    I am curious, does anyone know how the visual studio saves the
    properties you set at design time? I would like to do this at runtime
    so i'm curious.

    A note: I had a post eariler about setting a sub classed textbox user
    defined property at runtime. I was losing the value on postback. I
    subituted the variable with a call to the viewstate with the ID of the
    textbox and the name of the property together. That worked, but i am
    concerned about the the size of the viewstate. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    the design time properties are stored in the source code (aspx page). look
    at an <asp:> control, and you will see all the set properties as attribute

    you are correct, viewstate blot is a performance problem with apps.
    slap a grid on your page, and viewstate is 10-100k. store as little as
    possible in viewstate.
