I am building a list of questions with controls. One of the question returns with a radiobutton list, that when the user selects "other" a textbox will display for them to enter in additional information. I must be missing something, when I debug it looks like the textbox should work fine however the textbox never shows up... can somone help me to see what i am missing? My guess is that I somehow need to add this new textbox I am building to the AjaxManager ( if so can someone show me how to do this ? )...

I would have thought it would be ok as it is in the Placeholder that is already in the AjaxManager ?

here is the class:

public

 

partial class Tools_Workforce_OUT_PulseSurveyQuestions : EDCC.PageBase

 

{

private string _login = string.Empty;

 

private string _user = string.Empty;

 

private string _location = string.Empty;

 

private string _roll = string.Empty;

string surveyType = "Video";

{

 

// Use to get user info from Active diretory

 

ActiveDirectoryBase ad = new ActiveDirectoryBase(User.Identity.Name.Split('\\')[1]);

 

base.lblMaster("PageName", "~/Tools/Workforce/OUT_PulseSurveyQuestions.aspx");

 

base.lblMaster("LastMod", "06/11/2009");

 

base.lblMaster("lblHeader", "Pulse Survey");

 

base.showMasterControl("pnlFooterLinks", base.m_CharterBase.GetSiteKey("ShowFooterLinks"));

(EDCC.
User)Master.curUser = (EDCC.User)base.curUser();

 

// assign user info from Active diretory

string.Empty ? ad.Department : ad.Location;
