    I'm trying to track down some issues with invalid viewstate errors on my site. It is already the case that the site is using a specific machine key in the config file. One item noted on this post (http://bytes.com/topic/asp-net/answers/861764-invalid-viewstate-system-string-decryptstringwithiv) is that some of the script blocks are not wrapped in CDATA. In looking at the source for my site, I too notice that none of my blocks are wrapped in CDATA blocks which surprised me given that they are all wrapped in RadCodeBlocks.

    Is it the case that RadCodeBlocks do not automatically wrap their contents in CDATA blocks when the DOCTYPE is set to XHTML? Is there a setting on the RadCodeBlocks to have it do so?

    Hi Thomas,

    The RadCodeBlock control does not render any content on its own and it does not modify the output of controls or scripts placed inside it. The purpose of RadCodeBlock is described here:


    If you want to have CDATA blocks, please add them manually.
