ClientScriptManager.GetPostBackEventReference ClientScriptManager.GetPostBackEventReference ClientScriptManager.GetPostBackEventReference ClientScriptManager.GetPostBackEventReference Method

Definition

Returns a string that can be used in a client event to cause postback to the server.

Overloads

GetPostBackEventReference(Control, String, Boolean) GetPostBackEventReference(Control, String, Boolean) GetPostBackEventReference(Control, String, Boolean)

Returns a string to use in a client event to cause postback to the server. The reference string is defined by the specified control that handles the postback and a string argument of additional event information. Optionally, registers the event reference for validation.

GetPostBackEventReference(PostBackOptions, Boolean) GetPostBackEventReference(PostBackOptions, Boolean) GetPostBackEventReference(PostBackOptions, Boolean) GetPostBackEventReference(PostBackOptions, Boolean)

Returns a string that can be used in a client event to cause postback to the server. The reference string is defined by the specified PostBackOptions object. Optionally, registers the event reference for validation.

GetPostBackEventReference(PostBackOptions) GetPostBackEventReference(PostBackOptions) GetPostBackEventReference(PostBackOptions) GetPostBackEventReference(PostBackOptions)

Returns a string that can be used in a client event to cause postback to the server. The reference string is defined by the specified PostBackOptions instance.

GetPostBackEventReference(Control, String) GetPostBackEventReference(Control, String) GetPostBackEventReference(Control, String)

Returns a string that can be used in a client event to cause postback to the server. The reference string is defined by the specified control that handles the postback and a string argument of additional event information.

GetPostBackEventReference(Control, String, Boolean) GetPostBackEventReference(Control, String, Boolean) GetPostBackEventReference(Control, String, Boolean)

Returns a string to use in a client event to cause postback to the server. The reference string is defined by the specified control that handles the postback and a string argument of additional event information. Optionally, registers the event reference for validation.

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

Parameters

control
Control Control Control Control

The server Control that processes the postback on the server.

argument
String String String String

A string of optional arguments to pass to control.

registerForEventValidation
Boolean Boolean Boolean Boolean

true to register the event reference for validation; otherwise, false.

Returns

A string that, when treated as script on the client, initiates the postback.

Exceptions

Remarks

To implement the IPostBackEventHandler interface for a Page, use the directive.

The GetPostBackEventReference method can be used with the Button control when the UseSubmitBehavior property is false. In this scenario, the GetPostBackEventReference method returns the client postback event for the Button control.

If registerForEventValidation is true, the GetPostBackEventReference(PostBackOptions, Boolean) method calls the RegisterForEventValidation(String, String) method to register the event reference for validation with a unique control ID that represents the client control that is generating the event.

Examples

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