How can I create a Dialog control from the server-side. I saw this post (http://www.syncfusion.com/forums/119276/create-dialog-in-server-side) but Works for MVC, And I need for ASP.NET.

I've this code
Public Sub ShowDialog(texto As String)
       Dim Properties As New Models.DialogProperties() With {.Title = "Prueba",
           .Content = texto,
           .EnableModal = True,
           .IsResponsive = True,
           .ShowOnInit = True,
           .CloseOnEscape = True
       Dim DialogToShow As New Dialog("dr" & DateTime.Now.Ticks.ToString, Properties)
End Sub
But I have this error

Hi Oscar,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.

The reported issue will occur if the object returns null value as the result. We have to create and set the required properties to the Dialog control and then add it to the page / corresponding element as highlighted in the following code snippet.


Protected Sub ShowDialog(Sender As Object, e As Syncfusion.JavaScript.Web.ButtonEventArgs)

        Dim dial As New Syncfusion.JavaScript.Web.Dialog()

        dial.ShowOnInit = True

        dial.IsResponsive = True

        dial.Title = "Preua"


    End Sub


For your convenience we have prepared a sample to create Dialog in server side and the same can be downloaded from the following location.


Kindly check with the above sample. If still you face the problem then please revert us by modifying the sample along with the replication procedure in which we can able to reproduce the issue in our end.
