You can use the ModalPopup control from ajax control toolkit. See the following link:

In this day and age, your best bet is to find a pre-made one rather than build your own. If jQuery is an option, I would try to use one of its components. Here is one example: http://www.thewhyandthehow.com/jquery-modal-dialog/

Or you can use the ModalPopup in the AJAX Control Toolkit, but I would tend to favor a javascript-only solution such as jQuery.

And then there are commercial 3rd party components, such as ComponentArt's Dialog control: http://aspnetajax.componentart.com/control-specific/dialog/features/nested_modal/WebForm1.aspx. But I wouldn't spend the money unless you have other compelling reasons to use it.

And finally, if you really want to build your own, download the source code for the ModalPopup in the AJAX Control Toolkit and use that for inspiration.

Since jQuery is client-side, you need to create javascript as required by the specifications: http://jqueryui.com/demos/dialog/

There are a variety of ways to do this in ASP.NET and it has been discussed a million times, so I won't repeat that here. You should have no trouble finding multiple examples.
