Sys.Extended.UI.PositioningMode Error

Posted on 2009-12-28

I am trying to use the Ajax control ComboBox. which allows you to select an item from a list of items previously loaded or enter a new item to be added to the list. This control is part of the most updated AJAX Control Toolkit 3.5.
To test the control I added some items to the collection, although my intention is to load the dropdown list with items from a database.
The control shows the items when I click on the arrow, but it doesnt let me type any text in the textbox side of it.
I am using the Toolkit ScriptManager as oppose to the regular ScriptManager that comes under the AJAX Extensions Tab. The reason for that is that the page will render with errors if I dont use the right version of the ToolkitScriptManager (Version 4.0).

Can anybody advise me on this?

Thank you very much,

    Do you get any javascript errors?

    Can you show your code?

    Hi CtrlAltDI,
    Thanks for your answer. Never mind. It was my fault. In order to be able to type text I needed the dropdown style property to be set to Dropdown and not to Dropdownlist like it was.
