How to solve this error.


Whenever a postback is done, this error occurs when form fields are very large in number. The stack trace is:

at System.Web.HttpValueCollection.ThrowIfMaxHttpCollectionKeysExceeded() at System.Web.HttpValueCollection.FillFromEncodedBytes(Byte[] bytes, Encoding encoding) at System.Web.HttpRequest.FillInFormCollection()

By default, the maximum value of MaxHttpCollection is 1000.

To solve this error, increase the MaxHttpCollection value. Try adding the following setting in your web.config‘s<appsettings> block.

    <add key="aspnet:MaxHttpCollectionKeys" value="2001" />

It can solve your problem. If you have very large records on your page, say 600 records in a grid, and you click on Submit, then increase the value of MaxHttpCollection.

Then change value 2000 to 5000 and test again. It will be resolved.
