I am have a photo album(not gallery) which previews the photos withing it. The albums are dynamically generated depending on number of albums associated with the user. I want to add on click event to it so that when a person clicks an album it takes him to the photos within that album. I am beginner so I do not exactly know how it can be done. But I think adding command arguments should do the trick.


for (int i = 0; i < dt5.Rows.Count; i++)
    string q = "select  imageurl from photos where albumid='" 
                                        + dt5.Rows[i]["albumid"].ToString() + "'";
    dt6 = dbo.Getdt(q);
    a = dt6.Rows[0]["imageurl"].ToString();
    b = dt6.Rows[1]["imageurl"].ToString();
    c = dt6.Rows[2]["imageurl"].ToString();
    a= a.Substring(1, a.Length - 1);
    b = b.Substring(1, b.Length - 1);
    c = c.Substring(1, c.Length - 1);
   <div   class="image_stack" style="margin-removed300px ; removed 418px;"   
       <img   class="stackphotos photo1" src="<%: a %>"   />
       <img   class="stackphotos photo2" src="<%: b %>"  />
       <img "   class="stackphotos photo3" src="<%: c %>" />
     <br /><br /><br /><br />
<% } %>

try like below.

Add on click event for div tag.
<div class="image_stack" id="divAlbum" style="margin-removed300px ; removed 418px;">
onclick="return div_Click(this)" style="cursor:pointer;" runat="server">

Add attributes from code behind. i.e add album ID as attribute from code as below.
divAlbum.Attributes.Add("ID", 10); // here 10 is just as example, you specify your ID
The above line of code, must be written where your binding the images to the div tag.

write javascript function like below.
function div_Click(sender)
    __doPostBack(sender.attributes["ID"].value, "div"); // target = album ID, argument = "div" - you can give any value to identify the event
    return true;

capture the argument in page load event as below.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (Request.Params.Get("__EVENTARGUMENT").ToString() == "div")
        // user clicked on div. 
        if (Request.Params.Get("__EVENTTARGET").ToString() != "")
            // user clicked on div. do your coding here
            int AlbumID = Convert.ToInt32(Request.Params.Get("__EVENTTARGET").ToString());  //album ID

this will capture the event when user clicks anywhere within the div area

hope it helps

Your code seems helpful, but can you explain how can i pass the albumid of the div which has been clicked? I am a beginner(just so that you know).

So, every div will be filled with photos of individual albums right ? i mean, every div will have unique album ID right ?

Each div displays the first 3 photos of one album, so yes one div=one album. Each iteration creates one album.
