Many thanks to by Obout http://www.obout.com
for building this.
The ComboBox control provides a DropDownList of items, combined with TextBox. Different modes determine the interplay between the text entry and the list of items.
Many thanks to Dan Ludwig for building this.
The ColorPicker Control Extender can be attached to any ASP.NET TextBox control. It provides client-side color-picking functionality with UI in a popup control.
Many thanks to Alexander Turlov for building this.
More than twenty important bug fixes have been made in this release, across many controls, corresponding to some of the most requested fixes.
We would like to specially thank all the patch
contributors from the Toolkit community whose fixes helped make this release possible. We recognize their names on the Toolkit Patch Hall of Fame
New Tutorials have been created, with improved integration in the ASP.NET AJAX Web site
