Strange issue with ImageButton with no ImageUrl

    I realize that there is no good reason for an image button to not have an
    ImageUrl but I have just hit upon a strange problem when converting an
    ASP.NET 1.1 web application to 2.0. An asp:ImageButton control without an
    ImageUrl contained within a WebForm causes a redirect to the default
    document in IIS. This behaviour did not occur in .NET 1.1.

    This can easily be duplicated by the following steps :-

    1. Create a new ASP.NET Web Application project in VS2005.
    2. Add a new Web Form (WebForm1.aspx)
    3. In the existing Default.aspx add a standard asp:Button to the form and
    add a standard on click event handler containing a simple
    Response.Redirect("WebForm1.aspx");
    4. Add an asp:ImageButton to WebForm1.aspx, e.g <asp:ImageButton
    ID="ImageButton1" runat="server" />
    5. Set two breakpoints, one on each Page_Load method of both Web Forms.

    Debug the application, you will notice it breakpoints on the Default.aspx
    page load and on the postback when you press the button. This is fine. It
    will then breakpoint on the page load of WebForm1.aspx and *THEN* redirect
    back to Default.aspx and break on the page load event again. The final
    breakpoint does not occur if the ImageUrl is completed or if no default
    document has been setup in IIS.

    Thanks

    this is standard browser behavior. any img, script, css, etc, with a src=""
    or missing, will use the default path as the url. iis will usually redirect
    to default.aspx (or whatever is the default).

    Thanks for the reply Bruce, that does make sense now.

    The generated html is different between the versions of Visual Studio, I now
    see the src="" has been added :-

    VS2003
    <input type="image" name="ImageButton1" id="ImageButton1" alt="" border="0"
    />

    VS2005
    <input type="image" name="ImageButton1" id="ImageButton1" src=""
    style="border-width:0px;" />

    That explains it.

    Thanks

    Gary
