Method Error 500/12031 In Ajax CascadingDropdown

If you are getting Method Error 500 or 12031 In Ajax CascadingDropdown, than you may have missed to include below mentioned line of code in code behind of your asmx (webservice) file

Add this line in webservice's code behind


It should look like this

[WebService(Namespace = "")]
[WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
public class CascadingDropDown : System.Web.Services.WebService {

It should fix the error
This also occurs if there is any error in your sql statements or webservice code, you need to check them as well
