Hello Ram,

a common approach is from javascript set an hidden field, then issue a postback. On the server-side, handle the post-back.

Feel free to go deeper in your question.

That's an option (Request.Form i mean, as you are POST-ing back...). More commonly, make your input field runat-server, and you'll see it on the server-side as any other server control.

I'm afraid there is a misunderstanding here. Javascript executes client-side, while C# executes on the server. When you issue a RegisterXYZScript, that *will* output some javascript to the page upon rendering, and there you are on the client. From client you need to post-back to get to the server. You cannot intermix them...

For a very long running process, you might think of starting an async process on the server (i mean in another thread, or similar) and straight return your request to the client. Then the client will poll the server to see whether the background process has finished or not. This might be a self refreshing page, or an AJAX callback, etc. etc.

So, you are trying to do something not very trivial...

do you mean we cannt stop the execution of the server code based on the cilent side javascript values?

can you explain me which code is executed first like server side or client side?

i have added a attribute like "onclick " to the button and also server side event onclick also added.

but when ever i ran the application first its executing the javascript and then going to sever side code.

can you let me know why the execution happens like this as per my view after execution of the server side the page will send to the client then the client side code will be executed.

could you please explain me this?

or any related links or articles  would help me out.

Because that is the process known as post back communications.

It goes client side generates the page, client submits page (can be a submit, or an interaction with a web form object like a checkbox with auto-postback = true), then server generates the page on the server side (server side on_load event fired), then the server side handles any specific client side object events(like an onClick eveny), then the server posts the information to the client, and finally the client load the information from the server.  Then the process repeats.

To break away from this fundamental form of communication is when you get into ajax (or known as Atlas in the microsoft world)

Instead of using an <asp:button> try using an old fashion Html button
<input type="button" onclick="YourClick('MyButton','args')">

function YourClick(context, args)
    __doPostBack(context, args);

on the server
controlName = Request.Params.Get("__EVENTTARGET");
arguments = Request.Params.Get(__EVENTARGUMENT");

This will insure that your client script runs before the postback.  You could also make a call to the callback function or create an XMLHTTP request object if you don't want to do a postback, but those are beyond the scope of your question.
