I use webdialog as a wizard. The wizard requires heavily server-side operation. Therefore, i need to do asynchronous postback. However, if i do so, the modality of the webdialog is lost. The background shadow disappears, the webdialog comes back its initial position and the modality behavior is lost. Here is my setup roughly:
<asp:Button ID="Button1" OnClick="Button1_Click">
When I click Button1, the server side operation is done but the modality of the webdialog is lost. How can i handle this problem?
Thanks in advance...
I am trying to do the same thing, using the WebDialog for wizard. Looking at the complexity of this, is Telerik RadWindow a better fit for this initiative?
Any suggestion is appreciated.
I decided to switch to the ModalPopupExtender that is part of the AJAX.net toolkit. It is working perfectly with async postbacks and is VERY easy to setup. The only downside is that you are responsible for the look and feel of the dialog (no themes to pick from etc). Another plus is that it is much easier to find help and examples on this control because the community is much more active with alot of posts on it.
