Any possibility of Atlas AJAX support in the near future for ASP.NET?

OK I am new to this but I stumbled upon this site that uses the Yahoo classes that are free. This guy seems to have created a ajax grid for free and it seems like exactly what who be great in an upcoming version.

Adding built-in editing support to the Yahoo! UI Extensions Grid
September 10, 2006 by Jack Slocum

The #1 requested feature for the yui-ext Grid is built in editing support. I have seen the basic editing support offered by most of the commercial Javascript grids on the market and have been unimpressed. They seem to give you a basic text field, some checkboxes and maybe select fields. Most do allow you to implement other types of fields with a format function that duplicates the field for every cell in the column. This results in half your fields being click to edit, and the other half being a form field directly in the cell. Not only is this unintuitive, it also can lead to a very large footprint, especially in IE, when there are alot of rows.

I’ve decided rather than copying the limited editing capability of most of these other grids, the YUI-ext grid will be a full featured editor similar to one found in Windows or Java Swing. In order to make that happen, I need feedback from you on the editing features you’d like to see that are currently missing.

Example editable grid
Here’s a basic editable grid in it’s current alpha state. Click on a cell to edit. Try it out: type in a bogus date, put in a price greater than 10, put a date before 01/01/06, empty the Common Name field, test the number field masking, double click the column splitter to auto adjust column width, mouse wheel the date picker, etc…

If you figure how to implement let me know.

Why not just use the *extremely* popular/open source Prototype AJAX JavaScript library?

It's cross-browser, cross-platform, and open source. It certainly avoids licensing issues, hosting issues, cross-browser issues, and cross-language issues. It simply *has* to be easier to support in PHP, Perl, Java, and Cold Fusion....

Many, many of us could care less about a Microsoft, IIS, SQL-Server, and C# -only architecture. (I'll dub it a "MISC" architecture).

Many, many of us (I'll go out on a limb and say *most*) using CCS either want cross-platform, cross-database, cross-language support or would rather go closer to a "LAMP" architecture (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and Perl/Python/PHP).

So why back everyone into a corner to support just the Microsoft/IIS/.net/Internet Explorer Atlas segment? It violates the main selling point of CCS -- cross-everything.

(Personally, I prefer Linux, Apache/Lighttpd, PostgreSQL/SQLite, and Ruby on Rails/PHP/Perl, but I can settle on the lack of Ruby on Rails support in CCS, for the moment).

Looks like Yes Software will be providing integrated Ajax support - see PeterR's Happy NewYear message in the General forum.

Accepting and instigating change are life's challenges.
