ModalPopupExtender background css not coming when showing from code behind in asp.net

Sometimes while calling the ModalPopupExtender the background css class will not appear, In this post we will discuss about this solution.

Also you can check out my previous posts on:

In my requirement I was showing the modalpopup from the code behind file and for this, I took a button and made that as Visible="false", check below:

<asp:Button ID="btnForAjax" runat="server" Text="" Visible="false" />
        <ajaxtoolkit:modalpopupextender id="ModalPopupExtender1" runat="server" backgroundcssclass="modalBackground"
            popupcontrolid="pnlPopupMsg" targetcontrolid="btnForAjax">

Here the problem was I was setting Visible="false" for btnForAjax.

The solution is we should remove the Visible="false" and we can put Style="display: none" like below:

<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="" Style="display: none"/>

Now it should work fine.
