  • normally that syntax indicates an ID value of the HTML output generated by an ASP.NET control

  • Hi Shreya,

    that is probably id of a div or span or some other container control. That is not JavaScript.

    a good place to start would be search for JavaScript tutorial.

    good one to start with is http://www.w3schools.com/js/default.asp

  • hi,

    it does not signify anything. The prefix is created by ASP engine to make the control unique. Please add another few controls inside the same container control to see how it works.

  •  function OfferEndDate(sender, args) {
                if (sender.get_id() == 'ctl00_Content_ceNewOfferStartDate') {
                    fromDate = sender._selectedDate;
                } 

    so if it does not signify anything i can write just "ceNewOfferStartDate" instead of "ctl00_Content_ceNewOfferStartDate"????

  • Hi,

    what I meant was that that part of the id is dynamic or unpredictable. If you move the control to another container object or move the control around, the prefix may change.
