    Hi, I have a Repeater inside a RadAjaxPanel, and each repeater item has a DropDownList with Autopostback.  When I change the DropDownList selection a full postback happens instead of a partial one.  I tried wrapping my repeater in an extra panel and add configuration to the AjaxManager but with no luck.  If I try to create settings programmatically on the DropDownList then no postback happens at all.  Can you please help?  Here is my code:

    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="AjaxTest.aspx.cs" Inherits="AppointmentsScheduling.Web.AjaxTest" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
    <head runat="server">
     <form id="form1" runat="server">
     <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="ScriptManager" runat="server" EnableViewState="true"></telerik:RadScriptManager>
     <telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="AjaxManager" runat="server">
     <telerik:RadAjaxPanel ID="AjaxActionPanel" runat="server">
     <asp:Repeater ID="AppointmentList" runat="server">
     <div class="column statuscolumn">
     <asp:Label ID="lblStatus" runat="server" Text="* Status" AssociatedControlID="Status" CssClass="required" />
     <asp:DropDownList ID="Status" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true"
     <asp:ListItem Text="1" Value="1" />
     <asp:ListItem Text="2" Value="2" />




    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Web;
    using System.Web.UI;
    using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
    using Telerik.Web.UI;
    namespace AppointmentsScheduling.Web
        public partial class AjaxTest : System.Web.UI.Page
            protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                if (!IsPostBack)
                    AppointmentList.DataSource = new int[] { 1, 2, 3 };
            protected void Status_SelectedIndexChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
                var Status = (DropDownList)sender;
                var lblStatus = (Label)Status.Parent.FindControl("lblStatus");
                lblStatus.Text = "* Status " + Status.SelectedValue;

    The problem with full postback of dropdown placed in a repeater is not related to RadAjaxPanel. As you can see from the attached sample page when I replaced the AjaxPanel with MS UpdatePanel behavior is the same. This means that the problem comes from the dropdown when it is placed in the repeater.

    Moreover, if you use RadComboBox instead of DropDownList the ajax will work without problems.
