- select the contributor at the end of the page -
Building an asynchronous web page has gotten much easier over the years, but creating one that still works with postbacks for browsers that don't have JavaScript support isn't quite so simple.  In this video excerpt from Scott Allen's new course Building Applications with ASP.NET MVC 4 you'll see how to use the new HTML 5 "data dash" tags to apply attributes to your HTML that can be used to attach jQuery functions, all without breaking the fundamental form submission process.  In the full course Scott covers other topics such as action filters, Razor layout views, and security in ASP.NET MVC 4.


Scott has worked on everything from 8-bit embedded devices to large scale web sites during his 15+ years in commercial software development. Since 2001, Scott has focused on server-side and web technologies, like ASP.NET, ASP.NET AJAX, Windows Workflow, Silverlight, and LINQ. Scott is also a speaker at national conferences like VSLive!, as well as code camps and user groups near his hometown of Hagerstown, MD.  Scott has been recognized as a Microsoft MVP since 2005, and has written or co-authored several books on Microsoft technologies. Scott founded the site in 2004.
