  • AjaxControlToolkit-Framework3.5.zip is the full release package with complete source code to all controls, the test framework, VSI, and more.
  • AjaxControlToolkit-Framework3.5-NoSource.zip contains only the sample web site and VSI and is for people who don't need or want the source code for the controls.

You can also download the Toolkit for .NET Framework 2.0, ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 and Visual Studio 2005.
  • AjaxControlToolkit.zip is the full release package with complete source code to all controls, the test framework, VSI, and more.
  • AjaxControlToolkit-NoSource.zip contains only the sample web site and VSI and is for people who don't need or want the source code for the controls.

To start using the Toolkit in your own web sites, please follow the instructions on this page: http://www.asp.net/AJAX/AjaxControlToolkit/Samples/Walkthrough/Setup.aspx.

To start building your own extenders, launch the VSI installers on your machine. This will install new Visual Studio templates that contain everything you need to build extenders.

To get started with source code, simply load the "AjaxControlToolkit.sln" solution in Visual Studio 2005, and run the solution. This will launch the web site and allow you to experiment with the different controls. Also included in the solution is the source code for all the controls.

The web site also contains walkthroughs covering:
  • Setting up your machine to use control extenders
  • Using control extenders with your ASP.NET web site
  • Creating new control extenders
  • Writing your own automated tests

Please see the sample website release notes for more details.

Reviews for this release

Why did you guys make a 3.5/4.0 version & make them not backward-compatible? Means you need to get .NET version 1st. An installer to autoupdate VS to use v3.5 of System.Web.Extensions would've been nice. For those wondering how to install-you just put the DLL in your project's Bin, reference it, add a Register tag. Right-click Toolbox, Add Tbx, browse to the DLL. Add a ref to System.Web.Ext 3.5.

You have converted an easy to use tool into a nightmare. I have been trying to get my system back to work for two days and I still can't. Thanks for messing it up!!!

Why are this coming with VS2008 and .NET3.5 only. I hope server side has this extension installed or upgraded automatically. I'm having hard time to figure out which web server needs for update on Ajax control's for asp.net website.

Total nightmare to work with if you don't have a dirt simple site. Impossible to debug and the .net 2 version is no longer supported. Overall it's a buggy bloated pig and I'd rather use jQuery.

After downloading the zip file, While i am trying to open the zip file, it is saying that the zip file is corrupted and i am not able to download the toolkit. Please help me to solve this issue.

Works fine in VS2005 sp1 on the .NET 2.0 Framework. Did have to fiddle around with the assemblies, and update all the web.configs for old proj.

Easily one of the best projects on CodePlex. I use it in almost every site I make.

Sir when I am adding ajxtoolkit to ajax enable asp.net website then it is showing this error. “could not load the file or assemble ‘system.web.extention’ version 1. ”, The system cannot find the file. -- Regards Pankaj Deharia http://emobiletech.blogspot.com (Technologies in Mobile World) http://g4recruitmentblog.blogspot.com (Online Test conduction Process and Search Jobs)

This messed up my Web Project!!! It upgrades your System.Web.Extensions and System.Web.Extensions.Design to version and now my project will not run or compile because it says there is an ambiguous reference (between version 3.5 and 3.6) These 3.6 versions are now in my GAC and I CANNOT get them out!! DO NOT USE THIS IF YOU PLAN TO USE NORMAL ASP.NET TOO!

Good features, but concerned that ASP is losing ground to other development platforms. For example, the double slider is good, but there are better to be had with Scriptaculous. The slider collision is not so good in that one slider disappears under the other. Any easy fixes? I've been trying to make it work all day.

Great realease thanks. Probably one of the easiest things I have installed in quite a while, so shouldn't be seeing any complaints about that ;-)

No real fixes that I needed this time around. Perhaps if you all fixed the show-stopping flaws I've documented to date, I'd consider coming back. Unfortunately, there's no response (despite votes affirming the bugs). For an "open source" project, it's pretty pathetic. Nice try, but I'll stick to other better supported open source projects.

2 minutes, downloaded, unzipped, installed. You can watch the video provided for installing and starting.... http://www.asp.net/learn/ajax-videos/video-76.aspx or simply unzip the package to a designated location, and add the AjaxControlExtender.vsi file to your project, and... POOF! It's that easy. Please, read before you rant.

Many Kudos on a great release! If you rated this a single star because you had trouble installing the software codeplextrl maybe you should attempt an interesting career in pc repair. Shame on you for putting down a great suite of tools so freely given. Seriously, this is for software developers, go take a look at Microsoft Expressions, you will find it more your speed. I installed in 15 minutes.
by djProduct on Aug 8, 2008 at 3:35 AM
Quite good, but installer is required.
by shatl on Aug 6, 2008 at 3:06 PM
Good all around improvement (even if they haven't incorporated my fix to the accordian ;-) ).

Some very useful controls/extenders in here.
by kristofera on Aug 5, 2008 at 5:26 AM
pretty good
by ormico on Aug 5, 2008 at 2:46 AM
NO stars - this release sucks! No installer - what?!@#$ Unzip a bunch of loose files, and so where are they supposed to go? Spell it out, please or have you ever heard of screen shots? How do I get the toolkit templates installed into Visual Studio 2005? Please, please, please quit making me read so much drivel that tells me nothing. Get this is what you need, do this, put it here, etc.only 10 2go
