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.
