why doesn't EnableViewState work


Mike D

This is becoming very painful to learn. I am going through a wrox
book and trying the code. My aspx pages continue to come back with my
selection highlighted. It looks like EnableViewState is not being set
to False.

What gives here I am in Chapter 4 and simple things are failing?


Here is the page.

i suggest strongly that if you are learning from scratch it would be worth
your while to start with the code behind model instead of the inline thing.
it's the new paradigm and their are several solid reasons for it.

What exactly is not working?
