Here I will explain ajax confirmbuttonextender example with modalpopupextender in gridview using


Previously I explained many articles relating to and Ajax and use customized style of confirmation box to delete gridview records. Now I will explain how to use ajax confirmbuttonextender control in gridview to delete records with modalpopupextender in Here I am using same concept (use customized style of confirmation box to delete gridview records) but only change is I am using confirmbuttonextender to implement this concept in

To implement this concept first design table in your database like this

Column Name
Data Type
Allow Nulls
int(set identity property=true)
After that enter some dummy data in table to bind that data to gridview and add AjaxControlToolkit.dll reference to your application you don’t know how to use AjaxControlToolkit no worry check this post how to install AjaxControlToolkit and design your aspx page like this

<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="ajax" %>
<html xmlns="">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">

<asp:ImageButton ID="btnNo" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/Images/btnNo.jpg" />
<asp:Label ID="lblresult" runat="server"/>
If you observe above code I declared different properties to confirmbuttonextender now I will explain each property clearly

TargetControlID - The ID of the element that is used to activate confirmbuttonextender.
DisplayModalPopupID - The ID of the element to display as a modal popup.

After completion our aspx page design add the following namespaces in codebehind


using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
After completion of add namespaces write the following code

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Data Source=SureshDasari;Integrated Security=true;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB");
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (!IsPostBack)
protected void BindUserDetails()
//connection open
//sql command to execute query from database
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Select * from UserDetails", con);
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
//Binding data to gridview
gvDetails.DataSource = ds;
protected void btnYes_Click(object sender, ImageClickEventArgs e)
ImageButton btndetails = sender as ImageButton;
GridViewRow gvrow = (GridViewRow)btndetails.NamingContainer;
Session["UserId"] = gvDetails.DataKeys[gvrow.RowIndex].Value.ToString();
Session["UserName"] = gvrow.Cells[0].Text;
//getting userid of particular row
int userid = Convert.ToInt32(Session["UserId"]);
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("delete from UserDetails where UserId=" + userid, con);
int result = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
if (result == 1)
lblresult.Text = Session["UserName"] + " Details deleted successfully";
lblresult.ForeColor = Color.Green;
VB Code

Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.Drawing
Imports System.Web.UI
Imports System.Web.UI.WebControls
Partial Class VBSample
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Private con As New SqlConnection("Data Source=SureshDasari;Integrated Security=true;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB")
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

If Not IsPostBack Then
End If
End Sub
Protected Sub BindUserDetails()
'connection open
'sql command to execute query from database
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("Select * from UserDetails", con)
Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
Dim ds As New DataSet()
'Binding data to gridview
gvDetails.DataSource = ds
End Sub
Protected Sub btnYes_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ImageClickEventArgs)
Dim btndetails As ImageButton = TryCast(sender, ImageButton)
Dim gvrow As GridViewRow = DirectCast(btndetails.NamingContainer, GridViewRow)
Session("UserId") = gvDetails.DataKeys(gvrow.RowIndex).Value.ToString()
Session("UserName") = gvrow.Cells(0).Text
'getting userid of particular row
Dim userid As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(Session("UserId"))
Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("delete from UserDetails where UserId=" & userid, con)
Dim result As Integer = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
If result = 1 Then
lblresult.Text = Convert.ToString(Session("UserName")) & " Details deleted successfully"
lblresult.ForeColor = Color.Green
End If
End Sub
End Class

if you are generating the textboxes dynamically means you will set id's for that textboxes based on that id's get those values and insert that data into database.
