I have a page with SVG circles on it.  When user clicks on a circle I want an AJAX ModalPopupExtender to open so I can display data in it etc.  

After the code is the error I am getting.

For simplicity, I am only showing one circle in the code.

<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="OP.aspx.vb" Inherits="OP.OrderProg" %>

<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="ajaxToolkit" %>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html xmlns="">

<head runat="server">
      <style type="text/css">

        /* Set background color of web page */ 
        body {background-color: #F7F7F7;}

         /* >>> (AJAX)   ModalPopupExtender <<< */
                background-color: Black;
                filter: alpha(opacity=90);
                opacity: 0.5;

        /* Confirm */
                background-color: #FFFFFF;
                width: 300px;
                height: 173px;

        .modalPopupConfirm .header

                line-height: 24px;
                text-align: center;
                cursor: pointer;

        .modalPopupConfirm .yes
                background-color: #EDEDED;

Open in new window

When I run the code and click on the circle I get "JavaScript runtime error: 'mpeConfirm' is undefined".

I also tried setting the TargetControlID="circle1" and that gives error "The TargetControlID of 'mpeConfirm' is not valid. A control with ID 'circle1' could not be found."

What is the simplest way to trigger this ModalPopExtender when the SVG circle is clicked?
