I know these questions probably seem dumb, but after reading a lot of examples, I can't find something that will simply explain/show the setup of js file.
First, in asp.net 2008 I have a choice of adding an Ajax Client Library and a jScript file.  Does it matter which one I select?
Second, In a custom js file, can I add multiple functions or do you create a new js file for each function.
Third, does every js file start with jQuery(document).ready(function() when you have referenced the jquery-1.6.2.min.js in a masterpage?

Thanks

Hi there,

First of all, I would go with just a jscript file. jQuery has ajax routines built into, and I would imagine you'll just be using them over the microsoft version.  Choosing jscript file will create a new blank file.

Secondly,

Sure! put as many functions as you like in a custom file.  Normal practice would be to group your functions into logical groups in the same file.  That of course doesn't stop you from putting just one function in a file, you can do as you please. (Although in terms of performance, putting multiple functions in the same file improves load time, as the browser does not have to make a roundtrip several times to the server for each file.

Lastly,

You can reference $(document).ready in every file you include, if there is something in each you want to initialise. It however is not a requirement, a js file can simply be full of jquery functions that you call as and when.
