Hi

I am wondering if it would be wise for me to read an Ajax book.

Currently I am using Asp.net with C# and Jquery with a Sql sever 2005 database.

I done basically all the JavaScript stuff on my site and now it is time to move onto the Ajax stuff.

What I am planning to do in Ajax.

Send results to the server(C#)
- I have some values in the checkbox I want to send to the database and save(of course sending it without leaving the page).
- I have some other values(that keep track of how many thing they got wrong,correct and etc).

I have some receiving stuff but I am not sure if they will need to be ajax at this time.

So do I have to read a whole book on this? Or can I just read the w3c schools stuff on ajax and the chapter from jquery in action?

If I need a book what book is good(that hopefully talks about using C#). I am having a hard time trying to find an ajax book that talks about general ajax with C# and not using the script manager.

Or is there any good tutorial sites I could use.

thanks.

Well you could have just use the Ajax stuff built into the .NET framework and not had a lot of issues. The .NET Ajax tool kit has a lot of components that you might be able to use.

If you want to go on your own it is not that bad.

For what you need to do, I would think that reading an article such as this to ground you in Ajax fundamentals, as well as the jQuery in Action chapter should be sufficient. (Of course, if you wanted to buy Ajax in Practice, I wouldn't stop you ).

The fact that you're using C# and ASP.NET on the server is almost moot. As long as you know how to use that to format the response that you'd like, the choice of server-side tool is pretty much irrelevant.
