I have my Tool Part class to handle the properties of my Web Part. My method to create the properties( CreateChildControls ) is working fine but everytime I run this method it's reading a parameter from a previous postback.

So when I click to apply the changes..

public override void ApplyChanges()
        WebPart1 wp = (WebPart1 )this.ParentToolPane.SelectedWebPart;
        wp.test = paramet.Text;

It's supposed to read the current value of "paramet.Text" right? No..instead of this, it will call CreateChildControls again, this time my variable from a previous postBack doesn't exist, so no values for my "paramet.Text".

Is this the expected behaviour for ApplyChanges? Because this way..my properties will never be saved.

  • Why do you call EnsureChildControls? I've followes this example with great success: nothingbutsharepoint.com/sites/devwiki/articles/Pages/… – Robert Lindgren Sep 19 '13 at 12:26
  • just to make sure the child controls are being created. Thanks for the link. I'll have a look at it and I'll say something soon! – nhenrique Sep 19 '13 at 12:45
  • it worked. But I need something different here...Instead of ( this.ddColor.SelectedValue = wp.pColor; ) I'm checking if a variable exists, and if it does, I want to assign instead of wp.pColor. But it doesn't seem to take any effect, with a variable or a regular string.. – nhenrique Sep 19 '13 at 13:44
