Atlas - anyone have success using Atlas (ASP.NET AJAX) with The-Beer-House code?
I tried to add Atlas (ASP.NET AJAX) but I got lots of compile errors and finally gave up.

It's pretty cool stuff! Your easiest option is to get Telerik's RAD controls because they are great at adding AJAX to an existing site. I can easily sell the Telerik suite to any developer after a short demo of what it can do - it's really fantasic. And I'm not connected to that company, by the way.

Short of a commercial solution, you'll have to be very familair with the particular page you're working on, and with the components like UpdatePanel. Knowing a little JavaScript is also a good thing, of course.

There's a lot of good training videos at the MS AJAX site:
http://ajax.asp.net

And this site has inexpensive videos:
http://www.learnvisualstudio.net

There's also a lot of good MSDN Webcasts on this subject - the next one being Wednesday, Nov 29, if memory serves.

Wrox also has a great book in the works - several, actually! This is a very hot area and it will change the lives of developers and users.

ASP.NET 3.0 will revolve around ASP.NET AJAX (formerly called Atlas). Now is the time to start learning about it - the first official release is expected by the end of the year.

I agree with implementing AJAX through the telerik tools. I'm doing just that with my opera site based on The Beer House Starter Kit. First I have to get the damn thing deployed.

I intend to use r.a.d.Grid and r.a.d.combo with AJAX.

I did.

I had some errors at first but then I referred back to Imal's book, Beginning Asp.net 3.5, and saw that I needed to add a ContentTemplate to the page I wanted to use it on that used a gridview and search box.

In case anyone wants to know:
On my new aspx page that I added for a search of my products using a gridview control to display the results, I put it near the top as so:


<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" Runat="Server">
<asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
<ContentTemplate> //(I had to add this to make it work)
Searching: <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Label" ></asp:Label>

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333"
GridLines="None">
<RowStyle BackColor="#F7F6F3" ForeColor="#333333" />
....

Then in Master.Template, I put the script manager right below the first form id as so:

<form id="Main" runat="server">
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">

Now I'm trying to figure out how to use auto complete on my text box control. I know how to use it on a text box control alone, but not yet when a grid is added to the mix.
