SmartPart 1.2 Beta: Issue with using the AJAX webpart

Dec 13, 2007 at 3:29 PM
Hi,

Smartpart seems like just what I need (developing web controls for use both in sharepoint sites and conventional web sites. However, when trying out SmartPart, I ran into this issue:

Adding the "regular" smartpart works fine, but I am not able to add the AJAX smartpart to any sharepoint site. I keep getting the error message:
"Unable to add selected web part(s).
SmartPart with AJAX: The Web Part you attempted to add no longer exists in the Closed Web Parts Gallery. Refresh your browser to update the Web Part Page and the Gallery."

But the thing is that none of my web parts are in the closed web parts gallery, and they all work fine.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

Regards,
Anders Bryhni

hi
in order to make your Sharepoit server "Ajax enabled" you have to do some things:
give a look here:

and here :

you can also use the ajax toolkit:
