Server side Generating and client side executing javascript


 This is a really basic question.  If one has a piece of code on the server side that generates some javascript, how do you inject and execute this script n the client side?  For example, I have a server side function that inserts a bunch of calls to a the javascript function foo(), such as foo(1); foo(2);.....How can insert these calls into my webpage so that they are executed on a periodic basic.  I assume I would use an script manager tag, and inside this tag I would have an update panel, but am unsure where to go after that.

you can insert javascript code to a page with the object "Page.ClientScript", e.g.:

if (!manager.IsClientScriptBlockRegistered("somecodefile.js"))
  manager.RegisterClientScriptInclude("somecodefile.js", scriptBlockName);
Or you create javascript inside the block:
private void CreateOnMouseOverHandler()
   ClientScriptManager manager = this.Page.ClientScript;
   if (!manager.IsClientScriptBlockRegistered(JS_ONMOUSEOVERHANDLER))
	StringBuilder scriptBlock = new StringBuilder();
	scriptBlock.Append("function " + JS_ONMOUSEOVERHANDLER + "(source, hiddenFieldName, offImage) {\r\n ");
	scriptBlock.Append("\ = 'hand';\r\n");
	scriptBlock.Append("\tvar checked = document.getElementById(hiddenFieldName);\r\n");
	scriptBlock.Append("\tif(checked.value == 'True' && offImage.length == 0)\r\n");
		and so on ...
	manager.RegisterClientScriptBlock(this.GetType(), JS_ONMOUSEOVERHANDLER, scriptBlock.ToString(), true);

Server-side execution vs. client-side
Hello, I am doing aspx web programming using vb in MS Visual Studio.  I am trying to make my program to when the user clicks on a button that my program launches another software package that we own (in this case the other software package is called Syteline).  The way that I am trying to accomplish this is via the CreateObject function route.  My program is running on the web server.  While I am sitting on the server that contains this Syteline application, I open up Internet Explorer and launch my web program.  When I click on the button, it gives me ...

Client side to execute server side code
I am maintaining an ASP.NET C# application written by someone else.  I am essentially a newbie to web development especially client side stuff.  Based on reading these forums I understand that I can't directly call a server side method from the client side and I have to use post pack in some way (using a webservice is not an option here).  My confusion comes from the HTML setup being used.The page has three frames; a header, body and footer.  Each frame is filled by it's own ASPX page.  The footer contains buttons for navigating to another page and some of the b...

Jscript, moving from client-side to server-side (.NET)
Hey all I’m working translating a web-app written in client-side Jscript to run on the server-side as JScript.NET. Without needing to get too specific, I am using Jscript because the original page aggregated raw data to produce statistical results (this was done dynamically based on user 'sort-by' options). The final output is an html report that can be emailed. Because this is currently being done on the client side, as the raw data grows the load-time grows as well (to the point that has almost become unusable). I’m posting here to see if anyone has any experi...

how to call server side function from client side javascript?
Hi all, I have a image button in the update panel. I would like to call a method from server side (not from webservice) to get the variable when Onclick on the image button is invoked. Is there any way that I can able to access this function from the client script? In using the UpdatePanel, in essence, you're already doing this because there will not be a full postback.  You can make an asynchronous call to your Click method of your ImageButton.  So, what do you want to do with this "variable"?Christopher Reed"The oxen are slow, but the earth is patient."...

Call server side function from client side javascript

When To Use Client Side vs Server Side vs AJAX
Before AJAX, it was fairly clear to me where to draw the line between functionality best performed server-side vs client-side.  For example, database access and data processing is done on the server, and basic field validation and other UI stuff is done on the client.  But now with AJAX implemented through Atlas, the line is blured.  I know what can be done... but what is the optimal way to design a web application using Atlas (in terms of what functionality should be implemented server-side versus client-side versus Ajax)?  What is the prev...

When to use client side varidation and server side varidation in .net?
In .net or classic web application we can varidate user data either on client isde or server side. How to select which side varidate to be used? Thanks!

Accessing server-side Datatable object from client-side javascript?
I am working on a control  that generates 2D charts (line,bar,pie,etc) using VML (for now) to draw the charts client-side. I am new to Javascript and still cant figure out how to access the data I need to graph from the javascript side.  I am currently using a Sys.Data.Datable on the client side as test data (building the table manually in javascript) and it works fine but I cannot figure how to pass a datatable from the server to the control extension behavior? I have read/seen code on the forums on how to do this using a web-service but I am really looking at a more generic approach where people could just bind a datatable to the control via the properties or in code so they can use their business logic layer functionality without having to write web-services. Let's say I have the name of the page object/variable holding the datatable (from properties of control) how would I access this object as a Sys.Data.Datatable in Javascript? Would I need to use some kind of converter? (hope I explained myself correctly and  this makes sense to someone hehe)   Thanks in Advance Pascal Hello Pascal: > I am new to Javascript and still cant figure out how to access the data I need to graph from the javascript side. Strictly speaking, you can't! It is the server-side code that renders client-side code, so what you can do is actually the reverse: write the datatable to javascript. Here is a topic that can give s...

Client vs. Server Side AJAX.Net
I am curious to know what the advantages and disadvantages are to using the client side declarative style AJAX controls vs. the server side.  I can't seem to think of too many reasons why I would go to the client side libraries when I can use all the power of ASP.NET (debugging, compiling, controls) and just wrap them in a UpdatePanel.   It also seems kind of counter productive to use the client side libraries because they don't utilize all the cool new developments of ASP.NET.  Am  I missing something?  Do the client AJAX libraries give you more flexibility?  Can the two, client and server libraries, be used together in one site?  Just curious to see how people are using one vs. the other and the benefits.  Thanks-   Hi,while everyone has got its opinions and feelings about the server-centric and client-centric programming models, IMHO one thing must be stated clearly: all the MS AJAX stuff is built on top of the client-side library, from the UpdatePanel to all the Control Toolkit extenders (that wrap special client-side components called "behaviors") to the drag and drop functionality, templated client controls, bindings, transformers, declarative syntax, animations...The power comes from the client-side library :) Alessandro Gallo | Blog | My book: ASP.NET AJAX In Action IMHO with the server side approach using UpdatePanel you have more productivity, because you can work as...

communication between client side(java script) and server side in .net project
I have a question which is, when building a .net project, we are able to use server side code and client side code(java script). How do they communicate? Thanks Client Side coding works with the WebBrowser. So when ever you write client side code you have to keep browser compatability in your mind and you have to code. Server Side code works with Web Server (IIS) and it's ASPNET ISAPI's. The won't directly communicate with each other. But using AJAX you can all server side code from Client Side! Example article on Ajax@ Thanks, May I say, when an user clicks a button, pop up box show up. are they communicate? When User Clicks on Button, a popup comming means, on that Button onclick event you might have some Client Side JavaScript. That's why you got popup. So are they communicate? As Browser will act for onclick event, message box shows up. Is click and Sever on sommunicating for this. No it's puerly client side event. But some times, when you click button it submitts to server and does some process as you needed and get's the results back, in that instance you can think browser send request to server and server process it and responds back to browser. hope I made it clear to you!  Sreedharhttp://www.w3coder.orgweblog
