Well, ever since i”ve started working with ATLAS (I mean, AJAX extensions:) ,,)I”ve been trying to build a cool control which would let me upload files like gmail does. As most of you know by now, reading files from the browser in a way that works in all of them is not  an easy task. […]

Well, it”s true that i still haven”t seen everything, but this must be the first time I see MS officialy state that UpdatePanels aren”t really that good when you want to build a slick efficient AJAX page. if you still think i”m wrong when i  say that you should only use UpdatePanels if you”re lazy […]

Though i really don”t like Britney Spears, I must say that this is a good time for singing “oopss, i”ve did it again…”. This post is the result of another thread in the AJAX extensions forum. GQAdonis was really sure about the problem: ScriptLoader (the class used for loading script files) wasn”t working properly. I”m […]

Yesterday I saw a post on the AJAX discussion forums which stated that an extender stopped working after a partial postback. Since i”m a curious guy, i decided to take some time and investigate the code. The guy with the problem had a really simple sample that reproduced the problem (which is really cool since […]

In beta 2, xml-script is maintained in the value-added bits. So, in order to use it, you need to insert the client side script file needed to support its parsing and processing. If you”re using a simple HTML page, just drop the previewscript.js file on that page; if you”re using an ASP.NET page, then you can load […]

Today I”ve found another post on the AJAX discussion forums asking info about the “Cannot unregister UpdatePanel with ID XXX since it was not registered with the ScriptManager.This might occur if the UpdatePanel was removed from the control tree and latter added again”. This happens only in dynamic pages, when you have UpdatePanels added to […]

Short answer: because the internal WebServiceMethodData class is using a Dictionary<string, WebServiceParameterData> and is using the StringComparer.OrdinalIgnoreCase comparer which, as the name suggests, is responsible for performing a case insensitive comparison (in practise, this means that id equals ID, equals Id, etc). Special thanks to Garbin for pointing the obvious :,,) It”s important to note that this […]

As I”ve mentioned yesterday, I was having some problems with bridges. the problem was that every method call returned an error saying that a NullException was thrown. Well, after looking at the generated code from the parsing of the asbx file and doing some debugging, it was clear that the problem was happening in the […]

Today, only time for a couple of quick notes: types are now included into bridges by using the GenerateScriptTypeAttribute to include types in the client side (in the CTP, you”d use the <xmlinclude> element i”m having problems when returning complex object back to the server to make a bridge method call (it looks like a […]

During beta 1, we could easily load external scripts by adding a <script> element to the page, by using the ClientScriptManager and even by using the ScriptReference element in order to add references to external Javascript files. Beta 2 introduces some changes when you load a script file through a ScriptElement entry. The docs mention this […]

I already had a post prepared on how to set the focus on a control after an async postback. Unfortunately, it went directly to “garbadge” since now it”s all too easy: we can do that by using the new SetFocusmethod exposed by the ScriptManager class. Here”s a demo page that does just that!   <%@ […]

I”m glad to see that Dino has changed his mind regarding AJAX extensions beta 1. I”m also glad to see him acknowledge that his first post on it just the result of frustration regarding the changes made to beta 1. Everyone makes mistakes. Not everyone is able to say or even admit that they”re wrong. It […]

Mike Weerasinghe has made a good question regarding my previous post about error handling. Mike says that he”s handling errors by using a module which handles the HttpApplication error event. Unfortunately, this will stop working when you use AJAX extensions because the ScriptManager control will handle the error and automatically return a response to the client stopping […]

Like the previous CTPs, the current beta version introduces 2 “usable” triggers: AsyncPostBackTrigger and PostBackTrigger. I call them “usable” because they”re the leaves of the hierarchical tree defined by the AJAX extensions on the server side. As you can infer by their names, the AsyncPostBackTrigger is responsible for starting an async postback while the PostBackTrigger manages […]

UpdatePanel has always given us some sort of error handling during partial postbacks (or, if you want to use the new official term, async postbacks). In previous CTPs, you could handle a page error event and perform your own error handling (which normally consisted in some form of logging). The problem previous versions had was […]
