Hello,

I am trying to use AJAX with my cSharp lab. I have downloaded all the AJAX stuff necessary and have created an AJAX enabled website. Right now I am trying to get the calendar to work and I am receiving the following error:

The TargetControlID of 'CalendarExtender1' is not valid. The value cannot be null or empty.

I will be asking a whole lot of questions for a while this is like question 1 out of 100.

Here is my code below.
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="AddUser.aspx.cs" Inherits="AddUser" %>
 
<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="Ajax" %>
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
 
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
</head>
<body>
    <h1>Sign up to NAITBook</h1>
    <form id="Form1" method="post" runat="server">
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
        </asp:ScriptManager>
        <table>
            <tr><td>First Name:</td>
                <td><asp:TextBox Runat="server" ID="txtUsername" /></td></tr>
            <tr><td>Last Name:</td>
                <td><asp:TextBox Runat="server" ID="TextBox1" /></td></tr>   
            <tr><td>Gender:</td>    
                <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlGender" runat="server">
                </asp:DropDownList></tr>  
            <tr><td>Date of Birth:</td>   
                <Ajax:CalendarExtender ID="CalendarExtender1" runat="server">
                    </Ajax:CalendarExtender>
                </tr>
            <tr><td>Password:</td>
                <td><asp:TextBox Runat="server" ID="txtPassword" TextMode="Password"  /></td></tr>
            <tr><td><asp:Button ID="btnSumbit" runat="server" Text="Sumbit" /></td></tr>
        </table>
    </form>
    <div style='color:red'>
        <asp:Literal Runat="server" ID="lblMessage" />
    </div>
</body>
</html>

The Calender extender needs a textbox to hold the date value, so you need to add a date textbox.  Lets call it "DOBTextbox" and then you need to add "TargetControlID = 'DOBTextbox'  ".  Once you do that, your textbox will now be associated with the Calender extender.  

Don't forget your script manager at the top of the page.

If needed, you could actually change some of the controls JavaScript but I have not had the pleasure of doing that.

hmm its a little more complicated than I thought.

Never mind that. Would you know how to take the date of birth selected from the calender then change that to their age and put the integer value in the textbox?

Look at tip #6, you will have to override the calculation using JavaScript
