I am building a forum in a site. The data grid I am using has in-place Editors and pagination. But I dont want the "unwanted" page refreshes in the page when I feel to edit a topic or subject in the discussion forum or during pagination.
I want Ajax to be implemented for Pagination and in-place editors in that page so that the users dont have to face the page refreshes for updating or inserting Data or during Page change. MoreOver, If a "User A" starts a new topic,then "User B"(a different person), who is also logged into the same page and in same time can see a new row added by the "User A" in that page without refreshing the entire page. Also the number in the "NO. of Replies" coloumn should increment automatically.
I am really novice in AJAX and Ironically Really Eager to Implement this Technology as soon as possible. I have been working in JavaScript and DOM since couple of months. but I dont have any knowledge about Dojo, Prototype or Scriptaculous and there implementations.

I would be very happy if you let me know the way for implementing those which I have described above and How the Book "Practical JavaScript, DOM Scripting and Ajax" will be help for me from this regard?

Thanks & Regards

Hi Prithiraj,

Well, one of the ways my book may help is that you'll see examples of using all of the libraries you mentioned Although, for anyone reading this looking for real in-depth coverage of each, you won't get that in my book... it's more of an introduction/sample usage of some parts of each (the book would have to be *A LOT* bigger and take *A LOT* more time to go into most of these libraries in good depth).

As for how to implement the things you mention, that's going into a great deal of detail, not really appropriate for a forum lik this (we'd be throwing huge chunks of code back and forth over probably hundreds of replies). My suggestion would be to get a good book that will give you a good foundation, and then look at something like mine to get you to the next level.
