I'm using an UpdatePanel to create a news headline rotator that will read headline, brief description etc from a db into an ajax enabled rotator to cycle through 3 or 4 news headlines/topics that may interest our users without refreshing the entire page. I'll cache the data to be limit the database hits.
I'm using a FormView to bind the headline data as shown below. I wanted to use the UpdatePanelAnimationExtender to fade in/out as it cycles through the headlines. When the page initially loads, the headline text etc looks fine, however as it's redrawn, the news font styles don't seem to be what they should (fonts seems thinner or not fully rendered and don't appear to be the font style I specified).
I took out the UpdatePanelAnimationExtender and it cycles through and redraws fine but I lose the fading in/out transition between showing headlines.
So it appears to be a problem with the UpdatePanelAnimationExtender itself or I'm not specified it's settings correctly. Just wondering if anyone has seen this behavior.
