Hello,
I the following script. How do i include it at the bottom of my page using code -behind in aspx.


 private string loadDropboxScript()
        {
              string key = ApiKeySettings.DropboxAppKey;
              StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
              sb.Append("<script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.dropbox.com/static/api/2/dropins.js' id='dropboxjs' data-app-key=");
              sb.Append("'").Append(key).Append("'").Append("></script>\n");
              return sb.ToString();
        }

Open in new window

?
I tried to used  ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript .
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, this.GetType(), "dropboxdriveScript", loadDropboxScript(), true);

Open in new window


However, it  adds  the script but it place it within  another script type.. Is that valid?

<script type="text/javascript">
//<![CDATA[
<script type='text/javascript' src='https://www.dropbox.com/static/api/2/dropins.js' id='dropboxjs' data-app-key='mmmmmm'></script>

Open in new window


Here is what I tying to accomplish. I want to add dropbox.js to my page and a dropbox picker. However, this service is block in  some network.So, my page load for a while if Drop Box is not allow. I would like to only incur this penalty when the button is press or have include everything has been loaded

Thanks

Why do you need to add it from the code behind?

If there's something you want to use from the code behind you can simply inject it with the server side tags :
<%=...  %>

Open in new window

Thanks for your response..

I have an application that uses dropbox. However, on some networks this application block. I want to check if dropbox in enable  and then add the script. Otherwise my application just 'hang' until timeout is reach

That validation is done in Javascript or server side?

If it's in Javascript just add it to the script before performing the action.
If it's server side, consider adding a flag on an hidden field for instance, that you can use client side to know if you can connect to Dropbox or not.

This way the script can always be there, and you can even move it to a js file like it should.
