And we have a new release of Ajax Control Toolkit. I didn’t work on this one but there are some nice things in there nonetheless :)
Several people have reported seeing errors in their logs that seem to be due to requests such as this:
If you haven’t already and you are a .NET developer, please take a couple minutes and answer this survey, whether you use Ajax or not. There are a number of Ajax surveys around, but Simone’s is the only one that focuses on .NET developers.
A new version of the AJAX Control Toolkit is now available for download from the CodePlex website. It contains three new controls:
Microsoft Ajax has the interesting ability to combine more than one component onto a single element. In the previous talk, I alluded to this possibility and one of the commenters (Tiamat) asked me to show how this is done.
The full 83 minutes of my PDC talk are available on the Channel 9 web site. You can watch the session online (using Silverlight) or download the video in a number of formats. Slides and source code for the demo are also available.
Another talk you may be interested in is Stephen Walther's. Stephen did an amazing job explaining how jQuery and ASP.NET Ajax work and fit together. The talk is very accessible even if you have no prior knowledge of jQuery: http://channel9.msdn.com/pdc2008/PC31/.
Stephen Walther has a pretty cool post on using the new file-only version of the Ajax Control Toolkit from an MVC application:
UPDATE: the problem with Stephen is that he writes quite fast. So pretty much in the time it took me to link to his first post, he wrote a second one, this time on using the AutoComplete behavior:
This is an intermediary release that provides a version of the Toolkit that is built against the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. It contains a new control, MultiHandleSlider, built by Daniel Crenna (thanks, Daniel, you're the hero of this release) and integrates patches contributed by the community. A big thank you to all who contributed (see their names in the hall of fame).
The sample web site is not yet updated to this new release, this will be done in a couple of days. I will update this post once this is done.
In the very short term, we will provideWe are also providing a client-side only version of the toolkit, similar to the Microsoft Ajax Library, that enables the development of Toolkit-based applications that do not rely on server-side ASP.NET. This version can also be used in performance-intensive scenarios where resource-based scripts and resources are not desirable, or if you simply prefer to work with files.
Our top priority following this release is bug fixing in order to get back to a stable and low number of bugs. We also have a number of contributors working on new controls, following the priorities the community communicated us.
As usual, all feedback is very welcome.
UPDATE: the file-only version of the toolkit is now available from the release page. I also added a dll-only download for people who just want the executable and no source or sample code.
