OutPost Marketing blah

Thursday, March 15, 2007

OutPost hijacks the form post back event and

  • tells the server to execute the post back locally on the server,
  • an optimized DHTML-response is sent back to the client,
  • the page is updated using cross-browser DHTML and
  • page reloads and flickers are thereby eliminated.

Bandwidth usage is minimized by

  • diff-comparing two consecutive responses,
  • keeping state on server,
  • keeping js framework light,
  • compressing the response,
  • sending optimized DHTML and
  • not using Xml or JSON.


  • No custom controls needed
  • No update panels required
  • No Javascript/DOM skills required
  • Write ASP.NET like you use to do
  • Design your page like you use to do
  • Internal HTTP-compression
  • Multiple flakes on same page
  • One line of code enables Ajax
  • Pages can be included in other pages
  • Add form using client-scripting
  • Cross-form posting


  • ASP.NET 1.1 & 2.0 controls
  • Session state
  • ViewState
  • Caching
  • Url redirects
  • Server events
  • Most browsers
  • Form authentication


  • Simulate onload event on postbacks
  • Simulate onunload event on postbacks
  • Simulate onbeforeunload event on postbacks
  • Keep/reset client-side events on postbacks
  • Show/hide ViewState
  • Show/hide EventValidation
  • Turn compression on/off

Hi, my name is Sergio, I'm from Argentina....
I want to experiment with hijax frameworks, I found outpost and conformtasp as the bests.

I include the bin files to my aplication and modify the web.config. Finally I add the outpost.ajax.enable() on the page_load, but that not work, never trigger a simple click button...Do you know any issue about outpost and VS 2005 ?

Thanks...Greeting, good job.


PS: Sorry , for my poor english.

There should not be any issues with VS 2005. Can you get the demos working? Post or email the code to me and I'll take a look at it!

Hi Troels,

I'm relatively new to this ajax stuffs but really want to use it in my web appl without any hassle to learn all of those javascript/ajax, and need to use it immediately into any existing appl. Just recently found your Outpost, and think it's a great start. Do you have any comprehensive documentation or a quickstart on how to start using it?

Many thanks in advance,
