JavaScript runtime error: Unable to get property 'parentNode' of undefined or null reference ajaxcontroltoolkit error

Recently while working with Ajax ModalPopupExtender control, I got the below error: "JavaScript runtime error: Unable to get property 'parentNode' of undefined or null reference".

I was showing the ModalPopupExtender from the code behind file on a button click like below:

protected void btnClick_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        pnlPopupMsg.Visible = true;


And my panel code was like below:

<asp:Panel ID="pnlPopupMsg" runat="server" CssClass="modalPopup" Visible="false">
            <asp:Label ID="lblMessage" runat="server" Text="Here is the message which will come!!!"></asp:Label><br />
            <br />
            <asp:Button ID="btnYes" runat="server" Text="Yes" OnClick="btnYes_Click" />
            <asp:Button ID="btnNo" runat="server" Text="NO" OnClick="btnNo_Click" />

Here the problem was the Visible="false" attribute of the Pannel.

I removed the Visible="false" attribute from the Pannel and it started working.

Hope it will work for you.
