Updated Toolkit (for AJAX Beta 2) available on CodePlex

We've released an updated version of the Toolkit on CodePlex to match ASP.NET AJAX Beta 2 , which launched yesterday. Not many changes here other than what was necessary for compat. We fixed a few other bugs that people were running into as well (ModalPopup positioning issue, handling of behavior ID in Dynamic Populate base, etc.). Note that Beta two fixes the "Extenders don't work in Templates" issue that was causing everyone so much pain, as well. Read More...

A great day for shipping…

Today two of the products I have spent a bunch of time ship! .NET Framework 3.0 ships! With the 3.0 version of the .NET Framework I can look forward to the day when every application will offer compelling user experiences that that fuse the seamless, immersive nature of TV with the power and productivity of windows applications. These applications will communicate securely and reliable between each other and to a huge array of cloud services offered by a variety of vendors. The business logic for these applications that spans client, server and data tier are no longer locked in code but is accessible, flexible and easily understood by information workers. Finally, I can safely log on to a wide range of services without having to remember any...

ASP.NET AJAX beta 2 is released

Well, just a few short weeks and some very late nights after the first beta was released, we have released beta 2 of ASP.NET AJAX. There are three different pieces you can download: 1) ASP.NET AJAX Extensions beta 2 is available here . This is the core part of the ASP.NET AJAX offering and required for the other parts to work. It includes the Microsoft AJAX Library which is the JavaScript libraries that can be used in the browser for more easily writing maintainable object-oriented JavaScript code that interacts with the DOM. The Microsoft AJAX Library can be downloaded separately as a zip file here. 2) The ASP.NET AJAX 2.0 Futures November CTP is available here . This naming is a little different than what we have used before. This is a set...

DOM events in the Microsoft AJAX Library

In previous CTPs, the client-side DOM event model was the IE model. You would use attachEvent and get the event data from window.event. In other words, we had just implemented the IE model in Firefox and Safari. This didn't fly as well as we expected for a number of reasons. For instance, it wasn't very well received from a philosophical point of view: making standards-compliant browsers behave like the one non-compliant browser was interpreted by some as a malicious attempt by the Evil Empire to undermine the standardization of the Web by enforcing proprietary APIs . It wasn't. It just seemed at the time like a smart way to build cross-browser compatibility and the reason we did it this way and not the other way around is that both Safari and...

Welcome to TechEd Europe

I just got in last night into Barcelona for TechEd Europe .. One thing I love about my job is that I get to span the full range of application space supported by the .NET Framework… As such I think I am the only speaker at Teched doing a server based talk and a smart client talk ! Should be fun to see how well I bridge those ;-) The first one is all about the developer designer interaction… For the vast majority of this talk Sam and build up a site from scratch. He plays the role of the designer, and I play the role of the developer… Sam starts with a couple of “comps” (static images of what the site should look like) then uses Expression Web to build up a very compelling site layout and design. Then I use the magic of ASP.NET AJAX to make the...

Dynamic languages in ASP.NET

David Ebbo wrote a very interesting article that explains in great details how they gave ASP.NET the ability to be driven by dynamic languages. The compilation system, on which David worked for a few years, is explained, as well as why it doesn't apply to dynamic languages. Then he goes on to explain how they were able to integrate IronPython anyway, taking advantage of an existing feature, no-compile pages. One of the surprising things is that dynamic languages will actually perform better for a whole class of applications. Check it out: http://www.asp.net/ironpython/WhitePaper.aspx?tabid=62 Read More...
