Dynamically created controls in modal popup
Posted on 2010-08-31
I have a GridView where the user can select multiple rows. I need by pressing a button to show a modal popup that would contain as many groups of dynamically generated controls, as many records were selected in the GridView. E.g. if three records are selected, the popup would contain
checkBox1 textBox1 button1
checkBox2 textBox2 button2
checkBox3 textBox3 button3
The data in the controls would be taken from the GridView. If the user presses Submit button on the modal popup, I need to be able to handle the button press and retrieve the the data the user enters in checkboxes and textboxes of the modal popup.
P.S. I know how to show the modal popup, I just need to know how to dynamically create controls in the popup. Also, I realize that it would be easier to use a GridView within modal popup, but because of some reason unknown to me, when I handle the popup submit, the GridView contains no records. If somebody could help me with this, it would be even better than dynamically generated controls.
