To call a server side method on a client side event you need to do the following:

1- Create the server side method:

void DoSomething(...) { ... }

2- Implement the System.Web.UI.IPostBackEventHandler.RaisePostBackEvent which take one string argument (You can assign the name to the value of this argument).:

public void RaisePostBackEvent(string eventArgument)

3- Write a script to trigger post back:

function TriggerPostBack(control, arg){
  __doPostBack(control, arg);

4- Call the PostBack trigger function when needed:

<a .... onclick="TriggerPostBack('control', 'arg')" .. />

<asp:TextBox ID="txtName" runat="server" onblur="TriggerPostBack()" ></asp:TextBox>

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

function TriggerPostBack() {


var pageId = '<%=Page.ClientID %>';

var txtval = document.getElementById('<%=txtName.ClientID%>');

// __doPostBack(txtval, txtval.value);


'__Page', txtval.value )




public partial class CallServerMethod : System.Web.UI.Page, IPostBackEventHandler


protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e)


// just to know post back event reference wats going on n to get ref name

string postBackEventReference = Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(this,string.Empty);





public void RaisePostBackEvent(string eventArgument)


// u can define method also m(eventArgument)
