Hi,
ISPOSTBACK is available for web form
Example:
 Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        'Put user code to initialize the page here
             
            If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
                 Response.Write("Post back event not occurs here")
                 'This block is executed only on the first  time the web form is loaded
            else
                  Response.Write("Post back event  occurs here")
                  'If any server event occurs like button click ,this block will fire
            EndIf
End Sub

AutoPostBack Property is available for web form controls like checkbox,..
-automatically posts back to the server when clicked.

Ex:

CheckBox.AutoPostBack =True
-------------------------------
Gets or sets a value indicating whether the CheckBox state automatically posts back to the server when clicked.

true to automatically post the state of the CheckBox control to the server when it is clicked; otherwise, false. The default is false.

ispostback is not a property, rather it is a keyword use to test if the pages is reloaded..

autopostback is a property, if it is set to true then everytime you trigger the postback the page will be reloaded..

ispostback is a boolean keyword.

Hi   el_hey ,

your comment is WRONG.

I you refer in MSDN 2003  ispostback is given as property of Page Class.(System.Web.UI.Page)
Page.IsPostBack Property
------------------------------
Gets a value indicating whether the page is being loaded in response to a client postback, or if it is being loaded and accessed for the first time.
Property Value
-----------------
true if the page is being loaded in response to a client postback; otherwise, false.



AutoPostBack
----------------

AutoPostBack is built into the form-based server controls, and when enabled, automatically posts the page back to the server whenever the value of the control in question is changed. Because of the additional server requests it causes, it's not something you'll want to enable for all your controls, but for things that affect page display or change choices further down the form, it can be really handy. Not to mention the fact that it will save you a lot of time and headaches over trying to implement something similar on your own. Not that it's really all that complex to do on your own if you're good with javascript, but it's hard to get any simpler then just setting AutoPostBack="True"

if you right-click on the web form and go to properties, the properties window of the web form doesn't show anything that says IsPostback. This is why I thought it's not a design view property.
