Desperate for AJAX-help. Can't implement it.

I've tried on several occasions to get AJAX running on our website, first in CMS 5 and now version 6. has anybody got a simple step by step guide what needs to be added to the web.config to get AJAX up and running? I've tried copying from another project where it works but I end up with having crashes on the site. At this moment I try to get it running on a completely new site running CMS 6 so that I know what needs to be done to the regular site afterwards 'cause at this moment there has been so many changes made to the regular web.config at several different occasions that I've lost track of what should be there and what should not.

I'm completely lost. Anybody knows exactly what things that are needed in the web.config to get it running?

There's an old CMS5 guide here: http://labs.episerver.com/en/Blogs/Mari-Jorgensen/Dates/112298/7/Using-Ajax-in-EPiServer-CMS-5/

Haven't tried it with CMS6, though. The web.config format is a little bit different in IIS7 (system.webserver is now system.web - httphandlers is now handlers, etc).

Read about the web.config changes here: http://world.episerver.com/Documentation/Items/Tech-Notes/EPiServer-CMS-5/EPiServer-CMS-5-R2-SP1/Changes-Between-IIS6-and-IIS7/

In web.config (this is for IIS7)

1. add sectionGroup

<sectionGroup name="system.web.extensions" type="System.Web.Configuration.SystemWebExtensionsSectionGroup, System.Web.Extensions, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35">
          <sectionGroup name="scripting" type="System.Web.Configuration.ScriptingSectionGroup, System.Web.Extensions, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35">
              <section name="scriptResourceHandler" type="System.Web.Configuration.ScriptingScriptResourceHandlerSection, System.Web.Extensions, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" requirePermission="false" allowDefinition="MachineToApplication" />

              </sectionGroup>
          </sectionGroup>
      </sectionGroup>

2. Add control to pages (search for <pages)

<add tagPrefix="asp" namespace="System.Web.UI" assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />
        <add tagPrefix="asp" namespace="System.Web.UI.WebControls" assembly="System.Web.Extensions, Version=3.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />

3. Modules/handlers (in system.webServer)

When adding this to my development site everything works fine but when I add it at the public site I get "Sys is undefined" message in Internet Explorer. Any ideas to what might be causing this? I've Googled it and there seem to be a lot of discussions about it but they all seem to be from 2006-2007 when it was first introduced and even still being beta-tested.

Sorry for taking so long to reply, I had my hands full. I compared my modules and handlers to the ones in Ted's blogpost and it did the trick. The "sys undefined" is gone. Thanks!

There were some modules and handlers that were added to our site that wasn't in Teds so what I did was just to put them last. Since I'm really bad at web.configediting, would you mind looking through them and see if they are ok with being at the bottom? It's the four last modules and the last handler. I don't even know what they do or if they even matter.
