Prevent LinkButton PostBack with Javascript


If you need to be able to update the text displayed in an ASP.net control such as a LinkButton through code-behind before the page is rendered but will end up using that control to invoke client-side javascript and don’t want a PostBack to happen you can simply add “return false;” after your custom JavaScript calls in the OnClientClick event handler of the control. “return false;” actually stops the page from posting back to the server and allows your custom JavaScript to be run client-side.


<asp:LinkButton ID=”lbtnVisit” runat=”server” Text=”Default Text” OnClientClick=”CustomScriptMethod(); return false;“></asp:LinkButton>
