Building an ASP.NET iPhone Site

April 4, 2009 12:02 by J Christopher Bannon

Thanks to all who attended the presentation today at Pitt Code Camp!

Here are the Slides and Code I promised you. Please don't forget to sign up for the ComponentOne Studio for iPhone CTP! It is by far the best tool to use for building data driven iPhone sites. This iPhone sample actually is embebed in a premade ASP.NET web app. It uses the same functions and even the same ASP.NET Membership.I hope you found the presnetation helpful.

If you didn't make the presentation I think these files can still help you get started in building your own ASP.NET iPhone site.

Next-generation ASP.NET controls from ComponentOne. Check out C1's new Studio for ASP.NET. These controls are built using their new "Palomino" technology.

Microsoft Adopts jQuery for ASP.NET

September 28, 2008 18:11 by J Christopher Bannon

Microsoft ASP.NET & jQuery Love

Today was a great day for developers and designers alike as John Resig & Scott Guthrie announced Micosoft adopting jQuery as a standard for JavaScript libraries in Visual Studio! MS plans to ship the library with future releases of Visual Studio and will be supporting the cool new IntelliSense for JavaScript in there incredibly usefull IDE. We have long been pairing ASP.NET and jQuery as you know with RIAnimation and RichUI, but are so glad to see Micosoft get our backs on the concept. This is awesome news and will hlp us move our two FREE project forward faster. It is really refreshing to see Microsoft is breaking thir mold lately with "outside-the-box" ideas like ASP.NET MVC, Enity Framework, and this latest jQuery endeavor! Kudos to you Microsoft and congrats to John and the jQuery team for getting reckognized by the biggest name in the web for your work.

Following all this buzz about jQuery we will be dropping the official V1 release of RIAnimation with insane performance and design time enhancements. It has ben completely ported to the new jQuery UI Effects library and has some awesome new animations in it. I bet there are some developers out there who can't wait to make their GridViews "explode", literally!

We are just adding desig time support to our first round of RichUI controls and then thy will be dropping as an Alpha project. RichUI is ASP.NET controls that render as jQuery widgets and are completely client-side interaction. This is an awesome set of controls for all you MVC guys out there and has some really nice interaction for all you RIA designers! Some of the controls are: Accordion, Tabs, SplitLayout, RichPanel, and more... Microsoft's Scott Hanselman mentioned they plan to add controls to ASP.NET framework that are based on the jQuery widgets, I wonder if they sould just save the time and use RichUI? It sounds like they are planning exactly what we are doing and almost finished with! For anyone who can't wait, here is a very early Demo of RichUI (ASP.NET jQuery controls).

HushHushMedia RIAnimation

RIAnimation Version 1.0 will be relasing soon! We are currently updating RIAnimation to implement the new jQuery UI effects engine. This will be a huge improvement since it will be using the latest jQuery build and will be compatable with new plugins!

We hope to have Version 1 released early this summer.

Here are some of the highlights:

April 11, 2008 04:39 by J Christopher Bannon

The Windows experience is familiar to millions of users worldwide. By using highly responsive, AJAX-enhanced components, you can deliver this familiar experience in any web application and take your usability to a higher level. Great web applications offer great interactions that make the users life easier and in the end give them a positive experience. With ASP.NET AJAX and the wide array of visual controls in the market, we have the tools to create incredible experiences without getting bogged down with the code required to do so. In the following Demo I will walk you through an innovative web application that mimics the Windows Experience and make the user feel right at home.
