    Suppose there is a panel control whose EnableViewState property is set to "false" .If this panel contains child controls like GridView , label controls , Template fields in gridview etc. , then will the viewstate property of the child controls automatically be disabled ?

    There's a concise document on the ASP.Net ViewState here:


    Do a page search for "child". The header "Disabling ViewState" should answer your question, though I would test it out yourself - it's pretty easy to debug something like this.
