Consume WebMethod (code behind) using javascript / AJAX 1.0

Hi,

I have a web mithod in my code behind page (simplified):

    <System.Web.Services.WebMethodAttribute()> <System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptMethodAttribute()> _
    Public Shared Function GetDynamicContent(ByVal contextKey As System.String) As System.String
        Return System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Session("MessageCount")
    End Function

I want to be able to call the web method client side and put the result into a javascript var. I found a few examples of doing this with web services, but I want to be able to access the session and application variables. and I cant seem to get that info from a service.

Ok, I found the answer here, and once you know how it is very easy. So here it is for all of you who want to consume a page event as if it was a web service, and STILL have access to the Session Vars of your clients session:

On You Page: (Take note of EnablePageMethods !!!!!)

<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" EnablePageMethods="true">

</asp:ScriptManager>
       
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

<!--

// Javascript function


function GetLatestMessages(){
//  CALL THIS FUNCTION TO CALL THE CODE BEHIND METHOD, IF NEEDED YOU CAN SUPPLY ARGUEMENTS
    PageMethods.GetDynamicContent(OnCallComplete,OnCallError);
}

function OnCallComplete(result,txtresult,methodName)

{
// DO SOMETHING HERE, THE RESULT IS THE RETURN FROM THE METHOD
}


function OnCallError(error,userContext,methodName)
{
    if(error !== null) {
       alert(error.get_message());
    }

}




// -->

</script>

CODE BEHIND:

<System.Web.Services.WebMethodAttribute()> <System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptMethodAttribute()> _
        Public Shared Function GetDynamicContent() As System.String
     
        Return System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Session("HelloWorldSession")
    End Function
