I jsut installed AjaxToolKit.

I applied the the control to a textbox but when I run the page the watermark does not show.

What am I doing wrong?  Thanks.


<form id="form1" runat="server">
    <asp:scriptmanager ID="Scriptmanager1" runat="server"></asp:scriptmanager>

                        <asp:TextBoxWatermarkExtender ID="tweSpouseAddr" WatermarkText="Address" runat="server" TargetControlID="spouseAddr" WatermarkCssClass="watermarked">
                        </asp:TextBoxWatermarkExtender>
                    <asp:TextBox ID="spouseAddr" runat="server" Width="491px"></asp:TextBox>

</form>

two things,
First try writing the asp:TextBoxWatermarkExtender  after the actual textbox.
second make sure the css gets applied to the extender

I figured out the problem.

 I had the AJAX Extension ScriptManager tag in the code instead of the Ajax Toolkit ToolScriptManager.

This
    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
    </asp:ScriptManager>

instead of this

    <asp:ToolkitScriptManager ID="ToolkitScriptManager1" runat="server">
    </asp:ToolkitScriptManager>

I still have no idea of why the first one did not work.
