Using jQuery with ASP.NET
jQuery is a compact and powerful JavaScript library that is quickly becoming one of the most popular client-side libraries. jQuery’s appeal lies in its compact implementation and flexible and elegant use of selectors to pick up document elements that can then be manipulated using jQuery’s flexible set of useful functions in a browser-independent way. From AJAX functionality, to easy browser independent DOM manipulation, to simple effects, this compact library provides many ways to make client scripting much easier. Additionally, a vast community of add-in authors have added hundreds of extremely useful and easy to use plug-ins that provide many useful features to common client-side tasks. In this session, I’ll demonstrate a host of features of jQuery as well as demonstrate how you can integrate this powerful client-side library with ASP.NET on the server. We’ll look at how to provide JSON services through ASP.NET in a couple of ways as well as looking into ways that you can integrate existing components and plug-ins as ASP.NET server controls with a little bit of work to provide ASP.NET-style interaction with jQuery.
