I love reading great articles! The one I am posting today is simply deep and marvelous! Its written by the well known Jeff Prosise and is included in the last issue of MSDN Magazine.
In this article Jeff explains how to use drag and drop using ASP.NET Ajax Extensions with new Visual Studio. Here is a small part of it, at the end there is a link to the whole article:
AJAX has revolutionized Web user interfaces, and ASP.NET AJAX has made AJAX available to the Visual Studio® users. It comes in three separate downloads: ASP.NET AJAX Extensions (asp.net/ajax/downloads), which provides the core, fully tested set of AJAX functionality; ASP.NET AJAX Futures (asp.net/downloads/futures), which contains experimental features on which the product group wants feedback; and the ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit (asp.net/ajax/ajaxcontroltoolkit/samples), which provides a grab bag of AJAX controls as well as an SDK for building controls of your own.
Of the three, the Futures release has garnered the least attention from the developer community. That’s unfortunate because, more than providing a glimpse into what future versions of ASP.NET AJAX might look like, the Futures Community Technology Preview (CTP) is chock full of features that can be used to build cutting-edge Web apps today. A case in point is drag-and-drop.
