I have a web application that I built in VS 2005 and then converted to VS2010. Is is not AJAX enabled but I would like to AJAX enable it. Every reference I can find shows menues or options that do not show in my VS 2010 Professional installation. I would appreciate a reference or a set of steps that will guide me through AJAX enabling this web application.

You need this: http://www.asp.net/ajaxlibrary/act.ashx

Then add the Ajax controls to your toolbox in their own tab.

How does this enable the old web application? I already have AJAX extensions in my tool box and can use them for new projects. It's just this application that gives me the sys.webforms.PageRequestManager errors. None of the references I have found, either here or on the web, seem to work for VS 2010 (or, as is often the case, I am just too dense to recognize how they work).

I totally misunderstood your question. Do you have this in the pages you are using Ajax?

<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="asp" %>

Open in new window

rawinnlnx9,

Thanks for your response. I don't have that line in the pages in either the new projects or this one. But you did give me a great hint. The update panel is not in the AjacControlToolkit so I don't need that statement. However, I did need to change the target of the web app from .Net 2.0 to .Net 3.5. Once that was done, the update panel worked properly. Thanks for your help.

It prompted me to look in the right direction. Without a doubt, if I had floundered, jawinnlnx9 would have guided me to the correct solution. Thanks for all the help.
