Asp .Net Ajax Toolkit and ScriptManager
Asp .Net has its own Ajax Controls. There are main components of Asp .Net Ajax controls which are ScriptManager, UpdatePanel, and Triggers. ScriptManager is a must have controls to enable Ajax.
Those controls are server control by attribute runat=”server”. So that Ajax submission will be done with .Net powerfull script and also VS intellisense. Server side script in Asp .Net is easy to manage. Has relatively less lines of code than any technology by help of so many .Net references that available. OOp implements automatically so that developer can make their best practice on OOP design.
Those reasons make general and Ajax Server side script on Asp .Net leads on easiness and fast for application development.
Ajax makes rich web application. Users don’t have to reload page in order to get response from server. Asynchronous proccess is a key to Ajax.
With Asp .Net Ajax building ajax enabled web app become easier. Built in controls like ScriptManager, UpdatePanel, ContentTemplate, Triggers, and UpdateProgress
In earlier post (Introduction to Asp .Net-1) I have given an example on how to use Built in Asp .Net Controls. In this post I will give example of UpdateProgress Control.
When we run on long query process or file upload/download operation or some complex calculation, we need to inform users about progress status since the page is not reloading.
Asp .Net Built in UpdateProgress Control informs progress to users asynchronously. It has ProgressTemplate Tag inside Control’s Tag. We can write progress information inside ProgressTemplate Tag. Continue reading
AJAX is not a new programming language, but a new way to use existing standards.
AJAX is the art of exchanging data with a server, and update parts of a web page – without reloading the whole page.”
Ajax is a web client script so it can work with all server side scripting. Asp .Net with Visual Studio 2010 provides easy way to create Ajax application.
Some of main Component of Ajax are ScriptManager, UpdatePanel, ContentTemplate, Triggers. Continue reading
