Howdy folks,

I tried whole day...but couldn't figure this out.

There is a <asp> button control. When it is clicked, I have two handlers on it. One is client side and other is server side.

I want the client side (javascript) to be fired before the server side code is fired. So I made the client side javascript code to return false on a conditional statement and return true if the condition is successfull. From my samples, I learnt that if the javascript funtion returns false the server side code doesn't get fired. But, for some reason, it doesn't behave like that. So I had to use UseSubmitBehaviour='false" on the button control. This way, the server side event is not getting fired. But I want the server side event to get fired when the client side script returns false. How can i do this? I tired whole day...any help is greatly appreciated.
