I have downloaded the latest release of the Ajax Control toolkit from
Codeplex and have extracted the AjaxControlBinariesToolkit file. I am
following the instruction per
http://www.asp.net/learn/Ajax-Contro...ial-47-cs.aspx. I amn
stuck at the choose items step and need help. When I go to add the
AjaxcontrolToolkit.dll file it does not work. Will appreciate any suggestions.

What is the error you are recieving? That might help someone lead you to
answer.

NOTE that you can add the controls to a page without adding to the
toolbox. It is more of a pain, as you have to properly reference the
assembly manually (either in page or web.config) and add the tags a bit
blindly (no drag and drop from toolbox).

Peace and Grace,

Gregory,

When I go to choose items after adding the tab for Ajax Control Toolkit, my
solution project disappears and I hbave to start all over again. You
mentioned in your thread about how to add the controls manually. Would that
be my only option and what is the process.

Thanks

Hello Alex,

Which version of AjaxControlToolkit you used?
If you used the lastest version 3.0.0512, you have to update your VS to
VS2008 sp1.

Then you can add the reference in your project.

Possibly, but let's look at the easy route first.

1. What version of the AJAX libs are you using?
2. What version of Visual Studio are you using?

For the latest AJAX toolkit, you should be running Visual Studio 2008
SP1. I am not sure this is the only way for compatibility, but it is the
suggested route. If you have not installed SP1 yet, this might solve the
issues.

As for the manual editing, it is a matter of adding reference, very
similar to a user control. You then have to manually type in the
control. Not impossible, but certainly more painful than drag and drop.

Peace and Grace,

Gregory,

I am using SP! for VS2008 because I am able to see the templates for
Silverlight and Entity Frameworks when I attempt to create a new soltion
project. I have added the AjaxControlToolkit.dll file from the the bin folder
of the samplewebsite solution file from the extract of the zipped file. I am
using the latest version of the toolkit download from codeplex. Since I
cannot use the choos items route, I have opted to go the manual way. To me,
this means when I open the default.aspx file, I should be able to add for
insatnce the accordion control from the starting tag using intellisense, but
this is not happening. Will appreciate any suggestiions

Alex

Hello Alex,

Did you use "add reference" to add the ajaxcontroltoolkit dll? If not,
please use that to reference dll rather than put the dll file into bin
folder directly.
Then the lastest version of ajaxcontroltoolkit is 3.0.0512, it is based on
VS2008 sp1(it's matched I think)
So I think the problem is the approach you reference the dll.

AjaxControlToolkit is following Microsoft Public License (Ms-PL), which is
out of the support boundaries of our managed newsgroups. Please post it to
http://forums.asp.net/1022.aspx if you'd like. It is not managed, but this
forum will provide support for AjaxControlToolkit professionally.

Vince,


Thanks for the reply. How do I vewrify that I have SP1 installed for my
VS2008. I know I had it installed last year. To be sure from which folder do
I do the add reference step from.

Hello Alex,

You can click Help in menu of VS2008, and choose About Microsoft Visual
Studio. What's on the right side of the window? Can you see
"Microsoft .NET Framework
Version 3.5 SP1"?
