I have a bound gridview where each row has a link to open a modal window displaying a bound detailsview relating tot he selected row. I have been playing around with the modalpopupextender control, but have a number of issues getting that working without unneccesary post backs.
As a result I've tried just using a JQuery extension like Thickbox and opening an IFrame Modal window. This allows me to open a seperate aspx page fromw hich I can display the detailsview, bind it and allow for editing etc.. without any impact on the parent page.
The main problem with this is when I edit and save the detailsview I want to be able to update the gridview on the parent page (specifically to update the selected row to reflect any changes made to that record).
Is there any way of being able to send a response back to the parent page and either initiate a postback or partial postback based on an event in the thickbox child page?
