AJAX update functionality for Web Forms applications

PowerBuilder 11.2 uses AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) update functionality for Web Forms applications. With ASP.NET AJAX, Web Forms pages are updated by refreshing individual regions of each page asynchronously.

The AJAX enhancement for Web Forms applications does not require any changes in the PowerBuilder IDE, and you do not need to alter your PowerScript code to use the AJAX feature. However, PowerBuilder cannot deploy a Web Forms application unless AJAX is installed on the Web server. You can download and install the Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX Extensions version 1.0 on both the development and deployment computers from the ASP.NET Web site at http://www.asp.net/ajax/downloads/archive.
