    I understand that you have to have a ScriptManager or a RadScriptManager on your page before you add any Ajax controls.  But what do you do if you have a RadMenu on your master page with the RadScript Manager and then on your content page you have a RadGrid?  How do you enable Ajax onto the RadGrid with your ScriptManager or RadScriptManager?  I'm a bit perplexed as to how this would work being that you can only have one ScriptManager or RadScriptManager per page.

    Hello Brett,

    RadScriptManager can replace the regular MS ScriptManager control and serves the same purpose with the addition that it combines the scripts of all RadControls on the page for better performance. More information about our RadScriptManager can be found here:

    RadAjaxManager, on the other hand, helps you ajaxify controls and provide granular ajax settings when necessary (without the necessity to use MS UpdatePanels and attach ajax triggers). How to ajaxify controls in master/content page or webform/user control scenario you can see from the following online demo of the product:
    (examine the information from the help topics linked at the bottom of the Description tab as well)

    Hi Syed,

    Something like this should be working:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        RadScriptManager scriptManager = (RadScriptManager) this.Master.FindControl("RadScriptManager1");
        string ID = scriptManager.ClientID;

    I hope this helps.
