Web App with a header, treeview & contents
Im building a web app which will have a header with some menus. a treeview whose items come from a database. based on the node selection a contents page with a grid view.
i have used master pages to design the app and everything works fine. im using navigateurl to use the treeview and then to display data for the gridview.
the problem im having is that the entire page refreshes everytime a user clicks on a different node and the tree gets reloaded again.
so this refresh thing is killing the app as it looks slow...
what other ways to acheive this ? frames may be. anyone has any other ideas.
or may be say if frames is a good solution or not to keep the treeview and other static ?
Any help is appreciated...
Your choice of Iframes is the most apt for this problem. I am using the same kind of a design and it works like magic. I know I am not explaining in detail but I can say you are right out of experience
Another option is to use XmlHttpRequest to request the page contents when the user clicks a treeview node. For more information, see http://www.15seconds.com/issue/050526.htm .
Please post questions to the forums, where others may benefit.
