How do I remove viewstate value when opened in notepad?

Hi,

Can the viewstate value be removed when a .doc file is opened in notepad?

Thanks,

Hi

Thanks for your inquiry. I think that you can’t determine which of the applications is used to open a file on client side.

Please let me know if you would like to know something else.

Best regards.

Hi,

I understand that any application can be used to open the file, but can I do something to ensure that the viewstate value is removed, prior to the file being downloaded and opened?

Thanks,

Hi

I think that you can use the Clear method to clear your ViewState. See the following code snippet.

ViewState.Clear();

I hope that this will help you.

Best regards.

Hi,

I have tried the above code snippet and it makes no difference at all, ViewState value still appears if the download doc is opened in notepad?

Thanks,

Hi

You can try to use the following code to clear ViewState variable.

ViewState[“YourVariableName”] = null;

Also note that this question isn’t related with Aspose.Words.
