IPostBackEventHandler question

    Hey All,

    I have a question about the IPostbackEventHandler interface. This
    interface's RaisePostBackEvent method has an eventArgument paramter. When my
    control has two buttons, I can use eventArgument to see what button was
    clicked, since I set their onclick attribute with the
    Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(...) method.

    When I then implement the IPostBackDataHandler interface, and call the
    Page.RegisterRequireRaiseEvent, the RaisePostBackEvent still gets called
    but the eventArgument parameter is always null? Why is this?

    I know I can use the postCollection parameter in
    IPostBackDataHandler::LoadPostData to check which button was clicked, but is
    wonder why the IPostbackEventHandler::RaisePostBackEvent is not usable for
    it anymore?

    It's implemented internally in Framework so that control getting registered
    via RegisterRequiresRaiseEvent won't get the event argument (null is
    passed). I suppose it is indeed presumed that it would be used in scenario
    when the data is available with other means (postCollection in your case).
    other is that Framework doesn't specifically keep track of the registered
    control at that point (it hap├ąpens after postback data has been processed)
