Hi,

Not sure i fully understand your question but lets assume you need to get the value of a textbox nested inside an updatepanel into a string you would need to do something like:

Dim txt As TextBox = CType(UpdatePanel1.FindControl("TextBox1"), TextBox)
Dim strVariable As String = txt.Text.ToString()

You can then pass strVariable as a variable to your stored procedure.

thanks for the response.  

it makes sense what you are suggesting.  for some reason though my update panel is not firing when by button is selected.

Hi,

That is because you're trying to run server side code with a button inside a modal panel. By design, server controls inside a modal panel looses their server side capabilities. There are ways around this however. For instance you can add a client attribute to the button in question that performs a postback and then check in the page_load event for the __EVENTTARGET and if it's the button then grab the value of the textbox. I don't have access to my dev box right now (on the iPad...) but can maybe provide a sample tomorrow.

Hi,

Just one more thing, for future reference. An updatepanel and a modalpanel are two completely different things.
