Needed a messagebox that worked in asp.net and found this example which fits perfectly. On the form itself works fine. But i want create a function to call from any form.

Original Code

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
    Dim message As String = "Hello! Mudassar."
    Dim sb As New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    sb.Append("<script type = 'text/javascript'>")
    sb.Append("window.onload=function(){")
    sb.Append("alert('")
    sb.Append(message)
    sb.Append("')};")
    sb.Append("</script>")
    ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(Me.GetType(), "alert", sb.ToString())
End Sub

Open in new window


My Code

I try to pass the message and webform (I think that is how a form is passed to a function). But in ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock, an error message appears "clientscript is not declared"
 Public Shared Function MyMsgbox(ByVal Msg As String, ByVal WebFrm As Page) As String
        MyMsgbox = ""
        Dim message As String = msg
        Dim sb As New System.Text.StringBuilder()
        sb.Append("<script type = 'text/javascript'>")
        sb.Append("window.onload=function(){")
        sb.Append("alert('")
        sb.Append(message)
        sb.Append("')};")
        sb.Append("</script>")
        ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(WebFrm.GetType(), "alert", sb.ToString())
    End Function

The ClientScript identifier is a property of the Page object, so just put WebFrm. before it.

Side notes: As you are not returning anything useful, your method should be a Sub. You should escape backslashes and apostrophes in the message string, so that the client code doesn't crash if you happen to put those in the message. You can use the overload of RegisterClientScriptBlock that adds script tags, so that you don't have to put them in the string.

Public Shared Sub MyMsgbox(ByVal Msg As String, ByVal WebFrm As Page)
        Dim sb As New System.Text.StringBuilder()
        sb.Append("window.onload=function(){")
        sb.Append("alert('")
        sb.Append(Msg.Replace("\", "\\").Replace("'", "\'"))
        sb.Append("')};")
        WebFrm.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptBlock(WebFrm.GetType(), "alert", sb.ToString(), True)
    End Function
