    [CLOSED] Hidden field problem


    I have a simple hidden field in my application:

    <ext:Hidden ID="someID" runat="server">
    It is located on a control that is not initially visible. I receive the following exception during the page initial load:

    General Error: 0 : Timestamp: 2008-12-10 14:49:35

    The exception is thrown only when StateProvider="PostBack". It is not thrown when StateProvider="None". (StateProvider="Cookie" is not working for some reason with AjaxEvents for us, but it's another story).

    Is there a way to get rid of that exception?

    I tried a few thing but could not get the exception. Can you post a simplified .aspx sample that demonstrates how to reproduce the problem? I'll try a few more things, but I think we're going to have to see exactly how you have things configured.

    Thanks for reporting the problem.

    Hi Geoffrey,

    I wasn't able to replicate it outside of our application (it is a bit complex with third party controls), but I have fixed the problem in your sources (Hidden.cs):

     public override object Value
                    return (string)this.ViewState["Value"] ?? "";
                    this.ViewState["Value"] = value != null ? value.ToString() : string.Empty;

    (BTW when I replaced all hidden fields with hidden labels, it worked fine too, but we prefer hidden fields for our purpose)

    It would be great having this fix in the official version.

    Hi Taduesz,

    I believe this problem might be related to the following bug fix, seehttp://forums.ext.net/showthread.php...=5397-5-1.aspx

    If you get a chance, please svn update and confirm if your code is now working correctly.

    Hope this helps.
