Problem with Ajaxcontrol

I'm trying to create a collapse panel following the tutorial on Asp.net : "http://www.asp.net/learn/ajax-control-toolkit/tutorial-18-vb.aspx"
If I create it on a normal page without a Masterpage it works fine. The moment I use a Masterpage and try to use the collapse panel in a Contentpage I get a script error: 'null' is null or not an object.
I researched the web for about 1 hour to find a solution without success.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks
Thomas

I'm pretty sure your javascript is not navigating down to the content page.  Perhaps something like:

function doOpen() {
            $find("ContentPlaceHolder1").$find("cpe")._doOpen();
        }


I'm seeing discussion of it several places, but not exactly a java-side solution:

Thanks Daniel. I reviewed some of the links you provided and found that the issue is that when a content page is used the names get "ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_" added to the original ID. So that's why it wouldn't find the object.
Well for now I used this for the fix and go tit to work:
<script type="text/javascript">

        function doOpen() {
           $find("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_cpe")._doOpen();
            //$find("cpe")._doOpen();
        }
        function doClose() {
            $find("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_cpe")._doClose();
            //$find("cpe")._doClose();
        }
        function doToggle() {
            var cpe = $find("ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_cpe")
            //var cpe = $find("cpe");
            //cpe._toggle();
            if (cpe.get_Collapsed()) {
                cpe._doOpen();
            } else {
                cpe._doClose();
            }          
        }
     
  </script>

Thanks a lot for your help and advice!!!
