ASP.Net 3.5 Unleashed (Unleashed)


ASP.Net 3.5 Unleashed (Unleashed) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

ASP.NET 3.5 Unleashed is the most comprehensive book available on the Microsoft ASP.NET 3.5 Framework, covering all aspects of the ASP.NET 3.5 Framework--no matter how advanced.


This edition covers all the new features of ASP.NET 3.5. It explains Microsoft LINQ to SQL in detail. It includes a chapter on the two new data access controls introduced with the ASP.NET 3.5 Framework: ListView and DataPager. With its coverage of ASP.NET AJAX, this book shows you how to take advantage of Microsoft’s server-side AJAX framework to retrofit existing ASP.NET applications with AJAX functionality. It also demonstrates how to use Microsoft’s client-side AJAX framework to build the web applications of the future: pure client-side AJAX applications. All code samples are written in the C# programming language. (Visual Basic versions of all code samples are included on the CD-ROM that accompanies this book.)


  • Take advantage of Microsoft’s new database query language, LINQ to SQL, to easily build database-driven web applications
  • Learn how to use the new ListView and DataPager data access controls to build flexible user interfaces
  • Take advantage of ASP.NET AJAX when building both server-side and client-side web applications
  • Use the AJAX Control Toolkit to create auto-complete text fields, draggable panels, masked edit fields, and complex animations
  • Design ASP.NET websites
  • Secure your ASP.NET applications
  • Create custom components
  • Build highly interactive websites that can scale to handle thousands of simultaneous users
  • Learn to build a complete ASP.NET 3.5 website from start to finish—the last chapter of the book includes a sample ASP.NET 3.5 web application written with LINQ to SQL and ASP.NET AJAX


CD-ROM includes all examples and source code presented in this book in both C# and Visual Basic.
