I created a simple webform with 2 RadAjaxPanels with their updatemode set to Always via the onajaxsettingcreated event. Then I put 1 button in each of the RadAjaxPanels which cause them to generate an ajaxrequest. Then I put a RadAjaxLoadingPanel on the form and set the loadingpanelid of both the RadAjaxPanels to the id of the loadingpanel.
When I run the form and click button 1, the loading panel displays correctly. However, when I click the second button, the panel stops working for either ajaxpanel and will not display until the page is reloaded. If I don't set the updatemode to always, it works fine. This appears to be a bug with the RadAjaxPanel where updatemode=always. Anyone else seen this and know a work around?
