Line 262: <asp:ButtonField Text="Expense Details" CommandName="Details" />
Line 263: </Columns>

any help?


I did a similar thing a while back but instead of using the data-toggle functionality I called the scripts from the code-behind using the following:

ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, this.GetType(), "ModalView", "<script>$('#ViewEnqDetail').modal('show');</script>", false);

Before the above line you can populate any controls on your modal with data that you would like to show.
