ClientScriptManager.RegisterClientScriptBlock Method (Type, String, String)

Registers the client script with the Page object using a type, key, and script literal.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public void RegisterClientScriptBlock(
	Type type,
	string key,
	string script
)

Parameters

type
Type: System.Type

The type of the client script to register.

key
Type: System.String

The key of the client script to register.

script
Type: System.String

The client script literal to register.

A client script is uniquely identified by its key and its type. Scripts with the same key and type are considered duplicates. Only one script with a given type and key pair can be registered with the page. Attempting to register a script that is already registered does not create a duplicate of the script.

Call the IsClientScriptBlockRegistered method to determine whether a client script with a given key and type pair is already registered and avoid unnecessarily attempting to add the script.

In this overload of the RegisterClientScriptBlock method, you must make sure that the script provided in the script parameter is wrapped in a <script> element block.

The RegisterClientScriptBlock method adds a script block to the top of the rendered page. The script blocks are not guaranteed to be output in the order they are registered. If the order of the script blocks is important, use a StringBuilder object to gather the scripts together in a single string, and then register them all in a single client script block.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the RegisterClientScriptBlock method.

<%@ Page Language="C#"%>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<script runat="server">
  public void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
    // Define the name and type of the client script on the page.
    String csName = "ButtonClickScript";
    Type csType = this.GetType();

    // Get a ClientScriptManager reference from the Page class.
    ClientScriptManager cs = Page.ClientScript;

    // Check to see if the client script is already registered.
    if (!cs.IsClientScriptBlockRegistered(csType, csName))
    {
      StringBuilder csText = new StringBuilder();
      csText.Append("<script type=\"text/javascript\"> function DoClick() {");
      csText.Append("Form1.Message.value='Text from client script.'} </");
      csText.Append("script>");
      cs.RegisterClientScriptBlock(csType, csName, csText.ToString());
    }
  }
</script>
