Gets or sets a value indicating whether the page maintains its view state, and the view state of any server controls it contains, when the current page request ends.
Assembly: System.Web (in System.Web.dll)
[<BrowsableAttribute(false)>] abstract EnableViewState : bool with get, set [<BrowsableAttribute(false)>] override EnableViewState : bool with get, set
Property ValueType: System.Boolean
true if the page maintains its view state; otherwise, false. The default is true.
For information about why you might want to disable view state, see Control.EnableViewState.
Even if is false, the page might contain a hidden view state field that is used by ASP.NET to detect a postback.
The following code example sets the property to false when the page is loaded. This disables view state for the Page object, meaning that neither view-state information for the page nor any controls contained by the page are saved.
This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
