Combining a server-side control with a client-side control!

Hi all,

I am trying to combine a server-side control with a client-side control.

I have created a listbox in both sides, the client-side control's code is:

<select size="4" name="lstFruit" id="Select1" ondblclick="lst_dblClick" visible="false">

<option value="Banana">Banana</option>

<option value="Apple">Apple</option>

<option value="Mango">Mango</option>

<option value="Orange">Orange</option>


The other one is the server-side control which has this code:


I wanted to add the ondblClick attribute to the server-side control and i used this code in the page load to do it: lstITems is the server-side control i have created which hasn't the dblClick attribute

Me.lstITems.Attributes.Add("OndblClick", "lst_dblClick")

I made sure that the attribute has been added to the server-side control, but its not calling the required method which is:

<script runat="server" >

Protected Sub lst_dblClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

lblResult.Text = "You double clicked this item!"

End Sub


Whenever i double click the item in the listbox i got error in page!

any idea how to solve this problem?

Best regards,

The only events available for a ListBox AFAIK are:

Also, the way that you're attaching the event:
     Me.lstITems.Attributes.Add("OndblClick", "lst_dblClick")
makes it a client-side event and that's why you're getting the script error.

The proper way to attach a server-side event is:
     Protected Sub lst_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles lst.SelectedIndexChanged

     AddHandler lst.SelectedIndexChanged, AddressOf lst_SelectedIndexChanged

web forms with client and server side controls??

Anyone got any ideas why and what work arounds are possible. Regards, Graham. once a form element is inside a <FORM> tag, you can no longer refer to it by its ID alone. you have to refer to it by formname.elementid or document.all.elementid. use document.getElementById(yourtextboxid) to get a ref to the element in the form. using this allows u to bypass the formn...

Server-side versus Client-side controls?
Hi, I'm new to ASP.NET, and I was wondering how negligible the performance impact of using server-side controls over client-side controls is? Should I avoid using server-side controls and use client-side ones whereever I can? Or should I not care? From apurely aesthetic point-of-view, it would be nice to use mostly all server-side controls to keep everything consistent. What are your thoughts on this? Thanks.

Server Side control invoking a Client Side event
I need to figure out how to get a server side control to process the "OnMouseOver" event. Since server side controls do not have the onmouseover event associated with them, how would you make for example, a DropDownList have a "OnMouseOver" event associate with it?
