Passing parameter to code behind

Hi,

in the front end, I have the code like this
<asp:Button id="MoveAllbtn" onclick="MoveAllbtn_Click" CustomParameter="listBox1" runat="server" text=">>" />      

Since I want to use the same function, I want to pass the same of the listBox to the function.

In the code behind, I have the code
    protected void MoveAllbtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       

        foreach (var item in listBox1.Items.Cast<ListItem>().Reverse())
        {
              //some codes
        }
        
        string ID=e.CommandArgument.ToString();
	testBox.Text = ID;
        
    }

Open in new window


I am getting error

CS1061: 'System.EventArgs' does not contain a definition for 'CommandArgument' and no extension method 'CommandArgument' accepting a first argument of type 'System.EventArgs' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)


any ideas?  thanks

Convert object sender to button and then get its id

protected void MoveAllbtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       

        foreach (var item in listBox1.Items.Cast<ListItem>().Reverse())
        {
              //some codes
        }
        
       Button moveAllbtn=(Button)sender;
	testBox.Text = moveAllbtn.ID;
        
    }

Daniel Van Der WerkenIndependent ConsultantCommented:
This is how you fix that. However, I don't think this code is going to function the way you want.

 
   protected void MoveAllbtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

        foreach (var item in listBox1.Items.Cast<ListItem>().Reverse())
        {
            //string iText = item.Text;
        }

        System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button moveAllBtn = (System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button)sender;

        string ID = moveAllBtn.CommandArgument.ToString();
        testBox.Text = ID;
    }

Can you explain more on what you're trying to do?

Yes, as Daniel said use System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button

This will get the custom value you passed:

    protected void MoveAllbtn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

        foreach (var item in listBox1.Items.Cast<ListItem>().Reverse())
        {
            string iText = item.Text;
        }

        System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button moveAllBtn = (System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button)sender;

        AttributeCollection attributColl = moveAllBtn.Attributes;
        if (attributColl != null && attributColl.Count > 0 && attributColl["CustomParameter"] != null)
        {
            string myCustomParameterValue = attributColl["CustomParameter"];
        }

        string ID = moveAllBtn.CommandArgument.ToString();
        testBox.Text = ID;
    }

I am getting this error  (sorry)

Ramkisan JagtapLead DeveloperCommented:
Use System.Web.UI.AttributeCollection there

Daniel Van Der WerkenIndependent ConsultantCommented:
You'd have to cast. Seems strange. You're adding too many using statements.

        System.Web.UI.AttributeCollection attributColl = (System.Web.UI.AttributeCollection)moveAllBtn.Attributes;
        if (attributColl != null && attributColl.Count > 0 && attributColl["CustomParameter"] != null)
        {
            string myCustomParameterValue = attributColl["CustomParameter"];
        }

Get rid of your Windows using if you can.

Did you use my suggested code?
