    Ajax

    Im looking for a thread on Ajax and I have read nearly all the threads and I cant find it. In case I might be blind please show me the right direction. Am still new on this forum but I know its not a reason for not finding Ajax. Any help will be appreciated - am sure there are good forces around here.

    What specific part of AJAX are you looking for a thread on? Are you looking for a script or what? AJAX is really just JavaScript, XML and a Serverside language so try one of those forums.

    Thanks a million I really appreciate your reply. Though I feel at home with JavaScript XML and CSS I still dont know how things function in AJAX. Of course there is still a way of googling things out. I only thought there was a special thread but now Im glad to know that there is none. I checked a few tutorials from http://www.w3schools.com but I still didnt understand this XMLHttpRequest Methods - I guess I have to give it a try again maybe I will understand it after reading the tutorials the 50th time. Talking about a thick head (I hope not though)

    hey thanks for reading my rumbling.

    ola webgirl, get yourself an rss reader and then search the rss directories for ajax feeds, thats what i did for ajax (only this week). not sure who owns this forum but they have done a clean job with their rss also.

    first i downloaded FeedDemon - the rss reader, i looked at all the main ones, but i liked this best plus you can do 'watches' - put keywords in a watch (i.e. - your competitors) and if they pop up in a news feed it is gathered and you are notified.

    i searched google for rss directories, then i searched those rss directories for ajax rss feeds.

    these are the ajax sites i'm subscribed to - maxkiesler.com/index.php/mhub and ajaxian.com/by/topic/ajax/

    let me know if you find a good ajax resource yourself. i am reading a book about it that the moment. for software, backbase.com looks good, but is too expensive.

    Isnt there a way of starting the AJAX without downloading anything before - I mean just like JavaScipt when you learn it you dont have to download anything. I have a problem about downloading things others have done for me. Im sure there should be another way around.

    You don't have to download anything to use Ajax. Ajax is mostly just a buzzword anyway... normally it just means the use of XMLHttpRequest in Javascript.

    Have a look at http://www.w3schools.com/xml/xml_http.asp , it's needless to say that you need a pretty sound knowledge of Javascript already though.

    I saw that "XMLhttpRequest" thingy already and I guess there is no other way but check it again.

    So long

    If you put the link in proper context, no one will think that. We are usually pretty good about that.
