How do I force a ModalPopupExtender panel button to do a postback to call an event handler function?

How do I force a ModalPopupExtender panel button to do a postback to call an event handler function?

I tried putting the Event Handler functions name in the OnClick of the button.  I then tried to force a postback with theform.submit() but this surpasses the Validation on the page and Page.IsValid is false.

Thanks!

I don't get it! Could you post relevant sections of your code and explain the problem again?

I figured it out.  I removed the OKControlID from the ModalPopupExtender and that lets my "OK" button do what it would normally do and

I am using the MPE as an enhanced Confirmation button.  A few questions for the user before the page gets submitted.  So, when the users clicks "Save" on the page I check some things and show the MPE panel to ask a couple more questions before I submit the page.  If the OKControlID attribute is set all that happens is the popup closes.  If I leave it unset then the button on the popup works as it would on the page and forces a postback to the event handler function I have set on the OnClick of the button.

Does that make sense?  I want to be clear in case someone else is in the same situation
