UpdatePanelUpdateMode Enum

Definition

Represents the possible update modes for the content in an UpdatePanel control.

public enum class UpdatePanelUpdateMode
public enum UpdatePanelUpdateMode
type UpdatePanelUpdateMode = 
Public Enum UpdatePanelUpdateMode
Inheritance
UpdatePanelUpdateMode

Fields

Always 0

The content of the UpdatePanel control is updated for all postbacks that originate from the page. This includes asynchronous postbacks.

Conditional 1

Specifies a number of conditions under which the content of the UpdatePanel control is updated; see the Remarks section for more information.

Examples

The following example declares two UpdatePanel controls. The first panel sets the UpdatePanel.UpdateMode property to Conditional. The second panel has UpdatePanel.UpdateMode set to Always by default. A button outside both panels is registered as an asynchronous postback control by using the ScriptManager.RegisterAsyncPostBackControl method. In the button's click event handler, the UpdatePanel.Update method of the first panel is called if more than five seconds have elapsed since its last update. In this scenario, the panel's content is updated only if the last panel update was more than five seconds ago. The second panel's content is always updated.

Remarks

The UpdatePanelUpdateMode enumeration is used by the UpdatePanel.UpdateMode property and defines the possible update modes for the content of an UpdatePanel control. The UpdatePanel control requires that the ScriptManager.EnablePartialRendering property be true for partial-page rendering to occur.

The default value of the UpdatePanel.UpdateMode property is Always.

If the UpdatePanel control is inside another UpdatePanel control and the parent panel is updated, the nested panel will also be updated regardless of the UpdateMode property value.

The Conditional value updates the content of the UpdatePanel control under the following conditions:

  • The UpdatePanel.Update method is called explicitly.

  • A control is defined as a trigger by using the UpdatePanel.Triggers property and causes a postback. In this scenario, the control is an explicit trigger for updating the panel content. The trigger control can be either inside or outside the UpdatePanel control that defines the trigger.

  • The UpdatePanel.ChildrenAsTriggers property is set to true and a child control of the UpdatePanel control causes a postback. In this scenario, child controls of the UpdatePanel control are implicit triggers for updating the panel. Child controls of nested UpdatePanel controls do not cause the outer UpdatePanel control to be updated unless they are explicitly defined as triggers.
