Scenario:

I have an <asp:repeater> filled with <asp:LinkButton> items.

I add .command and .commandargument to each linkbutton to execute am asp.net method, which will do som LINQ quering in a cached sqlobject based on the content of the commandargument, filll out some <asp:label> and <asp:textbox> items in a hidden DIV and then I need to call a javascript function to open then hidden DIV in a modal window.

My problem is: How can I  call the javascript function ?

In the "RepeaterItem_Command(Object sender, CommandEventArgs e)" method

I have tried to use ClientScript.RegisterStartUpScript(...)  but the code is never entered on the page
and I have tried to use Respons.Write(<SCRIPT> .....</SCRIPT); didn't work either

Tha page_load has been fired already before it gets to the command method, and there is no postback envolved.

I have tried this way and it is working.
Response.Write("<script language=\"javascript\">")
Response.Write("alert(\"User logged in\");");
Response.Write("</" + "script>");

Open in new window

From the linenumber it seems that Respons.Write is inserting the tekst right after the <table> tag holdig the <asp:repater> items.

This is the steps involved.

1. rendering page and the repeater items.
2. when user clicks one one of the <asp:LinkButton> items, the page_load is fired and after that it calls the command method
3. in the command method I do some LINQ queries and fill out som items in a hidden DIV on the page,
4. at the end of the command methods I want to call a javascript function to handle the modalwindow show of the items in the hidden DIV

it's the last step I'm having trouble with.

I found the solution myself.

It is NOT possible to use ClientScript.RegisterStartUpScript(...)  or response.write when handling the .command event for the <asp:linkbutton control. The response is written before the <html> tag (or so it seems) .

solution were to add the javascript code to call the javascript function in the..OnClientClick property for the linkbutton. When the link is clicked it will fire the .command delegate and the javascript will be executed by the client as well.
