Could not load the type error “is not marked as serializable”

There are various issues which may occur on custom application running under SharePoint ,if the application and configuration doesn’t done properly. But one of the issue which I thought really pained was Could not load the type and the specific type “”is not marked as serializable“.

Basically the reasons to serialize is to persist the state of an object to a storage medium so an exact copy can be recreated at a later stage, and to send the object by value from one application domain to another.It is also used by remoting to pass objects by value from one application domain to another.
But the chief disadvantage is the overhead involved in serializing and de-serializing data, as well as latency issues with transmitting text over a TCP network.

So I don’t want to mark the class as “Serializable” and started to do the investigation and ended up with a simple solution by setting the <sessionState mode=”InProc” /> instead it was earlier “SQLServer”  in my QA environment and the application started work perfectly.

But still I am just having concerns about using “InProc”  because I think my environment is a WebGarden and I don’t think so storing the session state in memory will not help any change to web.config or application pool restart will vanish my session objects.

As web traffic becoming a great challenge nowadays  and mostly the identification and indexing is happening using a page title,description and keywords. The new feature in 4.0 allows programmers to set the page title,description and keywords from code behind like below.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        Page.Title = “BestOfCyber – Downloads”;
        Page.MetaKeywords = “BestOfCyber,Downloads,Microsoft”;

ASP.NET Dynamic Controls – ThumbRule

Dynamic Controls Should be Loaded on Each PostBack

One of the biggest challenges with working with dynamically added controls is that these controls must be programmatically added on each postback. That is, you can’t just load these controls on the first page load, and then not reload them on subsequent postbacks. Failure to explicitly add the controls on each postback will cause the controls to literally disappear on postbacks.

Understand better the ViewState and Dynamic Property Settings

Expecting your ViewState to retain after the postback, always assign same ID to the dynamic control
