jQuery and ASP.NET

I’m finding the more that I use jQuery, the more I like it, which is good since it’s now (as of the ASP.NET MVC beta release) being included with ASP.NET automatically.

For those of us using Web Forms, rather than MVC, however, selecting elements by client ID can be tricky, due to the way ASP.NET dynamically generates the IDs of nested controls. Via twitter, I found a nice article discussing different approaches to making jQuery selectors work with ASP.NET controls. You can find the article at:


Another cool jQuery-related article I just came across is:


It discusses a project to create a jQuery add-on to render a calendar of events. I’m planning to test it out for possible use in a calendar view for Community Megaphone.

If you want to stay up-to-date on the latest jQuery info, and you’re on twitter, you should be following Elijah Manor. Consistently useful links.
