Button event lost after window.open

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


I have a form with a field which could be populated manually (by typing in it) or through a window.open popup window. The user just have to select the value in the window and it's written in the field of the parent window (all in javascript). 

When I enter the value manually, all is fine. However, when I do it through the popup window the value is correctly written in the parent window and the popup is closed, but the click event of the submit button is not raised when i submit the form. The Page Load event is raised and the IsPostBack is set to false.

What could be the problem?

Unexpected window.open Event


I have a small amount of experience with ASP.Net and I have inherited a project that has gone through many hands. I'm not sure if anyone can help me on this, but here goes. 

I have an .aspx page (Home.aspx) with an image button (ibEdit) and a link button (btnEditExpiration). The image button was created by another developer before I inherited the project. It is designed to reveal a hidden part of the page, with fields to edit customer information. I have added the link button to open another form  (EditExpirationDates.aspx), populated with information from Home.aspx 

When I click on ibEdit, everything works as expected. When I click on btnEditExpiration everything works as expected. The problem arises after I click on the btnEditExpiration button. Thereafter, every time I click on ibEdit , it's as if both click events fire and the EditExpirationDates.aspx form opens .

If I close the page and reopen it everything works fine until I click the btnEditExpiration.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Open a new Window on Button_click event


Hello, I am learning Visual Studio 2008 on the fly.

I'd like to get a help on how to open a new window when the report is opened for view.


1. Populate the asp:DropDownList to fill PDF file names

2. Select the report and click asp:Button

3. Pop a new window to browse the PDF file.

1 and 2 are working fine but for #3 - the report shows up but I can't goback to Home page unless i kill the window and restart the App or use the back button on IE.

asp:button Click event (inside a repeater) lost on postback.


 I have been writing C# code for about 3 years now and have never had this happen.

I am using an asp:repeater (inside an update panel):

<asp:Repeater runat="server" ID="rptRedFolderDocs" OnItemDataBound="rptDataBound">

inside the repeater I have a button with a click event with server side code.

When the page loads, the repeater is databound to a datatable popuplated from SQL connection.  The repeater is NOT bound on postback. I wanted the data to persist.
