Hi there,

I wanted to know the syntax for calling a js function inside an asp hyperlink control?

Sean - thanks in advance


<asp:HyperLink runat="server" Text="<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, &quot;shopname&quot;)%>" NavigateUrl='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "shop")%>' ID="Hyperlink1" NAME="Hyperlink1"/></td>

HyperLink control does not expose any events.

It might be better to call use a LinkButton and then add the javascript function call as an attribute.

In the Page_Load
 
 myLinkButton.Attributes.Add("onclick", "someJavascriptFuncion();");

The method shown above is perfect, but you can even call JavaScript using following method:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

function openexample()
{
    var props = 'location=no,menubar=no,toolbar=no,height=500,width=500';
    window.open('example.pdf,'Example',props,true);
}

<td><asp:hyperlink id="lnkpdf" runat="server" target="_blank" navigateurl="javascript:openexample();">example</asp:hyperlink></td>

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

bullrout:

With a hyperlink control you can set the NavigateUrl property to call the js function like this:

hl.NavigateUrl = "javascript:fnName();"

Assuming here the fnName is the name of the function.  You could, of course, pass parameters to the js function as needed.

daffodils is right also that the LinkButton control can be used.  The LinkButton control renders to the browser as an <a> tag.  The href="..." attribute of the <a> calls the __doPostBack() JavaScript routine that is written to the browser by ASP.NET to fire the postback.  So if you add an onclick event as daffodils shows, you can call another js routine *before* the postback happens.  I like to use this to disable the link button client-side before the postback to guarantee no further clicks on the button.
