    Hi,

    I am creating raddock controls dynamically based on the data from the database. Everything is working except the state is not changing on the initial postback. It works perfectly afterwards. Am I missing anything? 

    I am saving the state to the database after every change. Below is the code snippet of the page and the user control. Please take a look and let me know if I am missing anything.

    I was able to figure out the problem. I was assigning new value to the UniqueName property instead of using the one from the DockState. That fixed the problem.
