Country selector fires postback if inside updatepanel

Dmitriy Nenazhenko asked on June 27, 2016 08:42

Hi all, I am trying to add form into updatepanel. In my form there is country selector exists.
When I select country postback happens. How to avoid this? Because I have if(isPostBack && Page.IsValid) condition on my forms OnLoad, so if it passes then I show different layout.
But country selector every time does postback and every time page is valid.
