This is my first try at the Modal Popup. I want to be able to call some code behind when the ok button of the Modal is clicked. I suspect that I will be calling okButton_Click event.

I have a Label that I am trying to change the text. The purpose is just to show that I was able to call the code-behind.

I my code looks a little "off"...I have been reading code from the Internet, Asp.net forums and Expert forums trying to figure this out. No one has a nice straight forward example. And some that think they do...don't work.

and I dont think you need to use those javascript function if you do nothing on the client side.
so you could remove the OkControlID and set the ok button has a normal button and use ModalPopupExtender1.hide form code behind. i think the cancel should be ok.

I got this to work.

I will post all of my code for the benefit of someone else. Two key items to look at: 1) In the first line you need EnableEventValidation="false" or you will get a big error message. To see the error message set this to true. and 2) I copied to script by looking at another code example on the Internet. Basically, what you are doing is hiding the modalpopup and then the line _doPostBack is sending a okButton Click event. This then calls the OnClick="okButton_Click -- which is the code behind.
