Inline code event handlers

Hello Experts

I am using Visual Studio.NET 2005 for ASP.NET (C#) development. Whenever I double click a control that I drag onto my webform (from the toolbox) it generates the default event handler in the code behind. Is there any way to get the event handler to appear inline with the HTML source (in a <script> tag) rather than the code behind by default?

Thank you

Are you talking about a server-side <script> block (<script runat="server">, or a client-side JavaScript block?  If you double-click a control, VS will always generate a server-side script and always put it in the code-behind.  It's a fundamental peice of the MVC pattern (separating the code from the form) used by ASP.NET.  You could copy the code-behind to a server-side script block, but it will not work in a client side script.  You'll have to code that manually.

Hi dstanley9, yes I'm refering to a server side script block not client side. I am in the process of learning web development and came across the concept of "inline code" organisation and "code behind" organisation. I briefly know the pros and cons associated with each approach (i.e. code behind seperates concerns etc), and just wanted to know if it was possible to automatically generate an event handler method in a script block rather than the code behind (in VS.NET 2005).

Are you therefore saying that I'll have to copy the event handler across from the code behind to the html source in a script block?

Thanks for your help

Yes that is correct.  One other "disadvantage" is that the method does not show up in the drop-down listts in the properties window as a valid event handler.  However, VS is smart enough to take you to the inline code when you double-click the control _after_ you have copied and pasted the code.
