autopostback - javascript intercept and cancel

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Susan van Houen, Jul 17, 2003.

  1. Hi All,

    How do I intercept an autopostback on the client side
    and prevent it from executing the submit?

    In classic ASP I used to intercept the on_submit and

    return false;

    but it doesn't seem to work anymore.

    Any ideas?

  2. Hi Susan,

    Please add the javascript function to your server control
    as given below.
    Button1.Attributes.Add("onclick", "return FunctionName

    Now put the function in html section. If success then you
    can return true else false.

    So it wont submit the page if client side function fails.

    Let me know if you ned furtehr help.

    The reason that doesn't work, is because by setting AutoPostBack to true,
    that generates an onselectedindexchanged handler, which just submits the
    form. So the one you created, just get ignored.

    I would instead suggested that you turn autopostback to false, and just keep
    your handler. This handler should then sometimes manually submit the form by
    calling its submit method.
