How to display in ASP.NET an error message caught in a catch block using the C# code-behind?
I would like to display the message in a something like MessageBox so that a user could close it.
I know that JavaScript alert( ) could be used to display client-side messages, but how to integrate the alert( ) into the C# code-behind?  And are there any other ways to do it?

Thanks for your help.

in your catch block....

catch(Exception ex)
{
string strScript = "<script language=JavaScript>alert('" +
                       ex.Message + "')</script>";
      if (!(senderPage.IsStartupScriptRegistered(alertKey)))
      senderPage.RegisterStartupScript(alertKey, strScript);

}

I usually just create a label on the page, and set it to visible and then right the error message like so:

Try
            Me.lblAuthCode.Text = CStr(AuthNetTrans.AuthCode.ToString)
            Me.lblTransID.Text = CStr(AuthNetTrans.TransID.ToString)
        Catch ex As PaymentProcessing.AuthorizeNetException
            ''Double check this part
            Me.lblError.Text = "We are sorry there was an error of type" & ex.Message & " while processing your card."
            cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
            cmd.CommandText = "UPDATE ORDERS SET ResponseReasonText = " & ex.Message.ToString & " Where SessionID = '" & Me.lblTrackingID.Text.ToString & "'"
            cmd.Connection = cnn
            cnn.Open()
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
            cnn.Close()
            cmd.Dispose()
            cmd.Dispose()
        End Try

Catch e As Exception
            Try
                Trans.Rollback()
                cmd.CommandText = "UPDATE Orders SET Processed = 'False' WHERE OrderTrackingID = " & Me.lblOrderTrackingID.Text
                cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
                Me.lblError.Text = e.Message.ToString
            Catch ex As ByteFX.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException
                If Not Trans.Connection Is Nothing Then
                    Me.lblError.Text = ex.Message.ToString
                End If
            End Try

Dim strScript As String = "<script language=JavaScript>"
  strScript += "alert(""" & strMessage & """);"
  strScript += "</script>"

  If (Not Page.IsStartupScriptRegistered("clientScript")) Then
     Page.RegisterStartupScript("clientScript", strScript)
  End If

I have "using System.Web.UI;" in my C# code, but the compiler displays an error: "The type or namespace name 'senderPage' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?"
Thanks
