Hi All, Some of the ASP.NET server controls (.NET 2.0) like DropDownList control, LinkButton etc., has postback property. When User clicks or selects these controls, a Postback will occur. Let us consider LinkButton control, which is extension of the HyperLink control. By using JavaScript, it provides us to execute some server side code, when user clicks on the LinkButton. Many web developers(especially developing Web applications for BlackBerry Web Browser) had come across situations like, LinkButton, DropDownList etc., is not working in BlackBerry web Browser.

To overcome this situation there is small work around for this. The below code matches the browser name from the Request object and set the ECMA(JavaScript) script version to 1.5, so that the BlackBerry Browser recognizes the javascript generated by the ASP.NET isapi filter.
Add the following code under <System.web> section:

            <case match="(?i)BlackBerry">EcmaScriptVersion=1.5

NOTE: Though <browserCaps> section is deprecated in .NET 2.0, still you can use this.

The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.

The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.
