Reload page in js: RefreshPage

There are many ways to reload / refresh a page in javascript. One of them is as in describes:


Today I found some tools which are shipped with ASP.NET/SharePoint to reload a page. The big advantage of them they are designed to work with SharePoint and take all possible aspects of page life cycle into account. The javascript function to refresh a page is just called, guess..: RefreshPage and it resides in init.js:

function RefreshPageTo(evt, url, bForceSubmit) {ULSA13:;
	CoreInvoke('_RefreshPageTo', evt, url, bForceSubmit);

It takes at least one parameter, the dialogResult: 1, 0 or -1 which are SP.UI.DialogResult.OK or SP.UI.DialogResult.cancel or SP.UI.DialogResult.invalid.

The only thing it does is to invoke a function from core.js:

function _RefreshPageTo(evt, url, bForceSubmit)
	return _SubmitFormPost(url, bForceSubmit);

The _RefreshPage function from core.js validates the data and invokes _SubmitFormPost:

In the end it gets the main form (“aspnetForm”) and invokes submit on it:


Undvika postback i button

Äntligen har jag kommit på hur man kan skippa oönskad postback i button. Det finns många olika lösningar. Här är ett intressant inlägg på stackoverflow om det. Men det enklaste sättet är egentligen bara lägga till

return false;

i onclick…

Här är lösningen

using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
HtmlButton HtmlButtonSendMail;
protected override void CreateChildControls() 
#region Configure Send Email
     HtmlButtonSendMail = new HtmlButton();
     HtmlButtonSendMail.InnerText = "Send Email";
     HtmlButtonSendMail.ID = "HtmlButtonSendMail";
     string script = "";
     script += "SP.UI.Notify.addNotification('Loading..', false);";
     script += "var options = {";
     script += "  url: \"../_layouts/Toolbox/SendMail.aspx\",";
     script += "  width: 800,";
     script += "  height: 680,";
     script += "  allowMaximize: false";
     script += "};";
     script += "SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog(options);";
     script += "return false;";
     HtmlButtonSendMail.Attributes.Add("onclick", script);
               "Skicka mail till\r\nde här personerna");
protected override void Render(HtmlTextWriter writer)
