Ajaxify Invisible Controls


Product Progress® Telerik® UI for ASP.NET AJAX AjaxManager


How can I ajaxify Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX controls when they are not initially visible on the page?


A control which is initially invisible on the page cannot be added to the AjaxManager settings. The initiator or the updated control has to be always placed in a visible container so that the manager can locate it when necessary.

<telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="RadAjaxManager2" runat="server">
        <telerik:AjaxSetting AjaxControlID="Button1">
                <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="Panel1" />
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" />
<asp:Panel runat="server" ID="Panel1">
    <asp:Label ID="Label1" Visible="false" runat="server" Text="Label"></asp:Label>
