WhatIWantMost: !Always(AJAX.IsTheAnswer)

Proper use of AJAX can be good for a web application when it helps reduce clutter by doing away with unnecessary postbacks and allowing the user to avoid the scenic route of visiting several other pages only to return to the page he/she was...


WhatIWantMost: More ASP.NET AJAX fun

Rather than focus on fixing the AJAX things that are still broken because of the RTM release tonight, I chose to jump even further into the abyss by adding even more AJAX-based controls to the page. This time it is a search results box that pops...


WhatIWantMost: ASP.NET AJAX RTM broke my UpdatePanel

A few days ago I noticed that something was amiss with the My Wishlist page of the WhatIWantMost.com site. At the time I was working on something else so I ignored it and I returned this evening to take a closer look. I have these floating divs...


WhatIWantMost: The ProductSearch Component

WhatIWantMost: Url Rewriting

I made a goof in my last post. I originally wrote that I was using UrlRewriter.net, when in actuality I am using UrlRewritingNet.UrlRewrite. Because of the similarities in the names and urls and last night's interest in some other extracurricular...


WhatIWantMost: Coding II

I finally got back to writing some WhatIWantMost code again. My new goal is to implement quite a few more of the user stories before I go off on any more tangents, though Chameleon is calling my name. For those of you keeping track at home I am...


WhatIWantMost: Looking at third-party search

Since we last talked... well, since we last talked about my progress on the project, I knocked out a few more simple tasks and then I started on a detour away from the important user stories. Hey, it's my project I can do whatever I want! After...
