This is purely my lack of understanding, but I everything I have read so far has not really clicked yet, so I thought I would just come out and ask.  As a simplified example I have a master page with a RadAjaxManager control and two ContentPlaceHolder area declared.  I have a content page that defines content for the two ContentPlaceHolders like so.

<asp:Content ID="Content4" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolderMain" Runat="Server"
    <telerik:RadAjaxManagerProxy ID="RadAjaxManagerProxy1" runat="server"
    </telerik:RadAjaxManagerProxy> 
    <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" onclick="Button1_Click" /> 
</asp:Content> 
 
<asp:Content ID="content5" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolderRight" runat="server"
    <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text="0"></asp:TextBox>     
</asp:Content> 

and a very simple iterate algorithm on click

 protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) 
    { 
        this.RadAjaxManagerProxy1.AjaxSettings.AddAjaxSetting(Button1, TextBox1, null); 
    } 
 
    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) 
    { 
        this.TextBox1.Text = (int.Parse(this.TextBox1.Text) + 1).ToString(); 
    } 


If I comment out the Page_Load contents.  the iterator works as expected with full page post backs.  However, with the AddAjaxSetting() method being called I always receive the exception Object reference not set to an instance of an object. on that line.  Button1 has a non null value, TextBox1 has a non null value, and RadAjaxManagerProxy1 has a non null value.  What is the piece I am missing here? 

Thanks for your time.

Playing with my simplified project some more I notice that if I remove the RadAjaxManager from the Master page, and replace the RadAjaxManagerProxy with a RadAjaxManager on my content page everything seems to work exactly as I would expect. 

I have also noticed that the 2 content panels are irrelevant to this issue.  placing the RadAjaxManagerProxy, Button, and Textbox in the same ContentPlaceHolder does not resolve the problem I am experiencing.

Am I missing something that hooks the RadAjaxManagerProxy in the content page to the RadAjaxManager in the master page?

Hello Jim,

The proxy control is provided for design-time configuration only. So indeed, you should get the RadAjaxManager instance when you need client or server-side functionality like adding AJAX settings dynamically. You can read more about the proxy control in the docs here.

Obviously I missed that info in the docs, thanks for spelling it out for me.  And thanks for putting together such a high caliber control suite, and supporting it so well.
