I am developing a c# web application. I have 2 web pages.
The first web page has a button which opens a window.
After entering some text in that window and pressing the 'OK' button, I want to update a label in the first web page with the entered text, without causing the first page to postback.

I have tried to call a public function on the opener page but that doesn't work. The control which I need to update is null.

Is there another way to achieve that?

Thank you

The first page is called 'firstPage' and contains a public function:
public void setText(string txt)
     lblText.Text = txt;
The second page has a button_click function from which i want to update the label in the opener page:
protected void btnOK_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            firstPage page = new firstPage();
