    Is there any opportunity in the future to have RadAjaxPanel's container element be customizable?  If I could use a TBODY instead of a DIV it would be fantastic to support in-table update panels easily.

    Hi Colin,

    I am afraid we don't have plans to support such functionality in the future. RadAjaxPanel internally uses asp:UpdatePanels, which render either <div> or <span>.

    Theoretically, if RadAjaxPanel renders a <tbody>, it will not be of much use, because you can have only one <tbody>, so you will be updating the whole table again. And the AjaxPanel cannot be rendered as a <tr> because you will have duplicate <tr>s - one from the AjaxPanel and one from the asp:Table. In short, I don't think update panels will ever be able to "inject" themselves and be part of some other element (control) HTML output.
