Dialog shows one second and closes immediately

Hello, I am using SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog. The question is that it pops out and closes immediately.

What I want is I can control the form. I can add buttons on the form. Clicking "Submit" or "Close" it to complete some kind of tasks.
 <asp:Button ID="Edit" runat="server" Text="Edit" OnClientClick="javascript:Edit_Click()">
               
            </asp:Button> 
            <script type="text/javascript">
                              function Edit_Click() {
                                  var options = SP.UI.$create_DialogOptions();

                                  options.title = "My Dialog Title";
                                  options.width = 400;
                                  options.height = 600;
                                  options.url = "/_layouts/test.aspx";
                                  options.showClose=true;
                                  SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog(options);


                              };

                </script>

It is probably closing because of a post back.  Check out ajax tools, http://www.asp.net/ajaxlibrary/download.ashx,  and the modal popup.  There is an example on the page too.  You may want to put it into an updatepanel.

No, I did't use ajax at all . SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog is the new feature of SharePoint 2010.

It is probably because you do not have a dialogReturnValueCallback specificed in your options.  This is the delegate that gets called on dialog close for refreshes, redirects, validatation, etc.  If you don't need to do any of this, then try adding this to your options array:

dialogReturnValueCallback: DialogCallback

Then add this in your script block:

function DialogCallback(dialogResult, returnValue) {
      //Receiver
}

Is it equal to return false for my function?

echefjosefCommented:
No... Your function just does an unstated "return", so no value is actually passed back.  With the callback function, the close of the modal window will execute it.  It has no logic or return values either, so will just "return;" as well, rather than "return false;"

Can we use
<asp:Button ID="Edit" runat="server" Text="Edit" OnClientClick="javascript:Edit_Click(); return false;" />

Open in new window

to prevent postback?
Because it works out.

I don't believe that would cause any issues at all... :)

Maybe this is true.
But when I added return:false, It was working.
