Outline doesn't appear around the Validator Callout Extender's callout

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

For some reaon the black outline isn't appearing around my Validator Callout Extender's callout box.  I don't have a css class set.  It should display a yellow callout with a black outline.  Like on the sample page: http://www.asp.net/ajax/ajaxcontroltoolkit/samples/ValidatorCallout/ValidatorCallout.aspx .

 It shows the yellow call out with the black outline around the pointed part but not the main box.  Any idea's on why this is happening?

MaskedEdit Extender & Validator - Save Mask only if Value Present


I want to save the input mask used in the control, but ONLY if a valid value was entered. In this markup, the mask is properly displayed and stored even if the user doesn't enter anything. Since a zero-length string is a valid value, the entered value is being stored in the database as (___) ___-____ If there is no value entered, the value stored should be a zero length string.

         <asp:TextBox runat="server" style="font-family:Tahoma;font-size:8pt;width:95px" ID="TextBoxPhoneMobileTemporary" Text='<%#Bind("PhoneMobileTemporary")%>' />
         <ajax:MaskedEditExtender runat="server" ID="MEE4" TargetControlID="TextBoxPhoneMobileTemporary" Mask="(999) 999-9999" ClearMaskOnLostFocus="false" />
         <ajax:MaskedEditValidator runat="server" ID="MEV4" ControlExtender="MEE4" ControlToValidate="TextBoxPhoneMobileTemporary" IsValidEmpty="true" />



AJAX Validation callout extenders firing when other buttons are pressed


I have several buttons on a page, but have assigned some validators and AJAX validator callout extenders to one button in particular. However, the validator callout extenders seem to be firing even if I press a different button. I thought this was the point of setting a TargetControlID (for the valiator callout extender) and a ControlToValidate for the validator itself! Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?

<asp:TextBox ID="tbNewDuration" runat="server" />   Duration <br />
<asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="tbNewDurationRFV" ControlToValidate="tbNewDuration" ErrorMessage="Please enter a Duration value." Display="None" runat="server" />
<cc1:ValidatorCalloutExtender ID="tbNewDurationVCE1" runat="server"  TargetControlID="tbNewDurationRFV" />
<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="tbNewDurationREV" runat="server" Display="none" ControlToValidate="tbNewDuration" ErrorMessage="Please enter a number of 10 digits" ValidationExpression="^\d{10}$" />
<cc1:ValidatorCalloutExtender ID="tbNewDurationVCE2" runat="server" TargetControlID="tbNewDurationREV" />

sys.extended.UI.PositioningMode.Absolute is null or not an object ,callout ajax control

Any ideas??

no intellisense, smart tag, extender wizard etc


Development Environment:  VS 2008 Pro, IIS 6, asp.net 2.x, sql 2005 server

Installed the version of AJAX Toolkit and Library for the .net 2.0 compatibility (as IIS is still using 2.x)

The problem is as that within the vs 2008 pro, when I select for example a button control...there should be an additional pop-up intellisense indicating...add extender.

to compound this, within the extender control ... the TargetControlID -- should be a drop-down list, indicating which controls are compatible with the extender ... there is no drop-down list.

even if I manually type the control to associate the extender with, this has no effect on the control (such as textbox control) -- as there should be another option appear indicating the association has taken place).

 below is the steps to take (as written by MS) -- but this is what I am not getting:

"If the Button Tasks shortcut menu does not appear, right-click the Button control and then click Show Smart Tag."  -- the smart tag is not appearing

Animation Extender ( LinkButton Disbale )


My flyout animation starts on a click of linkbutton, everything works fine on IE, as I click the linkbutton flyout animation is triggered and linkbutton gets disbaled during the animation. But on Firefox and Chorme linkbutton doesn't get disbaled , due which if I again and again click on the linkbutton the flyout animation keeps moving towards left side on every click.

In firefox and chorme linkbutton always remains enabled.

 <cc1:AnimationExtender ID="AnimationExtender1" TargetControlID="lnkBtnAbt" runat="server">
                        <EnableAction Enabled="false" />
                        <StyleAction AnimationTarget="moveMe" Attribute="display" Value="block"/>
                        <Parallel AnimationTarget="moveMe" Duration=".5" Fps="30">
                            <Move Horizontal="-350" Vertical="50"></Move>

Beginner: this doesn't make sense to me


Do you need and "empty" script tag in the head to run scripts that are in the body?  Also, can you run JQuery scripts if they're in the <head> tag?  The first sample only works if the JQuery script is in the form (and body) tag, not in the head - even if I add $(document).ready(function() { });

This works

<head runat="server">
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js" />
<script type="text/javascript">
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<a href="">Here is a link</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
$('a').click(function () {
alert("you clicked me!");


This doesn't work.  Notice I removed the second <script> tag from the head

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="serve

Validator code keeling over


I'm posting in this forum, as it seems the best place for looking at some horrible Javascript!  In essence, I'm trying to hook into a RangeValidator on the client side - nothing special, just asking it to revalidate.  So, I have this in my VB:

 objDescriptor.AddProperty("DateRangeValidator", rvDateInput.ClientID)

and this in my JS: 

// First the constructor
this._DateRangeValidator = null; 

// Then the prototype
get_DateRangeValidator: function () {
        return this._DateRangeValidator;

    set_DateRangeValidator: function (value) {
        this._DateRangeValidator = value;


That's no different from many of the other references I am passing around, and which all work.  So, I'd expect this:


to "just work" and re-evaluate the validity - I think!  What I am actually seeing is:

function ValidatorUpdateDisplay(val) {
    if (typeof(v

If you develop software for a large company, you've undoubtedly experienced the joys of dealing with "Legal. " The meetings, the endless explanations, the long waits. I'm here to report from the other side.

Calender Extender


Dear All,


I have a calenderextender in a form with the following properties. 

<ajaxToolkit:CalendarExtender ID="CalendarExtender1" runat="server" TargetControlID = "txtDeadLine" Format="dd/MM/yyyy" PopupButtonID="btnDate">

So the date selected by the CalenderExtender, the value gets displayed in the txtDeadLine.Text. The problem is when i save the data, the date displayed in the txtDeadLine.text becomes empty and the date is not saved.

How do i save the date using CalenderExtender. I can save the date using the normal Calender.


Help wud be appreciated
