I recently went through the online videa at MS to create a slide show page using the slideshow extender.  The page loads, and at first, appears to work normally, but the images dont change.

My code for the page and the SlideService is below.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

The only obvious thing I can spot is that You're returning an Array with an upper bound of six (index based = 5) but only specifying the first five array fields (0->4). Maybe that breaks the extender? Try specifying at is MySlides(4) and see if it makes a difference.

Here is something new.
If I put a break in the SlideService.vb file, at the Public Function GetSlides() line, it will go to that function, get into the function, but at the second line which is

mySlides(0) = New AjaxControlToolkit.Slide("~/pics/DSC_1782.jpg", "pic1", "First Lacrosse Picture")


It pops a box that says "Thre is no source code available for the current location."  What is that?

Hi again,

Maybe You should not supply the dynamic path, try removing "~/" from the path. Sorry for being inaccurate but I'm actually on holiday over the easter and doesn't have access to my dev box. Also, since the error message reg. the source code most likely is related to the control toolkit, have You tried adding a reference to the Ajax ControlToolkit dll to the project containing the service (if not the same project as for the slideshow)?

carinorrbom,
I have tried your suggestion, but still no luck.  It is like the extender just doesnt work at all.  The first image, as supplied in the aspx file, does show up, but none of the buttons work, except that when I  hit the stop/play button, the text changes.  Thats it.

Very confusing.

Hi again!

Three things:

1. The "There is no source ... " error is, as far as I can understand, a debugging "bug" in VS. It can't find the debugging symbols for the toolkit but the code actually works anyway.

2. I replicated Your code when I got access to my dev box and hey, guess what, didn't work. I changed two things compared to Your code:

2.1: In Your markup You had an error in the style attribute for the image, it hade broken out on two separate rows:

                   style="border:1px solid black;
                   width:auto"

Change it to one row:

                   style="border:1px solid black;width:auto;"

2.2: In the service code, change the image paths from "~/pics/.." to "pics/..". Other than that I imported the Toolkit namespace to clean things up a bit. I have attached the service code as well for Your reference.

With these changes, it builds and runs just fine on my dev box, hope it will on Yours too!
