Is it possible?

AjaxMap has an OnClickEvent property, but as I know it points to a JavaScript function instead of a C# function.

Am I Right?

inside JavaScript I really don't know the way to handle this problem.

Is there any solution to solve this in C#?

Simply store the x & y coordinates in a hidden form field and post the form. Then you can do you database storing in the page's codebehind.

It sounds good! I'll try it, and then I write a feedback here.

Hi Oliver!
I had the same problem with you.
Could you post the result you worked in C# for me? I can't understand the code in JS clearly!
Or can you send me
Thanks alot!

This it is a test that I did using Demo Ajax Map with Enterprise Library (Insert Data in SQL) and ASP.Net Ajax (PageMethod):
My aspx:
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="MapaAjax.aspx.cs" Inherits="MapaAjax" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="smap" Namespace="SharpMap.Web.UI.Ajax" Assembly="SharpMap.UI" %>

var objeto;
function MapClicked(event,obj)
var mousePos = SharpMap_GetRelativePosition(event.clientX,event.clientY,obj.container);
var pnt = SharpMap_PixelToMap(mousePos.x,mousePos.y,obj);
var field = document.getElementById('dataContents');
field.innerHTML = "Punto en: " + pnt.x + "," + pnt.y;
objeto = obj;
PageMethods.Punto(pnt, OnSucceeded);
function ViewChanging(obj)
var field = document.getElementById('dataContents');
field.innerHTML = "Cargando...";
function ViewChanged(obj)
var field = document.getElementById('dataContents');
field.innerHTML = "Centro: " + obj.GetCenter().x + "," + obj.GetCenter().y;
function OnSucceeded(result)
<form id="form1" runat="server">

ajaxMap.Map.Zoom = 0.45;
ajaxMap.ResponseFormat = "maphandler.ashx?MAP=SimpleWorld&Width=WIDTH&Height=HEIGHT&Zoom=ZOOM&X=X&Y=Y";

Punto (spanish) is a point
Pa_PuntosInsert is a store procedure that insert point (x,y) in the table.

Due to the fact that me the OleDbPoint was not working I changed it into SqlClientPoint (see this post:
But I think that it is better to use the MsSqlSpatial provider and insert a geometries point and not a x,y point, see this:

Sorry my bad source code and my bad English
