The web page with the Gantt chart will have other content built from calls to the DB layer. We want this and any associated Viewstate left completely alone and we don't want to do any normal PostBack processing during the Ajax call such has hitting the DB layer again for anything other than Gantt related issues.
The Ajax call will be initiated by Gantt chart client method using RadAjaxManager.ajaxRequest(AjaxDataToServer).
- During the server side processing, should we use RadAjaxManager.isAjaxRequest to pretty much prevent any other processing not needed for the Ajax call?
- In reading the Telerik documentation, it appears that the XML response due to the Ajax call is all that is returned to the client and not any of the normal page content that is normally built during a Page Cycle. Is this correct and with an overview type of reply, how is the normal page content suppressed? Is there a more formal and descriptive document that gives a more detailed explanation other than what I have seen under the help documentation entitled "What is AJAX?"
BTW - I am absolutely delighted with your product
Have a nice day,
