How to Pass Information from Server-Side Code to Client-Side Code in AJAX Control Extender?

Hi All,

For some reason I can't get the following to work: I have a custom AJAX Control Extender with a few getters and setters. I also have some images I want to use with the extender saved in a resource file. How to I make the respective image URLs available to the javascript of the extender? Are there any examples available?

Perhaps I can clarify a bit:

I have set up a getter and setter to set the image URL from the resource file:


1    [ExtenderControlProperty]
2    public string CoverURL
3    {
4    	get { return GetPropertyValue("CoverURL", ""); }
5    	set { SetPropertyValue("CoverURL", value); }
6    }
8    protected override void  OnInit(EventArgs e)
9    {
10   	this.CoverURL = Page.ClientScript.GetWebResourceUrl(this.GetType(), "AjaxControlExtender1.Resources.spacer.png");
11   	base.OnInit(e);
12   }

 And the following in the JS file:


1    get_CoverURL : function () { return this._CoverURL; },
2    set_CoverURL : function (value) { this._CoverURL = value; },

Is there a way to populate this._CoverURL on the client-side without using extender properties? I don't want to expose this as a property to the developer using my Control Extender.

Thank you for your post!

I think you can do this in GetScriptDescriptors method:

        protected override IEnumerable<ScriptDescriptor> GetScriptDescriptors(Control targetControl)
            ScriptBehaviorDescriptor descriptor = new ScriptBehaviorDescriptor("Samples.FocusBehavior", targetControl.ClientID);
            descriptor.AddProperty("CoverURL ", Page.ClientScript.GetWebResourceUrl(this.GetType(), "AjaxControlExtender1.Resources.spacer.png"));

            return new ScriptDescriptor[] { descriptor };

For more information, see

If you have further questionss,let meknow!
