

The following example demonstrates how to override the ViewStateIgnoresCase property to return true.

// Override the ViewStateIgnoresCase property to allow the same
// entries with different casing to be stored in the control's
// ViewState property.
protected override bool ViewStateIgnoresCase
                return true;
