Passing more event arguments on postback

Jun 4, 2012 at 3:16 PM

Hi all, 

After searching all over the internet over the past 2 days on how to wire post back events to a button control on the ribbon, I landed up here and fluent ribbon seems to be a savior. 

However, I still have a problem of not able to pass more than 1 event arguments over postback. I have 2 textboxes and a button in the ribbon and I want to use the values of these text boxes and perform some operation in the button click event.

Please share your thoughts on how this can be done!

What I do is am pasing multiple arguments in string separated by "|".

Hope this helps.

hi, kothand!

I agree with Ivan, the only way to manage multiple arguments is to serialize them on client, pass through eventparam and deserialize back on server side.

For this purpose, I would use Sys.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer and System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer on client and on server side correspondingly.

Though, for simple scenarios, separating by "|" will do.
