    I have a worklist (RadGrid) inside a XmlHttpPanel on a page.  The grid gets refreshed every 30 seconds.  The data inside the grid is remaining the same but the size of the post body is growing with every interval.  I am using FF and Firebug to evaluate what is going out on the wire.  I can see that the __EVENTVALIDATION is increasing with each post...below is a sample of the javascript used to invoke the postback...any insight would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks Doug
     var wlCtrlGridID = null;
     var wlCtrlAutoRefreshRate = 10000;
     var wlIntervalId = 0;
    function startWorklistRefresh() {
                    if (wlIntervalId == 0) {
                        wlIntervalId = setInterval("reloadWorklist();", wlCtrlAutoRefreshRate);
                function reloadWorklist() {
                    $find("<%= XmlGridPanel.ClientID %>").set_value("Reload");
                function cancelWorklistRefresh() {
                    wlIntervalId = 0;

    Hi Doug,

    I tested the following code and the data posted to the server is always of the same size (around 4KB):

    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <head id="Head1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadScriptBlock ID="RadScriptBlock1" runat="server">
            <script type="text/javascript">
                var wlCtrlGridID = null;
                var wlCtrlAutoRefreshRate = 10000;
                var wlIntervalId = 0;
                function startWorklistRefresh()
                    if (wlIntervalId == 0)
                        wlIntervalId = setInterval("reloadWorklist();", wlCtrlAutoRefreshRate);
                function reloadWorklist()
                    //alert("Set Value");
                    $find("<%= XmlGridPanel.ClientID %>").set_value("Reload");
                function cancelWorklistRefresh()
                    ///wlIntervalId = 0;
                function GridXmlPanel_OnResponseEnded(sender, args)
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
                <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.Core.js" />
        <asp:Button ID="Button2" runat="server" Text="Postback" />
        <input value="Set Value (callback)" onclick="startWorklistRefresh(); return false;"
            type="button" />
            <telerik:RadXmlHttpPanel ID="XmlGridPanel" runat="server" OnServiceRequest="XmlPanel1_ServiceRequest"
                OnClientResponseEnded="GridXmlPanel_OnResponseEnded" EnableClientScriptEvaluation="true">
                <telerik:RadGrid ID="Grid1" runat="server" GridLines="None" Style="outline: none;"
                    OnItemCreated="GridWorklist_ItemCreated" OnItemDataBound="GridWorklistt_ItemDataBound">

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.UI;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
    public partial class XmlPanel_Lifecycle : System.Web.UI.Page
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        protected void GridWorklist_ItemCreated(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e)
        protected void GridWorklistt_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e)
        protected void XmlPanel1_ServiceRequest(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.RadXmlHttpPanelEventArgs e)
            Grid1.DataSource = new string[] { DateTime.Now.ToString(), "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "1", "2", "3", "4", "5", "1", "2", "3", "4", "5" };

    I have attached a screenshot showing that the __EVENTVALIDATION is exactly the same after a couple of ASP.NET callbacks to the server.

    Could you please provide a fully working (sample) project that shows the increasing of the posted data, on every callback to the server?

    PS. Please note that, RadXmlHttpPanel can also use WebService to update its content. The data posted to the server in this case, is the value set to the XmlHttpPanel.

    All the best,
