How do I load the Ajax toolkit into my projects?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I've done this before, but it's been a long time and when I tried to do it again (I have just upgraded to VS2010) and it does not have all the Ajax tools available that I was using in 2008. Where are they located and how do I re-install them? I've glanced through the FAQs for ASP.NET Ajax and the Ajax Control Toolkit thread but I did not see anything about how to load the toolkit into your project. Can someone please point me in the right direction or give me a quick refresher on how to do this? I did try to add items by right clicking on it  - only I don't see the items listed in the "Choose items" under either .Net Framework Components or under COM Components or under Silverlight that I am looking for. What happened to Accordian (Collapsable) components? Is there somewhere that I can see a complete list and download componentst that I want to add?

Any help would be greatly apprecaited.

Building a grouping Grid with GridView and ASP.NET AJAX toolkit CollapsiblePanel

I've posted an update to this post to apply on demand loading of Details data using ASP.NET AJAX PageMethods. I'm demonstrating the usage if CollapsiblePanelExtender client events on the new post. Check it out.

I admit, Matt Berseth is really inspiring me! Few days ago I pass through 2 of his great posts:

VWDE 2010 Won't Install Ajax Control Toolkit on XP Pro


To my displeasure I cannot find VWD2005 which at one time would generate a complete web.config for Ajax so I downloaded and installed VWDE 2010 to a clean install of XP Pro.

I've created a new tab on the toolbar for the controls but after I select the Ajax dll to add the controls to the toolbar it grinds away and then goes poof and closes down the task leaving VWD look as if I had never even created the tab in the toolbar. 


Any advice here?

re load javascripts and jquaries after ajax refresh


I use javascript hints for my textbox and when page loads I set that, but after submiting data for example in the case of error in input and need for inputing again the data it doesn't show the hints, which means that when ajax sends Httprequest and gets Httpresponse and refreshes the update panel , that panel doesn't accept loaded jscripts again, so they should be loaded again.

I do not know how to do that in asp.net, any tips or recomendations?

Think that there is actually errors in ajax toolkit for 2.0 framework...hmm


Im using VS2008, asp.net C# 2.0.


Recently i tryed to correct some stuff on my page and i had a friend to take a look at the stuff...


What i did was that i have Examples page with code examples. Then accordion panes for each code piece...And syntaxhighlighter for each code piece. The code that i presented is read from the txt files wich makes it easyer for me to put new examples on the site...

But the problem is now that two of my accordion panes are not working...and everything works in all other browsers this just happens in Internet Explorer. This is kind of weird and my friends explaination was that there is actually errors in the ajax toolkit dll.


Im using the latest version of ajax toolkit for framework 2.0 wich is 1.0.20229.

My friend said its actually amazing that the toolkit has been out there for that long and it has not been tested that well and that there i still errors in it.


You can test this by your self by doing the exact as i explain:


go here: http://www.simpa.dk/Examples.aspx?cookieCheck=true

click Csharp

and try to open the accordion that is from the bottom 2 or 1 they dont collapse...

but this works in all other browsers then Internet Explore

Hi I have been trying to use ajax in my asp .net website developed in 3.5 sp1 2008!

ë in Ajax control toolkit HTMLEditor in Firefox

If i use signs like ÃƒÂ« in the HTML Editor, in IE, its ok, and works.But if i use ë in firefox in the same page with the HTML Editor. If i press safe the ë is converted to: ? (copy past doesnt work well, but its a square if you put [] to each other). But how is this possible? And how can i solve this problem? In IE its working well, but 50% of the users of the system i build are using Firefox. So it should work in all editors......

AJAX call is not working on F5 load balancer web farm setup

I have the following web farm setup in production server.Browser --> HTTPS --> Load Balancer --> HTTP --> webserver nodeF5 Load balancer handles off box SSL termination. It implies that SSL resides on F5 load balancer. Problem Statement: Ajax calls do not go through unless "Access data sources across domains" option is enabled in IE security settings. I have the similar setup in staging server except F5 Load balancer. The ASP.Net application makes perfect AJAX calls on both HTTP and HTTPS.However, the staging server web farm use windows NLB and SSL resides on individual web server nodes

Goodbye Ajax Toolkit, Hello jQuery UI

Like most developers, I love finding tools that do my work for me and make me look good. And, like most developers, I am extremely wary of adding too much outside crap to a project which can make maintaining it a nightmare. You may end up not only maintaining your own code but someone else's code, or worse, not being able to update the project because a third-party control won't let you. The Ajax Toolkit has some great stuff that is very easy to use. It's from Microsoft so you can be pretty comfortable adding it to a project. Drag and Drop and off you go. But often things don't work out exactly as you would like. Deploying and debugging are not always easy. A viable alternative to the Ajax Toolkit is the jQuery UI. I was happy to see on the jQuery web site they have their own UI controls.very happy. If you are already using jQuery, you don't feel as if you are adding a third party component. And, it seems, Microsoft has 'adopted' jQuery. Here's their website: http://jqueryui.com/. It's also reachable from http://jquery.com/ I decided to try out the DatePicker control, since picking a date is one of the most useful and common tasks a control can do. Downloading and installing the jQuery UI was no more difficult than downloading and installing jQuery itself. The download is customizable; you pick which components you want and which visual theme you want. In the do

Error: ASP.NET Ajax client-side framework failed to load.

Getting some errors after implementing the calendar control.  Error: ASP.NET Ajax client-side framework failed to load.  Here are some screenshots of the relevant info:   Here's the scenario...  I compile code locally, view the pages in a browser locally, and it all works fine.  Another developer sits down at my machine, logs in with AD account (which create a local profile for his account on my machine), and gets these errors when viewing my locally compiled code.  He then compiles the same code on my machine again just for a test, but still gets the same errors.  Can anyone come up with any good reasons for this behavior?  I put a call into MS and they suggested creating a new profile for the other developer with the errors since this appeared to be profile specific.  Tried doing that with the same results.  Help!
