This is my first post so I am sorry if I forgot some needed information:
We are using a ModalPopUpExtender to render our asp.net (Visual Basic) Login Control.  

When someone submits incorrect login information the popup modal disappears.  It should remain and show an authentication failed message.

Hi,

Can You please post the code? Both the relevant markup and code behind would be helpful.

There is a trick that you put an UpdatePanel inside the modalPopup, but then it requires pretty much another tricky step.

What you can do best is, after the page is postback and in the login function return false, this happens on server side. -> Inside that Login Button Click, when it's failed: open again the ModalPopup using .Show();

On your cs page (server side):

lblValid.Text = "Unable to authenticate user";
ModalPopupExtender mp = Page.FindControl("modalID") as ModalPopupExtender;
if(mp != null)
   mp.Show();

Hope this help

Thank you so much.    You pointed me in the right direction.   The mp.show() in a conditional in the pageLoad() in the site.mastser worked.

I am glad to help ^^
Hope you find the best place to trigger the Show() and doesn't  interfere the rest of the page ^^
