Is there a way a javascript event can raise an event or set some value that the C# code behind can process?

As in __doPostback

or

setting some hidden field?

I just don't remember the mechanics of it.


Please provide working source code for both of the options I listed, or a better way than either one of those is fine.

This looks like a good solution, but I would like a few more options.

What about using doPostback or hidden fields?

another way is using AJAX and Javascript.
we use XMLHTTPRequest object to go to server behind the scenes and call events.

here is an example

Hello,

Try this code.

StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
sb.Append("<script language='JavaScript'>");
sb.AppendFormat("window.close")
sb.Append("</script>");
Page.RegisterStartupScript("Test", sb.ToString());

Also try this code.

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
  if(!IsPostBack)  
 {
       Button1.Attributes.Add("onclick","return confirm('Do u want to postback ?')");
 }
}
