If you receive the WebForms UnobtrusiveValidationMode requires a ScriptResourceMapping for 'jquery' error, put the following lines of code in the Appliction_Start method in the Global.asax.cs file

        protected void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            string jqueryVersion = "1.8.0";

            System.Web.UI.ScriptManager.ScriptResourceMapping.AddDefinition("jquery", 
                                                new System.Web.UI.ScriptResourceDefinition
            {
                Path = "~/Scripts/jquery-" + jqueryVersion + ".min.js",
                DebugPath = "~/Scripts/jquery-" + jqueryVersion + ".js",
                CdnPath = "http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jQuery/jquery" + jqueryVersion + ".min.js",
                CdnDebugPath = "http://ajax.aspnetcdn.com/ajax/jQuery/jquery" + jqueryVersion + ".js",
                CdnSupportsSecureConnection = true,
                LoadSuccessExpression = "Window.jquery"
                
            });
        }


The above lines of code registers the jQuery library with the ScripManager. This will get rid of the error, you can do the same this with jQueryUI library.
