Wierd Behavior of __doPostBack

Hello,

I am having some weird behavior between two machines...one
which is running the 1.1 framework and one which is
running 1.0. After opening a child form from a parent...I
update the database then call the __doPostBack function of
the window.opener. This has been working like a charm for
the last several months. Our ISP where we run the .NET app
recently upgraded to 1.1 of the framework. When I run my
app at the ISP...the __doPostBack function in the
window.opener dies with an "Undefined is not an object or
is NULL" message on this line:

theform.__EVENTTARGET.value = eventTarget.split("$").join
(":");

I have enclosed the entire __doPostBack function below.

I DO NOT get this error when running on my development
machine...anyone have any ideas at all...I am at a loss.
When I deploy I am compiling against the 1.0
framework...so can't see how...even if the ISP is running
1.1 as well...that it would matter.

Paul

theform = document.forms["Form1"];
}
else {
theform = document.Form1;
}
theform.__EVENTTARGET.value =
eventTarget.split("$").join(":");
theform.__EVENTARGUMENT.value =
eventArgument;
theform.submit();
}

Hello Paul,
The way you are implementing the postback is highly not recommended.

This is accomplished by using two methods:
- RegisterClientScriptBlock
- GetPostBackEventReference

RegisterClientScriptBlock allows ASP.NET server controls to emit
client-side script blocks in the Page.
The client-side script is emitted just after the opening tag of the Page
object's <form runat= server> element.The script block is
emitted as the object that renders the output is defined, so you must
include both tags of the <script> element.

Please refers to the following documentation regarding
RegisterClientScriptBlock
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/cpref/html/
frlrfSystemWebUIPageClassRegisterClientScriptBlock Topic.asp


GetPostBackEventReference obtains a reference to a client-side script
function that causes, when invoked, the server to post back to the page.

Please refers to the following documentation regarding
GetPostBackEventReference
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...us/cpref/html/
frlrfsystemwebuipageclassgetpostbackeventreference topic.asp

I am including below the sample where the DropDown List Click Client Event
will Post to the server and then a call a server side code.

===============
WebForm1.aspx
===============
<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false"
Codebehind="WebForm1.aspx.vb" Inherits="CustomerDemosVB.WebForm1" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

<HEAD>
<title>WebForm1</title>
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 7.0">
<meta name="CODE_LANGUAGE" content="Visual Basic 7.0">
<meta name="vs_defaultClientScript" content="JavaScript">
<meta name="vs_targetSchema"

<body MS_POSITIONING="GridLayout">
<form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
Please Click on the DropDown List <br>
<asp:dropdownlist onclick="myfunc()" id="DropDownList1" runat="server"
AutoPostBack="True">
<asp:ListItem Value="One">One</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="Two">Two</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="Three">Three</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="Four">Four</asp:ListItem>
</asp:dropdownlist>

</form>
</body>
</HTML>

=================
WebForm1.aspx.vb
=================

Public Class WebForm1
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Protected WithEvents LinkButton1 As System.Web.UI.WebControls.LinkButton
protected WithEvents DropDownList1 as
System.Web.UI.WebControls.DropDownList

#Region " Web Form Designer Generated Code "

'This call is required by the Web Form Designer.
<System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThrough()> Private Sub
InitializeComponent()

End Sub

Private Sub Page_Init(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Init
'CODEGEN: This method call is required by the Web Form Designer
'Do not modify it using the code editor.
InitializeComponent()
End Sub

#End Region

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

Page.RegisterClientScriptBlock("ClientScript","<sc ript
language=javascript>function myfunc(){alert('DropDown clicked. Now calling
server-side function');" + _
Page.GetPostBackEventReference(DropDownList1) + "}</script>")

if Page.IsPostBack
Response.Write("This is server side code. <br>")
End if
End Sub

Private Sub LinkButton1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles LinkButton1.Click
Response.Write("This is server side code. You passed the value ["
& Request.Form("__EVENTARGUMENT") & "]<br>")

End Sub
Private Sub DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As
System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles
DropDownList1.SelectedIndexChanged
Response.Write("This is server side code. You passed the value [" &
Request.Form("__EVENTARGUMENT") & "]<br>")
End Sub

End Class

Please let me know if you have any questions regarding this.
