        When you have a complex control, like DataGrid, writing an event processing routine for  
        each object (cell, button, row, etc.) is quite tedious. The controls can bubble up their 
        eventhandlers, allowing the main DataGrid event handler to take care of its constituents.

   8. What is the difference between Server.Transfer and Response.Redirect? Why would I choose  one over the other?

This provides a faster response with a little less overhead on the server. Server.Transfer does not update the clients url history list or current url. Response.Redirect is used to redirect the user's browser to another page or site. This performas a trip back to the client where the client's browser is redirected to the new page. The user's browser history list is updated to reflect the new address.

  10. What is ViewState?

ViewState is transported to the client and back to the server, and is not stored on the server or any other external source. ViewState is used the retain the state of server-side objects between postabacks.
  11. What does the "EnableViewState" property do? Why would I want it on or off?
          It allows the page to save the users input on a form across postbacks. It saves the server-side values for a given control into ViewState, which is stored as a hidden value on the page before sending the page to the clients browser. When the page is posted back to the server the server control is recreated with the state stored in viewstate.      

  12.  How to manage state in Asp.Net Web applications? 
     State management is done at client side and server side
Client Side: Client Side it can achieved with the help of View state, Cookies, Query String,hidden fields    and control state.

  13. What is smart navigation?  
         The cursor position is maintained when the page gets refreshed due to the server side validation and the page gets refreshed.
