Not sure why page is considered orphaned. It *is* linked from ASP.NET articles (forgot which one).
Maybe it should mention that postback is ASP.NET terminology? Is there different technical term for the same concept in comparable web app frameworks? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 16:49, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
- The term "postback" is also used for this concept in JavaServer Faces. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:15, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
I don't understand the example. What language is that? Why do the actions not satisfy the condition? How does an example of a failed transaction (or failed page update?) explain the concept of the POST verb? This article should be deleted and redirected to POST (HTTP), nothing of value will be lost.--220.127.116.11 (talk) 04:01, 21 February 2010 (UTC)
"In ASP, a form and its POST action have to be created as two separate pages, resulting in the need for an intermediate page and a redirect if one simply wants to perform a postback. This problem was addressed in ASP.NET with the __doPostBack() function and an application model that allows a page to perform validation and processing on its own form data."
Completely and utterly false. Nothing is stopping you from submitting a form back to itself and processing it right there in Classic ASP (except for maybe confused/inept developers). .NET may have popularized/coined/simplified the process but they certainly didn't reinvent the wheel. Stop drinking the Microsoft Kool-Aid and learn how the underlying technology really works. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 19:57, 23 June 2013 (UTC)
