I have a repeater control with a HTML radio button in it..

<input id="rbSelected" type="radio" value='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"ContactID") %>' runat="server" />

I need to add a onclick event so that i can handle this event code behind..

i tried adding something like this..


<input id="rbSelected" type="radio" value='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"ContactID") %>' runat="server" onclick="rbSelected_Click" />

and in code behind i tried to handle this event..

protected void rbSelected_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       
    }
but it doesnt work..

If there is'nt any onclick event.. is there any other way i could handle this  code behind.. meaning when the user clicks on a radio button.. then capture that event code behind..


Please help !!!

Hi M3hcSS,

Since this radio button is a HTML Control It doesnt have a property called Autopostback

The reason i'm using a HTML radio button is because i'm trying to store a value for the radio button in it..

<input id="rbSelected" type="radio" value='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"ContactID") %>' runat="server" />

Then you would have to use client-side jscript events to cause a PostBack, and then manually determine in your codebehind whether your jscript caused the PostBack, and react accordingly. You can't directly hook a server-side handler to a client-side event.

Either use a RadioButton web control, or look here (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/dhtml/reference/objects/input_radio.asp) and review the available client-side events that you can use with the HtmlInputRadioButton. Unless you are very comfortable with the ASP.NET page lifecycle and also jscript, I would highly recommend you use a RadioButton web control instead.

You should still be able to set the value of a RadioButton web control. Even though it doesn't list value as a server-side property, you can still use it since it is a regular HTML attribute of the input type=radio tag. Or, you could simply set a myvalue=... atribute, and check the value of the control's Attributes["myvalue"] in the codebehind.
