Remarks

Call this method before calling the RegisterClientScriptBlock method to avoid registering duplicate scripts. This is particularly important if the script requires a large amount of server resources to create.

A client script is uniquely identified by its key and its type. Scripts with the same key and type are considered duplicates.

This overload of the IsClientScriptBlockRegistered method calls the overload that takes both a key and a type parameter with the type set as a Page object

IsClientScriptBlockRegistered(Type, String) IsClientScriptBlockRegistered(Type, String) IsClientScriptBlockRegistered(Type, String)

Determines whether the client script block is registered with the Page object using a key and type.

public:
 bool IsClientScriptBlockRegistered(Type ^ type, System::String ^ key);
public bool IsClientScriptBlockRegistered (Type type, string key);
member this.IsClientScriptBlockRegistered : Type * string -> bool

Parameters

type
Type Type Type Type

The type of the client script block to search for.

key
String String String String

The key of the client script block to search for.

Returns

true if the client script block is registered; otherwise, false.

Exceptions

Examples

The following code example demonstrates the use of the IsClientScriptBlockRegistered method. Note that, if the logic to check for the existing client script block were removed, there would not be two duplicate client scripts in the HTML source code of the rendered page because the RegisterClientScriptBlock method checks for duplicates. The benefit of checking is to reduce unnecessary computation.

Remarks

Call this method before calling the RegisterClientScriptBlock method to avoid registering duplicate scripts. This is particularly important if the script requires a large amount of server resources to create.

A client script is uniquely identified by its key and its type. Scripts with the same key and type are considered duplicates. You specify the type based on the object that will be accessing the resource. For instance, when using a Page instance to access the resource, you specify the Page type.
