Why Is OnBeforeUnload Firing Twice With LinkButton?

Feb 10, 2010

I have the following Jquery function to notify the user with a prompt when they have unsaved changes (similar to how SO does it) and are trying to leave the current screen.

<!-- in my aspx page -->
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
window.onbeforeunload = function()
if (HasPendingUpdates())
return "Changes you have made will not be saved.";

This works as expected and shows the message box when the user tries to click a href to browse away or use the back button etc. The problem I am having is that one of my links is a asp:LinkButton because it needs to fire off some server side code before leaving the page. When the user clicks this LinkButton they get the prompt twice.


User clicks the LinkButton
Prompt appears and user clicks the cancel button.
Prompt disappears and user is still on screen. GOOD.
User clicks the LinkButton
Prompt appears and clicks the OK button.
Prompt disappears and the same prompt shows again.
User clicks OK again.
Prompt disappears and user moves to the next screen and all is good.

So why am I getting the second prompt??? How is the OnBeforeUnload firing twice?

I've placed a link button control on my web form and added the click event to the code behind automatically), but I've placed a break point and it never hits it. If I do the same thing with a button it works just fine.I've searched for this problem and none of the results seem to answer why mine isn't working. Maybe I'm just missing something?

Linkbutton Not Firing RowCommand Gridview UpdatePanel UserControl?

Jun 23, 2010

I have a problem with my Linkbutton which is not firing the RowCommand of my gridview.

Just for an Idea what I am doing is a follows:

1. WebForm

WebForm hosts UserControl_A.

2. UserControl_A = UpdatePanel + Panels + Gridview1 + CollapsiblePanelExtender

Updatepanel of UserControl_A consists of multiple Panels.

Each Panel consists of a Gridview1.

Upon each Panel expand UserControl_B is loaded.

3. UserControl_B = Details View & a couple of Linkbuttons in GridView2

Upon clicking the Linkbutton, unexpectedly it makes a refresh for the entire UserControl_A.

But it does not fire the RowCommand of its parent GridView2.

AJAX :: Accordion With LinkButton OnClick Event Not Firing?

Apr 6, 2010

I have two problems with a databound AJAX Accordion. The Accordion looks like this:


The code behind has this subroutine:



The first problem I'm having is that this subroutine is not fired (I have a breakpoint in it) when the LinkButton inside the accordion is clicked. The Page_Load event fires and there is no error message, javascript errors, etc, but nothing else happens.

The second problem is that I'm not sure how to go backwards with the databind. I want to be able to make use of the UpdateMethod in the ObjectDataSource because I also have textboxes inside the accordion. I will have a Save subroutine that can be called but I'm not sure what code to put inside it.

C# - LinkButton Event Not Firing When <form Action> Attribute Is Set

Jan 27, 2011

I have a form action in an ASCX page set to an external URL

<form id="fLoginForm" runat="server" action="http://external.url" method="post" defaultbutton="bSignIn">
Inside there is a standard ASP linkbutton
<asp:LinkButton CssClass="btn" ID="bSignIn" runat="server" Text="Sign In" OnClick="bSignIn_Click" />

The event "bSignin_Click" never gets fired when I have ction="http://external.url" set on the form tag. However when I remove the action, it works as expected. I thought for runat='server' forms, the form would always post back? I need to read the URL from the action attrib and then redirect to it with some hidden input values also in the page.

Web Forms :: Click Event Not Firing On Dynamically Created LinkButton

Jun 22, 2010

I am adding numerical page links for paging of a repeater. I have used on of the numerical paging samples as my base. It works fine if I have less pages than my maximum total links. Eg if I have 11 pages, but only showing page 1-10 plus a next for the 11th, I get an error about duplicate control ids. I changed my control id to use a Guid in the string to keep it unque, after making this change the event handler never fires

private LinkButton createButton(string title, int index)
LinkButton lnk = new LinkButton();
//lnk.ID = System.Guid.NewGuid().ToString("N") + "_" + index.ToString();//Event does not fire if I set ID with Guid

Web Forms :: Dynamically Creating Linkbutton Inside Gridview - Postback Not Firing?

May 31, 2007

I need to dynamically create a linkbutton within certain rows of a gridview. I am using the following code:


The problem is that the hyperlinks appear as required, but when clicked, they do not fire the skillLevelClicked sub. I think this is because the controls are generated and then forgotten about because they occur within the gridview lifecycle.

Web Forms :: OnClick Event Is Not Firing For LinkButton And User Control Is Disappearing

Dec 30, 2010

I am using the following code to load user control on to ASPX Page, which under a Master Page:


The user control name is passed as a parameter on the URL.

Inside the user, there is a LinkButton. The link button has a simple server side code for OnClick event.

Everything is working fine on the production machine, but, on the Development machine, I can see incorrect behaviour. I have started making some development changes on the Development Machine since several months back, and it will be very difficult to find out what caused the problem.

When I click the LinkButton inside the user control, the user control is removed from the parent page, and the OnClick event of the LinkButton is not firing.

I did debug, and found out that after I click on the LinkButton inside the user control, then the Page Load events for the master page and the ASPX page are working fine, and the IsPostBack is set to true, but the OnClick event of the LinkButton is not firing.

Forms Data Controls :: LinkButton OnClick Inside ItemTemplate Of A DataList Not Firing

Apr 14, 2010

Very new to ASP.NET (using C# behind) and am having trouble figuring out the following scenario. I have a DataList that is populated (code below) and wanted each cell to be clickable. When the cell is clicked I wanted to know the unique ID for that cell. In my code behind, my OnClick method looks like this:


However I never get there. It seems as if the linkbutton always refers to some javascript callback function and just reloads my form. Am I using the wrong control for what I want to do? From this click I want to look up more information from the Key (will roll up the datalist or set visible to false, then supply the new data on the same page)DataList:

Custom Server Controls :: Custom TreeNode With LinkButton Not Firing Event

Feb 10, 2009

I have an issue that has me really scratching my head. I am trying to create a custom treeview control that contains custom tree nodes. The custom treenode control allows for a panel to be created asPostText of a node. The idea is to add controls to the panel. One such control that will be added to the panel is a LinkButton. The issue I am finding is that I can not get the Command event or even the click event of the linkButton to fire. I am not seeing any href and javascript in the source. There are mutiple tree nodes/panels with link buttons.

Web Forms :: TreeViewcontrol And OnBeforeUnload?

Sep 28, 2010

In one of my applications, i created the left navigation menu using treeviewcontrol. Each and every node in the treeview is calling a URL in the application.Content pages are dynamically created ASP.NET controls.There is no submit or save buttons in these pages. When the user finished entering the data and go to another link in the tree structure, the data need to be saved in the database and go to the next link.I tried this using OnBeforeUnload and Document.form1.submit, the aspnet form is not submitting, so there is no postback. I also tried __dopostback method call from the javascript. Still not able to get it working.

Determine Which Control In Window.onbeforeunload In Javascript Caused Event

Mar 7, 2011

I have set up in javascript:

var onBeforeUnloadFired = false;
window.onbeforeunload = function (sender, args)
if(!onBeforeUnloadFired) {
onBeforeUnloadFired = true;
window.event.returnValue = 'You will lose any unsaved changes!'; //IE
else {
return 'You will lose any unsaved changes!'; //FX
windows.setTimeout("ResetOnBeforeUnloadFired()", 1000);
function ResetOnBeforeUnloadFired() {
//Need this variable to prevent IE firing twice.
onBeforeUnloadFired = false;

I'm trying to achieve an edit screen where the user is warned before navigating away. It works fine except I get the pop up for normal post backs of button clicks. I'm hoping to avoid this so I'm figuring if I could determine which button was pressed it would work. Does anybody know how to determine which button was pressed in the indows.onbeforeunload? Alternatively anyone know a better approach to what I'm trying to achieve?

LinkButton's OnClick Does Not Fire In IE8 / Why Can't IE8 Accept Anything Within LinkButton

Oct 20, 2010

The following works just fine in Chrome.

<asp:LinkButton runat="server" ID="lbEdit" OnClick="lbEdit_Click">
<button type="button" class="edit">

And here is the CSS for button and its subclass.


As you can see, nothing special; just colors and beautiful things.

I click on the blue Edit button and it fires the OnClick postback just fine.... in Chrome! But if I do the same in IE8, it just does nothing; doesn't even detect a click.

I removed the tag and kept just the word "Edit", and it works just fine in IE8 as a simple underlined link; the postback fires.

So, Why can't IE8 accept anything within LinkButton?

Whether I add the handler during itemdatabound or I add the handler within the repeater itself, it doesn't seem to matter...the event itself doesn't fire. The AutoPostback itself seems to fire, but the event itself doesn't.

IHttpModule.BeginRequest Firing 2X, Application_BeginRequest Firing 1X?

Feb 2, 2010

I'm running VS 2008 and .NET 3.5 SP1.

I want to implement hit tracking in an HttpModule in my ASP.NET app. Pretty simple, I thought. However, the BeginRequest event of my HttpModule is firing twice for each page hit. The site is very simple right now...no security, just a bit of database work. Should log one row per page hit. Why is this event firing twice?

Moreover, IHttpModule.BeginRequest actually fires a different number of times for the first page hit when running for the first time (from a closed web browser)...3 times when I'm hitting the DB to provide dynamic data for the page, and only 1 time for pages where the DB isn't hit. It fires 2 times for every page hit after the first one, regardless of whether or not I'm touching the DB.

It's interesting to note that Application_BeginRequest (in Global.asax) is always firing only once.
