Client-side scripting is code that is executed on the client side, such as JavaScript. Server-side scripting is code that is executed on the server, such as VB, VB.NET, C#, or J#. For a better definition of server-side scripting and when it's necessary, please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server-side_scripting

Hello chandrasekhar,

> why the server side scripting is necessary, inorder to write the client side scripting.

this is usually needed when attaching event handlers to server controls, since you don't have the corresponding attributes on the control declaration in page. Another reason is registering startup and client scripts.

Anyway writing client scripts from the server side should be reduced to the minimum, not to mix layers, so, in instance, when you register a script, instead of outputting a complete function, you are usually better putting the function as usual on the client-side, and just outputting a call to it...

Hope this help, and welcome to these forums! -LV
