How to create widgets in ASP/C# like in Facebook or iGoogle?

Hi,

I would like to create a web page with some modules that the user can move, organize, delete, such as the widgets in iGoogle or Facebook.

Is it hard to achieve? Are there several ways to do that, or some dedicated objects in Visual Studio 2005?

Thanks for your comments,
Julien

They are created using AJAX, javascript ++ (Drag panel with drag zone).
It exist lots of different way to achieve that.

Personally i wil suggest pay for some 3rd party such has telerik who provide that cool stuff. This will be LOTS easier then writing hundred line of code who need both to work under all browsers.

Hi jabcoco,

Thanks for the link, it seems to be very powerful, and I'm going to test the trial.

Would you know some other tools maybe a little bit less expensive?

Well, personally i Telerik is offering really great tools for ajax, including 24h support, forum, about 500 project code simple for all their product, client-side manipulation (javascript), skinning.. It also include a free unlimited support (about 48 hour) with the unlimited timed trial version.

I know "componentart" also have one it named "Snap".

I don't know any other free or not component who offer dock/panel.

You can also start reading about that on AJAX
