- [Voiceover] 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 website 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'll 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'll look at some advanced UI controls like CFlayout and CFmessagebox.

Then we'll take a look at binding form controls to your AJAX containers and using complex data grids and trees. And lastly, I'll show you how to call component objects and methods directly through JavaScript using CF AJAX proxy. After you are finished, you will be ready to start adding complex JavaScript UI interaction to your applications in no time. So if you're ready, let's get going with ColdFusion 9 AJAX Controls and Techniques.
