ASP.NET 4.0 AJAX and jQuery Using VB.NET 2010

AJAX has brought a rich inactive content to web pages and web applications. The newest vision of Visual Studio, Visual Studio 2010 brings many plus to creating AJAX web content. This course covers some of the basics for using AJAX, dealing with server aide and client AJAX controls. Creating content rich AJAX applications will show how to use the UpdatePanel controls, page methods and other items. The AJAX Control Toolkit section will explain the controls, extenders, and script manager. The next part of the course explores the jQuery Library, which Microsoft has fully embraced as its client-side JavaScript library. You’ll learn about the library and how to put it to use, including how to write effective selectors to create matched sets of elements.

Then you’ll learn how to bring a page alive with jQuery, using features like changing page content, animating elements on the page, and using the jQuery UI Library for even more effects. One of the original motivations for jQuery was to support AJAX, and the library includes rich support for asynchronous calls to the server. You’ll also learn how to make use of various other jQuery extensions and see how to build your own plugin.
