I'm the sole developer of our website, which uses Kentico CMS and allows me to develop in
ASP.Net and C#. I do my best to keep up with the latest trends and to do things the "correct" way, so as we set to rebuild our current site, I was wondering if everyone could give me advice.
One of the goals of our rebuild is to remove all ASP.Net UpdatePanels. They've caused us a lot of trouble and tend to be burdensome. I want to rely on jQuery's AJAX interface instead.
I'm familiar with creating WebService methods to handle AJAX calls. Our main call returns a JSON string which contains all the page data like the Page Title, any Content Regions HTML, and the Breadcrumb HTML.
Since we make use of Repeaters and such throughout our site to display data, I found a method online to render Controls server-side and return their HTML in the JSON string.
I guess I'm wondering if that's the best means to accomplish this. Since various data is displayed in different ways, it's easiest to use a Repeater and Transformation combo to generate the proper HTML of the data.
type-driven with custom transformations.
Anyway, I hope that makes sense. I'd appreciate any feedback anyone has on what I've stated and would be happy to clarify anything.
