Issue with modal dialog



While performing client-side validations or adding embedded page to a list on click of a button or link, when the modal dialog is open, the values are posted before the submission. However, the value is still present on the Clipboard on clicking Cancel or closing it. The remaining values which pass the validations also remain on the Clipboard after the user clicks the Close icon or the Cancel button. However, the original values must be restored after closing or clicking Cancel.
