    I build a control,there has a property name JsDirectory
    it's default value is "/g_Scripts/"
    when using this control in a web form,I change the
    JsDirectory in the Property designer
    to "../g_scripts/",and then it runs well at once,but when
    I postback,and try to using this property inside a button
    click event,I found the prpoerty value is back to the
    default one!!!
    is this one bug of framework 1.0.3705?
    but values it will keep and runs well every times,any
    suggestion? many thanks....

    Hi matt.

    i think your control works correctly.
    because post back process reload your web form page.

    any elements of html form has a default values when the page is reloaded.
    post back is same.

    any web form controls in .net base class library, use a ViewState object to keep there values.
    so your control have to use ViewState object too.

    sample code is here:

    public string JsDirectory {
    get {
    if (Page.EnableViewState) {
    if ((Page.ViewState["jsdir"] != null) && (Page.ViewState["jsdir"] != string.Empty))
    return Page.ViewState["jsdir"];
    return m_strJsDir;
    return m_strJsDir;
    }//end of get

    set {
    if (Page.EnableViewState) {
    if (Page.ViewState["jsdir"] != null)
    Page.ViewState["jsdir"] = value;
    Page.ViewState.Add("jsdir", value);
    m_strJsDir = value;
    m_strJsDir = value;
    }//end of property JsDirectory

    private void Class1() {
    if (Page.EnableViewState) {
    if ((Page.ViewState["jsdir"] != null) && (Page.ViewState["jsdir"] != string.Empty))
    m_strJsDir = Page.ViewState["jsdir"];
    m_strJsDir = "/g_Scripts/";
    m_strJsDir = "/g_Scripts/";
    }//end of constructor

    maybe you misunderstand what I mean...
    If I use code like the one you describe above,it works correctly,but If
    I use the Property Window to change the property JsDirectory,and run
    it,it will work when not postback,but error when postback!!!
    I don't know how to explain,some kinds of characters in the property
    Window won't keep it's value!!!
