Building Interactive User Interfaces with Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX: Retrieving Server-Side Data Using Web Services

Microsoft’s ASP.NET AJAX framework offers two models for developing interactive web applications: client-centric and server-centric. With the server-centric model, developers use the standard ASP.NET controls – the GridView, Buttons, TextBoxes, and so forth – but place them within an UpdatePanel control . The UpdatePanel control automatically converts normal postbacks to partial page postbacks and seamlessly updates the page’s display with any modifications made by server-side code. On the other hand, with the client-centric model the developer is responsible for writing the JavaScript that performs any asynchronous requests to the server, as well as the script that updates the page on response. The server-centric model is easier to use and more familiar to developers who have a solid background with ASP.NET controls, but who are not as comfortable with JavaScript and HTML. However, that ease of use comes at a cost: the server-centric model shuttles a substantial amount of data between the client and server on each partial page postback. In short, the UpdatePanel sends the page’s view state to the server on a partial page postback and receives this (perhaps modified) view state back in response, regardless of whether the view state is needed to perform the server-side logic

Updates to the TextBox Word / Character Counter Control

When storing user-supplied text data into a database, it is essential that the length of the user’s input does not exceed the size of the corresponding database table field. To ensure that a user’s input is within the legal bounds, you can: set the TextBox control’s MaxLength property (although this does not work for multi-line textboxes); use a validation control, such as my TextBoxLengthValidator control or a RegularExpressionValidator; use server-side code to check the Length property of the string before storing it in the database; or some combination of the above. The problem with these solutions is that they are not very interactive. The user doesn’t know how close she is to hitting the maximum number of characters. In October 2007 I created a custom ASP.NET server control that uses JavaScript to interactively display the number of characters and/or words a user has typed into a textbox, and wrote about it in an article titled Creating a TextBox Word / Character Counter Control . In the TextBoxCounter control’s initial implementation is simply reported how many words or characters the user had entered. Because this control is most useful in scenarios where there is a limit to the number of characters or words allowed, a natural enhancement would be to allow the page developer to specify a maximum number of characters or words allowed. With this information, the control could be updated to show how many characters or words remain.
