UpdatePanel PDF updated for ASP.NET Ajax 1.0

ASP.NET AJAX UpdatePanel Control: Add Ajax interactivity to your ASP.NET 2.0 web pagesThe PDF document that I wrote with Matt Gibbs a while ago on UpdatePanel is now up to date and in sync with the RTW (Release to Web) version of the ASP.NET 2.0 Ajax Extensions. It's a 60 page document that teaches how to use the UpdatePanel control to incrementally "ajaxify" an ASP.NET 2.0 web site. The booklet comes with downloadable code samples that are immediately applicable in the real world.

The update contains a few new sections that cover the features that appeared since the last revision such as the client-side events for partial updates.

Of course, if you bought it before this final version, O'Reilly offers the current version for free.

  • Stupid question. I bought the original version months ago. How do I get the final version for free? I went to My Account on the O'Reilly site and it still shows the old version under Electronic Media. I downloaded again just to check, and sure enough, it's the old version. I added the new version to my cart to see if a re-purchase would be smart enough to price out at $0.00 but no go. I can't figure out how to do it.


  • Ron: I'm asking O'Reilly. I'll post their answer here.

  • Try downloading it again. I just re-downloaded the PDF and it's stamped March 13, 2007.

  • Thanks Bertrand just purchased a copy of it.

  • Got a copy too, looking forward to read it. Hope it gives you some motivation to write some more great posts.

  • We're looking into the problem and hope to have an answer today. It may be a timing issue (the new version was posted yesterday), so it would be worth trying to download it again.

  • I bought the booklet today and on page 17 it's still using the atlas tag instead of asp... no biggie...

  • Kris: I'm asking my editor. What happens when you follow that link: http://safari.oreilly.com/0596527470 (found from the PDF page)?
