ICallbackEventHandler.RaiseCallbackEvent Method

Processes a callback event that targets a control.

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

void RaiseCallbackEvent(
	string eventArgument


Type: System.String
A string that represents an event argument to pass to the event handler.

When null is used as the event argument parameter, the string is serialized to "null" and sent back to the server. Because there is no way to distinguish between null and "null", you should avoid using null argument parameters with callbacks.

Exceptions thrown in RaiseCallbackEvent will not prevent GetCallbackResult from being called and returning a result. To prevent GetCallbackResult from returning a result, set a flag when an exception is thrown in RaiseCallbackEvent and return an empty string from GetCallbackResult.
