BulletedList.RaisePostBackEvent Method

Raises events for the BulletedList control when a form is posted back to the server.

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

protected virtual void RaisePostBackEvent(
	string eventArgument


Type: System.String
The string representation for the index of the list item that raised the event.

The RaisePostBackEvent method is used internally by the BulletedList control when a link button within the item list is clicked. The containing page specifies the index of the clicked link button in the eventArgument parameter, which is used to initialize the Index property of a BulletedListEventArgs object. The RaisePostBackEvent method raises a Click event by passing the initialized BulletedListEventArgs object to the OnClick method.

The RaisePostBackEvent method optionally can perform validation before raising the Click event for the control. To validate a group of controls on the page when a link button within the BulletedList is clicked, set the CausesValidation property to true and specify the group of controls to be validated in the ValidationGroup property.
