Ok, so I have been working through the creation of custom widgets and have gotten pretty good at the designer side of things. Now I need a few hints on how to properly build out the controls themselves... specifically how to properly wire up event processing within the controls.
So when you use Sitefinity Thunder to create a custom widget it creates an ASCX to represent the layout template, and a .CS to house all the related properties and references to the controls. Essentially, the ASCX is just a view and the .CS can be thought of as the code-behind that drives the presentation.
Where I am getting stuck is how to respond to events that are fired from asp controls that are placed within the template .ASCX.
For example, lets say I have a button on the template.
<asp:Button ID="GetProducts" runat="server" Text="Show Products" />
I can get a handle on that button from within the .CS file like so:
protected virtual Button GetProducts
return this.Container.GetControl<Button>("GetProducts", true);
I was then thinking that I could, within my InitializeControls method add a reference to an onClick handler like so:
GetProducts.OnClientClick = "GetProducts_Click";
But that is is for clientside scripting .... how can I wireup a serverside routine?
