ispostback vs iscallback

Page.IsCallBack

It is getting a value indicating whether the page request is the result of a call back. Its a special postback, so a round-trip always occurs; however, unlike the classic postback, the script callback doesn’t redraw the whole page. ViewState is not updated during a callback, it is for postback.

Page.IsPostBack

Checks whether the Page is accessing the server for the first time or not. Unlike the IsCallBack, the ViewState is updated

Refer to Page Life Cycle for more detail that shows a diagram illustrating the sequence of events

Edit - To answer your new question

Page.IsPostback property will return true for both request types. The Page.IsCallback property will return true only when the request is a client callback
