Gridview Linkbutton Postback Problem

Posted: Monday, April 8, 2013 in .NET,

Some of the Devs in my team had a problem with linkbuttons inside a Gridview template field.

When they clicked on the linkbutton it didn’t postback.

I thought it’s an application wide issue, but in some pages it worked.

Then it came into my mind the issue is coz of the validation controls in some of the page.

When use clicks on a gridview’s  linkbutton, if the page have validation controls, it will fire them,

BUT IT WON’T SHOW THE VALIDATION MESSAGE to the end user. So the user thinks it’s an another issue.

To fix this you can add CausesValidation=”false” attribute to the linkbutton.
