Hi guys

I am newbie to AJAX usage.
I am using visual web developer 2008 express edition.
I downloaded AjaxControlToolkit.Binary.NET35 from codeplex site and extracted the zip file. Then I added the toolbox to visual web developer by adding a new tab naming it AJAX Kit.

And then added items to it by selecting AjaxControlToolkit.dll, the one that I unzipped.

AJAX tools appear in toolbox. Even after using ScriptManager tool, when I drag one of the controls for example AutoCompleteExtender, I get a circle with black diagonal line indicating I cant use the tool

Why is it so?

When I hard code the the controls in tags in source tab, I don't get an error but I don't see the tool in design view.

The following lines are also present:
<%@ Register assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" namespace="System.Web.UI" tagprefix="asp" %>
<%@ Register assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" tagprefix="ajaxToolkit" %>

Can anyone please help me?

Thank you!

Edited for readability and formatting. Also removed the annoying line "its urgent".

I'm not sure how it could be urgent, from the sounds of it, you're obvioulsy not in a class, or at a place where anyone should be paying for your code. In any case, free help comes when it comes, not when you want it.

Do the controls appear when you run your website ? Design view is rubbish anyhow, you shouldn't really use it. If you hover your mouse over the circle with the black line, do you get an error message ?
