[RESOLVED]modal popup form

can someone guide me on the best approach to do the following….

when a user clicks a particular link, (a PDF), a modal box pops up and shows a few form fields for the user to fill in before clicking ok, then the modal box closes, and the PDF document appears for reading/download….

Google "create pdf from asp.net".  Your question is more pdf related than modal popup related.  Doing modal popups is simple, again just google "modal pop-up asp.net" or look at the jQuery dialog plug-in.

sorry im not looking to create a PDF its just the click on the link shows a modal box first and requests the users name and email before they are able to view/download the PDF they clicked on….

Probably an idea to start here


or maybe this if the above is too basic


Again google for "modal box asp.net" and you’ll find lots of examples already out there.

Hi mark-1961,

From your description, I suppose you want to create a dialog form with name and email field and a submit button. If that is the case, you could use jQuery dialog UI.

Here is a sample, you could refer to it.

    <link href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.9.2/themes/ui-darkness/jquery-ui.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.9.2/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
    <script src="js/dialog.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function () {
            $(function () {
                    autoOpen: false
                $("#button").on("click", function () {
            // Validating Form Fields.....
            $("#submit").click(function (e) {
        <div class="container">
            <div class="main">
                <div id="dialog" title="Dialog Form">
                    <form action="" method="post">
                        <input id="name" name="name" type="text">
                        <input id="email" name="email" type="text">
                        <input id="submit" type="submit" value="Submit">
                <h2>jQuery Dialog Form Example</h2>
                <p>Click below button to see jQuery dialog form.</p>
                <input id="button" type="button" value="Open Dialog Form">
