    I have a page loading a usercontrol. The User control has a repeater with a link button in it. On every click of the link button I want to reload a RadGrid on the page.  While loading the RadGrid I am showing a RadAjaxLoadingPanel. 

    Currently the RadAjaxLoadingPanel appears only for the click event of the first link button of the repeater. For the other link buttons, it does a full postback. In the repeater's data bound event  I have the code to wireup the RadAjaxLoadingPanel to show for every item's link button control.

    protected void RptLetterIndexItemDataBound(object sender, RepeaterItemEventArgs e)
                if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
                    var btn = e.Item.FindControl("lnkLetter") as LinkButton;
                    AjaxManagerProxy1.AjaxSettings.AddAjaxSetting(btn, RadGrid2, RadAjaxLoadingPanel2);

    However when i see the source of the page , I see that the event is only hooked up for the first repeater item. How can I bind the ajaxloadingpanel for every link button in the repeater ?

    {InitControlID : "ctl00_ContentMain_SkillsSearchCtl_rptLetterIndex_ctl00_lnkLetter",UpdatedControls : [{ControlID:"ctl00_ContentMain_SkillsSearchCtl_RadGrid2",PanelID:"ctl00_ContentMain_SkillsSearchCtl_RadAjaxLoadingPanel2"}]}

    Hi Mayuresh,

    Try adding the ajax setting on PageLoad like this:
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            foreach (RepeaterItem item in RptLetterIndex.Items)
                LinkButton btn = (LinkButton )item.FindControl("lnkLetter");
                RadAjaxManager.GetCurrent(Page).AjaxSettings.AddAjaxSetting(btn, RadGrid2, RadAjaxLoadingPanel2);     

    and verify if this works for you.
