Ajax updatepanel doing full postback of page

recently I was working on a project. Built with Ajax and .Net 3.5. Well come to find out that networksolutions doesn't support .net 3.5 only .net 2.0. So I had to get the older version of the ajaxcontroltoolkit.dll (Version 1.0.20229).

Well ever since then, when i use the updatepanel in my code, it refreshes the whole page.

So I went in and created a simple page with 2 clocks. One inside the updatepanel and one outside the update panel with a  button. Everything I click the button, the whole page is updating both times.

Anyone seen this before?

if you dont specify UpdateMode="Conditional" then then the panels will always update with any update.
try adding
UpdateMode="Conditional" ChildrenAsTrigger="true"

or you can use UpdateMode="Conditional"
and assign the buttons as asyncpostbacktriggers

Dude @##$%

I have no idea what the probelm is. I have tried both of your recommendations. Neither worked.

SO I started from scratch.

I downloaded the ajaxtoolkit for .net 2.0 and .net 3.5

Using the code below, I created a web site.

On the ajax toolkit version 2.0, the whole page is getting updated.

Version 3.5, it works right.

I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

apart from all suggested solution like button must be inside update panel and <asynchronousTrigger>

you must ensure proper .net assembly references are referenced into web.config .



- can see iven if u started from scratch its not working so i suspect more about web.config...


also,your target label also must be inside your updatepanel.
