Using Dart PowerWEB LiveControls, it is possible to achieve the benefits of AJAX-style web application behavior without the need to write (or know) a lot of client-side JavaScript, which is otherwise generally required. Steven Smith reviews this set of powerful and easy to use controls.

I’ve recently had the opportunity to work with Dart’s PowerWEB LiveControls suite at a client who was building a call center application using ASP.NET architecture. One requirement of the application was that incoming calls and work items needed to be visible to all users with up-to-the-second frequency. Using Dart’s controls, and most importantly their LiveDataGrid control, this requirement was easily met. Using AJAX-style (what’s this?) callbacks, the LiveControls allow for a dramatically improved user experience, without the need for the developer to hand code a bunch of JavaScript. In fact, the LiveControls build on the standard ASP.NET web controls, so the programming model changes very little when using these controls instead of the default controls.

The licensing used on these controls is pain. No matter what 'features' these controls have the headache caused by dealing with the licensing is just not worth it.
Title: Actually this is not too hard to accomplish.

I wouldn't pay $500 for a single server licence, especially for some controls that I've made in like 2 days (button, linkbutton, dropdownlist, listbox, label, checkbox, textbox)
