You can use popupControl.Show(); or popupControl.Hide(); to control popup control visibility on server-side. You can do the same with javascript with popupControl.show(); or popupControl.hide();

Hi

I have used following code(code in code section)

But I didn't see anything like

Show() or Hide() in code behind
<asp:TextBox ID="txtDatabaseEntry" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>    
    <asp:Panel ID="loginPanel" runat="server" Style="display: none">
        <asp:Login ID="LoginCtrl" runat="server" FailureText="Identifiant incorrect ! Essayez ? nouveau..."
            LoginButtonText="Login" PasswordLabelText="Password" PasswordRequiredErrorMessage="Le mot de passe est requis."
            RememberMeText="Remember Me" TitleText="S'identifier"
            UserNameLabelText="User Name" UserNameRequiredErrorMessage="L'email est requis."
            CreateUserText="S'enregistrer" CreateUserUrl="/Register.aspx" PasswordRecoveryText="Mot de passe oubli? ?"
            PasswordRecoveryUrl="/PasswordRecovery.aspx" />
    </asp:Panel>
    <ajaxToolkit:PopupControlExtender ID="PopEx" runat="server" TargetControlID="txtDatabaseEntry"
        PopupControlID="loginPanel" Position="Left" />

Open in new window

If there is no specifig condition to check prior opening/closing the popup you can use:

TargetControlID - The ID of the element that activates the modal popup  (for example login loginHyperLink like in your example)
CancelControlID - The ID of the element that cancels the modal popup



<ajaxToolkit:PopupControlExtender ID="PopEx" runat="server" TargetControlID="loginHyperLink"
        PopupControlID="loginPanel" Position="Left" CancelControlID="cancelButton" />

Open in new window

PopEx.Show(); and PopEx.Hide(); should exits on you page / user control that contains the PopupControlExtender control .

Hi

It is necessary to put popup extender in the <asp:updatepanel

because I am getting an error

"The control with ID 'PopEx' requires a ScriptManager on the page. The ScriptManager must appear before any controls that need it.

To enable ASP.NET Ajax in general on your page you'll need to have <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" /> on your page.
You can use popup control without updatepanel, but the scriptmanager is required.

Can you  post your aspx and aspx.cs file?
Do you see your PopEx in code-behind at all?

the main screen should be grayed by default. see the sample from http://www.asp.net/ajax/ajaxcontroltoolkit/samples/modalpopup/modalpopup.aspx
once clicking the link "Click here to change the paragraph style" it opens a modal popup and there is no way to click other screen elements before the modal dialog is closed.

You can also download ajax control toolkit with source code and samples (http://ajaxcontroltoolkit.codeplex.com/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=16488).  There you can see for example how the link above is implemented.
