Jquery Dialog Form

Jquery Dialog Form

Jquery Dialog Form

I have the following code which opens up a form in a jquery dialog.


<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="dialog.aspx.vb" Inherits="dialog" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
<link href="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.9.2/themes/ui-darkness/jquery-ui.css" rel="stylesheet">
	<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
	<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.9.2/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
<form runat="server">
    <div id="dialog" title="Dialog">
        <td>Email Address:</td>
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />

    <input type="button" id="button" value="Click to open the dialog">
	    $(function () {
	            autoOpen: false
	        $("#button").on("click", function () {


I have some .net code on the Button1 which adds a new record to the database, however whenever I click on the button it doesn't fire the event.

Also I need it to close the dialog form as well.

Any ideas.

RE: Jquery Dialog Form

I think that may be old jquery syntax.


$("#button").click(function () {

RE: Jquery Dialog Form

Humm, ok not old syntax... my bad
put the script at the top of the page and try it.

RE: Jquery Dialog Form

it looks like the jquery selector is looking for an element with the id "button", but the actual element's id is "Button1".

good luck!

Good catch Mark!

RE: Jquery Dialog Form

Hi, thanks for your help.

I managed to get it working with


<script type="text/javascript">
	    $(document).ready(function () {
	        $("#dialog").dialog({ autoOpen: false, modal: true, width: '400px', title: "Add New Item"  })
	        $("#AddNew").click(function () {
	            return false;

	        $('#<%= AddNewButton.ClientID %>').click(function () {
	            __doPostBack('<%= AddNewButton.ClientID %>', '');

RE: Jquery Dialog Form

Any idea why the code on my button would be firing twice.

I have code that inserts a record into a table and it adds the record twice.

RE: Jquery Dialog Form

I would imagine it's because you are manually triggering a postback. An asp.net button, by default, already triggers a postback.
