Calling Button Click Event From Another Event With Client Side Code

Hi All,

I am trying to call a (server control) button's click event from another event where the button has a client side code as well. I defined my button as:


<asp:Button runat="server" id="button1" onclick="button1_Click" onclientclick="someJSFunction(); return false;" text="..." />


The button1_Click event does not contain any server side code, I just need a reference for my other event to call to, like so:


void OtherEvent(object sender, EventArgs e) {
button1_Click(sender, e);


What happens is that button1_Click is being fired but the client side code is not. What I want to happen is be able to call programmatically the button1_Click event and fire the client side code attached to it and not post back the page - the reverse of what is happening. Makes sense?

I may be missing something but why not just remove the onclick="button1_Click" from the Button?

Hi Steven,

I already did that (remove the onclick="button1_Click" attribute of the button) but still the client side code won't fire when programmatically calling it (button1_Click). Ofcourse the button1_Click itself fires.

To make it much clearer, what I want to happen is from another event/method, I call on it's (the button's) Click event (programmatically) as if the user pressed or clicked the button. I do this so that I can call the client side code that I attached to the button. The button1_Click does not have any server side code, it is just there so that I can attach a client side code and be able to access it via another event calling the method. Sort of a dummy control since the client side code always returns false. The important thing is the client side code fires.

So, the following is what I have:

aspx page:


<asp:Button runat="server" id="button1" onclientclick="return someJSFunction();" />

 function someJSFunction() {
  // do something here...
  return false;

aspx.cs page


protected void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) {
// Does not do anything } void SomeOtherEvent(object sender, EventArgs e) {
// Call button's click event to mimic user clicking on the button.
// Click supposed to fire client side code (someJSFunction)
button1_Click(sender, e); }

Your explanation still doesn't help but I get the impression, from the comments in your code, that you want to call the client-side, javascript function from the server. The only way to do this is to include a client-side method call. For example:

void SomeOtherEvent(object src, EventArgs e)
    ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(typeof(Page), "someJSFunction", "someJSFunction();", true);
The button is completely unnecessary.
