Server.HTMLDecode works but modal popup doesn't close

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


As the title of this post already mentioned, I'm using a modal popup window to edit rows in the gridview. One column in the gridview contains an URL code. When I fire the edit button a popup opens and show the URL in a textbox in this format: <http://blablaba/re?add=14&t=2" />

When I am using the Server.HTMLDecode function, the modal popup doesn't close anymore.

I am using the following code:

<div style="text-align: right; width: 262px">
    <asp:Button ID="BtnCancel" runat="server" Text="Cancel" OnClick="BtnCancel_Click" />

<asp:LinkButton ID="lnkFake" runat="server"></asp:LinkButton>
<asp:LinkButton ID="lnkFakeOk" runat="server"></asp:LinkButton>

<ajaxToolkit:ModalPopupExtender ID="MPE_edit" runat="server" DropShadow="true" PopupControlID="pnlAddEdit"
                TargetControlID="lnkFake" CancelControlID="lnkFakeOk" BackgroundCssClass="modalBackground">

txtURL.Text = Server.HtmlDecode(row.Cells[3].Text);

The funny thing is, when I change it to: txtURL.Tex

Modal Popup Extender server side Show() does not work


Hello. Im using a modal popup extender to tell my user that the page has successfully been updated and then redirect them to a new page with the ok button. The thing is that i do NOT want this extender to fire when i press the button. I would rather call the Show() function myself. Right now i have a simple test page with a button that calls the popup extender Show() function but Nothing happens. If i set the targetID to the button it works but Im not able to call it through codebehind.

Any thoughts?

How to close the sharepoint modal dialog and refresh the parent page using Server side API?

I am trying to find a way to close a modal page that has been opened with the click event of ribbon control. Once the modal dialog is opened, I'm showing 'OK' button for the user to confirm some action on the respective list item. If the user clicks on 'OK', I'm performing some action on the listitem using server side code. Here the problem for me is, once the action is completed on this listItem, I need to close the dialog and refresh the parent page (AllItem.aspx) using *sharepoint server side

I'm aware that for closing the dialog we have JS code "SP.UI.ModalDialog.commonModalDialogClose". But this is not useful for me, because I should first run some action on the listitem and once that action is complete, then only I should close this dialog.

Crawl doesn't work and Query server is not responding; Search works only for old (crawled) contents


We have following three servers with MOSS 2007 STD deployed in SharePoint server farm,


App01- Query Server

App02 - Index Server (We are using this server as dedicated web front end computer for crawling)

SPDBServer - SQL 2005


Search was working fine till 01/05/2008 and it stopped working after this date only for new contents meaning search is still working fine for the old contents which were added before 01/05/2008 but not for new contents added after 01/05/2008.


We have been working to find out reasons why did that happen? We have found following event ids on Query server,


Event ID:10042 - A new query machine, 'App01', has been added to the query rotation based on changes to farm topology.

Modal popup window in ASP.Net

A Masked div or modal popup window is a child window created from the parent window which prevents the user from interacting with parent window before he returns to the parent application.

HttpHandler works with Visual Studio Development Server debugging, but not otherwise


Hi all,

I'm new to HttpHandlers.  I am writing an HttpHandler that reads uploaded files directly from the request stream to provide progress that can be queried using an AJAX request.  For large files, this seems to be faster than having ASP.NET load the file contents into Request.Files and then streaming the file from there to wherever it goes (Linq to SQL into a VARBINARY column in an SQL Server database.)

My HttpHandler works perfectly when I'm debugging using the Visual Studio Development Server, but doesn't work otherwise.  The application pool for this application in IIS 7 is set to run in Classic Mode, and the Handler Mappings screen in IIS says that I must manage managed handlers in system.web/httpHandlers. 

I set up in my applications Web.config file.

<add verb="GET,POST" path="*.upload" type="Namespace.For.UploadHandler, AssemblyForUploadHandler"/>

It works great, so long as I don't debug with the "Use Local IIS Web server" option.

What else do I need to do to get this to work?

ASP Development Server doesn't appear to execute JQuery?


Experienced a really strange problem today. I added a jquery script to my MVC application to collapse sections of a View (via divs).

Pretty standard stuff, he showed me the script working before hand and it works.

However any time I would run my MVC app via Visual Studio the script would not work. I changed browsers, re-imported the code from source control and basically me and my co-worker banged our heads together for some time trying to figure out why the exact same code was running different on two machines.

Publishing the MVC app to our web server and running worked for both machines but for some bizarre reason when I ran it on my VS it never did.

One thought that came to mind is that by VS uses the cassini default lightweight webserver for debugging, whereas my co-worker is using IIS.

This seems to suggest then that the ASP Development server does not support JQuery. Is this true and if not, what could the problem be?

AsyncPostBackTrigger doesn't work on server..


 I am new to asp.net and ajax. I have a problem while using update panel.
I have a tabcontainer with 3-4 tab panels. Inside one tab panel there is a cancel button. What i want to do is to when i hit cancel button in code behind i change active tab index to 0 so that tabcontainer shows first tab panel. I have update panel around tab container. This works at my localhost. But on server its behavior is very random. Sometimes it works sometime it doesn't. Unfortunately I am not able to debug it also. I don't know how to debug code on server. As on localhost it works correctly so I am kind of stuck.
