I am a one-man-and-his-dog web developer who works with ASP.Net. I currently use AjaxControlToolkit for my validation and for extenders such as the calendar extender. Ceing based in the UK and developing for the european market it is of utmost importance that my websites work well in the international environment but I am becomming increasingly disatisfied with the performance of the AjaxControlToolkit.
My requests for an alternative that 'just works' pointed me here but I also notice that there are a lot of fourm posts relating to lots of different issues; now this can be an indicator of software that has a lot of bugs, or a lot of users that are implementing it incorrectly or an active community working with a very capable piece of software that has a few issues that require the odd work around.
I was wondering what people's general feelings were on this system? Is it worth investing in if you want a plug-in-and-forget-about-it type solution to validation and extenders or should I consider cutting my own controls?
Any comments are appreciated (and I understand that the people selling the software are on the forums so obviously everything is taken with a pinch of salt :) )
