If you are using MasterPages and Content 8 pages in your app - you also have the option 7 of putting the ScriptManager on the Masterpage 6 and then every ContentPage that uses that 5 MasterPage will NOT need a script manager added. If 4 you need some of the special configurations 3 of the ScriptManager - like javascript file 2 references - you can use a ScriptManagerProxy 1 control on the content page that needs it.

you will also need to have a asp:ScriptManager 5 control on every page that you want to use 4 ajax controls on. you should be able to 3 just drag the scriptmanager over from your 2 toolbox one the toolkit is installed following 1 Zack's instructions.

It's really simple, just download the latest toolkit 11 from Codeplex and add the extracted AjaxControlToolkit.dll to your toolbox 10 in Visual Studio by right clicking the toolbox 9 and selecting 'choose items'. You will then 8 have the controls in your Visual STudio 7 toolbox and using them is just a matter 6 of dragging and dropping them onto your 5 form, of course don't forget to add a asp:ScriptManager to 4 every page that uses controls from the toolkit, or 3 optionally include it in your master page 2 only and your content pages will inherit 1 the script manager.
