Hi

I have a button on my ASP.net web page. When a user clicks o it
I want it to open the users email  in a new email  with
a certain email address as would
happen when you click on an email address in e.g. Word
How would I achieve this?

you should be able to do something like:

<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Email" onClick="location.href='mailto:someAddress@email.com" />

if you're looking to do it through the OnClick event, you'll need to use some JS:

<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
<P>Type 5 in the box and click the button</P>
<P>
<asp:TextBox id="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></P>
<P>
<asp:Button id="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button"></asp:Button></P>
<P>
<asp:HyperLink id="HyperLink1" runat="server" Visible="False"
NavigateUrl="mailto:me@myplace.com">Comment</asp:HyperLink></P>
</form>
Private Sub Button1_Click _
(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
Handles Button1.Click
If TextBox1.Text = "5" Then
Dim sb As New System.Text.StringBuilder
sb.Append("<script TYPE='text/javascript'>")
sb.Append("window.location='mailto:me@myplace.com' ;")
sb.Append("</script>")
Response.Write(sb.ToString)
End If
End Sub

Open in new window
