This used to work and now for some reason it doesn't.

I have an update panel that is controlled by an ajax modal popup extender. When the user hits the create button the panel just freezes. The create button is supposed to add an album to the database.

Here I will post the front end and the button click.

Thanks for the help.

Hi,
first, dont link direcltly the update panel to the modal pupup, link it to a "standard" panel instead. id you still need to do update on the things in the panel, then put a update panel into the "standard" panel.
i think you will find the following link interesting.
http://blogs.technet.com/kirtid/archive/2007/05/03/using-updatepanels-with-modalpopups.aspx
also, make sure you use the client id of the popup, i use something like this

dont hesitate if you need more help.

 <asp:Button runat="server" ID="hiddenTargetControlForModalDownloadPDFPanelPopup" style="display:none"/>
        <asp:Panel ID="DownloadPDFPanel" runat="server" CssClass="updateProgress"> 
               <div style="position: relative; top: 30%; text-align: center;">   
                   <asp:Button ID="Download" runat="server" Text="Download PDF" OnClientClick="HideDownloadPopup()" />
               </div>
        </asp:Panel>
        <cc1:ModalPopupExtender ID="DownloadPDFModalPopup" runat="server" 
            TargetControlID="hiddenTargetControlForModalDownloadPDFPanelPopup"  
            BackgroundCssClass="modalTextBoxBackground" 
            PopupControlID="DownloadPDFPanel"
            DropShadow="true" />
 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
var ModalGeneratingPDF ='<%= DownloadPDFModalPopup.ClientID %>'; 
 
function HideDownloadPopup() 
{ 
// hide the Popup 
$find(ModalGeneratingPDF).hide(); 
}
