Why won't jquery-ui library load into my web page?

Posted on 2014-07-27

I have an application.
The application uses the standard template out of the box (with master page & content).

The application uses the AjaxControlToolkit TabContainer control.
I also make use of the jquery.js and jquery-ui libraries.

I'm running into some weird issues with the combination of the AjaxControlToolkit, jquery and jquery-ui.
It all seems to be related to where the libraries get included in the aspx pages.

1) If I load the jquery and jquery-ui libraries in the default page's <asp:Content>, then the jquery-ui library
    does not load. I look in developer tools (Chrome) and there are no errors. I look at the scripts that get loaded,
    and jquery-ui does not get loaded.

Consider the following:
<asp:Content ID="BodyContent" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/jquery-2.1.1.min.js" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/jquery-ui.min.js" />

Open in new window

2) To try to fix this, I tried moving around where I actually load the libraries. If I load the jquery library on the master page and load the jquery-ui on my default page, then it seems that jquery-ui gets loaded. However
the jquery library seems to somehow clash with the TabContainer
<--- This is from Site.Master.aspx -->
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <link href="~/Styles/Site.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
     <script type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/jquery-2.1.1.min.js" />
    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="HeadContent" runat="server">

<--- This is from default.aspx -->
<asp:Content ID="BodyContent" runat="server" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent">
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/jquery-ui.min.js" />

Open in new window

When I do the above, the
TabContainer functions correctly, but I lose all my styles

So my question is "How/Where do I include jquery and jquery-ui so they get loaded correctly
with my web page with colliding with the AjaxControlToolkit  TabContainer?

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/jquery-2.1.1.min.js" ></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/jquery-ui.min.js" ></script>

Open in new window

instead of this:
 <script type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/jquery-2.1.1.min.js" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/Scripts/jquery-ui.min.js" />

Open in new window
