Topic: Need help thinking about AJAX...
I'm working on my first application that really requires ajax, and I need to get a prototype done quickly to start testing on if its even going to work on the mobile devices it'll be access from.
I think I need each ajax request to generate two changes on the screen, and I'm a little unsure how to approach that. The rough setup is that the view has three areas
1. Abbreviated Descriptive Content -- this won't change
2. Progress indicator (1/24, changing to 2/24 ... upto 24/24)
3. An table of "something" initiating the action -- for now we're trying to just use standard links. Each link is labelled with an identifier number, like '100', '101', etc. Clicking on the link should toggle the background color and increment/decrement the progress indicator.
I beleive I know enough to make either 2 or 3 happen, but not how to make both happen. Can anyone offer some advice over how to due multiple page changes in one ajax action?
