ColdFusion 9: AJAX Controls and Techniques

with Daniel Short

Video: Introduction

Hello, I'm Dan Short and I am pleased to present ColdFusion 9 AJAX Controls and Techniques. In the last few years, AJAX has become a bigger and bigger piece of Web site design and interaction. Starting with ColdFusion 8 and continuing in ColdFusion 9, Adobe is adding more and more tools to make AJAX development quick and easy for ColdFusion developers. I will start by showing you how to work with basic AJAX containers in ColdFusion, and show you some tips on how to debug your AJAX behaviors. Then we will look at some advanced UI controls like CFlayout and CFmessagebox.
