User Control Bubble Event

A better idea is to publish an event in the user control to allow any interested parties to handle the event.

This technique is commonly referred to as “event bubbling”.

Here is an exmple:

<%@ Control Language=”C#” AutoEventWireup=”true” CodeBehind=”UserControlDemo.ascx.cs” Inherits=”WellnGood.UserControlDemo” %>
<asp:Button ID=”btn1″ runat=”server” Text=”Bubble to Page”
onclick=”btn1_Click” />

public partial class WebUserControl : System.Web.UI.UserControl


public event EventHandler buttonClick;

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
buttonClick(sender, e);


Then you can subscribe the event buttonClick at webpage to display the different information .

<%@ Page Language=”C#” AutoEventWireup=”true” CodeBehind=”BubbleEvent.aspx.cs” Inherits=”WellnGood.BubbleEvent” %>

<%@ Register Src=”~/UserControlDemo.ascx” TagName=”UserControlDemo” TagPrefix=”ucDemo” %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “”&gt;

<html xmlns=”; >
<head runat=”server”>
<title>Untitled Page</title>
<form id=”form1″ runat=”server”>
<ucDemo:UserControlDemo ID=”ucDemo1″ runat=”server” />

public partial class BubbleEvent: System.Web.UI.Page
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

ucDemo1.buttonClick+=new EventHandler(ucDemo1_buttonClick);


protected void ucDemo1_buttonClick(object sender, EventArgs e)
Response.Write(“I am User control bubble event on Page”);
