ASP.NET / Ajax Problem - calling function in orginal Page

Hi,

Have an aspx pageA which calls via jQuery .load() a different aspx pageB into a div on pageA.

On pageB I have a button control which will cause a postback.  The postback returns pageA which is fine.

However, I need the button control on pageB to call a sub on pageA on postback, but I cannot add the reference of the Function on pageA to the AddHandler of the button on pageB.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Create the button on page A with the correct handler
hide it with CSS.
have the button that you bring in from page B fire that button on A with JS.

Hi drain,

A damn good idea!

I added the button to pageA, passed it's ClientID through the querystring to the Ajax page, and then got the onclick handler of the button on pageB to click the button on PageA.

However, the response was that the object of the button on PageA was null. In which I guess the JS on pageB can't see it.

Scrap that - I was assigning the ClientID from the Querystring to a variable AFTER I had assigned the onclick Event Handler!

Cheers - works as I need!

Hi drain,

I know this query is solved, but immediately ran into another issue which is that the PageA can not access the form controls (textbox, listbox) of the PageB page.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

You'll want to look at what kind of html the pageb is putting out.
I assume you want to access the form controls via JS. You won't be able to access them via .NET

But if your form controls on Page B are ASP controls they likely have some things added to the IDs on the page so
<asp:whatever id="blah" runat="server"/>
would become
<whatever id="pageidentifier_blah" />

So your JS has to access the pageidentifier_blah instead of just blah.

Firebug or the like should help you find the correct IDs if you are not sure...
