jQuery is the most popular JavaScript library in use today, appearing on nearly two thirds of the 10,000 most visited sites on the web. With this sort of popularity, it’s clear that ASP.NET developers can’t afford to miss out.

By combining jQuery with ASP.NET you get the best of both worlds: the client-side interactivity and responsiveness of JavaScript with the robustness and extensibility of Microsoft's web stack. Beginning jQuery 2 for ASP.NET Developers shows you how.

To begin with, you'll find out how jQuery hooks up with your ASP.NET controls, and simplifies event handling by keeping it in the browser. Then you'll learn to handle dynamic content and responsive layouts by interacting with the DOM. Effects and animations are one of the most popular uses of the jQuery library, so we cover that next—showing you how to get a sleek modern look and feel to your site using some of the vast library of JavaScript that's already out there waiting to be used.

Ajax is one of the areas where jQuery really shines, so you'll find out how to make Ajax calls to a web service and get data onto a page without waiting for slow ASP.NET postbacks every time. And no book on jQuery would be complete without jQuery Mobile: the popular mobile web framework that gets you writing sites that work across all the major mobile platforms.

What you’ll learnSelect DOM elements using powerful jQuery selectorsUse jQuery with ASP.NET server controls, ASP.NET MVC form fields and other DOM elementsManipulate and traverse the DOM tree and add jQuery effects to ASP.NET web pagesMake Ajax calls and pass JSON data to Web Services, Web Methods, WCF services, controller action methods, HTTP handlers and Web APIs Understand code reuse by creating and using jQuery plugins Get introduced to jQuery UI and jQuery mobile and use them in ASP.NET Web Forms and MVC applicationsWho this book is for
