I tried adding an updateprogress to a modal popup, but the updateprogress does not display or when it does, it is displayed as background and not within the popup.

How can I display the update progress message on top of the modal popup?

the idea is to set the

UpdateProgress inside a panel and set this panel has the target control of the
the rest is CSS.
if that does not help, please send your code.



I already have the modal popup working...I just need to attach an update progress to a button within the modal and have that update progress display within the modal.

How do you set the target control within the update progress to the modal popup?


Ok, I moved the updateprogress within a panel within the modal and it works. The only issue is that it fires when the modal fires instead of when a button within the modal fires.

ok, i just saw my error. i was thinking you what to display a  update progress in modal popup for a control outside the popup.
What you are doing is a update progress in modal popup that display the progress of the a control in the popup, i`m ok?

Anyway, could you send your code,

Is sned the above before reciving your last comment.
ususly UpdateProgress are associated with a specific UpdatePanel using the  AssociatedUpdatePanelID, how your button trigger your UpdateProgress?
it shoud be set has the trigger of an update panel and that panel should be set has the AssociatedUpdatePanelID of the UpdateProgress.

Yes thanks, that works.

The only issue now is that is pauses before it displays and sometimes does not fire at all.


ok, I added this... DisplayAfter="0" and that helped with the pause and it seems to fire all the time now.

The only other little quirk is that the annomated gif I'm displaying sometimes just sits there. Any suggestions?

If it "just sits there" specially if it`s only "sometimes " it`s because your computer (the client) is too busy to display the animation...
I don`t know any solution for that.
