Adding a persistable TextBox property

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Web Controls' started by Jason Barnett, Aug 26, 2010.

  1. I've developed a control that inherits from TextBox. I created a property
    that gets rendered into a HiddenField, which is altered by javascript at run
    time. The HiddenField is initialized during OnInt, and added to the controls
    collection during CreateChildControls. Also, I've overridden the
    LoadPostData method to retrieve the property value based on the HiddenField's
    ID.

    All works well, but I'm concerned about the last step (retrieving the value
    during LoadPostData). I'm curious if there is a way to get ASP.NET will
    restore the ViewState of the child control for me. Is anyone aware of a
    better way to handle this?
