    HrtgSkr, here is the situation. All web pages have header and footers which
    are user controls. Iam loading
    these controls in base class of my page using LoadControl. Will the state of
    these dynamically loaded control
    preserved between transitions in pages. For e.g Will the tree control in the
    header preserver its state when i
    navigate to a different web-pages?

    I hope iam clear now.
    Appreciate your response.

    The values in the usercontrol properties will not persist. I have
    noticed, that the webcontrols inside my usercontrol hold their viewstate
    as long as I stay on the parent page. My usercontrol isn't loaded with
    loadcontrol, though, so even though it's not visible, it's still "an

    If you're using serialization, you can store the information you need
    from the usercontrol in ViewState. There's many ways to preserve the
    values. I've just learned through trial and error to start simple, then
    build on it, setting breakpoints and using Autos and Watch tabs to see
    the state of my variables as I move through the pages.

    Do you need to load them dynamically? Can you just modify them to
    adjust for each parent page?
