precedence between OnClientClick and OnClick?

Hi,

I'm a little confused about the precedence of actions between OnClientClick
and OnClick. In this example, what will be executed first and why?

Thanks
Phil

in code-behind:
---------------
Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Hiddenfield1.value="end text"
....
end sub

in aspx file:
----------
<asp:HiddenField ID="hd1" runat="server" value="beginning
text"></asp:HiddenField>
<asp:Button ID="Button1" OnClientClick="test()" runat="server"/>

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
function test()
{
var x = document.getElementById("hd1").value
alert(x)
}
</script>

OnClientClick gets executed first so that the postback can be cancelled if
required...

<script type="text/javascript">
function validateForm()
{
if (something fails)
{
return false;
}
}
</script>

<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClientClick="return
validateForm();" OnClick="Button1_Click" Text="Click me" />

OnClientClick always goes first since it happens on client side, when you
view the page in your browser. OnClick happens on the server where the page
arrives after a postback.
