ASP.NET MVC Tip #45 – Use Client View Data
In this tip, I explore one approach to building Ajax applications with ASP.NET MVC. I show how you can use view data when building Ajax applications with ASP.NET MVC in the same way as you would use view data when building server-side application. I demonstrate how to create a custom HTML Helper that renders client view data.

In this series of tutorials, I build an entire ASP.NET MVC application from start to finish. In this entry, I add a Silverlight file upload control to make it easier to upload multiple media files.
ASP.NET MVC Application Building: Forums #6 – Ajax
In this series of blog entries, I build an entire MVC Forums application from start to finish. In this entry, I create the user interface for the Forums application by taking advantage of ASP.NET AJAX client templates. I build the entire user interface for the Forums application with a single view and perform all updates to the view with Ajax calls.
