    I'm in the process of stripping out update panels and replacing them with the RadAjaxManager control, I'm having difficulty getting the AutoCompleteExtender to fire though. Used to work fine till I took the update panel out. What's the correct procedure for this?

    I've tried this RadAjaxManager setting but it doesn't work:-

    <telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="RadAjaxManager1" runat="server">
                <telerik:AjaxSetting AjaxControlID="ConsigneeTxt">
                        <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="ConsigneeTxt" />

    Here's the applicable html:-

    <asp:TextBox ID="TestTxt" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true"></asp:TextBox>
    <asp:TextBoxWatermarkExtender ID="TextBoxWatermarkExtender1" TargetControlID="TestTxt" WatermarkText="Start typing..." runat="server" WatermarkCssClass="WaterMarked"></asp:TextBoxWatermarkExtender>
    <asp:AutoCompleteExtender ID="AutoCompleteExtender1" CompletionInterval="250" runat="server" MinimumPrefixLength="2" ServiceMethod="GetName" ServicePath="~/WebService8.asmx"  TargetControlID="TestTxt" UseContextKey="true"></asp:AutoCompleteExtender>

    Hi Alex,

    Could you please let me know what the "ConsigneeTxt" control added in the RadAjaxManager setting is? I would suggest you to try wrap the target textbox as well as the related extender controls into regular asp panel and add this Panel to update itself in the RadAjaxManager settings.

    All the best,
