On button click in VBnet, how can I execute a codebehind function before opening a modal dialog?

Within my application's gridview data selection process, a user can select items and then click a button to proceed. Following this, a codebehind function should run to process the selected items, and once complete, a modal window should open to display the processed data. However, I am unable to achieve both of these tasks by clicking a single button. While the button onclick event correctly fires the codebehind, the modal fails to open. I would prefer not to redirect the page and instead use the ModalPopupExtender. This requires the use of a separate button, which can be simulated by a JavaScript function. My challenge is determining how to execute this function after running the codebehind. Although I have attempted to use the register script, it fails to execute. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.

To clarify, I cannot trigger the opening of the modal window after executing the codebehind using a single button click. I have attempted to use the register script, but it was unsuccessful in executing.

You can use the ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript method in code behind to execute JavaScript functions after running the codebehind. Here is an example of how to use it:
protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    // Your codebehind function here
    // ...

    // Register the script to execute after the codebehind function
    string script = "alert('Hello!');";
    ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(this.GetType(), "alert", script, true);
You can replace the alert('Hello!'); with your own JavaScript function. This will execute after your codebehind function is complete. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

It sounds like you're trying to execute a JavaScript function after completing some server-side processing. One way to achieve this is to use the Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript method to register a JavaScript function to be executed on the client side after the code behind has completed its processing. First, create a JavaScript function that triggers the modal popup, for example:
function openModalPopup() {
  var modalPopup = $find("ModalPopupExtender1");;
Then, in your code behind, call RegisterStartupScript to register this function to be executed on the client side:
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, GetType(), "openModalPopup", "openModalPopup();", true);
This will execute the openModalPopup function on the client side, which will show the modal popup. Make sure that the ID of your ModalPopupExtender is "ModalPopupExtender1", or replace it with the appropriate ID in your JavaScript function.
