Hi, I am doing a web site in ASP.NET 2.0 and +
Coding in C#.
I use Visual Studio 2008 and SQL 2005 for my database.

Ok here is my question (please see the Code snippet also)
ok so when I click on button it do absolutely nothing, no error, no action. nothing.
and yes my textbox is fine, the browser doesnt even 'tick' or work when we click on a button that works.  My inherits looks fine.. I try to put it on another ASPX page like Default.aspx
and the button still not work...

any ideas?
<!-- This is my snippet for .ASPX page -->
<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Template.master" AutoEventWireup="true"
    CodeFile="Contact.aspx.cs" Inherits="ZZ.Mysite.UI.Contact" 
    Title="Contact Us" 
%>
...
<asp:Button runat="server" ID="txtSubmit" Text="Send" OnClick="txtSubmit_Click" />
 
 
// This is my code-behind file
using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;
using System.Collections;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Security;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebParts;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
using System.Net.Mail;
using ZZ.Mysite;
 
namespace ZZ.MySite.UI
{
    public partial class Contact : BasePage
    {
        public void txtSubmit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
                txtName.Text = "Testing Button";
        }
    }
}

What kind of events are you overriding in the BasePage?
Sometime you can accidently remove the base.OnLoad reference etc which breaks the page event cycle. So can you post the events from BasePage? (For every overridden event in BasePage of the Page class you must call the base.EventName to ensure the Page class can move on to the next event in the page event lifecycle).

ok first of all, the txtName is :
<asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtName" Width="100%" />

I tried the response.write, did nothing..

For the basePage. I am actually doing 2 things.
1 is for my themes if in future I want to able Theme Selection.
the other one is for highlighting controls:

using ....

namespace ZZ.Mysite.UI
{
    public class BasePage : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        protected override void OnPreInit(EventArgs e)
        {
            string id = Globals.ThemesSelectorID;
            if (id.Length > 0)
            {
                if (this.Request.Form["__EVENTTARGET"] == id &&
                    !string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.Request.Form[id]))
                {
                    this.Theme = this.Request.Form[id];
                    this.Session["CurrentTheme"] = this.Theme;
                }
                else
                {
                    if (this.Session["CurrentTheme"] != null)
                        this.Theme = this.Session["CurrentTheme"].ToString();
                }
            }
            base.OnPreInit(e);
        }

        protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e)
        {
            Helpers.SetInputControlsHighlight(this, "highlight", false);
            base.OnLoad(e);
        }

    }
}

The only other thing i can see is that you are using namespaces in an asp.net 2 application. Now, we know that asp.net creates a partial file where we can add the code. But the other partial file that is generated by the compiler is the one that contains the control declarations. So i would suggest that you try to remove the namespaces so that all the code in these pages is in the default namespace.

Ok indeed but its a normal thing to put namespaces, I mean microsoft would have put that for us if we could not use them. Its not the first time I use Namespaces and my buttons were doing fine...
