Hi Dan and Team,

In a recent post:

I've gotten that bit working and the functionality I require working...

I now need to close the modal popup box - I've tried various combinations of Modal.Close, with and without parameters (this), (this, "OK"), (this, null) but this doesn't close the modal box from within the code-behind file..

Please help..

As an addendum - The modal form links off to another page...
Both source and destination web forms use UpdatePanels..

How do I overcome this additional complexity please?

Thanks & Regards

See also the explanation here:

1. The source page using UpdatePanel should be no problem (you open the modal using manual JavaScript).

2. There might be a problem with the target page if you want to use the server-side helper to close the modal dialog. The UpdatePanel intercepts PostBacks and the helper may not work properly.

You should be able to close the modal dialog from the server-side using ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript:

ScriptManager1.RegisterStartupScript(typeof(Page), "close", "parent.DayPilot.ModalStatic.close();");
