HtmlInputCheckBox.OnServerChange Method

Raises the ServerChange event. This method allows you to handle the event directly.

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

protected virtual void OnServerChange(
	EventArgs e
)

Parameters

e
Type: System.EventArgs

A System.EventArgs that contains event information.

This event is raised when the Web page is submitted to the server and the HtmlInputCheckBox control changes state from the previous post. This method allows you to override the base implementation and provide a custom handler for the event.

NoteNote:

The control must have view state enabled for the ServerChange event to work correctly.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. For more information, see Raising an Event.

The OnServerChange method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors:

When overriding OnServerChange in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's OnServerChange method so that registered delegates receive the event.

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the ServerChange event.
