Creating AJAX-Powered Forms with the Dojo Toolkit

This presentation will demonstrate how to quickly and easily add AJAX capabilities to standard HTML forms using the Dojo toolkit

In this upcoming AJAXWorld Conference & Expo session (March 19-21, in New York City), delegates will learn that many business developers want to start using AJAX by enhancing the forms in their existing applications. This presentation will demonstrate how to quickly and easily add AJAX capabilities to standard HTML forms using the Dojo toolkit. This talk is for developers who want to enpower their forms quickly with a minimal learning curve. We'll cover client-side validations, validations on the server without a page refresh, and adding specialized Dojo widgets to forms for selecting dates and providing a rich text editor. Relevent features of Dojo .4 will also be discussed. Students will walk away with practical examples for adding AJAX capabilities to their forms.
