  • (2016-10-28) Aaron Gibbs: Simply reads the size of the first __Viewstate hidden form field. If you are using viewstate chunking this is worthless.
  • (2015-10-19) Marc de Vries: Je weet meteen hoeveel procent van je pagina uit ViewState bestaat. Snel en simpel!
  • (2015-04-16) כל כך פשוט, קל ונח.
  • (2014-05-22) John Cockrell: Needed to refresh initially to get information to show, after that worked well. Requires access to full page which is guess is unavoidable.
