Here I have explained with 2 scenarios.

1. The FindControl method finds controls in the current naming container. If the control you are looking for is inside another control (typically, inside a template), you must first get a reference to the container and then search the container to find the control you want to get.

2. May be you reached the target page via redirect or transfer method. Before accessing "PreviousPage", plz validate by the following code

if(PreviousPage != null)
    if(PreviousPage.IsCrossPagePostBack == true)

Can you return .net web controls in a .net page from a web service?
I've got a problem with a project. I've got to compile an entire .net page and return it as part of a Web Service for display.

State management in cross page posting
Hi, I have a main form. From this form I "server.transfer" to another form to pick up data from a search list which is used to fill fields in the main form. But when I come back to the main form, the fields that had been filled before calling the search form are cleaned out.

Can a .NET 1.1 page execute in a .NET 2.0 web site?
I've got a ASP.NET 1.1 web site to which I would like to add some ASP.NET 2.0 web pages. Could I just change the web site to point to the 2.0 .NET version and still have the .NET 1.1 web pages work so that both versions are in the same web site? Have you some of you approached this? Thanks. The official answer is maybe It's not officially supported, but most ASP.NET 1.1 pages will run fine under ASP.NET 2.0.  Officially you should run the upgrade wizard on your 1.1 pages. This is a  pretty good blog entry.      JamesMy Blog:

Posting filepath in file upload control in .NET to the next page and uploading the file from second page
In our application (using C# .NET) there is a form with file upload options. After filling up the form details, the summary of the details need to be shown in the next page before committing the information into the database. Right now, Server.Control is used to transfer the contents to the next page and the form details are retrieved using Request.Form["control id"].

Both C# ASPX pages and VB.NET ASPX in single VB.NET Web Applcation Template
Hi.. Is it possible to have both c# pages and VB pages in same Webapplication, what i chose is VB.NET Web application Template. With Thanks, Jaya.... I don't see why you couldn't, but for the sake of consistency I don't know why you would want to do this. When you choose a C# or VB.NET application template(I'm assuming you're using VS or WebMatrix), it simply creates a .aspx file that includes a page directive that specifies the page language. If you created a C# template but want to use VB.Net instead, you need to go from: <%@ Page Language="C#" .... to...

The IsCrossPagePostBack field and the IsPostBack field both return false, and PreviousPage.FindControl returns null for all controls. Does anyone have any idea on how I can implement this functionality (post masterpage f...
