Default Callback Panel

The Callback Panel control is an AJAX-enabled container that refreshes its contents using callbacks to the server without reloading the entire page. Use the client PerformCallback method to initiate a callback. Handle the Callback event to process a callback on the server side.

The PerformCallback method takes an optional parameter that specifies arbitrary string data to pass to the server. On the server-side, you can access this data through the Callback event's parameter using the Parameter property.

The client BeginCallback and EndCallback events allow you to perform any client-side actions just before the callback is initiated and after server-side processing has completed.

Note that in this demo the callback time is intentionally extended so that the loading indicator is visible during callbacks.

    callbackPanel.PerformCallback("caused on the button click");
}

Callback Animation

When callback animation is enabled, the callback panel contents fade out when the callback is initiated and updated contents fade in when the response is obtained. Set the EnableCallbackAnimation property to true to enable animations.

Client-Side Events

This demo illustrates the capabilities of the Callback Panel's client events and allows you to specify which client-side events you want to track.

Click the Update button to initiate a callback to the server. Click the Force Error button for the server to throw an exception while processing a callback.
