updatepanel returning wrong form action url



I'm in the process of migrating a site to v5 and I'm experiencing a strange behaviour. On a ajax page there's an updatepanel with an asyncpostbaktrigger to a button outside the panel. 

What happens is that the first ajax works posts nicely to the friendly url, but the response always sets the form tag action attirbute to a semi-unfriendly url.

e.g. if the current page url is /foo/bar the form action is set to /foo/mytemplatefilename.aspx?id=1234 - notice that only the last segment is replaced with the unfriendly url. 

using the same markup and codebehind on a demosite works fine and i've tried comparing the web.configs to see if there was anything out of the ordinary there but i didn't find anything.

Looking at the SDK i also found an updatepanelrewrite class but i didn't find anything which would indicate that the form tag should be modified by the code in that class.

Any help is appreciated.

I'm having the same problem. Did you ever find a solution to this?

There is a control adapter for HtmlForm that should take care the described problem. There should be a AdapterMappings.browser file in the App_Browsers folder with an entry like:

<adapter controlType="System.Web.UI.HtmlControls.HtmlForm" adapterType="EPiServer.WebControls.ControlAdapters.HtmlFormAdapter" />

Yes, we had accidentally removed that file. This solved the problem for us. Thanks!
