Property Value

Type Description

true if a specific animation effect is used; otherwise, false.


Use the EnableAnimation property to control whether a window is invoked using a specific predefined animation effect. When this property is set to false, the window is invoked without any animation. If the EnableAnimation property is set to true, an animation effect specified by the ASPxPopupControlBase.PopupAnimationType property is used to invoke a window.


This example demonstrates the following capabilities of the ASPxPopupControl when its popup window is used in modal mode:

  • The ShowPageScrollbarWhenModal property allows the browser’s vertical scrollbar to be displayed providing users with a capability to scroll the document content while the modal popup window is being shown;

  • The AutoUpdatePosition property controls whether the popup window’s position should be automatically recalculated after performing some popup window resizing or document scrolling operations.
