We've collected the slides and content from our most recent Roadshow and have made them available at:

Covered sessions are:

  1. XML and the Database
  2. What's New from the Patterns & Practices Group?
  3. Silverlight
  4. ASP.NET AJAX - Going Deeper

I'm on the road at the moment, but keep an eye out for follow-up posts with resources relating to questions I received during the various days.


  • Chris: The AJAX demo seemed really slick but upon trying to put up a progress animated GIF on first load of the page it did not seem as easy as the demo you had.  Can you put up a link to the demo code so that we can compare what we are doing to what you did?   thanks  I did not find the demo code in the Ajax roadshow content.  


  • Hi Dave,

    Here's he boiled-down essence of what you need to have for the UpdateProgress control:

    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server" UpdateMode="Conditional">


    <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClick="Button1_Click" Text="Button" />



    <asp:UpdateProgress ID="UpdateProgress1" runat="server" AssociatedUpdatePanelID="UpdatePanel1">


    <span>Please wait...</span>.



    I recommend you take a look at this "How To" video which shows the process of working with UpdateProgress controls:
