    hi all,

    I have a page to enter some details in database. For update i have save button in the radtoolbar. I already discussed in one of my thread regarding confirm box  when press save button. As per the answer i put onbuttonclicking client event and ask for confirmation and set_Cancel of the args to true if they press cancel in the confirmation box. All working fine.

    Now i implemted validation controls including reuired fdield validator and custom validator to check the mandatory field and check any duplicate name entered. Here i need to ask the confirmation box after all this validation done only. But now before validation the confirm asking.

    In the clientbuttonclicking i just checked whether the inputbox ahve any value and give confirm so i can bypass the confirm box when user not entered the name. But now need to control in the custom validation also. The custom validation checks for database table so i called serverside event to validatite duplication . Now i need a common solution for this. I just ask the confirmation after all this validation simply telling if page.isvalid only i need to ask the confirmation. How can i achieve this?

    Hi Akhil,

    Using client-side confirmation is not an option as you need server-side validation. My suggestion is to split the form in two parts - data entry and confirmation. You'll then have a chance to validate the data after entry.

    For example:

    I hope this helps.

    hi admin,
        I have a work around. but i dont is it correct way or not. anyway i will tell my idea, not yet worked some issues in that also. I think you can help me in this.

    Before please be confirm that any method to cancel the post back explicetly i means from any other conttrol or event?

    Please check the folllwing code in my save button (which is in rad toolbar)

        Protected Sub rtb_Controls_ButtonClick(ByVal sender As ObjectByVal e As Telerik.Web.UI.RadToolBarEventArgs) Handles rtb_Controls.ButtonClick  
                Dim btn As RadToolBarButton = TryCast(e.Item, RadToolBarButton)  
                If btn.CommandName = "Save" Then 
                    If Page.IsValid Then 
                        If hfMessage.Value = "true" Then 
                            'insert function here  
                       End If 
                        ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(Me.GetType(), "a""<script type='text/javascript'>check();</script>")  
                    End If 
                End If 
            Catch ex As Exception  
                PlaceHolder1.Controls.Add(ErrorMsg.TryCatchErrorDisplay(ex.Message.ToString(), True))  
            End Try 
        End Sub 

    Through this i check if the page is valid. then i need to insert. before insert only i need to confirm save from client side confirm box. Here i have an idea. Actually my confirm box message is coming from resource file. So that i saved the message in one hidden field called 'hfMessage'.

    CleintSript.RegisterCleintSideScript is not working here... So i just started with checking hiddenfield
    Befoe insert i can check when the hfmessage value is original message or "true" (this value i will set later). So first time i will get original message so skip the insert funtion . Then called the registerstartup script. This function give the popup and set the user clicked value in the hfMessage field and called the AjaxRequest event. Please check the following javascript...

                function check() {  
                    var hf = document.getElementById("<%= hfMessage.ClientID %>");  
                    if (confirm(hf.value) != true) {  
                        hf.value = "false";  
                    else {  
                        hf.value = "true";  
                    $find("<%= RadAjaxManager1.ClientID %>").ajaxRequest("alert");  
    So that from the ajax_Request event i can check the hfMessage value and insert and close the window. I dont know is this a good idea. Please sugggest about this.
    But the main issue i am facing here is i didnt got the ajaxmanager1 in the check event. Only null returned...

    I need to solve the scenario so please suggest or give any other idea
