Super Simple MVC Ajax With JQuery Demo mvc, 0 comments suggest edit

UPDATE: I linked to the wrong post. I corrected the link.

During the recent Insiders summit, Wally cornered me into recording a really short video demonstrating a feature of ASP.NET MVC. I decided to sprinkle a little Ajax in my demo by showing how to use jQuery to call an action that returns a JsonResult.

Specifically, I show how to update a couple of regions in the page (two dom elements) with data pulled from the server. I then add a little sparkle to the demo by implementing the ubiquitous yellow fade when adding the content to the DOM. As you’re watching it, you’ll notice that I’m making it up on the fly based on another demo I did earlier that day.

He’s posted the video here in show #106 121. That’s heckuva a lot of shows Wally!

    Hmmm... The link seems to only show the mp3 for the show and no video. I don't think listening to an MVC Demo would be quite the same.

    Sounds awesome, however, I seem to be encountering the same results as Chris. Maybe you could post the code online? :)

    I was getting a JavaScript error in Firefox involving the removeAttribute method in the Flash. I updated the code to the following and it appears to work in both Firefox and IE now.
    function flash(selector) {
    .css('opacity', 0)
    .animate({ backgroundColor: 'khaki', opacity: 1.0 }, 800)
    .animate({ backgroundColor: '#ffffff' }, 350, function() {
