Examples

The following code example shows a custom server control calling the RegisterRequiresControlState method.

public class Sample : Control {
    private int currentIndex = 0;
   
    protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e) {
        Page.RegisterRequiresControlState(this);
        base.OnInit(e);
    }

    protected override object SaveControlState() {
        return currentIndex != 0 ? (object)currentIndex : null;
    }

    protected override void LoadControlState(object state) {
        if (state != null) {
            currentIndex = (int)state;
        }
    }
}
Class Sample
  Inherits Control
  
  Dim currentIndex As Integer
  
      Protected Overrides Sub OnInit(ByVal e As EventArgs)
          Page.RegisterRequiresControlState(Me)
          currentIndex = 0
          MyBase.OnInit(e)
      End Sub
  
      Protected Overrides Function SaveControlState() As Object
          If currentIndex <> 0 Then
              Return CType(currentIndex, Object)
          Else
              Return Nothing
          End If
      End Function
  
      Protected Overrides Sub LoadControlState(ByVal state As Object)
          If (state <> Nothing) Then
              currentIndex = CType(state, Integer)
          End If
      End Sub
  
End Class

Remarks

Custom server controls that use control state must call the RegisterRequiresControlState method on each request because registration for control state is not carried over from request to request during a postback event. It is recommended that registration occur in the Init event.
