Default Chapter 17

I'm an experienced programmer, but new to asp.net. While working on the first example in Chapter 17, I can't seem to get the Server-Side textbox and button to work. For some reason, when I click the Server-Side button, there is no server-side processing going on - the server-side textbox doesn't change from "Click the button ==>". The Client-side and Clear fields buttons do work. My OS is Windows 2000 advanced server (no service packs) and Visual Studio.Net 2002.

Thank you in advance,

Nothing immediately comes to mind on what might be causing the problem. I assume you are using Internet Explorer as your browser and it also has no service packs applied.

Try downloading the sample code from the book and running it. If it does not run then there is some configuration problem with your software.

Everything is working fine, now. I am too ashamed to mention the mistake I made.

First, Thank you Gaby for sharing the solution and helping all us with similar problems (sarcasm).

I am running a W2K Pro workstation and a W2K Server with IIS. My Server-Side controls were not functioning at all as well.

I found that .NET did not populate the Application Name in the Properties of the Web Site in IIS. (Internet Services Manager, Default Web Site, RIGHT-CLICK Client-Server Processing, select PROPERTIES, DIRECTORY tab)

I clicked the REMOVE button and then the CREATE button (Configuration button will become CREATE when the REMOVE button is pressed)

This fixed my Server Side controls for me.

Hope this Helps...
Not ashamed of my mistakes as I always learn from them
