    [Method Error 500]

    Hi all!

    I've been working on trying to get a page with cascading dropdowns to work. Right now the page loads but when i attempt to see what is in the first dropdown I get: [Method error 500]

    The dropdown list is as follows:

    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" />
            Department:<asp:DropdownList id="DeptSelect" runat="server" Enabled="True"></asp:DropdownList><br/>
    	Manager:<asp:DropdownList id="MgrSelect" runat="server"></asp:DropdownList><br/>
    	Team Leader:<asp:DropdownList id="TlSelect" runat="server"></asp:DropdownList><br/>
    	CSR:<asp:DropdownList id="CsrSelect" runat="server"></asp:DropdownList><br/>
            <cc1:CascadingDropDown ID="CascadingDropDown1" runat="server" TargetControlID="DeptSelect" Category="Department" PromptText="Select a Department" ServicePath="WebService/Hierarchy.asmx" ServiceMethod="GetDepartments" ></cc1:CascadingDropDown>
            <cc1:CascadingDropDown ID="CascadingDropDown2" runat="server" TargetControlID="MgrSelect" ParentControlID="DeptSelect" Category="Manager" PromptText="Select a Manager" ServicePath="WebService/Hierarchy.asmx" ServiceMethod="GetManagers" LoadingText="Load Text...."></cc1:CascadingDropDown>
            <cc1:CascadingDropDown ID="CascadingDropDown3" runat="server" TargetControlID="TlSelect" ParentControlID="MgrSelect" Category="TL" PromptText="Select a Team Leader" ServicePath="WebSerivce/Hierarchy.asmx" ServiceMethod="GetTL" LoadingText="Load Text...."></cc1:CascadingDropDown>
            <cc1:CascadingDropDown ID="CascadingDropDown4" runat="server" TargetControlID="CsrSelect" ParentControlID="TlSelect" Category="csr" PromptText="Select a CSR" ServicePath="WebSerivce/Hierarchy.asmx" ServiceMethod="GetCSR" LoadingText="Load Text...."></cc1:CascadingDropDown>
    on the top of my aspx page I have the following:<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="cc1" %>
    this is my asmx

    <%@ WebService Language="VB" Class="Hierarchy" %>
    Imports System.Web
    Imports System.Web.Services
    Imports System.Web.Services.Protocols
    Imports System.Collections.Generic
    Imports System.Data
    Imports System.Data.SqlClient
    Imports System.Web.Script.Services
    Imports AjaxControlToolkit
    <WebService(Namespace:="http://tempuri.org/")> _
    <WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo:=WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)> _
    <Global.Microsoft.VisualBasic.CompilerServices.DesignerGenerated()> _ 
    <System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService()> _
    Public Class Hierarchy
        Inherits System.Web.Services.WebService
        Protected WithEvents from_date As System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox
        Protected WithEvents to_date As System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox
        Public Sub New()
        End Sub
        <WebMethod()> _
        Public Function  GetDepartments(ByVal knownCategoryValues As String, ByVal category As String) As CascadingDropDownNameValue()
           Dim strConnection As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("PROD").ConnectionString
            Dim sqlConn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(strConnection)
            Dim strQuery As String = "Prg_GetHierarchy '" & from_date.Text & "', '" & to_date.Text & "'" 
            Dim cmdFetchDept As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand(strQuery, sqlConn)
            Dim dtrDept As SqlDataReader
            Dim myDepartments As New List(Of CascadingDropDownNameValue)
            dtrDept = cmdFetchDept.ExecuteReader
            While dtrDept.Read()
                Dim strDeptName As String = dtrDept("Dept_Desc").ToString
                Dim strDeptId As String = dtrDept("Dept_ID").ToString
                myDepartments.Add(New CascadingDropDownNameValue(strDeptName, strDeptId))
            End While
            Return myDepartments.ToArray
        End Function   
    End Class

    I've only posted the department method as in any case, without this one working, none of the others could ever really work.

    I've googled the error and mainly found that people had their issue resolved by adding the following:

    <System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService()> _
    I already had that so I moved on and found that sometimes it could be relative to the web.config file...

    the reason why I think this may be where i'm going wrong is because EVERYTHING up until now on our server was on ASP... So i'm the first to play with converting to .NET

    So far I've made some modifications but I have to admit that I am not 100% that I've done all that I should. That said, here is what I have as well:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    	        <add name="PROD" connectionString="File Name=C:\reporting_udl\web\accepted_www.udl;" />
    	       <compilation debug="true"/>

    		      description=".Net Framework Data Provider for SqlServer"
    		      type="System.Data.SqlClient.SqlClientFactory, System.Data,
    		      Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />
    		<validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration="false"/> 
    			<add name="ScriptModule" preCondition="integratedMode" type="System.Web.Handlers.ScriptModule, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/> 
    			<remove name="WebServiceHandlerFactory-Integrated" /> 
    			<add name="ScriptHandlerFactory" verb="*" path="*.asmx" preCondition="integratedMode" type="System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptHandlerFactory, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/> 
    			<add name="ScriptHandlerFactoryAppServices" verb="*" path="*_AppService.axd" preCondition="integratedMode" type="System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptHandlerFactory, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/> 
    			<add name="ScriptResource" preCondition="integratedMode" verb="GET,HEAD" path="ScriptResource.axd" type="System.Web.Handlers.ScriptResourceHandler, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" /> 
    Other details that may help:

    • I've written everything without the use of Visual Studio...
    • The files are located as follows:
    • Web.Config: D:\LOCALDEV\ (root)
    • AjaxToolkit: D:\LOCALDEV\BIN
    • Default.aspx: D:\LOCALDEV\reports\adjustment\Summary
    • Hierarchy.asmx: D:\LOCALDEV\reports\adjustment\Summary\WebService
    • The webservice on it's own works fine - Meaning if I open Hierarchy.asmx I get my methods listed.
    If anyone can tell me where I'm going wrong it would be appreciated!
