I have a page asc.aspx this page has two placeholders (frmasc_search & frmasc_results) the first is visible on page load  and the other is not. When I press a button I want the first form to change to invisible and the second to be visible. However when I do this I am getting an error for Invalid Post Back. What do I need to do. I have included the full text of the error and the script I am running below.
