<asp:Button ID="btAdd" runat="server" Text="Add" />

code behind Page_load
btAdd.Attributes.Add["onclick", "myJavaScriptFunction()");

Is that what you want ?

And maybe you wondered, this is how you register a javascript function which at server side you want to generate and render to your page

Hope this helps
JINN



public void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
 {
    if(Request.QueryString["redirect"] != null)
      if(Request.QueryString["redirect"] == "true")
        if (!this.IsStartupScriptRegistered("Startup"))
        {
          // Form the script to be registered at client side.
          String scriptString = "<script language=\>";
          scriptString += "function MyFunction(){alert('hello world'}";     
          scriptString += "</script>";
          this.RegisterStartupScript("Startup", scriptString);
        }
 
       btAdd.Attributes.Add("onclick", "MyFunction()");   
 }

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I was thinking more like this.  Except this does not work.  Is it the javaScript
of the ASP.NET that's at fault?

thanks,

<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function DODataLookup(){

Oke then it should be:
 
<asp:Button ID="submitBtn" runat="server" OnClientClick="DODataLookup()" Style="z-index: 100; left: 118px; position: absolute; top: 140px" Text="Submit" />

anyway you can set style like that for your button I guess, you will have to set the CssClass which refers to the predefine CSS class. If you want to simplify that:

<div style="z-index: 100; left: 118px; position: absolute; top: 140px">
     <asp:Button ID="submitBtn" runat="server" OnClientClick="DODataLookup()"  Text="Submit" />
</div>

or <span>

It is not possible to use normal html property for server control like you do with <input > <select ..> normal html element

This is not working.  Could it be the path name in the JavaScript?

how do I find the error?

newbieweb


<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function DODataLookup(){
            window.location = "../DataLookup.aspx";
    }
    </script>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div style="z-index: 100; left: 118px; position: absolute; top: 140px">
        <asp:Button ID="submitBtn" runat="server" OnClientClick="DODataLookup()"  Text="Submit" />
    </div>
    </form>
</body>

you can test if your button call the javascript by:

      function DODataLookup(){
           alert(' hey ');
            window.location = "../DataLookup.aspx";
    }

you see hey, then the next line is the problem, appear to me it will navigate to the parent folder of this page and lookfor datalookup.aspx ? is what you want? What you are doing is redirecting the current page to that page.

Play around with the path

I'm having trouble with a null test in JavaScript for a var type:

        alert('OK1');
        var elem = document.getElementByID("recordLocatorTextBox");
       
        if (elem != 'undefined')
        {
               alert('OK2');
        }

what is the correct way to test if elem is null?  I never get OK2.

jinn_hnnlCommented:
There are major different between undefined and null,

If you check
 if (elem != null)
        {
               alert('OK2');
        }
it's the same as
 if(!elem),
and they are good enough

btw if you want to check if the property is set or not:
 if (elem.style != 'undefined') is the correct way (with quote)

Keep in mind, javascript is case sensitive:
var elem = document.getElementById("recordLocatorTextBox");
(instead of ID it's Id)
