prevent opening a new window in modal window using content page


I have a content page with a button

and when I click it, I am trying to open a modal window

using javascript:showmodaldialog (this is a normal aspx page, I mean not a content page).

In the modal window. I have a asp button and when I click the button,I am trying to do some validation and the close the modal window.

what is h appening is, when I  click the button my code is executing and after that a webpage is opening again and the cotents which are in modal window are displayed in the webpage.

how to avoid this.


 <asp:button id="btn" text="xyz" runat="server"/>


button click code.


my abc.aspx is not a cotent page.

it contains



<asp:button id="button1" runat="server" text="click" onclick="button1_click"/>


button click code of abc.aspx page.( here I am trying to close the modal window

StringBuilder sb= new StringBuilder();

sb.Append("<script language='javascript'>");



this.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), @"clientScript", sb.ToString());

when the code gets executed, it is opening a new page and trying to close that page but not closing the modal window.How should I close the modal window and prevent the opening of new webpage.

 Modal window's alway open a new window when you try to close it.

Write a blank webpage, and only place a iframe into it. and nest the webpage you actually open as a modal window in the iframe. Open the webpage with iframe instead opening the primary webpage. In short, place you webpage into a iframe.

 Actually, not necessary. Just include the following tag in the head section of your HTML code:

PDFS open in new window, used to open in FF window with URL showing
I don't recall changing anything except maybe the application Firefox is supposed to use for PDFs, from Adobe to Foxit Reader. If When I opened PDF files from the address bar I used to still have the address bar showing. This was handy for calling up IRS forms, then changing the "f" in the address bar to "i" to call up the instructions. Now, at least with Foxit Reader, it opens in a separate window without showing the actual URL downloaded in the Firefox address bar. It used to open in the same window as I recall, showing the address of the downloaded file. ...
