Modal Box Thoughts

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am hoping to get some suggestions on the best route to go to implement a Modal dialogue box.

My requirements are:

1) Be modal

2) Be reusuable -- I thought about creating it as a Usercontrol and pass in whatever string to display

3) Have the option to include buttons. Such as Ok, Delete, etc.

4) Not be a true popup and hence be blocked by popup blockers.

I have looked into Ajax's AlwaysVisibleControl or Modal Pop-up..

But would like to get input on the best approach. Thanks for your time.

Pass a grid column value to a Modal


Hi, I have a requirement to hide a field called details on a gridview and show it in a jQuery modal dialog when users click on the Customer ID hyperlink. This grid is created programmatically. I will be hiding the details column via the CSS display:none property. Does some one know how can I pass the grid's selected hidden column value to the modal? Here is some of the code I started:

            GridView mygrid = new GridView();
            //.....................................More columns code for the grid

            //Here is where I need to pass the Details column value associated with the customer ID field selected to the Modal and open the Modal dialog.            
            HyperLinkField linkField = new HyperLinkField();
            string[] dataNavigateUrlFields = { "CustomerID" };
            linkField.DataTextField = "CustomerID";

Dynamic Data Entities Modal GridViewPager not showing


I am using the ModalEF template, converted to a web application.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Refreshing a Jquery modal dialog after closing another Jquery modal dialog


I have one aspx page which contains a webpart. The structure of the webpart is:

Webpart(holds one user control say UC1)

      UC1-> contains another user control say (UC2) in a <div>, which I am going to show as a popup on clicking of a link button inside a gridview in UC1.

      UC2-> contain another user control say (UC3) in a <div>, which I am going to show as a popup on clicking of a button inside in UC2.

That means -> UC1(main page) ------->(Onclick) One JQuery popup(UC2)--------------->(OnClick) One Jquery popup(UC3) here UC2 is still remaining in focus and UC3 will be another Jquery popup on UC2.

Now my requirement is when i fill the Jquery popup(UC3) and click on save button in UC3, I would like to close UC3 Jquery popup and refresh the gridview inside UC2 Jquery popup without closing it.

Is this possible?(please explain the logic if found in terms of Jquery, but not in terms of normal popup windows)

Did anything change with modal dialog override GetCustomBuilder() in 2010?

I have several web parts in 2007 that override the GetCustomBuilder() method with the HtmlDesignerAttribute set to BrowserBuilderType.Dynamic in order to call aspx pages for custom UI on webbrowsable properties when you click the "..." in the EditorPart rather than just launching the default text area modal dialog. From http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.sharepoint.webpartpages.webpart.getcustombuilder.aspx it looks like everything is supposed to work the same way in 2010. But it's not. No matter what I've tried, the only thing I can get to load is the standard _layouts/zoombldr.aspx dialog. I even tried making a clone of zoombldr.aspx (named test.aspx), added another button to tell the difference and call it explicitly, but it didn't load. I've debugged and am confident GetCustomBuilder() is returning correct URLs to the custom aspx pages (and they load fine when requested directly). I've searched hi and lo without success in finding a solution. Any ideas? Many thanks!
