asp.net modal web page

Posted on 2014-02-04

I am using Visual Studio 2013 to develop an asp.net webpage (c# language).  I need suggestions on how to achieve the following:

1. Have a user click a button
2. Popup a window or page that redirects the user to another page (on a different site) but will not allow the user to edit the current page until they make a selection in the new page.
3. Once they make the selection on the other page then transfer the selection back to the original page.

I did this in a .net windows application using the "WebBrowser" control.  I would open a form with the web browser control as show dialog and then I would have a menu button on the web browser form that transferred the data back and closed the form.  However, I am not sure how to achieve this in the asp.net world.

Thanks for your help.

I have never done it with a page on a different site, but you should be able to open the page within a Ajax Toolkit Modal Pop Extender. Maybe by putting the new page within an IFrame?
