Remarks

Use the OnClientClick property to specify additional client-side script that executes when a Button control's Click event is raised. The script that you specify for this property is rendered in the Button control's OnClick attribute in addition to the control's predefined client-side script.

This property cannot be set by themes or style sheet themes. For more information, see ThemeableAttribute and ASP.NET Themes and Skins.
