ClientScriptManager.GetPostBackClientHyperlink Method (Control, String)

Gets a reference, with javascript: appended to the beginning of it, that can be used in a client event to post back to the server for the specified control and with the specified event arguments.

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

public string GetPostBackClientHyperlink(
	Control control,
	string argument
)

Parameters

control
Type: System.Web.UI.Control

The server control to process the postback.

argument
Type: System.String

The parameter passed to the server control.

Return Value

Type: System.String
A string representing a JavaScript call to the postback function that includes the target control's ID and event arguments.

Using the GetPostBackEventReference method requires the control that handles the postback to implement the IPostBackEventHandler interface. To implement the IPostBackEventHandler interface for a Page, use the @ Implements directive.

The following code example demonstrates the use of the GetPostBackClientHyperlink method. The custom control, MyControl, implements the IPostBackEventHandler interface. When the HTML anchor element on the page is clicked, the RaisePostBackEvent method of the custom control is invoked.

  {

    // Use the constructor to defined default label text.
    public MyControl()
    {
      base.Text = "No postback raised.";
    }

    // Implement the RaisePostBackEvent method from the
    // IPostBackEventHandler interface. 
    public void RaisePostBackEvent(string eventArgument)
    {
      base.Text = "Postback handled by " + this.ID.ToString() + ". <br/>" +
                  "Postback caused by " + eventArgument.ToString() + ".";

    }
  }

  protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
    // Get a ClientScriptManager reference from the Page class.
    ClientScriptManager cs = Page.ClientScript;

    // Create an instance of the custom label control and 
    // add it to the page.
    MyControl mycontrol = new MyControl();
    mycontrol.ID = "mycontrol1";
    PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(mycontrol);
    PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<br/>"));

    // Create a button element with its onClick attribute defined

    HtmlAnchor a = new HtmlAnchor();
    a.ID = "myanchor1";
    a.InnerText = "link";

The following code example has the same functionality as the preceding one, except that instead of a custom control, the Page class implements the IPostBackEventHandler interface.

<%@ Implements Interface="System.Web.UI.IPostBackEventHandler" %>

  public void RaisePostBackEvent(string eventArgument)
  {
    Label1.Text = "Postback handled by " + this.ID.ToString() + ". <br/>" +
                  "Postback caused by " + eventArgument.ToString() + "."; ;
  }

  protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
  {
    // Get a ClientScriptManager reference from the Page class.
    ClientScriptManager cs = Page.ClientScript;

    // Create a button element with its onClick attribute defined
    // to create a postback event reference to the custom label control.
    HtmlInputButton b = new HtmlInputButton();
    b.ID = "mybutton1";
    b.Value = "Click";
    b.Attributes.Add("onclick", cs.GetPostBackEventReference(this, b.ID.ToString()));
    PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(b);
    PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl("<br/>"));

    // Create a link element with its href attribute defined
    // to create a postback event reference to the custom label control.
    HtmlAnchor a = new HtmlAnchor();
    a.ID = "myanchor1";
    a.InnerText = "link";
    a.HRef = cs.GetPostBackClientHyperlink(this, a.ID.ToString());
    PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(a);
  }
