Do the control toolkit files on the CDN have to be accessed individually? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1833980242 posted

    It appears that the Ajax Control Toolkit files have to be accessed individually since they are listed in the link below.  Is this correct?

    http://www.asp.net/ajaxlibrary/CDNACT40412.ashx

    I might use a few of the extenders and want to know the best way to access them.  Is accessing the individual files the only way to access them, or is there a way to access the entire library?

    Should the entire library be used (if available) when only a few files are needed?

    is there a way to access the entire library?

    You can try adding the AjaxControlToolkit.dll to your project and this will ensure that all the controls are available regardless of wheather your are using it or not.

    Easy way to use Ajax Control Toolkit Controls

    To adding the control to VS IDE you can follow the below steps

    1. Launch Visual Studio and create a new ASP.NET Web Forms project or website. Open Default.aspx in the Visual Studio editor.
    2. Create a new Toolbox tab by right-clicking the Toolbox and selecting Add Tab. Name the new tab Ajax Control Toolkit.
    3. Right-click beneath the new tab and select the menu option Choose Items... Click the Browse button and browse to the folder where you extracted the Ajax Control Toolkit. Pick the AjaxControlToolkit.dll and click the OK button to close the Choose Toolbox Items dialog.

    For More Details you can get from this link. Take a look at the Tip no 3 in below link : Adding controls to VS IDE - Select the Show Me Option to see the animated gif which shows all the steps

    After this you just need to drag and drop the controls just like how we use normal asp.net controls.

    The CDN is meant to be fast, portable, and the latest version.  It does not allow the entire library as that would slow it down too much.  Just pick the CDN scripts you are actually using, or follow the other posts and include the entire ACT assembly in your project.
