Setting events for button within asp:table

I am just learning asp.net and ran into a problem that I have not been able
to resolve. I have a web form with an html table that houses an asp:label,
asp:textbox and asp:button within. I had the click event of the asp:button
working.

I then decided to drop an asp:table on the form and then added the three
component mentioned above into the asp:table. Now I cannot find a way to
set the click even of the asp:button anymore. In fact, when I attempt to
select the button in design mode, the entire table becomes selected. I
cannot seem to select a component within the asp:table.

How can I set the click event for my button using this method?

Thanks,
Kevin

One way to add the event thru HTML code view for the
button control that inside the asp:table.

Second(kinda dumb) is to take the control outside of the
asp:table and attach the onclick event from the design
mode. Then put the button back in the asp:table.

Third don't use the asp:table. Just go with regular HTML
table. If you want server side functionality you can
always set the HTML table to runat="server".

HTH,
Suresh.

Thanks for the options Suresh. I thought of the second option, but I have
experienced strange behavior with Visual Studio 2003 when cutting and
pasting so I am learing about using this option, especially since other
developers may have to maintain the code.

I didn't want to use an HTML table because I couldn't fugure out how to make
the table visible or invisible progmatically in the code behind.

Like I mentioned, I am just learning asp (and html coding), but I will
definately look into how to add the event in the HTML code view.

I have <asp:Table... </asp:Table> on my webform. In codebehind, I populate a DataTable whose data should appear in the asp:Table.

Hello, How can I put a textbox control into a cell of an asp:Table? I was not able to do it from the properties sheet, so I put it in via html tab, but now I can't select it from the Design tab (nor select it from the Properties tab on the right). Any ideas? <asp:Table id="Table1" runat="server"> <asp:TableRow> <asp:TableCell Text="Email:"></asp:TableCell>

I had a beautiful script that was running, well, just beautifully. But then I decided to take a button that fired an event and place it inside a <asp:table. The event WILL NOT FIRE INSIDE THE TABLE!?! When I move the button outside the table, it works just fine. Inside the table, it doesn't. What gives?

When editing an ASP Table, Visual Studio does not allow me to edit it in Design View. This makes it harder to add elements, because I must add every element either by using Design View to create the element outside of the table and then using cut & paste in HTML View to move it to the desired location, or by manually typing the code in using HTML View. The first technique sometimes does not automatically update the list of elements...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
