ASP.NET ViewState Helper for Fiddler 1.1 Released!

I am happy to announce the release of ASP.NET ViewState Helper for Fiddler 1.1. This small update adds compatibility for Fiddler2 versions 2.1 and higher. If you are using an older version of Fiddler2, you don't need to update to this new release. If you are using a newer version of Fiddler2, and the ASP.NET ViewState Helper isn't working for you, this new release should fix it. As always, if you run into any issues please feel free to post in the Support Forum.

I happned to see your post and wanted to share a tip on "Viewstate" which is as follows:

Here is the description:
A Tip While Using ViewState

View state maintains data in a page across postbacks. And this data passes in form of hidden field data. There is a certain limitation of this hidden field. If your hidden field will be greater than that specified value, then sometimes firewalls and proxy servers refuse to let your data passes through. And in that case you have to disable your view state .This might cause many problem if you want your data to be passed.

So to overcome this problem you can do viewstate chunking. This is a process of splitting the data into multiple chunks and putting them into multiple hidden fields, So that there will not be any problem to your data to pass through. This chunking is done by adding "MaxPageStateFieldLength" property in the page tag in web.config file. The default value is -1 which indicates there is no maximum limit of data. You have to give the integer value which indicates the maximum bytes size for a viewstate field.

For more detail please visit this link:

Hope you find it useful and of assistance:

Thanks for the tip Bizz. On a side note, ASP.NET ViewState Helper can also handle chunked viewstate when decoding.

You gave great points here. I did some research on the subject and have found nearly all people agree with your blog.
