ImageButton control is used to post the form or fire an event either client side or server side. Its like a asp:Button control, the only difference is, you have the ability to place your own image as a button. ImageButton control is generally used to post the form or fire an event either client side or server side. When it is rendered on the page, generally it is implemented through <input type=image > HTML tag.
There is no UserSubmitBehavior property like Button control with this control.
Its properties like BackColor, ForeColor, BorderColor, BorderStyle, BorderWidth, Height etc. are implemented through style properites of <input> tag. You can set its Image location either by setting ImageURL properties in the .aspx page or from server side page. (other properties can also be set from both pages)
Following are some important properties that are very useful.
|ImageUrl||Gets or Sets the location of the image to display as button control.|
|CausesValidation||Value can be set as true/false. This indicates whether validation should be performed when this button is clicked.|
|PostBackUrl||Indicates the URL on which the Form will be posted back when this button will be clicked.|
|ValidationGroup||Gets or Sets the name of the validation group that the button belongs to. This is used to validate only a set of Form controls with this Button.|
