What is ASP.NET AJAX? ASP.NET is a part of the Microsoft .NET Framework that enables Web developers to create Web sites and corporate Intranet sites more easily. ASP.NET can be viewed as the next step on from the Microsoft ASP technology where Microsoft first provided Active Server Page (ASP) technology to allow programmers to create Web apps. ASP.NET is a progression from ASP, (initially it was known as ASP+, before being named ASP.NET), in that it is part of the .NET Framework and hence applications built with it are easier to use and maintain, as they are based on the solid .NET Framework component model. Microsoft added AJAX capabilities to the basic ASP.NET technology to help the performance and the user experience of ASP.NET based apps.
What is an ASP.NET AJAX control? An ASP.NET AJAX control is a visual reusable software component that can be added and integrated into a Web page by an ASP.NET AJAX developer. This ASP.NET AJAX component has a visual interface and can be used to enter data, display data, visualize data or allow the user to control the ASP.NET AJAX application in some way.
In this ASP.NET AJAX controls gallery you will find a wide variety of ASP.NET AJAX custom controls that you can download, review, try and buy for your app. For example, in the gallery you will find a ASP.NET AJAX resizer control that provides resizing capabilities for other Web controls, such as Microsoft's Panel and also HTML div and table elements. This ASP.NET AJAX control therefore allows your users to resize the Web page proportionally inside their browser. There is also a wide selection of ASP.NET AJAX datagrids and ASP.NET charting controls that will allow you to create data input and output apps, as well as extensive ASP.NET AJAX gauges & ASP.NET AJAX dials that will allow you create great ASP.NET AJAX dashboards or instrumentation panel mash ups for your BI ("biz intel") users.
Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 (MS VB 2008) allows Visual Basic programmers to create Windows applications for their end users fast. Visual Basic developers can extend the standard functionality available inside the Visual Basic 2008 IDE with a variety of VB 2008 add-ins and VB 2008 tools. The extensibility of Visual Basic software is one of the main reasons it has proved to be so popular with .NET developers, as Visual Basic software engineers can find VB 2008 downloads from other companies or other developers to act as a VB extension to their Visual Basic 2008 IDE.
The versatility of Visual Basic also extends to various forms of Visual Basic 2008 compatible software components. VB 2008 controls can be used to create feature rich Visual Basic user interfaces on forms and Web pages for Visual Basic apps. These Visual Basic UI controls are augmented by non-visual Visual Basic 2008 components that can help a developer add many hidden features to Visual Basic 2008 applications running in the background. These non-visual components are commonly available as a VB 2008 library, Visual Basic 2008 Class library or as a Visual Basic 2008 component.
An example of a visual VB 2008 ASP.NET control is ASPxGridView and Editors Suite by DevExpress, a VB 2008 compatible grid control for ASP.NET allowing you to adding the Outlook style or look and feel to your latest Visual Basic 2008 ASP.NET project.
