Gets a reference, with javascript: appended to the beginning of it, that can be used in a client event to post back to the server.

Overloads

GetPostBackClientHyperlink(Control, String) GetPostBackClientHyperlink(Control, String) GetPostBackClientHyperlink(Control, String)

Gets a reference, with javascript: appended to the beginning of it, that can be used in a client event to post back to the server for the specified control and with the specified event arguments.

GetPostBackClientHyperlink(Control, String, Boolean) GetPostBackClientHyperlink(Control, String, Boolean) GetPostBackClientHyperlink(Control, String, Boolean)

Gets a reference, with javascript: appended to the beginning of it, that can be used in a client event to post back to the server for the specified control with the specified event arguments and Boolean indication whether to register the post back for event validation.

Gets a reference, with javascript: appended to the beginning of it, that can be used in a client event to post back to the server for the specified control and with the specified event arguments.

public:
 System::String ^ GetPostBackClientHyperlink(System::Web::UI::Control ^ control, System::String ^ argument);
public string GetPostBackClientHyperlink (System.Web.UI.Control control, string argument);
member this.GetPostBackClientHyperlink : System.Web.UI.Control * string -> string

Parameters

control
Control Control Control

The server control to process the postback.

argument
String String String

The parameter passed to the server control.

Returns

A string representing a JavaScript call to the postback function that includes the target control's ID and event arguments.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates the use of the GetPostBackClientHyperlink method. The custom control, MyControl, implements the IPostBackEventHandler interface. When the HTML anchor element on the page is clicked, the RaisePostBackEvent method of the custom control is invoked.
