Hi there,

As many reported in .NET forums that the modal is not working or disapearing after a couple of seconds here is a solution.

Consider the following scenario:
- grid / editable grid with a column with link control
- a record form to be shown in modal window (with additional details of the grid row)

Solving the puzzle:
1. put an onclick event in link control:
onclick="ShowModal1_show();return false;"  
"return false" prevents the page being refreshed (this is why the modal disapears)

2. the above solution is working as long you don't need to pass a parameter to the record in the modal; in this case you need to let the page to refresh a get the needed parameter from the URL.
To get the modal working put the following script in the onload event of the page

var url = window.location.href;  
if (url.indexOf("parameter_id") > 0) {  
this part of the code should be the last in the onload event of the page

3. Have a button or a link in the modal window with the following code
onclick="ShowModal1_hide();return false;"  
put "return false" only when you don't want the page to refresh.
