Gotcha asked on 23 Nov 2011, 05:49 AM

I have a Parent Page A  (which is using a Master Page in which there is my RadAjaxmanager, RadScriptmanager) with a User Control. In this User Control I am loading an aspx Page B using JQuery in a hidden DIV . I have some ajaxified TAB controls which is broken after i load the content of the page in the hidden div. The error I got was "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'value' of undefined"

I was able to isolate the faulty code and it seems that because Page B being loaded contains it's own RadAjaxManager and RadScriptManager... I believe i read somewhere that I need to have only one instance of those ... So my question is, how can I fix this problem since Page B is independent from Page A and that Page B has a Grid Control and a bunch of Telerik Controls which needs both the RadAjaxManager and RadScriptManager ?

Page A with a User Control which has the following code (Javascript to load the hidden div)
    display: none;
    clear: both;
    position: relative;
    top: -1px;
    left: 14px;
    border-width: 3px;
    border-color: #2c72a0;
    border-style: solid;
    text-align: left;
    min-height: 400px;
    background-color: White;
<div class="slControlLabel">
    <asp:Label ID="lblShoppingList" CssClass="lblShoppingList" runat="server">Master Shopping List</asp:Label>
<div class="slControlSeparator">
    <img alt="" src="../Images/pxlGray.gif" style="width: 1px; height: 29px" />
<div class="slControlDropDown">
    <img alt="DropDown" src="../Images/btDropDownCharcoal.gif" style="width: 23px; height: 29px" />
<div id="wndShoppingList">
This is hidden using the CSS Above... and preloaded with ManageShoppingLists.aspx in JQuery below.
System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
sb.AppendLine(@"<script type=""text/javascript"">");
sb.AppendLine(@"window.$ = $telerik.$;");
sb.AppendLine(@"$(document).ready(function () {");
sb.AppendLine(@"$.ajaxSetup({ cache: false }); ");
// Dynamic Loading of content
sb.AppendLine(@"    var slContent = $('#wndShoppingList');  ");
sb.AppendLine(@"    slContent.load('ManageShoppingLists.aspx');  ");
// Add Click Function on the image to Show the wndShoppingList
sb.AppendLine(@"$('.slControlLabel, .slControlDropDown').bind('click',function(event){");
sb.AppendLine(@"    $('#wndShoppingList').show(); ");
sb.AppendLine(@"    event.stopPropagation(); ");
// Binding Close wndShoppingList when clicking outside the DIV
sb.AppendLine(@"// OnClick Event outside the wndShoppinglist.");
sb.AppendLine(@"$('body').click(function(event){ ");
sb.AppendLine(@"    if( != 'wndShoppingList'){ ");
sb.AppendLine(@"        $('#wndShoppingList').hide(); ");
sb.AppendLine(@"    } ");
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, this.GetType(), "slScript",sb.ToString(), false);

Hello Gotcha,

It is possible that when you load the page content via jQuery the Page lifecycle if not properly execute, the scripts for the controls are not loaded and the $create() calls are not called correctly. I would suggest that you load the other page in an iFrame or RadWindow instead.
Other than this, to further confirm the above statement, you can try loading a simple page with ASP:ScriptManager and ASP:UpdatePanel with ASP:Button or ASP:Label inside the update panel ContentTemplate and see if you observe the same behavior.

I did a few test
If I load a simple static page, it loads correctly both the hidden div and the custom tab controls on my parent page
If I load remove the radscriptManager it loads the hidden div with an empty page ( i have some rad grid on it but i guess when there is no scriptmanager it doesnt load?! another weird one but it was just a test to see if it is because of the duplicate radscriptmanager) but does not break the tab

I tried to look for a RadScriptManagerProxy but didnt find one... so im not sure how i can load the user control aspx with the grid control without the RadScriptmanager... I'm gonna try another approach with RadAjaxPanel... rather than a JQuery approach but i'll be curious to know how i can achieve it for my understanding,

I'll also tak eon your suggestion to see if ther eis any difference.,

I see that Common.js file is not loaded? Is this the Telerik's common.js file? If it is not please post your code here.
