    Hi All,

    I have the following requirement. I have a RadGrid in the payment page. I want to automatically update the Grid with new data every five minutes when it is displayed. I tried adding the timer control directly to the AJAX settings as updated control but it didnt worked. It would be helpful if anyone provides a sample solution.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi JC,

    Please have a look at the following sample code which illustrates how to AJAXify the standard MS Timer control with RadAjaxManager. One cannot add the Timer control directly to the AJAX settings as updated control. Instead, just wrap the timer in a container like ASP:Panel and set the container as updated control. The sample code also demonstrates continuous update of RadGrid per certain interval. This however can be achieved by binding the Grid client or server-side through Web Service.

    <telerik:RadScriptManager runat="server" ID="RadScriptManager1" />
    <telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="RadAjaxManager1" runat="server">
            <telerik:AjaxSetting AjaxControlID="Timer1">
                    <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="RadGrid1" LoadingPanelID="LoadingPanel1">
            <telerik:AjaxSetting AjaxControlID="DropDownList1">
                    <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="Panel1"></telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl>
                    <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="Panel2"></telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl>
    <telerik:RadAjaxLoadingPanel ID="LoadingPanel1" runat="server">
            <td style="width: 300px">
                Change Timer Interval:
                <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" AutoPostBack="true" OnSelectedIndexChanged="DropDownList1_SelectedIndexChanged">
                    <asp:ListItem Text="2 seconds" Value="2000"></asp:ListItem>
                    <asp:ListItem Text="3 seconds" Value="3000" Selected="True"></asp:ListItem>
                    <asp:ListItem Text="5 seconds" Value="5000"></asp:ListItem>
                <asp:Panel ID="Panel2" runat="server">
                    Timer interval:
                    <asp:Label ID="lblInterval" runat="server" Text="3000" Style="font-weight: bold;"></asp:Label>
    <div style="float: left;">
