Hi all Im new asp.net, and have made a boo boo - I have used a message box function on the vb.net page tied to an asp.net page - when I run it from Visual studio 2005 it works fine, when i run it from the iis manager I get the error:

Showing a modal dialog box or form when the application is not running in UserInteractive mode is not a valid operation. Specify the ServiceNotification or DefaultDesktopOnly style to display a notification from a service application.

I believe it has some thing to do with server/client - but dont know how I can get round it - Please help!
reply = MsgBox("Do you want to Create a record For " & Organisation.Text, MsgBoxStyle.YesNo, "Add record")
 
 
        If reply = 6 Then
' do some stuff
else
'dont do nuffin
end if

You cannot show a messagebox a that way - that works only in design time or if it's a desktop application. Use javascript on client side - confirm() is what you need - http://www.tizag.com/javascriptT/javascriptconfirm.php
