        Page.RegisterStartupScript("test",@"<script>parent .window.location.reload();</script>");

what my problem is, whenever i select theme, its changing but i need to toggle it again to bring back to original theme.
i have use viewstate to resolve the problem.
 i have stylesheet.css where it is called all over the place. i have theme1.css, i rename the stylesheet.css to a temporary
stylesheet1.css and theme1.css to stylesheet.css.
now using viewstate, i need to bring back to the original theme.since if i select theme2 or theme3. it should work properly.

i just want to know , how viewstate is used in code behind files?

i will make my question little more clearer.
i have a drop down box having theme1,theme2 and theme3 as values.
the default stylesheet for the site is stylesheet.css
when i select theme1. the entire site get changed to theme1.

how i did this is
system.file.io.move(\\stylesheet.css, \\ stylesheet1.css)
system.file.io.move(\\stylesheettheme1.css, \\stylesheet.css)
now stylesheet.css contain stylesheettheme1.css

now i am problem is if i select theme2. again i will use move method to replace file,
system.file.io.move(\\stylesheet.css, \\ stylesheet2.css)
system.file.io.move(\\stylesheettheme2.css, \\stylesheet.css)
but here the stylesheet contain stylesheettheme1.css which i changed when i click theme1.
now when i select theme1, theme1 should apply my site and by using the viewstate property i want to change back to my default site.
how can i do that using viewstate.
can anyone please help me in this matter

i have a drop down list containing values theme1, theme2 , theme3
corresponding to theme1 is stylesheet1, theme2 is stylesheet2 etc

when i select theme1 the entire site get changed.then the viewstate value is say 1, now when i select theme2 or theme3 etc,
my viewstate value will be changed accordingly. now i have to comapre old viewstate with new viewstate.

the default stylesheet will change according to the selection in the dropdown. if i select theme1, default stylesheet will be changed to theme1. when i select theme2, default stylesheet should become theme2 but i am having theme1 as a default. so when i select theme2,it is overwriting theme1.it should not happen. in that case i need to use viewstate.

did anyone know how to solve my problem, its very urgent.
plz help me

You use ViewState same way you use Session

ViewState["somevalueToStore"] = textBox1.Text;
string storedValue = (string)ViewState["someValueToStore"];
