the AjaxControlToolkit has a new release, the release includes bug fixes and new HTMLEditor, ComboBox, ColorPicker controls/extenders.
I liked the HTMLEditor control so much from first sight. Pretty lightweight and customizable. I still need to check whether it works fine inside UpdatePanel and whether it can be used with RequiredFieldValidator or so.
The ColorPicjker is just an extender to TextBox control. This means a lot of opportunities and promises less problems with validators, etc… It’s a very nice one too.
The ComboBox is a control that is like a DropDownList with auto complete except that the user can enter a new text that is NOT in the existing items. This is good or bad based on your sole use.
I did not like how it’s not well styled in the example page. This means it’s going to be headache to style in my sites as well, which is one of the biggest problems with AJAXToolkit in general.
P.S. Please help me out by checking this offer, then look below for a small Thank You.
How did I learn that?
