Hi

I am using an Update Panel but when I click the button within the  panel. It renders the controls (1 textbox and a dropd down) twice. Code is below.

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong....

Thansk
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel2" runat="server">
			
			<ContentTemplate>
					<asp:Button ID="cmdUseThis" runat="server" Text="Use This" onclick="cmdUseThis_Click" />
 
				</td>
			</tr>
 
			<tr>
			
				<td class="rowLabel">
					&nbsp;State:</td>
				<td>
					&nbsp;
					<asp:TextBox ID="txtState" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
				</td>
			</tr>
			<tr>
				<td class="rowLabel" valign="top">
					Country:</td>
				<td>
					&nbsp;
					<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlCountry" runat="server" AppendDataBoundItems="true">
					<asp:ListItem></asp:ListItem>
					</asp:DropDownList>	
					
					<asp:UpdateProgress ID="UpdateProgress1" runat="server">
				<ProgressTemplate>
				<img alt="working..." src="../images/spinner.gif" />
				</ProgressTemplate>
				</asp:UpdateProgress>
				</td></tr></table>
			</ContentTemplate>
 
			</asp:UpdatePanel>

What do you mean by render it tiwce, you see 4 thing after the click, or you see the dropdown with duplicated data? Can you show us how your button click is defined  in code behind?

            If Not ddlCountry Is Nothing Then
                  ddlCountry.Items.Clear()
                  PopulateDropDowns()
            End If
            Dim objCountryID As Object = DataAccess.getScalarResult("SELECT City_Country_ID FROM tblCity WHERE City_ID = " & listLocInfo.SelectedValue)
            Dim objStateID As Object = DataAccess.getScalarResult("SELECT City_State_ID FROM tblCity WHERE City_ID = " & listLocInfo.SelectedValue)
      
            If Not IsDBNull(objStateID) Then
                  txtState.Text = DataAccess.getScalarResult("SELECT State_Name FROM tblState WHERE State_ID = " & objStateID)
            End If
            
            ddlCountry.Items.FindByValue(objCountryID).Selected = True

Is this update panel part within an WebUserControl, if so, you might wanna check if you have added the entire thing twice (on PageLoad, PreReder ... once and another place two).

If not,
 PopulateDropDowns() ??? what does this function do??? <- the way I look at the name, I guess it add another dropdown to the container control.

Right click on the output browser and see if you see 4 different stuffs there, and try to run it in IE and Firefox to see if both browser acts the same way (I guess they do).

Hope this helps

PopulateDropDowns gets populate the drop down with values from a database - in this case the countries

Ok here might be the problem, all what I can guess is the UpdatePanel screw up your page as you interpret them in between your table html tag. Which not wise able.

You might try to redecorate them abit by put the entire table content inside that updatePanel instead of open somewhere, start with a <td> and end table before closing the updatePanel

Can you give another try?
