Problem with the textbox

Hi,
with these codes
<%@ Page Title="Test" Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="App7._Default" ValidateRequest="false" %>
<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="cc1" TargetControlID="tb_reg_date" %>
...
                <asp:TextBox ID="tb_reg_date"
                    width="170px"
                    Font-Names="Times New Roman" 
                    Font-Size="11pt" 
                    Font-Bold="true"
                    ForeColor="DarkBlue"
                    runat="server" />
                <cc1:CalendarExtender ID="CalendarExtender1" runat="server" 
                    TargetControlID="DateTextBox" Format="MMMM d, yyyy">

The error means that TargetControlID is not a valid construct for the "Register" directive.

Just remove the following "TargetControlID="tb_reg_date"" from line 2  and if your Ajax library is installed correctly, the page error will be gone.
