  • Blog Post: JavaScript Architecture

    No, that isn’t meant to be an oxymoron. But something I’ve noticed recently is that people’s approach to JavaScript seems to be diverging down two common paths. This blog post is designed to encourage you to adopt the one you probably aren’t planning to adopt right now! The approaches...

  • Blog Post: Using ASP.NET MVC and jQuery to create confirmation prompts

    Having coded up samples several times showing how to add confirmation prompts to links on a web page I figured I’d post it here so that I can simply grab it next time round! My colleague Simon Ince & I put together a Ramp Up session for ASP.NET MVC 2. As part of the Ajax module we cover...
  • Blog Post: jQuery.validate and Html.ValidationSummary playing nice together

    A customer recently asked me how to get MVC with the MVC Futures project’s MicrosoftMvcJQueryValidation.js adapter file to play nicely with the Validation Summary HTML helper. It turns out that this functionality isn’t built into the adapter script file. They also pointed me at this post by Soe Tun that...
  • Blog Post: Client Script Patterns: Predictive Fetch

    Why do you write JavaScript? It's probably for one of two major reasons – Responsiveness or Richness. Richness we know about – it's the flying, sliding, flashing, and sometimes annoying UI features we see J But Responsiveness is much less tangible – it's about how an application feels to use. Does it...
  • Blog Post: jQuery + MVC = Progressive Enhancement

    If you write a lot of JavaScript, you really should consider adopting Progressive Enhancement as the standard way that you work. This is basically whereby you write a web site without script, and then enhance it with script. The result is a site that does not rely on JavaScript (and hence works with...
  • Blog Post: JavaScript Prototypes versus Closures

    Recently I've been coordinating and authoring some JavaScript best practice documentation, and one area that came up which I thought was interesting was the reason for using prototypes instead of constructors to define JavaScript class members. Thanks to Bertrand , Dave , and Stephen for assistance with...
  • Blog Post: A JavaScript Event Bus

    I was working on a Proof of Concept recently that needed to support loosely coupled Ajax components. The idea is a common one – components need to be able to hook into an existing page without detailed knowledge of how the page works, and immediately start responding appropriately. This is basically...
  • Blog Post: Closure Exposure: A JavaScript Scope Trick

    You might have seen some JavaScript is wrapped up in funny looking functions, such as this screen shot, and wondered why – even parts of the Microsoft Ajax Framework previews use such an approach. At first it can seem very strange, but don't worry – it's actually very simple, and equally useful. ...
  • Blog Post: Enforcing Unobtrusive JavaScript

    Unobtrusive JavaScript is a concept that’s been around for quite a while, but it’s now finally starting to make its way into the mainstream. The basic idea is that you should separate your JavaScript from your HTML – so instead of; < a href ="Default.aspx" onclick ="alert('Sorry, that is unavailable...
  • Blog Post: Loading Scripts Late

    On the ASP.NET ScriptManager control there is a useful little property that very few people have heard of called “LoadScriptsBeforeUI”. What does it do? Well, simply put... · When “true” (the default) it will render <script> tags for each script you reference using the ScriptManager at the...
  • Blog Post: Executing JavaScript after a Partial Render

    I had a fun day debugging some ASP.NET plus jQuery this week, and came across something I’ve known is possible for some time, but that I’ve never actually needed to do... and that was to ensure a bit of JavaScript ran once an UpdatePanel had refreshed as part of a partial render. It turns out that...
