An AJAX service is a program or script that outputs and provides data to AJAX features (acting as AJAX clients).
AJAX service pages are created using the AJAX Service Builder and automatically placed in "services" folder. The AJAX service page is a simplified page that includes the grid component template to output specially formatted data.
An AJAX service page includes a special hidden attribute that allows it to be generated without the usual HTML <head> and <body> sections.
Depending on initial configuration, the service can be configured to output data in 2 common AJAX service formats:
The AJAX services supported by CodeCharge Studio are compatible with external AJAX libraries and components since they are based on common standards. This means that external AJAX components should be able to obtain data from your AJAX Service built with CodeCharge Studio. Likewise, you should be able to use external AJAX data within your CodeCharge Studio forms.
To create a new AJAX service page, select the "Service Builder" from the ribbon bar under the Builders tab, then follow the steps on the screen by selecting the service type, and then database table and fields to be the basis of your AJAX service.
To modify an existing AJAX service, select the service under the 'services' folder in the Project Explorer, and change the properties of the service in the Properties pane, and/or modify the HTML source for the service page.
