I have a rating control that shows the average rating of a user supplied posting (think of a forum post that others will rate). So if the average rating for that posting is lets say 3 out of 5 all users will see 3 stars. If someone wants to rate the posting,
then they could click lets say 4 stars and I save the rating to the database, re-average the current rating and display the result (which may or may not still be 3 at this point). So far so good. The problem comes in when a user wants to agree that it's 3
stars. Since the rating control currently shows 3 stars, choosing 3 again does not cause a postback. In my case even though the value didnt technically change, I need to capture the users choice so I can average it in and save that users rating. I also modify
the UI so that I can show each user of the site what he/she choose as a rating.
How can i get the control to let me know that a user choose a star rating even if its the same one the control is currently displaying?
Thanks for any help!!
