Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerParserErrorException: The message received from the server could not be parsed

I have a grid view on my page and I want to export it to the Excel Sheet,
Below is the code I had written to do this task, here I am already passing the dataset to the method to bind the grid and btnExcelExport is the button which will export the Grid Content in to Excel Sheet :-

private void BindGridView(DataSet ds)
{
    if (ds.Tables.Count > 0)
    {
        if (ds.Tables[0].Rows.Count > 0)
        {
            GVUserReport.DataSource = ds;
            GVUserReport.DataBind();
            btnExcelExport.Visible = true;
        }
    }
}

protected void btnExcelExport_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    Response.Clear();
    Response.AddHeader("content-disposition","attachment;filename=FileName.xls");
    Response.Charset = "";
    Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);
    Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.xls";
    System.IO.StringWriter stringWrite = new System.IO.StringWriter();
    System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter htmlWrite = new HtmlTextWriter(stringWrite);
    GVUserReport.RenderControl(htmlWrite);
    Response.Write(stringWrite.ToString());
    Response.End();
}

public override void VerifyRenderingInServerForm(Control control)
{
    return;
}

Now when I am debugging I found that the grid is binded sucessfully but when trying to export it to Excel, I’m getting this error:

“Microsoft JScript runtime error:
Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerParserErrorException: The message
received from the server could not be parsed.”

Answers:

Thank you for visiting the Q&A section on Magenaut. Please note that all the answers may not help you solve the issue immediately. So please treat them as advisements. If you found the post helpful (or not), leave a comment & I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Method 1

I fixed this issue. As I’m using UpdatePanel, I added below code in the Page_Load event of the page and it worked for me:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
  ScriptManager scriptManager = ScriptManager.GetCurrent(this.Page);
  scriptManager.RegisterPostBackControl(this.btnExcelExport);
  //Further code goes here....
}

Method 2

In my case, the problem was caused by some Response.Write commands at Master Page of the website (code behind). They were there only for debugging purposes (that’s not the best way, I know)…

Method 3

I added the control to the Triggers tag in the update panel:

    </ContentTemplate>
    <Triggers>
        <asp:PostBackTrigger ControlID="exportLinkButton" />
    </Triggers>
</asp:UpdatePanel>

This way the exportLinkButton will trigger the UpdatePanel to update.
More info here.

Method 4

1- Never use Response.Write.

2- I put the code below after create (not in Page_Load) a LinkButton (dynamically) and solved my problem:

ScriptManager scriptManager = ScriptManager.GetCurrent(this.Page);
scriptManager.RegisterPostBackControl(lblbtndoc1);

Method 5

I had the same error, then I tried <asp:PostBackTrigger ControlID="xyz"/> instead of AsyncPostBackTrigger .This worked for me. It is because we don’t want a partial postback.

Method 6

For my VB.Net Friends –

Dim scriptManager As ScriptManager = scriptManager.GetCurrent(Me.Page)
scriptManager.RegisterPostBackControl(Me.YourButtonNameHere)

Method 7

Add this to you PageLoad and it will solve your problem:

ScriptManager scriptManager = ScriptManager.GetCurrent(this.Page);
scriptManager.RegisterPostBackControl(this.lblbtndoc1);

Method 8

This worked for me too, but with an addition (below).

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
  ScriptManager scriptManager = ScriptManager.GetCurrent(this.Page);
  scriptManager.RegisterPostBackControl(this.btnExcelExport);
  //Further code goes here....
}

I was registering a script on my button to click on another button after its event was finished processing. In order for it to work, I had to remove the other button from the Update Panel (just in case somebody faces the same problem).

Method 9

What worked for me was setting aspnet:MaxHttpCollectionKeys to a high value on appSettings tag on the inetpub VirtualDirectories443web.config file:

<configuration>
    <appSettings>
        <add key="aspnet:MaxHttpCollectionKeys" value="100000" />
    </appSettings>
</configuration>
