I created a CSS Button with rollover effects.
Here is the Source code for the buton:
<div id="rollovers">  
    <a  href="#"  onclick="GetES()" >
    </a>
 </div>
What I would like to happen is that when the user clicks on the CSS Button the "GetES" function in the Code Behind would fire.
Thanks
Matt

Maybe I did not explain it correctly.
This code:
<div id="rollovers">  
    <a  href="#"  onclick="GetES()" >click
    </a>
 </div>
is in my default.aspx page in the source code.
The GetES function:
Public Sub GetES()

End Sub

is in my default.aspx.vb page in the code behind.

When I put a break point on the Public Sub GetES() and then click on the CSS Button it does NOT hit GetES().
Hope this clears it up some.

Hey Guys
Came up with the solution. All you do is use this code

<a  href="#"  onclick="javascript:__doPostBack('Button1', '');" />
then put a button on your page but make all the attributes for the button Transparent. Then when the user clicks on the hyuperlink the button will fire on the code behind.
