Controls that are not compatible with UpdatePanel controls

We all know that update panel is one of the wonder of Ajax and really gave a very good first impression on everyone. After mounts past some problems are starting to popup as some of the controls are not compatible with update panel. 

We might need to use other tricks to achieve required feature while using the bellow controls. I have done a little research on Update panel and found that bellow listed controls are not compatible with UpdatePanel.

The following ASP.NET controls are not compatible with partial-page updates, and are therefore not designed to work inside an UpdatePanel control:

  • Treeview
  • Menu control
  • FileUpload
  • HtmlInputFile.
  • GridView
  • DetailsView
  • Login
  • PasswordRecovery
  • ChangePassword
  • CreateUserWizard    
  • The Substitution control

We might skip Updatepanel or use some kind of trick to overcome the problems with the above controls while using Updatepanel.
