Can we display a custom web part (developed in visual studio 2010) in a modal dialog pop-up? If yes then how can we do that... any tutorials or article?

    As per below posters, yes you can. A WEbPart is nothing more than a ASCX (Server control). Put the custom web part on a page somewhere and open that page using the SharePont ModalDialog Object.

You can show any page using eg SP.UI.ModalDialog. You could just add your WebPart to a page, and link to it:

<a title="aTitle" onclick="javascript:SP.UI.ModalDialog.ShowPopupDialog('http://link/to/page/with/webpart.aspx');return false;">
  • Hey, that shouldn't be necessary. SP.UI.Dialog.$1h add ?IsDlg=1 , in fact it will add another if you have one in your url. Like this: ?IsDlg=1&IsDlg=1 Commented Oct 7, 2014 at 8:10
  • Ah, true, ?IsDlg=1 is not needed in the URL.

Yes. You can place web part in any page and show this page in dialog. How to call dialog: MSDN: SP.UI.ModalDialog.showModalDialog(options) Method

<script type=”text/javascript”>
 function OpenDialog(URL) {
  var options = SP.UI.$create_DialogOptions();
  options.url = URL;
  options.width = 600;
  options.height = 400;
