AJAX :: Control Toolkit 40412 / Trying To Use The Calendar Control In A Local Internet Enviroment?
Aug 9, 2010
"..AjaxControlToolkit_9c860ac12ae9SampleWebSitesAjaxClientWebSiteScripts",so I write the following code
Looks like there aren't a lot of users using the Ajax Control Toolkit 40412 and the Microsoft Microsoft Ajax CDN because I can't find any information on how to get the MicrosoftAjax.js and MicrosoftAjaxWebForms.js files to be linked to the CDN.
First issue:Ajax Control Toolkit 40412 seems to be using its own customized version of MicrosoftAjax.js and MicrosoftAjaxWebForms.js. Toolkit's version
is 4.1.40412.2, while the version that come with ASP.NET Ajax 4 is 4.0.30205.0. By default when using the toolkit the version is swapped to the toolkit's version. While the ASP.NET Ajax 4 version is hosted on the CDN (http://www.asp.net/ajaxlibrary/CDNAjax4.ashx) the version with the Toolkit is not (http://www.asp.net/ajaxlibrary/CDNACT40412.ashx), which doesn't make any sense because all the other files are hosted. Therefore, a CDN version of MicrosoftAjax.js and MicrosoftAjaxWebForms.js is UNAVAILABLE when using the Ajax Control Toolkit 40412.
Second Issue:Why not use the ASP.NET Ajax 4 version of the the MicrosoftAjax.js, after all its version 4. The version can be swapped out by adding a Script Resource Mapping to the Application_Start event in the Global.asax.cs.
However, when the version is changed to the ASP.NET Ajax 4 version the following error is given:
"AjaxControlToolkit requires ASP.NET Ajax 4.0 scripts. Ensure the correct version of the scripts are referenced. If you are using an ASP.NET ScriptManager, switch to the ToolkitScriptManager in AjaxControlToolkit.dll."
It doesn't matter if you are using the ToolkitScriptManager or ScriptManager you will always get this error when not using the version of MicrosoftAjax.js that comes with the AjaxControlToolkit.So how can one use the Microsoft Ajax CDN for the MicrosoftAjax.js and MicrosoftAjaxWebForms.js with ASP.NET Ajax 4 & Ajax Control Toolkit 40412?
One other note. The new attribute EnableCdn="true" is of course rendered completely useless when using the Ajax Control Toolkit because the idea is that the MicrosoftAjax.js and MicrosoftAjaxWebForms.js files would then be linked by references to the CDN. This does not happen with the Toolkit because as described the Toolkit replaces the those files with its own. I was very surprised to find out that all my excitement about having CDN support was made void when I included the Toolkit in my project.
Im having problem with the newest release of Ajax Control Toolkit under .NET 3.5
I downloaded source code from AjaxControlToolkit.Source.zip and compiled it under .NET 3.5
Then i made simple web application:
It failed to run with my compiled version of ACT, im having an error:"Line: 160 Error: '$common' is null or not an object"
in AsyncFileUpload.AsyncFileUpload.debug.js and then:
"Line: 22 Error: AjaxControlToolkit requires ASP.NET Ajax 4.0 scripts. Ensure the correct version of the scripts are referenced. If you are using an ASP.NET ScriptManager, switch to the ToolkitScriptManager in AjaxControlToolkit.dll." in
AsyncFileUpload.AsyncFileUpload.debug.js" in Common.Common.debug.js
I tried to use precompiled binaries of ACT : AjaxControlToolkit.Binary.NET35.zip and its working!
There is difference in referenced scripts between my dll and AjaxControlToolkit.Binary.NET35.zip
In my version, the headers of MicrosoftAjax.debug.js and MicrosoftAjaxWebForms.debug.js are:
// Name: MicrosoftAjax.debug.js // Assembly: System.Web.Extensions // Version: 188.8.131.52 // FileVersion: 3.5.30729.4926 //----------------------------------------------------------------------- // Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. //----------------------------------------------------------------------- // MicrosoftAjax.js // Microsoft AJAX Framework.
// Name: MicrosoftAjaxWebForms.debug.js // Assembly: System.Web.Extensions // Version: 184.108.40.206 // FileVersion: 3.5.30729.4926 //----------------------------------------------------------------------- // Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. //----------------------------------------------------------------------- // MicrosoftAjaxWebForms.js // Microsoft AJAX ASP.NET WebForms Framework.
And when im using version from AjaxControlToolkit.Binary.NET35.zip, they are:
I have not compared the rest of scripts, but in those 2 scripts: assembly, version and author does not match between my and precompiled dll. ToolkitScriptManager is trying to load microsoft scripts, but it should load those from CodePlex.In solution downloaded from AjaxControlToolkit.Source.zip, there are 2 projects: MicrosoftAjax and MicrosoftAjax.Extened, i think ToolkitScriptManager should take scripts from them. Maybe im compiling it in a wrong way? (I changed target framework in AjaxControlToolkit project to .NET 3.5 and also tried to change it in 2 projects mentioned above, with no effect).
I have problems with optimizing AJAX Control Toolkit. The specific problem is that 4800 records take about 30 seconds to bind in Internet Explorer (only 2 seconds in Opera & Firefox). I've tried anything, but I still can't improve the load time in IE.I've already enabled compression and caching, I'm using ToolkitScriptManager instead of ScriptManager. I've tried setting LoadScriptsBeforeUI and EnablePartialRendering to false, but it still doesn't help.
This is not a big issue since it's quite easy to bypass by making a new project and copying everything on it, but it bothers me quite a bit that I can't figure out what it is about. In short my calendar and calendar extenders stop working suddenly. The last time this happened I made some changes to the pages code behind, then hit undo gazillion times to go back to the last save. After that I hit debug and lo and behold: calendar did not respond to any clicks and any text field with calendar extender did not show calendar on clicking them.
This happens in both IE8 and FireFox 3.6 and no amount or restart, rebuild and other such tricks do nothing. The only thing that I can figure out to solve the problem is either use a backup copy of a version that works or make a new project and then copy all the files from the not working into the new/earlier version and all works again. I was able to track down that this seems to relate somehow to AJAX as when I ran the debug I mention above, I got error messages on the web page saying something about AJAX. This however happened only once and I cant get it to happen again (and thus can not remember much about what it said).
Also when I debugged the event handling the calendar click, I get an error message like this: There is no source code available for the current location Then it opens a file search window trying to find some cs file inside the ajax control toolkit. However this only happened the first time I tried debugging the event and I can't remember more details about it. Now I just get that error message when debug exits the event.
So end analysis on my part: The ajax control tool kit gets knotted up all of a sudden for some mysterious reason and is tied to that particular project. Can anyone tell me what this could be about?
I have a text box which has a Ajax calendar extender attached. You click on the text box, the calendar pops up, you select a date and that gets displayed in the text box. That all good but the date is displayed in mm/dd/yyyy format. Can this be changed?
I am Getting the following error using the Numeric UpDown Control from Ajax Control Toolkit. Assembly 'AjaxControlToolkit, Version=3.0.30512.20315, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=28f01b0e84b6d53e' contains a Web resource with name 'AjaxControlToolkit.NumericUpDown.NumericUpDownBehavior.debug.js', but does not contain an embedded resource with name 'AjaxControlToolkit.NumericUpDown.NumericUpDownBehavior.debug.js'.
The Ajax control toolkit tab panel automatically inserts a space by all four corners of the body. For example, go to http://www.asp.net/ajax/ajaxcontroltoolkit/Samples/Tabs/Tabs.aspx and look at the TabPanel on the page. The is a space before "Signature:" and "Bio:" labels. How can I set the space-width to 0px; in the tabPanel body?
When I click the button to open the modal popup it shows the popup but then continues and forces a postback causing the page to reload and the modal popup to be hidden again.Here is the markup for the control:
Adding an Accordion only creates the outer most tags. I then have to add the headercssclass, contentcssclass etc. info. Then i have to manually add <Pane> tags, and then add Accordion Pane controls. Using VWDE 2008, is there a way to customize the control so that adding the Accordion control automatically adds this other info? Ideally with 2 Accordion Panes to start, but even just getting the various Accordion properties and the <Pane> tags added would make it much more <Pane>less!
MSDN documentation says that the ScriptManager class is part of the System.Web.UI namespace and I see that I can create a ScriptManager object programmatically. However, I don't see the ScriptManager control on the front-end. Do I need to reference the Ajax Control Toolkit dll in order to have access to control?
Currently, I am using Calendar control on ASPX page. Instead, I want to use AJAX Calendar Extender control because of the animation effect and the way it moves between years making if much more impressive than Calendar control.Is it possible to display Calendar extender on page permanently, just like Calendar control?
