Release Notes

If you like any of my projects you can help support my web site www.daily-click.com which is dedicated to using technology to helping people and animals; You can make a donation of any amount $3 and up or by telling your friends, family and coworkers about my web site. Daily-Click.com offers free email and text messaging services to pet guardians and / or emerency contacts if a user does not 'Check In' at the times they selected or in the event of an emergency. Perfect for anyone who lives alone, especially pet owners and seniors.

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

Open the project, set SmoothPopupTestPage as your start up page, and run the project to see a demonstration of Smooth Popup.

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#.
