showModalDialog and postbacks in ASP.NET

Posted by Virendra Dugar on March 23, 2009

I learned something new today that when window.showModalDialog is used to open a modal window on the client from parent page using  javascript. And whenever postback occurs in the modal window, it would open up a new window.  A normal works fine, this is the problem only with modal window.

Finally I found a solution which is very simple by just including the below tag in the <head> section of the modal Window.

<base target="_self"/>

 And also we need to set the output cache property to “1” otherwise next time when you try to open the modal window, it will take it from cache.

<% @ OutputCache Duration="1" VaryByParam="none"%>
