Report Viewer error message - "ASP.NET ViewState has been disabled..." RRS feed

  • Question

  • User694481106 posted
    I've created a new page with a ReportViewer control on it. When the page loads, I'm getting the following error:

    "ASP.NET ViewState has been disabled. The Report Viewer control requires that ViewState be enabled."

    I've set ViewState = true for the entire page and each control, to no avail.

    Any ideas? Why would the ViewState become disabled when this page loads? Maybe something to do with security and the ReportViewer control?

    I experienced the same problem. My problem was related to the master page that I am using, the view state on my master page was set to false. It works fine after I enabled it.

    In my master page, I change the "Enable View State" of my content place holder to true. This resolves the problem I have.

    Be carefull to encapsulate your  control in a <form> tag ...

    That was my mistake.
    By default enableview state is true.

    Also, don't forget to add <TT>runat="server"</TT> ( <TT><form runat="server"></TT> )

    It took me a couple minutes before I smacked my forehead and realized I'd forgotten that little piece.

    This error is weired. I had the same problem and now I fixed it and figured it out that if there is report viewer without html codes, than this error ocurred. Put you report viewer control inside html code like below.

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div align="left">
    <rsweb:ReportViewer ID="ReportViewer1" runat="server" Font-Names="Verdana" 
        Font-Size="8pt" Height="530px" Width="795px" 
        <LocalReport ReportPath="Reports\Report1.rdlc">
