No combobox ajax control visible in Visual Studio 2008 web project

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Greetings -

New user to Visual Studio 2008 - one of the reasons for upgrading from 2005 was because I wanted to use the AJAX Toolbox Control for combobox in my web forms. 

Have started a new project, have told it to use .net 3.5 for the project, but when I go to the ajax tooklkit in the toolbox panel there is no combobox.  Could someone please tell me why it isn't there?

Environment - Visual Studio 2008 SP1

Many thanks - OfficeWonk

Visual Studio 2008 Asp.net Development Server Launches When use local IIS is project option

I have a visual studio 2008 asp.net MVC webapp project.  The project is set to use local IIS WebServer. When I run without debugging, it runs just fine.  However when i run with debugging Visual studio launches the Asp.net Development Server on top of IIS.  I would not care if it wasnt for the fact that any time i make a web request to the MVC Site it seems to be creating duplicate requests resulting in a very painful debugging experience.Thanks,Giovanni

AJAX Control Toolkit in Visual Studio

Hello everybody.I want to include AJAX Control Toolkit in my project currently designing of Visual Studio 2008. I found a link Installing AJAX Control Toolkit in Visual Studio 2008 . It is helpful. I want to know anything else shall I have to do for enabling AJAX Control. Is there anything should I write in web.config file or in that .aspx file?

Or the reference files will going to be saved in bin folder?Any information will be very helpful to me.Also there is a paragraph in last section of the instruction, here it is :Now we are able to add any of these controls to our web applications.

Help deploying Windows Service to 64bit Server usinf Visual Studio 2008 Setup Project?

I have a Windows Service I created a while back for our Win2003/2008 32bit Servers, written in Visual Studio 2008, deployed via a VS2k8 Setup Project.  Everything works great, installs fine, and runs as it should.  There is no platform dependent code, it's all straight-up .Net Framework stuff, so we thought it should deploy to a Win2008 64bit Server just fine.  But this seems not to be the case.

When I try to install the Service as is on the 64bit machine, the service and associated DLL's are installed to the "C:\Windows\SysWOW64" folder, but when you right click the Service itself and look at the properties, it is trying to find the .exe file in the "C:\Windows\System32" folder. This difference prevents the service from running, obviously.

If I change the Setup Project settings, set the Target Platform to "x64" and change in the File System screen to use the "System (64-bit) Folder" placing the files in there and re-run the setup.exe on the server.... now the files are correctly installed to the "C:\Windows\System32" folder, but the Service itself is not 'installed', that is it *does not* show up in the Services Manager.

Just for the giggles of it I tried to manually install the service using 'installutil.exe' in the .Net Fra

Visual Studio 2008 fails to debug an ASP.NET project... Sometimes


I have a very simple ASP.NET 3.5 project. When I start debugging the project, IE sometimes (about 50% of the time) starts, but never connects to the site. I need to exit IE and restart (which does not always work).

I am developing on Windows 7 and using IIS with a virtual folder as the server for my project. I am running Visual Studio 2008 SP1.

Any ideas?

Ajax Control Toolkit for Framework 2.0 in Visual Studio 2010


I am new to ASP.NET and am using VS 2010 on a standalone machine to develop a web application in framework 2.0. The 3.5 Ajax Control Toolkit I have in my Toolbox tab is greyed out for my 2.0 app, but not for a test 3.5 app, so I am assuming I need to download Tookit just for 2.0 and for VS 2010. I am not sure where to find the right Toolkit. Everything I have found is for 3.5 or 4.0 and/or not for VS 2010. Thanks!

crystal report -visual studio 2008 dual axis chart (bar & line)


dear all, 

i use crystal report integrated with  vs.2008, and i want to make chart with dual axis (bar & line).

i have used bar chart and input the data with 2 values..

then in chart options > template, i activated the dual axis..

my question is, how i can change the 2nd value with line chart not bar chart??

i'd tried to find the right settings in "chart options" but still can't find the solution.

for information in "chart options" there are 4 sub menu : template, general,titles,grid..

i read in a tutorial there's more sub menu called "series" in crystal report (stand alone version)..

is it possible doing it in Crystal Report VS. 2008?

please,, i need your advice and solution..

Thanx before..
