Hello,

Just out of curiosity, what are the RadCodeBlock and RadScriptBlock controls used for?  What is their purpose?  What advantages does the RadScriptBlock give you over defining your own <script></script> tags without it?

Thanks.

Hi Brian,

Standard UpdatePanel cannot register any declared <script> blocks. If you wrap your declared JavaScript blocks with RadScriptBlock RadAjaxManager and RadAjaxPanel will register automatically these scripts.

With RadCodeBlock you can wrap parts of the page where you have Code Render Blocks.

so pretty much if we use RadScript, we are covered for both the cases. So would it safe to say that if had to choose between the two [ScriptBlock vs CodeBlock], ScriptBlock would be a safe option?

Hi,

RadCodeBlock and RadScriptBlock are used to allow server and client script to work well together with AJAX updates. RadCodeBlock should be used when you have server code blocks placed within the markup. RadScriptBlock is used where you have JavaScript that evaluates after an AJAX request. Please have a look into this help documentation for further information.

Thanks,
Shinu.

Shukriya [Thanks so much] Shinu,
    This helped immensely in my understanding of the two. 

    One more question:
    Can either of them nest the other? Any negative implications etc.? [Just picking your brain]


Thanks,

Hello,

You should not nest RadScriptBlock into RadCodeBlock or vice verse. the both modules could contains only properly formatted script tags.
