this.Page.GetPostBackEventReference(this.Button1) not working for a Modeless Dialog

Hi,

I am trying to perform "this.Page.GetPostBackEventReference(this.Button1)" within a Modeless Dialog box but I receive the following error :-

"Microsoft JScript runtime error: 'this.Page' is null or not an object"

I think I understand that this.Page may only work in a "proper" window but is there any way of performing my GetPostBackEventReference within the dialog?

Thanks.

James.

Hi,

Here is the code from the Page_Load method in c#

      string strButton;
      strButton = "if (typeof(Page_ClientValidate) == 'function') { ";
      strButton += "if (Page_ClientValidate() == false) { return false; }};";
      strButton += "this.value = 'Please wait...';";
      strButton += "this.disabled = true;";
      strButton += "this.Page.GetPostBackEventReference(this.Button1);";
      Button1.Attributes.Add("onclick", strButton.ToString());

Thanks.

JAMES,

the
GetPostBackEventReference
is a server-side method not a client side
so this
strButton += "this.Page.GetPostBackEventReference(this.Button1);";
may be should be
strButton += this.Page.GetPostBackEventReference(this.Button1);
