Ajax.NET and HtmlControls, Request Cache, Namespace Mappings,...

I have released the next version of the free Ajax.NET Library. You can download the latest version at http://ajax.schwarz-interactive.de/.

The new features are:

  • System.Web.UI.HtmlControls support as arguments and return value to support client control updates without postbacks
  • System.Guid converter
  • Cache Ajax.NET request and response using [Ajax.AjaxMethod(seconds)]
  • Configure the virtual filename for the Ajax.NET JavaScript files. In old version you could see the Namespace, Classname and Assemblyname.

The StackOverflowException I got from several developers was the missing support of System.Guid. This should now work, sorry!

There are new examples available at http://ajax.schwarz-interactive.de/ for HtmlControls, Caching and the Namespace Mapping. You have to scroll to the bottom of the page!

Updated: some other small bugfixes for a new version number: version
- fixed this.url in class.ashx if server is in root folder
- fixed byte[], StackOverflowException
- changed interface IAjaxObjectConverter, added property ClientScriptIdentifier to remove multiple client scripts

    I think there is a similar issue with the timestamp data type from SQL. I use the timestamp in many tables and noticed that I get a StackOverflowException.

    Forgot to put in the last post... YOU ROCK! What you have accomplished is very impressive. I am really excited to start making my web applications a lot more user friendly. :-D

    Proud to see that you've included my implementation of supporting HtmlControls. That's my contribution to this very impressive library!

    Go on!

    It would perfect if it supported HtmlGenericControl also then it be super flexible. You'll be able to add DIVs and SPANs with innerHtml and innerText.

    Has anybody been able to use Web User Controls? I have a page with diferent user controls. Each user controls has several input fields, checkboxes and dropdown lists. I am using AJAX.NET to make the dropdownlists and checkboxes update data on the screen without having to do a postback to the server when the user changes a value. My problem is AJAX does not initialize these controls and every reference to a dropdownlist or checkbox returns NULL.

    Mark E. had the same problem on May ( see "Delay on next Ajax.NET Release") and apparently he solved it, but unfortunately he did not share how he did it.

    Can you please let us know how to deal with this issue? Mark? Michael?

    Thanks and congratulations on such a great product!
