ancor tag href postback Request.QueryString

Posted on 2010-09-07

Hi Experts,

I have a dynamic list with a lot of <a> with dynamic href.
When i press the <a> i need to pass a value, with lets say a QueryString. The href refers back to the same page and therefore i need to Maintain Scroll Position. Because the value from the QueryString should make a DIV or asp:panel visible.

The list contains a lot of users, and by pressing a user name a box under the name should appear with  more details. That is what I'm trying to do if any one should have a better idea?

Best regards

you can do this using the href value with #Div

It looks like something I could use, but I can first test it when I get home, but I think that it would work :-)

in the page directive have Maintainscrollposition = true

then after the postback the page will maintain the scroll position

and why cant you use the linkbutton instead of hyperlink where on click you can check the requirement and show or hide the DIV or Panel

Because, it is a list with users first and last names that should be clicked. And a button would look odd.
