  • Blog Post: Search autocomplete with ASP.NET AJAX Extensions

    I am working on a rich content app for one of my talks at TechEd Europe and I thought it would be a good idea to implement a search box with an autocomplete of the past search quires. The intuition here is that the changes are someone else has searched for the same thing you are searching for, so past...

  • Blog Post: From Atlas to the ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX Extensions

    As you saw from ScottGu’s blog, we gave Atlas an official name and, in response to strong customer feedback, have it on a plan to ship 1.0 around the end of the year on top of VS2005 and ASP.NET 2.0. The team is super focused on this goal and I am very pumped to be able to deliver it!

  • Blog Post: "Atlas" Control Toolkit now available

    One of the things that I really love about Atlas is that it offers a framework approach to ajax style development.
