HtmlAnchor.ServerClick Event

Occurs when the HtmlAnchor control is clicked.

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

public event EventHandler ServerClick
<asp:HtmlAnchor OnServerClick="EventHandler" />

The ServerClick event is raised when the HtmlAnchor control is clicked. This server event causes a round trip to occur from the client to the server and back.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to declaratively specify and code an event handler for the ServerClick event. When the HtmlAnchor control is clicked, a message is displayed.

      <a id="AnchorButton"

      </a>

      <br /><br />

      <span id="Message" runat="server"/>

   </form>

The following code example modifies the previous example to programmatically specify and code an event handler for the ServerClick event.

<script runat="server">

      void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
      {

         // Create an EventHandler delegate for the method you want to handle the event
         // and then add it to the list of methods called when the event is raised.
         AnchorButton.ServerClick += new System.EventHandler(this.HtmlAnchor_Click);

      }

      void HtmlAnchor_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e)
      {

         Message.InnerHtml = "Thank you for clicking the HtmlAnchor control.";

      }
