Script# Prototype from Nikhil#
Now this is some very cool stuff. Nikhil, the architect of Atlas, has released a prototype to create atlas / ajax apps in c# without writing javascript code. You can check the post and download some bits here. I haven't had time to play with it yet, but I will post a review when I do. I actually like writing javascript, but i will try anything that makes life easier when writing complex ajax apps.

Have fun!

XmlHttpRequest Debugging for IE#
I recently ran into this post from Julien Couvreur on his blog. He ported his XMLHttpRequest Debugging user script that works with firefox to IE. You can check out more about it here. I tried it out and it works pretty slick.

Over 50 Ajax Frameworks#
Wow, I had no idea there were so many ajax frameworks. Here is the list of 50 that I found here. I guess it makes sense since it is so new and everyone likes to have full control, so they write their own. I know I did also, but it is no where close to the quality to let anyone else use it.

Although I am slightly biased, my choice is Atlas.
I am now migrating all of my old ajax stuff to atlas. I have played with many frameworks, and Atlas is by far the most complete. It is a little more complicated, but also more powerful. It really is an extension of JavaScript and I predict will be the standard way to implement good practices ajax programming. Anyone wanting to get involved with ajax programming in 2.0 really needs to be using Atlas. Microsoft is adding some cool features and it will integrate right into the Visual Studio IDE. This is where the future is headed, so no need to learn frameworks that you will be porting from in the future.

Have fun!

Fix for gadget javascript error from localhost#
The other night I was doing a quick session on how to make gadgets using Atlas. I couldn't actually show the atlas way working because I was getting a javascript error of 'm_contentIE is undefined'. I had to resort to just the xml, js, and css files way the folks do it. The new atlas:Gadget control makes it so much easier. To get it work you have to add more trusted sites like *, * and localhost in internet explorer security settings. The * is what does it. Covers all current and future subdomains. This is only if you are testing from localhost as far as I know. Here is a post on it, that was shown to me during my session by Joe Healy. .
I thank him for showing me that, I was about ready to pull my hair out debugging the javascript code earlier that day getting ready for my session. Found out the reason I was able to get raw xml way working was because I Could set binding options inline = true. When using atlas:gadget you are stuck with the xml that is generating when calling page.aspx?gadget=true. I hope this helps at least one person trying to fix this problem.
