How to share the same ModalPopupExtender and the popup panel by buttons within different UpdatePanel

Hi everyone,

As in my question title: I got several update panels in a page, and each of them contains a "Add Extra" button. I also added a modal popup extender, and a popup panel.

My question is how can I reuse this ModalPopupExtender for all these "Add Extra" buttons click,
it only has one TargetControlId attribute.

In addition, because I put this ModalPopupExtender outside any update panel, so I got an error when I try to open this page:
   "  Error:An extender can't be in a different UpdatePanel than the control it extends.  "

How can I get rid of this problem, and why an extender can't be in a different UpdatePanel than the control it extends?

Many thanks!
