Asp.net Image Button does not have an onClick event


This code is inside a GridView,

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Edit" ItemStyle-VerticalAlign="Middle" ItemStyle-HorizontalAlign="Center"> <ItemTemplate> <asp:Image ID="imgEdit" ImageUrl="~/edit.png" runat="server"/> </ItemTemplate> </asp:TemplateField>

My problem is that if I try to create an onClick event inside the <asp:Image attribute it is not available. What might be the issue?


<asp:Image /> is used to display images only, hence you're not able to use OnClick Event. The control you're looking for is <asp:ImageButton /> which will allow you to use the OnClick Event.

<asp:ImageButton runat="server" OnClick="MyClickFunction" />


You can use an ImageButton like that :

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="True" %> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" > <head> <title>ImageButton Sample</title> <script language="C#" runat="server"> void ImageButton_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e) { Label1.Text = "You clicked the ImageButton control at the coordinates: (" + e.X.ToString() + ", " + e.Y.ToString() + ")"; } </script> </head> <body> <form id="form1" runat="server"> <h3>ImageButton Sample</h3> Click anywhere on the image.<br /><br /> <asp:ImageButton id="imagebutton1" runat="server" AlternateText="ImageButton 1" ImageAlign="left" ImageUrl="images/pict.jpg" OnClick="ImageButton_Click"/> <br /><br /> <asp:label id="Label1" runat="server"/> </form> </body> </html>

If is on Client side you can simply use a <a href="">..</a>
