AJAX: Timeout problem by asyncronous postback

The most common cause of this problem is the time of asyncronous response. It occur when the response takes more than 90 seconds. First of all be sure that there is no client script in the update panel. Use

ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(Me.Page, Me.GetType(), "tmp", "<script type='text/javascript'></script>", False)

to register such scripts during loading page.

If the reason is long calculations on the srever you can change the asyncronous timeout in the ScriptManager tag.

<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" AsyncPostBackTimeOut="3600" runat="server" />

This makes the response to be valid an hour.

Error rendering a custom control

Maybe this is a little MS Visual Studio bug. It is connected to the control registering in the page in case of using a control defined in App_Code folder, not in another assembly. The exception thrown while opening design view of the page is:

Error Rendering Control - [control] An unhandled exception has occurred. There was an error parsing the theme. The assembly attribute cannot be an empty string.

So the VS environment doesn't recognize the control defined in the App_Code. Therefore the control regitration must inlcude the assembly name - "App_Code"

<%@ Register TagPrefix="my" Namespace="MyControls" assembly="App_Code" %>


<add tagPrefix="my" namespace="MyControls" assembly="App_Code" />
in web.config - pages/controls section
