How can I add my method instead of URL of a website, I can see another option as "ClientOnClickScript" but not sure how exactly I can do it tho, here's my code

public class MyUserControl: WebControl
    private MenuItemTemplate _action;

    protected override void CreateChildControls()
       _action = new MenuItemTemplate
         Text = "hahahahaha",
         Description = "whatever",
         ImageUrl = "/_layouts/images/abc.gif",
         ClientOnClickNavigateUrl = "http://www.freehostingmarket.co.uk"


    private void myMethod(string linkToURL, string documentLibraryName)

I got these 4 options I think but not sure which one will work,

  • ClientOnClickNavigateUrl
  • ClientOnClickPostBackConfirmation
  • ClientOnClickScript
  • ClientOnClickUsingPostBackEvent

To handle click event of MenuItemTemplate.
1. Subclass MenuItemTemplate, IPostBackEventHandler and declare an event inside the class to which you can subscribe.
2. Instantiate this class instead of MenuItemTemplate and handle the event. That's it.
