Hi,


I have this button.

<asp:Button ID="btnUpdate" OnClientClick="return Validate(this, this.id);" class="btn btn-primary" runat="server" Text="Update" AutoPostBack="true" />

When the user clicks it - it runs a simple javascript.


function Validate(obj, objid) {

  // does some valiudation here then submits
        __doPostBack(objid, '');
    
}

Open in new window


My question is:    How do I get the button run my specific C# function after it has validated?

If OnClickClient has a return value of true then the codebehind OnClick event will fire. If OnClickClient is returned false then it won't.
If OnClickClient doesn't return anything the codebehind event will fire regardless. So you want..

<asp:Button runat="server" ID="btnConfirm" Text="Confirm" OnClick="btnConfirm_Click" />

<script language="javascript">
    function Validate() {
        return confirm('Save in db?');
    }
</script>

Open in new window


protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
   // set OnClientClick 
   btnConfirm.OnClientClick = "return Validate();";
}

protected void btnConfirm_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    //save something in database
}

Open in new window
