AddThis.com Social Buttons After Update Panel Postback

Hi,

I am having issues keeping the AddThis Buttons live after a postback.

        Dim sb As System.Text.StringBuilder = New System.Text.StringBuilder()
        sb.Append("<script type=""text/javascript"" src=""//s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ra-4d7531fa1e1f4be5""></script>")

        If (Not ClientScript.IsStartupScriptRegistered("SocialJava")) Then
            ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Me, Me.GetType(), "SocialJava", sb.ToString(), False)
        End If

Open in new window


I can fire it after the load and it will work once or on load and it will work once, but never a second time.

I have tried lots of solutions to get it working, but i'm running into issues as its an external file?

Any help would be appreciated?

Cheers
Karl

check this page : http://www.addthis.com/blog/2013/05/07/a-brief-history-of-using-addthis-dynamically/#.VAp0imR5Odw

so put the following in head section : <script src="http://s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#async=1" type="text/javascript">

and use :
        Dim sb As System.Text.StringBuilder = New System.Text.StringBuilder()
        sb.Append("<script type=""text/javascript"">window.onload = function() { addthis.init(); }</script>")

        If (Not ClientScript.IsStartupScriptRegistered("SocialJava")) Then
            ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Me, Me.GetType(), "SocialJava", sb.ToString(), False)
        End If

Open in new window

Hi,

I looked through this article previously, but your example really helps.

Unfortunately it still won't fire on either load or postback unless I use my url -

"//s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ra-4d75gfhdgfhdgfh"

but then this again won't fire on postback.

Anything spring to mind?

Cheers
Karl
