How can I use an alert popup from my .vb codebehind file?

I just want a message or alert box to state this.

"The data set contains more than 35000 rows.  Please narrow your search criteria."

If you are doing it from a click event, when you test for dataset rows, if it is > 35000, do this:

string alertMsg = "The data set contains more than 35000 rows.  Please narrow your search criteria.";
string scriptMsg = "<script language='javascript'>alert('" + alertMsg + "');</script>"

Response.Write(scriptMsg);

An alternative to this, and this is how I usually handle this sort of thing, is to place a label control below the command button that causes the postback, but I set the Visible property to false on the label.  Then if certain conditions are met or excpetions are raised, I will put a message in the label.Text property and set the Visible property to true.  This causes the page to show the message in label without having to worry about JavaScript calls.

bodytag.Attributes.Add("onload", "window.open('popup.aspx',null,'height=250, width=250,status= no, resizable= no, scrollbars=no, toolbar=no,location=no,menubar=no ');")
