Hi:

I've got an ASP.Net webpage which uses the AjaxToolkit NumericUpDownExtender.

I've been testing/debugging using Chrome and IE 11.
In IE11, I am getting some errors on the generated HTML on the page. Everything looks OK in Chrome.
I'm not sure if this an issue or not, but I would like to understand what is going on and how to correct it.

The HTML on the original ASPX page looks like this:
<ajaxToolkit:NumericUpDownExtender ID="NumericUpDownExtender1" runat="server" TargetControlID="txtQuantityOfCases"
  Minimum="1" Width="120" TargetButtonDownID="imgDown" TargetButtonUpID="imgUp" ClientIDMode="Static" />
<asp:TextBox ID="txtQuantityOfCases" runat="server" Style="text-align: center" Text="1" Width="20px" ClientIdMode="Static"/>
<table id="Table1">
  <tr>
     <asp:ImageButton ID="imgUp" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/images/NumericUpDown/up.gif" 
       AlternateText="Down" Width="7px" Height="7px" BorderStyle="None" />
  </tr>
  <tr>
     <asp:ImageButton ID="imgDown" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/images/NumericUpDown/down.gif"
       AlternateText="Up" Width="7px" Height="7px" BorderStyle="None" />
  </tr>
</table>

Open in new window

In Chrome, the HTML on the rendered page looks like this:
<input name="ctl00$MainContent$txtQuantityOfCases" type="text" value="1" id="txtQuantityOfCases" style="width:20px;text-align: center">
<input type="image" name="ctl00$MainContent$imgUp" id="MainContent_imgUp" src="../images/NumericUpDown/up.gif" alt="Down" onclick="javascript:WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions(&quot;ctl00$MainContent$imgUp&quot;, &quot;&quot;, true, &quot;&quot;, &quot;&quot;, false, false))" style="border-style:None;height:7px;width:7px;">
<input type="image" name="ctl00$MainContent$imgDown" id="MainContent_imgDown" src="../images/NumericUpDown/down.gif" alt="Up" onclick="javascript:WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions(&quot;ctl00$MainContent$imgDown&quot;, &quot;&quot;, true, &quot;&quot;, &quot;&quot;, false, false))" style="border-style:None;height:7px;width:7px;">

Open in new window


It appears to work fine with no errors
In IE11, the HTML on the rendered page looks this:[
<input name="ctl00$MainContent$txtQuantityOfCases" type="text" value="1" id="txtQuantityOfCases" style="width:20px;text-align: center" />
<table id="Table1">
  <tr>
    <input type="image" name="ctl00$MainContent$imgUp" id="MainContent_imgUp" src="../images/NumericUpDown/up.gif" alt="Down" onclick="javascript:WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions(&quot;ctl00$MainContent$imgUp&quot;, &quot;&quot;, true, &quot;&quot;, &quot;&quot;, false, false))" style="border-style:None;height:7px;width:7px;" />
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <input type="image" name="ctl00$MainContent$imgDown" id="MainContent_imgDown" src="../images/NumericUpDown/down.gif" alt="Up" onclick="javascript:WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions(&quot;ctl00$MainContent$imgDown&quot;, &quot;&quot;, true, &quot;&quot;, &quot;&quot;, false, false))" style="border-style:None;height:7px;width:7px;" />
  </tr>
</table>

Open in new window


It displays the following errors in the IE debugging tool:
HTML1506: Unexpected token.
File: MakePTILabelWithSerialNumber.aspx, Line: 312, Column: 69
HTML1506: Unexpected token.
File: MakePTILabelWithSerialNumber.aspx, Line: 315, Column: 69

Open in new window

Where lines 312 and 315 line up with the generated HTML input control.

Can someone help shed some light on this?

Thanks,
JohnB

Remember the generated HTML is what is causing the error.
That HTML is generated once the ASPX page is compiled into HTML.
I don't (or at least I don't know of a way to) have control over what the generated HTML looks like.

so maybe you can put a function in a script tag.

<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">
function doThat(el) {
      var nw = new WebForm_PostBackOptions(el.getAttribute("name"), "", true, "", "", !0, !0);
      WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(nw);
}
</script>

Open in new window


and use :
onclick="doThat(this)"

leakim971:


Thanks for the response. Yes, I believe that would work.

For me I guess I'm confused/concerned as to why code generated by the AjaxToolkit (Microsoft) doesn't work as is out of the box in a browser written by (Microsoft).
