Sample text

When a widget is added or removed from one column, only the UpdatePanel on that column is refreshed. 18 | Chapter 2: Architecting the Web Portal and Widgets When you drag and drop a widget from one column to another, there is no need for an UpdatePanel refresh because the UI is already up-to-date using JavaScript. You just need to inform the server which widget has been moved. The server can also recalculate the new position of all the widgets, just like the client does. So, there’s no asynchronous postback on drag and drop; it’s only needed when a new widget is added or removed.

You can write the widget as a user control and, in the control code, handle events the usual way for a user control. NET page cycle works the same as ordinary page processing. NET control and write code for its events. The Container provides the widget’s container and frame, and defines a header and a body area. The actual widget is loaded inside the body area at runtime by the widget container. For each widget on the page, the core creates one widget container, and then the widget container dynamically loads the real widget inside its body area.

Put HTML elements before script blocks so that browser can render the HTML block before it starts downloading scripts. The header control is put before the ScriptManager block. This makes the header emit its HTML right after the body tag. Because browsers render top to bottom, putting the HTML block for the search bar at the top of the page will help the browser render the search bar as soon as the user visits the site. Users typically launch their browsers many times a day for the sole purpose of web searching, so they need to be able to get to the search bar as soon as possible.
