Updateprogress Not Working with Postbacktrigger in Ajax UpdatePanel

Jun 16, 2015

Here I will explain how to solve the problem of “updateprogress not working with postbacktrigger in or updateprogress with postbacktrigger in updatepanel not showing loading image” in using c#, with example. Generally in ajax updatepanel updateprogress will work for asynchronous postback requests but to make it work with ajax postbacktrigger we need to write JavaScript function.

To show updateprogress with postbacktrigger we need to write JavaScript function and need to call that function in button OnClientClick that would be like as shown below

<script type="text/javascript">
function showProgress() {
var updateProgress = $get("<%= UpdateProgress.ClientID %>"); = "block";

If you want to check it in complete example open your aspx page and write the code like as shown below

<html xmlns="">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
<title>Show Loading Image while uploading images using updatepanel</title>
<style type="text/css">
position: fixed;
z-index: 999;
height: 100%;
width: 100%;
top: 0;
background-color: Black;
filter: alpha(opacity=60);
opacity: 0.6;
-moz-opacity: 0.8;
<script type="text/javascript">
function showProgress() {
var updateProgress = $get("<%= UpdateProgress.ClientID %>"); = "block";
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<asp:ScriptManager ID="scriptmanager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>
<asp:UpdatePanel runat="server" ID="updatepanel1" UpdateMode="Conditional">
<div style="align:center; margin-left:350px; margin-top:200px">
<asp:FileUpload ID="uploadfiles1" runat="server" />
<asp:Button ID="btnUpload" Text="Upload" runat="server" onclick="btnUpload_Click" OnClientClick="showProgress()" /><br />
<asp:Label ID="lblMsg" runat="server"/>
<asp:PostBackTrigger ControlID="btnUpload" />
<asp:UpdateProgress ID="UpdateProgress" runat="server" AssociatedUpdatePanelID="updatepanel1">
<div class="overlay">
<div style=" z-index: 1000; margin-left: 350px;margin-top:200px;opacity: 1;-moz-opacity: 1;">
<img alt="" src="loading.gif" />

After completion of aspx page create new folder uploads in your application to upload files and add following namespaces in codebehind

C# Code

using System;
using System.IO;

After completion of adding namespaces you need to write the code like as shown below

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
protected void btnUpload_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
string fileName = Path.GetFileName(uploadfiles1.FileName);
uploadfiles1.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("~/uploads/") + fileName);
lblMsg.Text = "File Uploaded Successfully";


Imports System.IO
Partial Class VBCode
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
End Sub
Protected Sub btnUpload_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
Dim fileName As String = Path.GetFileName(uploadfiles1.FileName)
uploadfiles1.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("~/uploads/") & fileName)
lblMsg.Text = "File Uploaded Successfully"
End Sub
End Class
