I'm using a ModalPopupExtender to display a panel and then calling a server-side mtheod from there.  It works great...EXCEPT the form remembers the data entered (OK, so I clear that, no problem) and, if I refresh the page (F5), the server-event gets called again?  Any ideas?


<asp:ModalPopupExtender ID="LinkButton1_ModalPopupExtender" runat="server" DynamicServicePath=""
                                                        Enabled="True" TargetControlID="LinkButton1" PopupControlID="pnlModal" BackgroundCssClass="modalBackground"
                                                        DropShadow="true"  >
                                                    </asp:ModalPopupExtender>
                                                    <asp:Panel ID="pnlModal" runat="server" CssClass="modalPopup" Style="display: none" EnableViewState="false">
                                                        <table>

It looks like your LinkButton1 click event is being triggered when a refresh/postback occurs, causing your modal popup to trigger again and thereby triggering your server-event.

I'm sorry, Im not sure I'm following.  Would you break that down a bit with a suggestion on how to correct it?

OK.  Can you provide a code snippet of your code behind especially the point where the modal popup is triggered if possible?

What I was saying is that it looks like something in your code-behind is triggering your LinkButton1 (the one in your TargetControlID in the modal popup).  It would help us to clear this out if you could provide some code snippet if possible.

this is all I have in the code behind for these controls:

protected void SubmitRating_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            SellerDB sellerDB = new SellerDB();
            string results = "";
            int userId = PortalSecurity.GetUserID();
            int rating = rtgSelectRating.CurrentRating;
            string comments = txtComments.Value;
            bool isAnonymous = chkSubmitAnonymously.Checked;
            bool isSuccess = sellerDB.InsertUpdateVendorRating(
                   sellerID,
                   0,
                   userId,
                   rating,
                   comments,
                   isAnonymous,
                   ref results
                );
}

OK.  I have a suggestion.  Use an UpdatePanel to control the triggers in your modal popup.  I modified your code below.  Also, when you show or hide the modal popup, do you use Me.LinkButton1_ModalPopupExtender.Show  and  Me.LinkButton1_ModalPopupExtender.Hide?  Also with the UpdatePanel UpdateMode set to "Conditional", you can trigger a partial postback using updPnlModal.Update method.   I hope this helps.

I've tried your code as suggested, but the method SubmitRating_Click still fires on page refresh.  It's as if the script is being called from page load...

I'm not explicity calling the modal popup Show and Hide methods.

OK.  Try modifying the UseSubmitBehavior of your Button Control to "False" and test it out.

<asp:Button ID="btnSubmitRating" runat="server" Text="Submit" OnClick="SubmitRating_Click" UseSubmitBehavior="False"  />

By the way, Is btnSubmitRating the OK button in your ModalPopupExtender?  If this is the case you should set the OKControlID property to this button.

Check the following references in using a ModalPopupExtender.  This might help.

I ended up needing to refresh the base page after submit, so I explicity call a Response.Redirect to itself.  This fixed the problem.
