Managing Round-Trips to the Server

A Web page defines an IsPostBack property. You can poll the IsPostBack property to determine whether the page is being rendered as the result of a request or a user postback. For example, when we click the paging links for a DataGrid control, we are posting the page back, but the event handler is binding the DataGrid control. Hence we don't need to bind the DataGrid control in the Page_Load event a second time. You can use the IsPostBack property to eliminate the extra call to DataBind . Listing 16.14 demonstrates a Page_Load event that checks the IsPostBack property.

Listing 16.14 Using IsPostBack to Eliminate Extra Calls to DataBind
 Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _   ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load   If (Not IsPostBack) Then     DataGrid1.DataSource = New Contact()     DataGrid1.DataBind()   End If End Sub
