    ModalPopupExtender is also a part of your page class.so ultimately you have to do a complete refresh or postback.Instead of this use Iframes.

    Hi I have used Iframes. Please find the code below,

    <ItemTemplate>                                                       <table width="100%">


    <td align="left">


    <asp:Button ID="btnUpdate" Width="55px"  runat="server" Text="Modify" Visible='<%# isButtonVisible(Convert.ToString(Eval("Accessarea")),Convert.ToString(Eval("Newaccessarea"))) %>' OnClientClick='<%# Eval("ID","Javascript:openwindow(\"UpdateAssetDetails.aspx?ID={0}\")") %>'/>                                                                        

    <asp:ModalPopupExtender ID="modalPopUpUpdateAsset1" runat="server" BackgroundCssClass="ModalPopupBG"  TargetControlID="btnUpdate"  PopupControlID="DivEditWindow" CancelControlID="btnClose" OnCancelScript="calcelScript()">


                                                                              <div id="DivCancel" style="display:none">

                                                                     <input type="button" id="btnClose" />


                                                                               <div id="DivEditWindow" style="display: none; overflow:hidden" class="popupConfirmation">

                                                                                     <iframe id="IframeEdit" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" height="400px" width="500px">






                                                                           <td align="left">

                                                                              <asp:Button ID="lnkAddDetails" runat="server" Width="55px" Text="Add" OnClientClick='<%# Eval("ID","Javascript:openwindow(\"AddAssetDetails.aspx?ID={0}\");return false;")%>'/>

                                                                               <asp:ModalPopupExtender ID="modalPopUPAddAsset" runat="server" BackgroundCssClass="ModalPopupBG" TargetControlID="lnkAddDetails" PopupControlID="DivEditWindow" CancelControlID="btnClose" OnCancelScript="calcelScript()"></asp:ModalPopupExtender>                                                                  





    Java Script Code :


    function openwindow(url) { 

    var frame = $get('IframeEdit');

     frame.src = url;       



           function calcelScript() {



    Please assit me this. I think I am reloading the page. Can you please advise me whether i need to reload the child page after the close button in child window. even that i am reloading.

    Use panels instead of divs.Morover instead of jquery show and hide use server side show and hide methods on button click.This will ensure proper page refresh.

    frame.src = url; should load the child page. this works good in IE 9 but the value gets loaded in the db. When i click the same button in grid again the modal pop up is opening with the old values.

    You can use normal popup or AJAX modal popup with a frame in it.
