  • AJAX Control Toolkit Update September 2007

    The AJAX Control Toolkit just released a new version for September 2007.  You can get version 10920 now from CodePlex.  This release is meant to improve the stability and quality of the controls and includes a bunch of fixes both at the general and control-specific level.  There are no new controls in this release.  You can view live demos of the toolkit controls on the AJAX Control Toolkit Sample Site. more

  • FIX Request format is unrecognized for URL unexpectedly ending in

    Adding a new web service to an application today so that I can delay loading some web user controls and ran into this 500 Error when calling the web service:Request format is unrecognized for URL unexpectedly ending in /GetHtmlFound this KB article with the fix:Add the following to web.config since GET and POST are disabled by default in ASP.NET 2.0 and greater:<configuration> <system.web> <webServices> <protocols> <add name="HttpGet"/> <add name="HttpPost"/> </protocols> </webServices> </system.web> </configuration>I'd forgotten this little detail... more

  • Microsoft Health Common User Interface

    I recently heard about a set of controls that is being made freely available via CodePlex with the goal of improving the usability and consistency of medical software applications.  The Microsoft Health Common User Interface (CUI) includes a suite of rich controls and guidance for building user interfaces that follow a standard approach to user interface design.  The CodePlex Project for MSCUI includes the controls library.  The controls are freely available and open source, so they provide a great value beyond just health care applications, since they include commonly required items like a DateInputBox and a TimeInputBox.  The controls are available as both WebForms and … more

  • Wait for ASP.NET AJAX Book Finally Over

    The wait for Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX is finally over.  The folks who camped outside of bookstores all night to be the first ones to own these beauties were  rewarded today.  Shortages were reported in some parts of the country as mobs of excited .NET developers made the iPhone launch seem like just another over-hyped gadget for sale.  You can learn more about the book online here.   Fortunately, as with the iPhone before it, supplies of this must-have technical bible have not run out.  Even if you were unwilling to pay some teenager to wait in line for your copy (assuming your time was too valuable to waste waiting in line yourself), you can still find … more

  • ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 Released Today

    Today, Microsoft released ASP.NET AJAX 1.0.  You can download it, as well as the latest AJAX Control Toolkit and Futures January CTP, from  Kudos to the ASP.NET team for making this happen!  I know a lot of web applications have been waiting for this day to go live with their AJAX implementations, including several of my own projects which should be upgraded in the next day or two. The ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit includes the following new controls: AutoComplete: The much-requested control that provides suggestions to complete input typed in a textbox Calendar: Client-side calendar control MaskedEdit: Control to enforce input entered into a text box is … more

  • History of ASP.NET AJAX

    As we approach the long-awaited RTM (or RTW – Release to Web) of ASP.NET AJAX (formerly “Atlas”), here’s a brief history of the project: June 2005 – Development on what would become “Atlas” begins.  Most of the ASP.NET team is focused on delivering ASP.NET 2.0 and VS 2005, however, so the initial team is pretty small. October 2005 – First Atlas Community Tech Preview (CTP) is released. November 2005 – VS2005 and ASP.NET 2.0 ship.  More Microsoft team resources available for “Atlas” work. December 2005 – The UpdatePanel, probably the most important control in ASP.NET AJAX apart from the ScriptManager, debuts in … more

  • MIX07 Registration Open

    I’m planning on attending MIX this year – last year I had to miss out due to an earlier speaking commitment.  This year’s event will be held at the Venetian in Las Vegas.  Here’s some more info: Registration opened today the Microsoft MIX07.

This is a great opportunity to dive deeper into … more

  • WebDevHelper Now Has Atlas Support

    Nikhil has updated his WebDevHelper utility to include direct support for Atlas.  His original WebDevHelper is a nice plug-in for the browser that provides a lot of similar functionality to the FireFox development toolbar combined with the Fiddler utility.  His new update includes some nice parsing features that make it much easier to see what is being passed on the wire for MSAJAX UpdatePanels and similar controls.  Check it out. more

  • SimpleCMS Updated For Microsoft AJAX Beta just published a new version of SimpleCMS which now uses the current Beta of Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX.  Download it, check it out, and report any bugs you may find in the forum.  Kudos to Brendan for getting this ready so quickly. more

  • ComponentArt Atlas Controls

    ComponentArt just released a version of their Web.UI suite, which is built for ASP.NET AJAX (aka “Atlas”).  Web.UI 2006.2 for ASP.NET AJAX is “the most advanced AJAX framework available.  ComponentArt Web.UI for ASP.NET AJAX is the first commercial control suite designed to fully utilize this new framework.” I haven’t had a chance to do more than view the demos but they look pretty slick.  The line between thin and thick clients is really blurring quite a bit now that we’re starting to get some serious client-side APIs for the web, and controls from third parties like ComponentArt do a great job of lowering the bar for how much a developer … more

  • Microsoft Shrugs Off Atlas Name

    Scott Guthrie today announced that the "Atlas" code name for the ASP.NET team's rich client framework and set of server controls and JavaScript extensions will be retired and replaced with not one, but three separate names:As part of releasing “Atlas”, we have also finally locked on an official set of product names that we will begin using moving forward. What was formerly called “Atlas” will now have a few names: 1) The client-side “Atlas” javascript library is going to be called the Microsoft AJAX Library. This will work with any browser, and also support any backend web server (read these blog posts to see how to run it on PHP and … more
