I am having a problem with javascript, an UpdatePanel, and a textbox.   Basically, everything is working fine except that when the event from the textbox gets triggered, it does a full page reload instead of an ajax style update.  The code is below.  I can't seem to find the bug, hopefully someone here can.  this is the code which creates the update panel, the textbox and the events.  All i want this to do is every time someone something in the textbox, it refreshes the date.
TextBox box = new TextBox();
            box.ID = "box";
            box.TextChanged += new EventHandler(this.box_TextChanged);
            box.Attributes.Add("onKeyUp", "javascript:__doPostBack('box','')");
            
            AsyncPostBackTrigger boxtrigger = new AsyncPostBackTrigger();
            boxtrigger.ControlID = "box";
            boxtrigger.EventName = "TextChanged";
 
            UpdatePanel panel = new UpdatePanel();
            panel.ID = "UpdatePanel1";
            panel.ChildrenAsTriggers = true;
            panel.UpdateMode = UpdatePanelUpdateMode.Conditional;
            panel.Triggers.Add(boxtrigger);
            panel.ContentTemplateContainer.Controls.Add(box);
            panel.ContentTemplateContainer.Controls.Add(new LiteralControl(DateTime.Now.ToString()));

Is this residing inside a user control. One thing you wan to check is that ClientID and ID of box are same. If they are not, then you have to ensure that you pass the ClientId for the below assignment

box.Attributes.Add("onKeyUp", "javascript:__doPostBack('box','')");

you can change it to

box.Attributes.Add("onKeyUp", "javascript:__doPostBack('" + box.ClientID +"','')");
