Hi Suresh Sir,

I using ur model pop up to open a signup table visible to register user, the thing is due to AutoPostBack="True" in Drop-down list and Radio-button list (am using Drop-down list for security questions loading & using Radio-button list to select user mode) the popup is getting hide , so can't further proceed.

Please do the needful as earliest as possible Sir.
