UpdatePanel on webpart still refreshing whole page

Gerard Young asked on September 13, 2018 12:04


I've got a form with dependent fields. I've enabled "Use update panel" on the webpart but it's still refreshing the whole page when I update the dependant field.

The Dependant field is a Radio buttons control and when one is selected it should render a text box below. I'm trying to use an update panel as to not lose focus on the radio buttons.

Any ideas?

You might want to inspect the page and see if the control is rendered as a link (<a> tag) or an actual button. A button won't post back whereas a link will simply navigate away from the current page. Without seeing your source, it's hard to tell what you have setup.

Hi Brenden,

The control that's causing the refresh is a radio buttons control with a simple text dataset. there are no buttons or links involved.
