You would need the following javascript:

function ShowMyModalPopup() {
      var modal = $object('modalPopUpID');
      if (modal) {

And then on the button or text, or link, just put OnClick="ShowMyModalPopup()"...

Remember if it's an ASP.NET control you will need to use OnClientClick=
For mouseover, you can add do this.  For example, if it is a label control then, add an attribute to be fired on the client side on the label control
        <asp:Label ID="lblText" runat="server" Text="Something"/>
in the server side as,
       lblText.Attributes.Add("onmouseover", "functionname();");

thanks for all your solutions, can't make it run - I attached the code snippet except the Panel. I used both $find and $object

Button Event:
<asp:ImageButton ID="detail" runat="server"  onmouseover="showModalPopupViaClient(this)"  />
<cc1:ModalPopupExtender ID="ModalPopupExtender1" runat="server" 
            TargetControlID="job1" PopupControlID="pnlPopup1"  CancelControlID="btnCancel" 
            OkControlID="btnOK" BackgroundCssClass ="modalBackground">            
<cc1:RoundedCornersExtender ID="RoundedCornersExtender1" runat="server" 
           TargetControlID="pnlInnerPopup1" BorderColor="white" Radius="10" />        
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> 
  function showModalPopupViaClient(control,id) {                 
            var modalPopupBehavior = $find('ModalPopupExtender1');

Open in new window

I think the function is _show(), not show()

I got it! Since my page is in master page I added the ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_ to find it.

Thank you all...
