how to add an event handler to a control from a modal popup?

I'm programming in visual basic for the first time, and using AJAX - I've done this before but a couple of years ago and I'm very stuck! I have searched for topics but they all assume a knowledge of the framework which I think I'm missing. Any help is very much appreciated.

Here's my markup:

<%@ Page Title="Report Execution" Language="vb" MasterPageFile="~/Site.Master" AutoEventWireup="false"
CodeBehind="reportExecution.aspx.vb" Inherits="RDMI.reportExecution" %>

<%@ Register assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" tagprefix="asp" %>

<asp:Content ID="HeaderContent" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="HeadContent">
<asp:Content ID="BodyContent" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent">
Report Execution
Welcome to the RDMI Report Execution page. Please select from the following reports:
<asp:Panel ID="panelReports" runat="server" Height="216px">
<asp:Button ID="btnRDMI520" runat="server" Text="Inspection Outcomes Report"
BackColor="#D8D9DB" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#00539F" />
<asp:modalpopupextender id="RDMI520_popup" runat="server" cancelcontrolid="btnNo"
targetcontrolid="btnRDMI520" popupcontrolid="popupPanel"
popupdraghandlecontrolid="popupHeader" drag="true" backgroundcssclass="backgroundPopup" OkControlID="btnYes" />
<span id="statusSpan" class="status"></span><br />
<asp:Panel ID="popupPanel" style="display: none" runat="server">
<div class="comparisonPopup">
<div class="comparisonPopupHeader" id="popupHeader"
style="font-size: 20px; font-weight: bold; color: #D8D9DB; background-color: #00539F" >Execute Report
<div class="popupBody" style="font-size=16px; font-weight=bold;">
<p>Would you like run this report with a comparison?</p>
<div class="Controls">
<input id="btnYes" type="button" value="Yes" onclick="btnYes_Click"/>
<input id="btnNo" type="button" value="No" onclick="btnNo_Click"/>

And so I want to add an event handler to the onclick events of the buttons which are in my popup box. I know I've done this before but I can't find my old code or remember how. If I need to plug in javascript to do this, any pointers to articles would be much appreciated as I'm at my wits end here!

Obviously I have tried the obvious -

Protected Sub btnYes_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles btnYes.Click
End Sub

This says that the 'Handles clause requires a WithEvents variable defined in the containing type or one of its base types.'

Any assistance gratefully received and I will mark as answer if successful.


You need to use jQuery ajax which is used to call page methods from view e.g

          type: "POST",
            url: "PageName.aspx/MethodName",
            data: "{}",
               contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                dataType: "json",
                success: function(msg) {
                  // Do something interesting here.

Above code should be embedded in btn.click function of javascript.

Moreover search on google you will easily find many articles on using jQuery ajax.
