IButtonControl Interface in ASP.NET 2.0

ASP.NET 2.0 has introduced a new interface named IButtonControl under System.Web.UI.WebControls namespace. The properties and methods of this interface can be implemented to make a control behave like a button in a web form. One of the important properties is PostBackUrl. This can be used to post the current page to a different page, in other words, doing cross-page posting.

On a related note, view state related to cross-page posting is stored in a hidden variable named __PREVIOUSPAGE. The target page can refer to the posting page by using Page.PreviousPage property which is also new in ASP.NET 2.0.

To know more about the interface, please read the MSDN library link.
