You can do this in code after processing the OnClick:

MyModalPopupExtender.Show();
MyModalPopupExtender.Hide();

I have managed to  display the model pop up extender,on the click of the Save button when user is about to insert a new record. THe model pop up appears, but it does not disable the rest of the window.
<InsertItemTemplate>
                                 <asp:Panel ID="pnlUserNotification" runat="server" CssClass="" OkControlID="btnOKUserNotifcation" CancelControlID="btnCancelUserNotification" DropShadow="true">
                                     <div style="width:400px; height:400px; background-color:White">

                                     <br />
                                      <asp:Button runat="server" ID="btnOKUserNotification" Text="OK" />
                                       <asp:Button runat="server" ID="btnCancelUserNotification" Text="Cancel" />

If you want it to appear disabled, you need to apply a CSS class when the modal popup is displayed.  You need to add a BackgroundCssClass to your MPE and then define a CSS class to support it, e.g.

.modalPopup
{
    background-color: #000;
    filter: alpha(opacity=70);
    opacity: 0.7;
}

You can add the CSS class anywhere it makes sense to do so for your solution; the original project CSS is as good a place as any.  Once the CSS is class is defined and applied with the extender you should see the desired effect.  Good luck!
