I have created an ascx control in which I try to place a simple object into viewstate for use on postback's for this my control. When I place an object into viewstate, it exists a few lines later when I update it. However on postbacks, the viewstate is always empty on my button click event handler. I read in another post that I needed to enable viewstate in my master page. When I placed 'this.Page.EnableViewState = true;' in my Masterpage OnInit event, i receievd a new error stating that my simple object needed to have the [Serializable] attribute. I added the attribute, but the view state is still empty on postback.
What else should I try to resolve this.
