ASP.NET AJAX JavaScript Class Browser

Updated on 2//22/2007:
New version available here: ASP.NET AJAX JavaScript Class Browser (take 3) 

As part of an exercise in app building, as well as an exercise in doing useful stuff, I wrote a class browser to inspect the ASP.NET AJAX client libraries. It's a simple ASP.NET-based app, though most of the code is client-side. I wrote a simple reflection layer (inspired in part by the .NET Reflection classes) and then a UI layer that uses it. It's about 1,000 lines of JavaScript and no managed code at all.

To run it, download the attachment and place it in a virtual directory on your web server. You'll need to have ASP.NET AJAX Beta 2 installed on the machine.

Feedback and bug reports are always welcome. Or, of course, just enjoy the app itself!

Really cool one.

I wish you could add the classes in the futures CTP to the list too, as it's the thing that has no good documentation right now.

Can this be added somehow to the existing bits?

It would be very useful if you could just point this app to a js file that was written using microsofts client side framework and reflect upon it.
