Disable submit but keep onclick

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 20, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

This is what I have:

<input id="deleteBtn" type="image" src="/Content/Images/deleteRecord_up.png" onclick="javascript:confirmDeleteRecord(id) ;" />     

It is an button of type image that has an onclick with it.  When I click it the "confirmDeleteRecord" runs great but then the form submits which I don't want.  I tried using "onmouseout=this.disabled=true" but then I can't even get the "confirmDeleteRecord" to run.

How do I keep the onclick functionality but disable it as far as submitting the form?

thanks in advance.

I thought this would be simple... Trying to create a login does an ajax check before submit


I have the standard .net login control that is working.  (Still learning .net after 15yrs of classic)

What I want to do is OnButtonClick run a javascript function (to do an ajax call to the db to check if login is valid or not) and if it returns true, then submit the form normally, else don't submit. The piece that I can't figure out, is how to correctly override the default click even to hit my JS routine and then submit the form properly afterwards.

Thanks ahead of time

Use Membership but bypass / disable password usage for users


I have an application that does LDAP authentication. The authentication is done on the code behind page of my Login.aspx page. Once the user passes LDAP authentication, a cookie is set and I redirect:

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(UserName.Text, False)

I would like to setup membership in my application and keep track of some user information. But due to company security requirements, I cannot store user passwords on my application. That must stay on the LDAP server only.

Is there a way to store users but disable password storage on the aspnet_membership table?

any help??

Formview1 Submit submitting Formview2



I have a FormView control (FormView1) on a Panel next to another Panel containing another FormView (FormView2) on the same page.

Both FormViews share the same datasource.

FormView2 has Required Field Validation controls within it and FormView1 does not.

Both FormViews are set for DefaultMode of insert.

When I submit FormView1 the Validation controls within FormView2 fire and prevent submission, which of course I don't want to happen. I need both FormViews to function independent of the other.

Is it improper to have two FormViews on the same page and sharing the same datasource?

Thank you in advance.


ModalPopup/UpdatePanel from codebehind, inconsistent behavior onClick


First post bear with me please:

I have a simple form with a list of linkbuttons, each fires the same onclick event which sets an indicator image.  I have a dummy button with style="display:none" which I have set as the TargetControlID of the modal.

onClick event from the imagebutton, the modal is shown via modal.Show().  The cancel button inside the modalpopup fires an event which turns off the indicator image and hides the modal via modal.Hide(). 

The events fire perfectly, it's very simple!  Although after doing some testing I noticed the modalpopup is not presented after the 6-10th cycle of clicking the open event, then clicking cancel.  The grey background appears but it is behind the main panel and the modal is either presented behind this or is just simply not displaying. 

I spent hours researching various methods, implemented the CancelControlID to see if it was somehow tied to my call of modal.Hide() that fails.

This occurs with an updatepanel only.  The behaviour is much cleaner this way, so I would hope to be able to implement this.  I have basically eliminated everything but these two events!  Please help

Disable filtering on a Dynamic Data list view.


I have an entity set of NotificationTemplates, and each one of these has a collection of zero-many SmsTemplate entities. When editing or viewing a NotificationTemplate, I have a link to View SMS Templates. That link takes me to a List view for the SmsTemplates entity set, filtered for the NotificationTemplate I was viewing.

How can I prevent the user changing this filter to show SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate? That is, I want the filter, but it must be read only. The drop-down just mustn't drop down, it must just display the name of the NotificationTemplate that these SmsTemplates belong to. To view SmsTemplates for another NotificationTemplate, the user must click View SMS Templates from that other template.

This was originally asked by myself on SatckOverflow at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3514373/disable-filtering-on-a-dynamic-data-list-view

HTML Table Disable


I have a HTML Table that I use to place the control in so they display nicely on my Web Form.  I also use the Disable method to keep unwanted users from editing those controls based on their log in information, however I still want the information to be displayed for their review.

The information is displayed for example in the Text Boxes, however when they hit Enter on the form because the table is disabled for some reason the information is lost when I do my update to the SQL Server (the text box shows "")?

Why is it I can see the information on the screen, but the text box shows empty when hitting enter on the form?

Onclientclik works fine, but not onclick :(  Any help please?

Checkbox disable/enable


I hope someone can be kind enough to help/advise me with this.

I have a web form with multiple checkboxes on it , with one of the checkboxes as the main (controlling) checkbox.  By this I mean that when this main checkbox is checked then all the other checkboxes need to be disable and when its unchecked these other checkboxes need to be enable.

I've found (plenty of) code to do this in javascript but i would really prefer to to it in vb(.net), if possible.

I hope all this makes sense to you.


Data lost on submit


Dear Experts,

I have a modal popup and a GridView in it. The GridView is populated programmatically, i.e. I use .DataBind(). I can enter data into some of the GridView's controls. After I press Submit, I expect to do something with the entered data. But in the button press handler, the GridView is empty. I realize that I have to DataBind() again in the handler, but how can I preserve the data the user enters?


Switch views when opening a form depending on submit locations?



I would like to know it was possible to switch views when opening a form depending on where the form has been submitted.

I am submitting my form to library A and library B and want to be able to open it in view 1 in library A and in view 2 in library B.

Is there a way to set some url conditions in the open behavior rules?

Thanks a lot!

Mission Impossible? Use Javascript to Disable a Multi-Line Rich Text Field


Hey Community,

Here's a tough one that I have struggled with and so far have not been able to find an answer for - how do you use Javascript to disable a multi-line rich text field.  I have customized a SP Edit form by adding a CEWP.  In the CEWP I have added the Javascript below (only a partial code sample provided) to disable several fields in the form.  The code works fine for single line text fields but it does not work for multi-line rich text fields.  Any suggestions?

<script language="javascript">
//This runs the function when the form first loads

//This locks the fields the users should not modify
function lockFields()
  var theInputTFTitle = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("Input","TextField","Title");
  theInputTFTitle.readOnly = true;
  theInputTFTitle.style.color = 'gray';
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputTFTitle.value);//for testing

   var theInputDDLReplyStatus = getTagFromIdentifierAndTitle("select","DropDownChoice","Reply Status");
  theInputDDLReplyStatus.disabled = true;
  //alert(" Value: " + theInputDDLReplyStatus.value);//for testing

  var theInpu

Multiple Submit Connection Problem


Hello everyone,

I have an InfoPath form with two Submit Connections. One of them is a regular submit connection to a SharePoint Document Library. The other is a submit connection to the UpdateListItems web Service.

I have one button using rules that submits the forms fields to the Document Library. Some of those fields have data validation rules like entry must be four digits, and field cannot be blank.

The other submit button uses rules to submit an XML template to the UpdateListItems Template. My problem is that even though this second button does not have the first submit connection as an action, the form will still check all of the forms fields to see if they violate the validation rules before it will submit to the Web Service.

How do I tell InfoPath to ignore the validation rules when I only want to submit to the Web Service? I want the user to be able to enter data into the XML template fields and submit to the Web Service, even if some of the rest of the fields are blank. Right now if any of the other fields fail validation it prevents submittal to the web service even if the fields that failed validation are not being submitted to the web service.

Thanks for any advice that can be offered,
Bill Hurt

Disable VS2005 Undo?


Does anyone know if there is a way to disable the Undo feature within VS2005?  I searched through the options but nothing jumped out at me.


Disable links based on membership



I've somehow managed to successfully get Membership working on a test site I'm playing with (learning!). I've reached a point where I can redirect users to another page if they do not have the required level of membership - using the allow feature in a web.config within a folder.

What I would like to do now is create a main menu of links (a back office menu visible after the use has logged in), and disable a link if they do not have access to view that page. Is this complex? I'd be grateful for any sample code to get me started.

Many thanks
