    As we know ViewState is the statemanagment technique, which used to persist the control values between postback for same page, so if you want to keep your value alive after postback then you can use it.
    just make the enable viewstate.
    see below code snippet

    //enable view state for label
    <asp:Label ID="lbltest" runat="server" Text="this is test label" EnableViewState="true" />

    hope it helps

    EnableViewState is a feature which help us to save or persist the value of the controls during the postback or not. If you want to persist the value set it true otherwise false.

    whenever you are doing some page navigations Enableviewstate will save the data of the present controls if it is true otherwise your data will be lost.

    Hi srinivas kotha,

    By default ViewState data is not secure to make it secure we have a property called as EnableViewStateMac has to be "TRUE". If it's true then data become secure otherwise not secure. That's the reason we are using EnableViewStateMac property.

    Hope this will help you to resolve the issue.

    Hai Srinivas Kotha,
    Automatic persistent of form data during the post back implementation is called as View State.
    As the Web is stateless so it doesn't recognize anything when any post-back happens. each time a new page gets created with all it's events.
    Soto retain the original content, we have the feature called EnableViewState at the page level in which we an retain the original content of the page and regenerate the whole page and populate the same content.
    Internally it gets the check-sum of all the controls and then create a BASE 64 encrypted content and place in the same page so that when the page gets loaded again after the post back, again it check and based on the content renders the page contents.
    Hope it will be helpful to you.

    is the property used to set or reet the option for your View State in the page,.

    The VIew state is the property that preserver the values of the controls during the post back.

    for example a text back value does not clear when you do the post back.
