showModalDialog problem very serious
Posted on 2004-04-07
Hi Folks ,
I am working on a ASP.NET application where i need to show a popup window on the main
screen , when i click on a link on the main screen . For that purpose , i used showModalDialog() .
In the showModalDialog popup , while loading the popup in the Page_Load() event , i am
accessing the database , and depending on the business logic I am dynamically generating
contents of the popup window.
Using showModalDialog also serves my purpose of restricting access to the main screen.
But there are some problems .
1) Though the contents in the database is changing , the same is not geting reflected in the
This happens , immaterial of how many times i open that popup window and close it .
But this behaviour stops , once i close the browser window and open the same in another
Is there any way of tackling it ?
Is the content of the showModaldialog once loaded remains static , irrespective of change in
2) When i click on the Ok button of the showModalDialog , the page is not getting refereshed.
Will Page refresh doesn't work in showModalDialog?
Can anyone suggest me continuing with showModalDialog or try any other new thing ???
I even tried DHTMLModalDialog which doesn't serve my purpose as , though it restricts focus to
the main screen , it is allowing me to access the Internet Explorer menu on the main screen.
Any suggestions except DHTMLModalDialog is welcome.
I need ur deseparate help in this regard , as i am hanged out here.
Thank you folks in advance
