You need to output -from the click event of your server-side button- some
javascript that will call your javascript function,

Response.Write("<script language='javascript'>yourfunction()</script>");

there are better ways to output javascript (like RegisterClientScriptBlock,

Call javascript from a webform control

You can just put the client side JavaScript on your ASPX page like you would
for an HTML file and then use the expando properties on the button control
to add the "onclick='myClientSideFunction(this);'" to the button control.


Aspx page --

Inherits="Compile_Test.WebForm1" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
  <meta name="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 7.0">
  <meta name="CODE_LANGUAGE" Content="C#">
  <meta name="vs_defaultClientScript" content="JavaScript (ECMAScript)">
  <meta name="vs_targetSchema"
  <script language="javascript">
   function myClientSideFunction(obj)
    alert("test message");
  <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
   <asp:Button id="Button1" runat="server" Text="With attached client side
   <asp:Label id="Label1" runat="server">Initial value</asp:Label>
   <asp:Button id="Button2" runat="server" Text="Regular Server Event

Code Behind:

using System.Drawing;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.SessionState;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;

namespace Compile_Test
 /// <summary>
 /// Summary description for WebForm1.
 /// </summary>
 public class WebForm1 : System.Web.UI.Page
  protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Label Label1;
  protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button Button2;
  protected System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button Button1;

  public WebForm1()
   Page.Init += new System.EventHandler(Page_Init);

  private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    Label1.Text = "my client side script ran then posted back to the

   // Put user code to initialize the page here

  private void Page_Init(object sender, EventArgs e)
   // CODEGEN: This call is required by the ASP.NET Web Form Designer.

  #region Web Form Designer generated code
  /// <summary>
  /// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
  /// the contents of this method with the code editor.
  /// </summary>
  private void InitializeComponent()
   this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.Page_Load);



As you can see demonstrated by this code, the client side function is called
and then the page still posts back to the server.

How do you implement client side javaScript on a textBox control like on the
onKeyPress event from the VS IDE.

This is probably a dumb question but here goes.  I am attempting to kick off
a javascript function from the onClick event on an asp:Button.  When i write
it the way i am used to writing it, i get the following output.   Any Ideas?
