I am wroking to add a gridview to my website with using the javascript, I have used
- commandField and added the Delete, and Edit Buttons, with alert message of javascript to show the messagebox.
- also used the navigation for each 5 pages.

All that is used inside UpdatePanel of Ajax, but whenever I click Edit or Delete buttons the alert message does not appear, and if I removed the UpdatePanel it works but the navigation load the page!

I have tried to use the triggers inside the update panel;

<asp:PostBackTrigger ControlID="GridView1" />

that makes the buttons work, but stops the un-moving or un-loading of the page.

also used
<asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="GridView1" />

the buttons stop working, but the the navigation works.

Although, I cannot use both triggers.

Please Help!

How have you implemented "the alert message does not appear"?

Sunasara this is the code:

<script type="text/javascript">
        function ToggleRowColor(element) {
            if ( == 'cyan') {
       = '#5691da';
       = 'hand';
       = 'none';
            else {
       = 'cyan';
       = 'hand';
       = 'underline';

                    <asp:button id="btnFirst" runat="server" commandname="Page" cssclass="btn" commandargument="First">

protected void GridView1_RowUpdated(object sender, GridViewUpdatedEventArgs e)
        if (e.Exception != null)
            string x = e.Exception.Message; ;
            Response.Write(@"<script language='javascript'>alert('" + x + "');</script>");
            Response.Write(@"<script language='javascript'>alert('Updated Successfully');</script>");
