Remember that this article is only an introduction and in no way demonstrates the capabilities of j Query.
I have written an EBook which demonstrates the capabilities of doing client side development in ASP. It's called "51 Tips, Tricks and Recipes with j Query and ASP. In the forthcoming articles, we will see how j Query can further be used with ASP.
This was accomplished in the previous articles through a stored procedure named ALTER PROCEDURE dbo.
Get Employees By Department Row Count ( @Department ID int ) AS IF @Department ID IS NULL -- Return the TOTAL number of employees EXEC Get Employees Row Count ELSE -- Return the number of employees in a specific department SELECT COUNT(*) FROM Employees WHERE Department ID = @Department ID clause it is usually a good idea to add an INDEX for performance reasons, especially when working with large amounts of data where the INDEX is fairly selective and access to the table is read-dominated.
Also, j Query intellisense annotation support will be available as a free web-download.
Barely a few weeks after the announcement, Microsoft during the PDC event (held in the last week of October), announced that Visual Studio 2008 now supports j Query Intellisense through an additional file available from j Query.
It is possible to implement filtering with custom paging and sorting, however.
When using the inefficient default paging, filtering is easy to implement but includes the same inherent inefficiencies: the data Web control retrieves all of the filtered records even though only a subset of them are displayed on each page.
The j Query framework is extensible and very nicely handles DOM manipulations, CSS, AJAX, Events and Animations.[Update 2] Instead of downloading the j Query files, you can also reference the files directly using a Content Delivery Network (CDN).
Well if you have been hearing those words more too often from your colleagues but haven’t had the chance to explore j Query yet, then here’s this beginner guide for you to get started with j Query and ASP. j Query is a fast, lightweight Java Script library that is CSS3 compliant and supports many browsers.
NET 2.0 data web controls - the Grid View, Details View, and Form View - all provide built-in paging support that can be enabled at the tick of a checkbox.
Unfortunately, this built-in paging support is very inefficient when paging through large amounts of data since it naively grabs all of the records from the data being paged through even though only a subset of the records are displayed.
