    Hi, I'm new to using the controls and I was wondering what the RadControl equivalent of an update panel is and how it works.

    Hello Jean-Guy,

     We offer RadAjax which is built on top of MS AJAX and the control which is the counterpart of the standard update panel is called RadAjaxPanel. However, I recommend to examine the other RadAjax controls, especially the RadAjaxManager which help to easily achieve more complex ajax settings.

    The demos of the RadAjax controls are available below:


    And the corresponding online documentation is available here:


    I hope that my reply is detailed enough and helpful, in case you have additional questions, do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Dear Sir/Mam,

    I am facing an issue on which I am completely struck upon. Please consider the following scenario:

    I have a radpanelbar which has 10 radpanelitems. Each radpanelitem has some drop down lists and a radgrid. Apart from this radpanelbar I have a separate radbutton on the page. Both of these controls (radpanelbar and the radbutton) are inside a radajaxpanel. Now when I press the radbutton the control goes to the server and processing takes place for around 45 mins. In this 45 mins, the server uses the items I selected in the drop drop lists and the rows that were selected in the radgrid and does the processing one by one for each radpanelitem. 

    Right now the front end is getting updated only after the 45 mins of processing gets completed however what I want is to continue update the frontend as the processing continues like say at every 1 min. Could you please suggest some solution. 

    I have read almost every article on the internet with regards to this scenario but haven't been able to solve the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

    Thanks and Regards,

    Can you try disabling ajax by setting EnableAjax property of RadAjaxPanel for false and see if this helps?
    Note that we will need a sample project which we can debug locally in order to be able to investigate the described problem and provide a solution for it.

    All the best,
