ScriptManager.RegisterClientScriptResource Method (Page, Type, String)

Registers a client script file that is embedded in an assembly with the ScriptManager control every time that a postback occurs.

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

public static void RegisterClientScriptResource(
	Page page,
	Type type,
	string resourceName


Type: System.Web.UI.Page

The page object that is registering the script.

Type: System.Type

The type of the client script. This parameter is usually specified by using the typeof operator (C#) or the GetType operator (Visual Basic) to retrieve the type of the control that is registering the script.

Type: System.String

An identifier for the resource.


The client resource type is null.

- or -

The page that is registering the script is null.

When you register a script file with this method, the script is rendered every time that an asynchronous postback occurs. To register a script for a control that is inside an UpdatePanel control so that the script is registered only when the UpdatePanel control is updated, use the RegisterClientScriptResource(Control, Type, String) overload of this method.

If you want to register a script block that does not pertain to partial-page updates, and if you want to register the script block only one time during initial page rendering, use the RegisterClientScriptBlock method of the ClientScriptManager class. You can get a reference to the ClientScriptManager object from the ClientScript property of the page.
