@piyush : its working for me right now..... try did u get any error

RegisterForEventValidation can only be called during Render();

I am getting this error

The solution is quite simple you need to notify ASP.Net that not to validate the event by setting the EnableEventValidation flag to FALSE.

You can set it in the Web.Config in the following way

< pages enableEventValidation ="false" >< /pages >

This will apply to all the pages in your website. Else you can also set it in the @Page Directive of the page on which you are experiencing the above error.

< %@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" EnableEventValidation = "false"
