"What was that tag, again?"



  • Yesterday a peer who has been an ASP.NET/C# programmer at this company for close to 2 years asked me to look at a problem. His page was throwing an error saying that the method "doSomething()" didn't exist. He pointed to doSomething() nestled snugly in the page's script tags. I then pointed to the runat="server" property and said that he was using a server-side ASP.NET control's onClick property and confusing it with the standard HTML link element's onClick property. After removing the "runat" property from the asp:HyperLink and finding that it still didn't work, I told him to just make a simple HTML link.

    "What's the tag for that?" he responded.

    That's what working solely in .NET for 2 years will do to you. No hard feelings bud... just get out and get some fresh air.

    The tag is "a" ... oh, wait... "eh!"
