How to disable postback on an asp Button

I have an asp button. It's server-side so I can only show it for logged in users, but i want it to run a javascript function and it seems when it's runat="server" it always calls the postback event.

I also have a regular button (<input...>) not running at server and it works fine...

How can I make this button only run the javascript and not postback?

Answer

Have your javascript return false when it's done.

<asp:button runat="server".... OnClientClick="myfunction(); return false;" />
Answer
YourButton.Attributes.Add("onclick", "return false");

or

<asp:button runat="server" ... OnClientClick="return false" />
Answer

Consider this.

<script type="text/javascript">
Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance().add_beginRequest(BeginRequest);
function BeginRequest(sender, e) {
    e.get_postBackElement().disabled = true;

}
     </script>
Answer

The others are right that you need your callback to return false; however I'd like to add that doing it by setting the onclick is an ugly old way of doing things. I'd recommend reading about unobtrusive javascript. Using a library like jQuery could make your life easier, and the HTML less coupled to your javascript (and jQuery's supported by Microsoft now!)

Answer

ASP.NET always generate asp:Button as an input type=submit.
If you want a button which doesn't do a post, but need some control for the element on the server side, create a simple HTML input with attributes type=button and runat=server.

If you disable click actions doing OnClientClick=return false, it won't do anything on click, unless you create a function like:

function btnClick() {
    // do stuff
    return false;
}
Answer

You don't say which version of the .NET framework you are using.

If you are using v2.0 or greater you could use the OnClientClick property to execute a Javascript function when the button's onclick event is raised.

All you have to do to prevent a server postback occuring is return false from the called JavaScript function.

additionally for accepted answer you can use UseSubmitBehavior="false" MSDN

Answer

In my case, I solved adding return in the onClientClick:

Code Behind

function verify(){
  if (document.getElementById("idName").checked == "") {
    alert("Fill the field");
    return false;
  }
}

Design Surface

<asp:Button runat="server" ID="send" Text="Send" onClientClick="return verify()" />
Answer

you can use the code:

<asp:Button ID="Button2" runat="server"
     Text="Pulsa"
     OnClientClick="this.disabled=true"
     UseSubmitBehavior="False"/>

if nee submit

...
<form id="form1" runat="server" onsubmit="deshabilita()">
...
<script type="text/javascript">
    function deshabilita()
    {
        var btn = "<%= Button1.ClientID %>";
        if (confirm("Confirme postback"))
        {
            document.getElementById(btn).disabled = true;
            return true;
        }
        return false;
    }
</script>

With Validation

In this example I used two controls,ddl and txtbox, have a happy coding

 asp:ScriptManager ID="script1" runat="server" /asp:ScriptManager

    asp:UpdatePanel ID="Panel1" runat="server"
       ContentTemplate

// ASP BUTTON
asp:Button ID="btnSave" runat="server" Text="Save" class="btn btn-success" OnClientClick="return Valid()" OnClick="btnSave_Click"


   /ContentTemplate    
    /asp:UpdatePanel    

  <script type="text/javascript">
        function Valid() {

            if ($("#ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_YOUR CONTROL NAME").val() == 0) {
                alert("Please select YOUR TEXT");
                $("#ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_YOUR CONTROL NAME").focus();
                return false;
            }

            if ($("#ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_YOUR CONTROL NAME").val().length == 0) {
                alert("Please Type YOUR TEXT");
                $("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_YOUR CONTROL NAME").focus();
                return false;
            }
            return true;
        }
</script>
Answer

You can use jquery click action and use the preventDefault() function to avoid postback

<asp:button ID="btnMyButton" runat="server" Text="MyButton" />


$("#btnMyButton").click(function (e) {
// some actions here
 e.preventDefault();
}
Answer

You can use JQuery for this

<asp:Button runat="server" ID="btnID" />

than in JQuery

$("#btnID").click(function(e){e.preventDefault();})
