In Detail

The role of the web application developer has changed over time, making it more important now to have more than just one set of programming skills. Understanding Ext.NET will mean the difference between building a regular web application and building a quick, professional, and modern web application. Go from the client side to the server side in a few lines of code and back again. All you have to concentrate on is the building blocks of your application, without the need for any creative flair.

Instant Ext.NET Application Development How-to is a practical, hands-on guide that provides you with a number of clear, step-by-step exercises, which will help you take advantage of the real power that is behind Ext.NET, and give you a good grounding in using it in your web applications. This book takes you from the initial steps of how to declare controls, interact with them on the client side or the server side, through to real-world examples, with questions and answers on the most commonly-used controls.

You will also learn how to use the multitude of controls and minimize design effort when it comes to building a rich web application. Find out how effortless it is to mask a web page when an AJAX request is fired and when a response is received, and how easy it is to edit and submit grid values and rows back to the server, as well as how easy Ext.NET makes it to interact with your custom objects in JavaScript.

Ext.NET Application Development How-to will teach you everything you need to get you started programming web applications using the Ext.NET framework.
