I'm a VB.NET guy, but I need to create a message box using C# once a button is clicked.  How do I go about doing that?


Here's the code:

private void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
                  string body = txtMessage.Text.Trim();
                  Mail.SendMail(MailInfo.SmtpServer, MailInfo.MailFrom, MailInfo.MailTo, string.Empty, MailInfo.Subject, body);
                  MessageBox.Show("My message box text.");
            }

Client-side or server-side messagebox ? What you have currently is a server-side messagebox, which (as far as I am aware) will simply be ignored since a messagebox on the server is of little use.

Ok, basically you have two options based on whether you want to display a message box at the start or end of the process.

To show an alert first, before the server-side click is handled you can add a script to the button:

    <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClientClick="alert('Button clicked')" />

To show an alert after the server-side click is handled:

    private void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {
       string body = txtMessage.Text.Trim();
       Mail.SendMail(MailInfo.SmtpServer, MailInfo.MailFrom, MailInfo.MailTo, string.Empty, MailInfo.Subject, body);

       Response.Write("<script language=\"javascript\">alert('Button clicked from server');</script>");
    }
