Hello ,
  How do I include some js code in mt ascx page?

In my ascx page I have a tag
<asp:Literal ID="ltrlTop" runat="server"></asp:Literal>

Open in new window


In my code behind (ascs,cs) file

 private string generatePreScript()
        {
            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            sb.Append("<script type='text/javascript'>");
            sb.Append("dataLayer.push({'event': 'pageview', 'pageview':'/vp/apply.html'}); ");
            sb.Append("</script>");
            return sb.ToString();
        }

Open in new window



I want set the ltrlTop  to the js value

tried  ltrlTop.Text = generateSuccesScript(); but I get dataLayer is undefine

Thanks for your help

Have you looked at ScriptManager.RegisterClientScriptBlock yet?

Just put this line of code where you want it to be called.  After the page is rendered the JS will fire.  

ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript (this, this.GetType(), "MyTopCodeBlock", "dataLayer.push({'event': 'pageview', 'pageview':'/vp/apply.html'}); ", true);

nope.  The registerStartupScript will inject (and fire) the javascript code.
