I've inherited a legacy application that has many issues. I'm not going to get into specifics or debates about what *should* be done; I know what *should* be done, but right now I have to <sigh> 'get 'er done'.
So here's what I need to do:
I need to get the AJAX controls working WITHOUT using the configuration file. Of course things work great if I update the configuration file declaritively, but that's not option.
Now with WF I can set my managers (such as adding the persistence service or adding the manual scheduler service) declaritively or in code; I would *hope* that this is the case with all things .NET, but I am unable to find a manager to use to add the http handlers, the page controls (so the ajax: prefixes are there), and all the other items required for AJAX enabling. And if that's not the case then, well then I'm hosed, and I'd have to say that was a bad decision on someone's part in Redmond.
Any help would be great. I used Reflector to try and figure out where the related ConfigSection handlers are called and used from but I didn't have much luck. My Googling only results in 'it's so easy, just add it to the config file!' - again not an option. If you really want to and are dying to know why it's not an option I will PM it to you, but it's not something I want to put into the public domain.
