               if (webPart.Title == Title && webPart.IsClosed == true)
            MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream();
             XmlTextWriter writer = new XmlTextWriter(stream, System.Text.Encoding.UTF8);
              webPart.ExportMode = WebPartExportMode.All;

    // Export the closed webpart to a memory stream.
       wpManager.ExportWebPart(webPart, writer);

                  stream.Position = 0;

              XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader(stream);

          // Import the exported webpart.
              System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts.WebPart newWebPart = wpManager.ImportWebPart(reader, out errorMessage);
