How to add URL in favourites using ASP.NET and JavaScript

One another regular question in forum. This is a simple code which helps you to add URL in favourites. Here I have used both JavaScript and ASP.NET code.

I am giving two sample code here.

Method 1:

First we will add the current URL by opening Add URL pop up and allow the user to enter the favourites URL title.

//btnAddFavourites is the button name 
btnAddFavourites.Attributes.Add("OnClick", "window.external.AddFavorite(location.href, document.title); return true;");

Below is the pop up window sample,


Method 2:

In this method we will not take any input from user. We will add a simple JavaScript function and hard code both the URL and Title.

Add below JavaScrit just below your <head> opening tag,

<script language="javascript">
        function AddToFav()
        bookmarkurl= "";
        bookmarktitle="Good .NET Articles"
        if (document.all)
        else if (window.sidebar) // firefox
        window.sidebar.addPanel(bookmarktitle, bookmarkurl, "");

Now we will call this function on button click,

//btnAddFavourites is the button name
btnAddFavourites.Attributes.Add("OnClick", "AddToFav(); return true;");

Just try this in your website.

Cheers Asheej!
