Property Value

The client-side script that executes when a Button control's Click event is raised.

Use the OnClientClick property to specify additional client-side script that executes when a Button control's Click event is raised. The script that you specify for this property is rendered in the Button control's OnClick attribute in addition to the control's predefined client-side script.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and Introduction to ASP.NET Themes.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the OnClientClick property to specify additional client-side script that executes when a Button control is clicked.
