    I using Telerik version 2011.3.1122.40 

    Please run this Codes:

    <%@ Master Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="MasterPage.master.cs" Inherits="MasterPage" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <!doctype html>
    <head runat="server">
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <Telerik:RadScriptManager ID="scriptManager" runat="server" />
            <Telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="ajaxManager" runat="server">
                    <telerik:AjaxSetting AjaxControlID="ajax">
                            <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="ajax" />
            <asp:Panel ID="ajax" runat="server">
                <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="ContentPlaceHolder1" runat="server">

    <%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/MasterPage.master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server">
        <telerik:RadCaptcha ID="captcha" Runat="server"

    when I click on refresh link, RadCaptcha will be hidden!

    Hi Mehdi,

    Updating a RadCaptcha control via a RadAjaxManager when its refresh functionality is activated is not a supported scenario. This is because RadCaptcha uses an UpdatePanel to refresh its code and it is not recommended to update the same part of a page with UpdatePanel and RadAjaxManager.

    You can utilize an UpdatePanel instead of a RadAjaxManager, although there still could be problems in some cases as nesting UpdatePanels is not a good practice.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
