Cannot Obtain Selected Value from RadioButtonList within A ModalPopupExtender

Hi All,

I have 2 controls within a Panel control which is associated to a ModalPopupExtender so that the panel opens within a modal window.

The controls I have within my panel are a button and a RadioButtonList. When I fire the button Onclick event (which fires fine), I can't seem to obtain the selected value from my RadioButtonList.

I have taken out the 2 controls into a simple page and performed the same Onclick event and it works fine so I presume there is an issue with having the RadioButtonList open in a modal??

Can anyone help with a solution?

[ignore the irrelevant INT conversion as I have just extracted the relevant code from something larger]
if (RadioButtonListFonts.SelectedIndex > -1)
        {
            //get font item from db
            int intEngraveFontID = Convert.ToInt32(RadioButtonListFonts.SelectedValue);
                litChosenFontID.Text = intEngraveFontID.ToString();
            }
        }

Are all the controls in the same UpdatePanel?

I'm not using an update panel.

Heres my code... I just can't seem to work it out.

THanks,

try using simple button instead of image button and check whether it works.

HI mayank_joshi,

Nope, the same is happening. Its as though the RadioButtonList control's viewstate isn't stored??

I'm an idiot sometimes!... I found the problem... I was populating the RadioButtonList control from my Page_Load event and I was missing the Page.IsPostBack check so everytime my button was being clicked it was just repopulating the  RadioButtonList  and clearing the currently selected item.

Thanks for you time anyway.
