When the project is further isolated, the issue becomes more obvious.
The problem is that the Save and Cancel buttons trigger postback when clicked. But your content page is in an update panel. There are two ways to overcome the issue - either trigger async postback on Save and Cancel, or do not use an update panel which holds the content page.
I am sending you the project further isolated.
Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans?
Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed?
