Method 1. This will cause a postback on button click in response to which we will send some script to close the window.


VB.NET
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
  	Response.Write('<script>window.close();</script>')
End Sub

C#
private void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{	 
	Response.Write('<script>window.close();</script>');
}

Method 2. This is preferable since there is no postback involved.


Use the Attribute collections i.e use Attributes of button control to add client side JavaScript code
VB.NET 
	 Button1.Attributes.Add('OnClick', 'window.close();')

C#
	 Button1.Attributes.Add('OnClick', 'window.close();');

There is no predefined OnMouseOver Event.We can define as follows in the Page_Load Event.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
	ImageHotSpot.Attributes.Add('onmousemove', 'MouseOver()');
}

Where MouseOver() is the function to be defined in the ClientSide as follows


<script>
	function MouseOver()
	{
		alert('MouseMoveEvent');
	}
</script>

Pseudo-elements are fictional elements that do not exist in HTML. They address the element’s sub-part. There are 2 types of pseudo-elements as “first-line pseudo-element’ and ’first-letter pseudo-element’. Pseudo-element is created by a colon followed by pseudo-element’s name,e.g:


P:first-line
H1:first-letter

and can be combined with normal classes;

e.g:


P.initial:first-line

The first line of this paragraph will be displayed in uppercase letters

User Controls are text files with the extension ’.ascx’ which enables you to make GUI re-usable controls. Its a text file, which contains a mixture of HTML and scripting. User Controls can be edited in an editor.

On the other hand Custom Controls reside in compiled ( Dll ) assemblies. They are non-GUI but can emit HTML GUI at runtime. Example of Custom Controls would be the sever controls which come bundled with the .NET SDK like DataGrid, Repeater, DataList etc. Custom Controls are always compiled into Dll’s and hence require good programming knowledge. The purpose of Custom Controls is also to create re-usable units of code.

Here is an example of creating a HyperLink control in code.

VB.NET


Dim hpl As New HyperLink()
hpl.Text='Text'
hpl.NavigateUrl='http://www.syncfusion.com'’
hpl.ID='theID'
Page.Controls(1).Controls.Add(hpl)

C#
HyperLink  hpl = new HyperLink();
hpl.Text='Text';
hpl.NavigateUrl='http://www.syncfusion.com';
hpl.ID='theID';
Page.Controls[1].Controls.Add(hpl);
