ModalPopup TargetControlID is a Control Inside a DetailsView

Hi,

I have a details view which I am using in Insert Mode to insert a record into a DB. One of the fields in my DetailsView is a DropDownList, next to the DDL is a LinkButton. I would like a Modal PopUp to appear when that LinkButton is clicked, which allows the user to quickly add something to the DropDownList.

 I have it all working when my LinkButton which I am using as the TargetControlID is outside of my DetailsView, but when it is in the DetailsView, and I change the TargetControlID to use it's full name, the Modal PopUp appears, but then closes. It's only on the screen for a few milliseconds.

I have two LinkButtons, one inside the DetailsView, another outside the DetailsView, the outside one is hidden, I then use the OnClientClick method to force the hidden LinkButton to be clicked when the link button inside the DetailsView is clicked.

 Here is some of my code:

 <asp:LinkButton ID="cmdAddNewEvidenceType" runat="server" OnClientClick="ctl00_cphBodyText_cmdHiddenAddNewEvidenceType.click();" Text="Add New" />

<

asp:LinkButton ID="cmdHiddenAddNewEvidenceType" runat="server" Style="visibility: hidden" />

<ajaxToolkit:ModalPopupExtender ID="ModalPopupExtender" runat="server" TargetControlID="cmdHiddenAddNewEvidenceType"

PopupControlID="palAddEvidenceItemType" BackgroundCssClass="modalBackground" CancelControlID="cmdCancelAdd"

DropShadow="True" PopupDragHandleControlID="palHeader">

</ajaxToolkit:ModalPopupExtender>
 Thanks

 Andrew

hey Andrew,

what you can do is find out what the dynamic ID the .net gives your cancel/ok button that are inside the details view and assign them in the CancelControlID or OkControlID, usually the ID that .net generates are somewhat like:

MyDetailsview1$MyOkButtonID


hope that make sense...

That's not really what I am after, my OK and Cancel buttons work fine, they do everything I want them to do.

What I am trying to do is get the Modal PopUp to be triggered from a LinkButton inside a DetailsView.

I have tried to use the ID .Net Generates, but either I am getting the ID or wrong, or the TargetControlID does not support them, as it does not seem to want to work!!

Alright, got it working with the full unique control ID. I was missing the Content Place Holder tag. I'll close this now, but I have a new AJAX problem!
