asp_databases thread: onClick


Message #1 by "Warren S. Wyght" <wswyght@t...> on Thu, 06 Jul 2000 22:33:23 -0600
I know this is not ASP DataBase specific but I am building a ASP site that

uses an Access database and I do have a problem.



When I put in a

<input type=button . . . . onClick="go">

I can not get any results unless I make this be in JavaScript function. I 

am trying to find out if there is a ASP way of using the onClick event for 

a button. I have look in my Beginning ASP Databases and in my ASP in a 

Nutshell book and can not find anything.



I have inherited a site that uses frames while in the frames I can 

navigate but I can not get Netscape to recognize the "history.back(1)" or 

history.go(-1) commands so I thought I would just use the 

Response.Redirect "somepage.asp" command but I can not get this to happen 

on the click of a button.



Can anyone help?



Also, can I not use Response.Redirect outside of the body of the HTML 

document? At least it seems to be that I can not use it outside of the 

<body> </body>?

Warren:



You won't find any support for client-side events (i.e., onClick, onBlur,

onChange, etc.) in ASP because ASP is server-side and has no knowledge of

those events.  By the time those events take place, the ASP portion is over

and done with.



Second, Response.Redirect actually sends a redirect header to the browser

and the browser request the new page.  Since this is the case,

Response.Redirect must be called *before* any other headers are written to

the page.  The best way to ensure this happens is to buffer (Response.buffer

= True) your page content.

could you make the buttons images instead and use hyperlinks to navigate?
