    The Ajax Papers: Part III

    Part III: Why, When, and What Download the easy to read PDF version (includes Trivia not in online version)In parts one and two in this series on Ajax we examined in detail how Ajax communication works and how JavaScript is used to update the page after an Ajax callback. We looked at some of the specific ways RadAjax and ASP.NET AJAX handle Ajax operations and, in short, removed (or at least greatly reduced) the mystery of how these frameworks do their magic. In this installment, we’ll move past the “how” and “where” of Ajax and start to look at the “why”, “when”, and “what” (I don’t think we have...

We learned that Ajax communication (in its most basic form) only takes a few lines of JavaScript to work. If Ajax is so easy, what’s all the fuss about Ajax being so hard? Even though Ajax in its purest sense just defines a method for communicating asynchronously with the server, it is relatively useless unless you do something with the information returned from the server. That “something” usually means that you need to...

    The Ajax Papers: Part I

    The Ajax Papers Part I: The Intro and the Basics Download formatted PDF version for easy readingAjax. We’ve all heard of it and most of us have already started to use it. Many of us (“us” being ASP.NET developers) probably decided to use Ajax because Telerik’s radAjax component made it very easy to add Ajax to our existing projects. We figured what the heck? Telerik makes it easy to add Ajax to my site and the boss will love to see the Ajax buzz word in my list of accomplishments.
