Examples

Remarks

Call this method before calling Page.RegisterClientScriptBlock to avoid unnecessarily assembling the client-side script. This is particularly important if the script requires a large amount of server resources to create.

The IsClientScriptBlockRegistered method has been deprecated. Use the IsClientScriptBlockRegistered method in the ClientScriptManager class.
