I have a page based of the "Scotts to do list" tutorial(using adjax). Within this program I tried to use a trigger to update a update pannel.
<triggers>
            <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger runat="server" EventName="SelectedIndexChanger" ControlID="DropDownList1" />
</asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger>
       
        </triggers>

But visual Web developer 2008 express says "Element triggers is not supported"

I have enabled 3.5 in visual studio.

>>><asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger runat="server" EventName="SelectedIndexChanger" ControlID="DropDownList1" />
</asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger>           <===remove this line. You already have a close tag above it: "/>"

The Framework 3.5 uses the 2.0 CLR, so your settins are correct.
BTW, have your tried my comment?

yes I did try it. It did not work.  I am wondering if there is something to install that I need to use triggers.

<Triggers> needs to be defined within <UpdatePanel> block, not outside it.

Haha I did not even notice I had it outside the update panel.  
Hey keep a watch on my questions. I have been codeing asp.net for 3 weeks(I was a cold fusion developer) So I will be posting some pretty easy questions that I will need quick answers for.

Thanks
