Asp.Net "Atlas" June 2006 CTP

“Atlas” is a free framework for building a new generation of richer, more interactive, highly personalized cross-browser web applications.
This new web development technology from Microsoft integrates cross-browser client script libraries with the ASP.NET 2.0 server-based development framework. In addition, “Atlas” offers you the same type of development platform for client-based web pages that ASP.NET offers for server-based pages. And because “Atlas” is an extension of ASP.NET, it is fully integrated with server-based services. “Atlas” makes it possible to easily take advantage of AJAX techniques on the web and enables you to create ASP.NET pages with a rich, responsive UI and server communication. However, “Atlas” isn’t just for ASP.NET. You can take advantage of the rich client framework to easily build client-centric web applications that integrate with any backend data provider and run on most modern browsers.


  • UpdatePanels can be added to a page dynamically throughout the page lifecycle, including UpdatePanels inside templates. UpdatePanels now also work inside WebParts, and WebParts can be inside UpdatePanels.
  • UpdatePanel will preserve cookies set during an async postback when Response.Redirect() is called. This fixes Login control scenarios where an authorization cookie is set and the user gets redirected to the previous page.


  • ServiceMethod uses default error handler if none specified.
  • XsltBridgeTransformer now works with VirtualPathProviders
  • DBNull.Value now should be serialized as null
  • ServiceReferences now support optional InlineProxy attribute for generating service proxies in the page rather than through a serviceurl/js script reference.
  • Fix for scenarios where web service proxy contained the wrong port (webfarms, port forwarding)

Drag and Drop:

  • Drag and drop will no longer produce debug output
  • Interactive HTML elements (input, button, textarea, select, label, anchors with an href) can no longer be dragged directly

Miscellaneous Changes:

  • Date.toFormattedString improvements
  • Client-side data: SaveData fix for strongly-typed DataSets
