ScriptManager.RegisterClientScriptInclude Method (Page, Type, String, String)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Registers client script with the ScriptManager control every time that an asynchronous postback occurs, and then adds a script file reference to the page.

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

public static void RegisterClientScriptInclude(
	Page page,
	Type type,
	string key,
	string url


Type: System.Web.UI.Page

The page object that is registering the client script file.

Type: System.Type

The type of the client script file. 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

A unique identifier for the script file.

Type: System.String

The URL of the script file.

Exception Condition

The client script file type is null.

- or -

The page that is registering the script file is null.


url is null.

- or -

url is empty.

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