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

public event EventHandler ServerChange

The ServerChange event is raised when the Value property is changed on the server.


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

For more information about handling events, see NIB: Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates how to specify and code a handler for the ServerChange event. The custom event handler updates a label on the Web page to display the value of the text entered into the <input type=text> HTML element.
