System.ArgumentException: Invalid postback or callback argument.

    General discussion

  • I got an email from a user who was posting to a relatively simple list and getting an error every time. He had a Correlation ID for me and when I looked it up I got the message below. After talking with him, I realized he was using Chrome.  When he tried from IE, everything worked fine.  I didn’t see this error message connected with Chrome anywhere, so I thought I’d share in hopes that it could save someone else some time.
