Upload file control intefering with javacript and Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance?

Ok I'm trying to use the dreaded Upload File control and it's not within an UpdatePanel. Here's what I have, I'm using jQuery to display messages on the client side from the server. One of the things I'm doing is I'm setting up a script to run using: Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManager.getInstance().add_endRequest(iamloading); and in my iamloading I have: function imaloading() {    $(document).ready(function () {        displayMessage();    }) } Not to bore you with details but the displayMessage is where I am doing the jQuery, this has worked for ever.Now I'm building this page with the Uploadfile control and this stops working and if I remove the control it works again.I've made sure that the function handler is created for iamloading but it never fires as though something has unregistered the event. Any help or suggestion would be of great healp.Thanks

ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error

RE: ASP:Upload control . Uploading into a SharePoint Document Library Subfolder and FILE NOT FOUND error Two Issues, apparently unrelated. I have subfolders like this /ApplicantDocuments/20 and /ApplicantDocuments/21 (where 20 and 21 are my subfolders and ApplicantDocuments is my library. 1. The below function is erroring with file not found, but I confirmed I'm sending the fully qualify path (i.e c:\test.txt) to System.IO.FileStream content = System.IO.File.Open(documentFileName, System.IO.FileMode.Open); 2. Even if it worked, looking at the code, I'm not using argument foldername.  I'm passing 20 to the argument. How can I make sure it uploads into subfolder 20 of ApplicantDocuments? Thank you.     Just testing in test environment. Will tighten code once it works.   public void UploadDocumentToSite(string foldername, string documentFileName) {      SPSite siteCollection = new SPSite("https://xxxxxx");      SPWeb web = siteCollection.OpenWeb();      //SPSite.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      //Web.AllowUnsafeUpdates = true;      string Lib = "ApplicantDocuments";      SPFolder destFolder = web.GetFolder(Lib);      sendmail(documentFileName+" "+foldername);

Adding a server control on aspx page does not add events in aspx.designer.vb file



I work in VS 2008. Whenver I add a server control(Label) and set it properties in aspx.vb and build the solution, I get the error "Label1 not declared". While analyzing this issue I noticed that the event handler statements for the Label1 where not added in the designer.asp.vb file. These statement would actually be added automatically when I drag and drop a control to my webpage.

I would also like to inform the scenario after which this problem came to me. I was working in VS 2008 , VS 2005 and VS 2003 in the same machine.Could this have caused the issue ? Please advise.

Now each and everytime when I add a control, I am adding the "With Events" code in the designer page to make my build succesfull which makes me to spend more efforts.

Please advise if any settings have to be changed.
