Release Notes

This project contains a sample project which demonstrates how to use Smooth Popup on an Asp.Net page.

Open the project, set SmoothPopupTestPage as your start up page, and you should be all set.

I have plans to create a Web User Control that serves as a Template Control for a popup control base, but for now I needed this to show a popup in a web site I am building, and I got side tracked for almost two weeks on how difficult showing popups in an Asp.Net page (I am a Windows Developer, so everything on the web seems hard to me).

I looked at JavaScript Lightbox, the Ajax Control Toolkit Modal Popup Extender, and many other methods, and then I found this one from Yens Design (I am not sure where they are located) and this seemed to me the simplest, lightest weight solution for what I needed.

In my efforts I originally created a Smooth Popup Button user control, but essentially it was just a panel, and I scraped the button idea because the flexibility of a div or a panel is hard to beat.

Ironically, I cannot get the code to work with an Image Button, if anyone smart figures that out, drop me a line for the solution and I will make sure it gets included in the code.

I also owe a many thanks to the people in the Asp.Net and C# forums who I use all the time for my own needs, and do not give back as much as I should.

Hopefully some others will benefit from this project, as I think this is pretty cool, but then I think everything I write is cool, it is up to other people to decide if they like it.

I listed the project as stable, because it runs and works for me, but that is the extent of the testing I have done; use caution as it is not thorougly tested, but seems very flexible.

Up until now I had only Googled Javascrpt, and never tried to write it, but I guess writing Linq queries and using var's more often made Javascript / JQuery not seem so much different than C#.
