January 10, 2008

Today, what I am going to share with all of you is “How to install AJAX On Machines Running Visual Studio 2005“.

To proceed further, make sure that you must have:

  • Visual Studio 2005 installed on your system
  • AjaxControlToolkit.zip file
    If you do not have the AjaxControlToolkit.zip then you can download it from here.
  • ASP AJAX Extensions Setup
    If you do not have the ASP AJAX Extensions Setup then you can download the setup named ASPAJAXExtSetup from here.

Follow the following steps to install AJAX:

  • Unzip the AjaxControlToolkit.zip file.
  • After unzipping the file, place the folder AjaxControlToolkit at “DRIVE:\Program Files ” where DRIVE can be C, D, E, etc. There will be a folder AjaxControlExtender under AjaxControlToolkit. In this folder, there will be file named AjaxControlExtender.vsi. Run this file.
  • Run the setup of ASPAJAXExtSetup
Now AJAX has been installed on your system.
Now open up Visual Studio 2005 and create a New Website. While creating a website, you have to select ASP.Net AJAX-Enabled Web Site.
To make the AJAX controls available in the Toolbox of Visual Studio 2005, follow the following steps:
  • Right click on Toolbox and click Add Tab, if you want to add AJAX Controls in separate tab. Otherwise click Choose Items and then click Browse.
  • After then select “DRIVE:\Program Files\AjaxControlToolkit\SampleWebSite\Bin\AjaxControlToolkit.dll“. Now you will notice Accordion, AccordionPane and other AJAX Controls in the .Net Framework Components.
  • Check those controls and click OK.
Now you can see the AJAX Controls in the Toolbox.
Happy coding.
