SharePoint 2010 has a ScriptManager added to every Master Page by default. You need to open up the Master Page you’re using and remove the existing tag and replace it with the following Script Manager:

<asp:ToolkitScriptManager ID="ToolkitScriptManager1" runat="server" />

Add a Script Manager in the your custom master page, then it will be available to any page referencing the master page, rather than adding references to individual pages.

  • And how should I open a master page in Visual Studio ? Where could I found this master page ?

    To do this, open up the master page for your site. Typically, this will be located at <site url>/_catalogs/masterpage. You can edit this file by opening it in an editor such as Microsoft SharePoint Designer, or directly in Notepad by opening your master page library via DAV (typically \\server\<pathtosite>\_catalogs\masterpage) Dec 30, 2012 at 19:43
  • After I replecing all master pages in notepad nothing changes and CalendarExtander doesn't shown. Please Falak help.

  • Have you added the reference to the assembly? <%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="asp" %> as well? Dec 30, 2012 at 22:35
