The Atlas project has been introduced by Microsoft for the ASP.NET 2.0 framework.  Atlas enables you to make client side calls and save the expensive full postback to the server.  This results in a better user experience and a performance boost.  In this article I will demonstrate how you can use Atlas to make a very simple “Contact List Application.”

Title: UpdatePanel has no effect on the GridView itself

Mohammad wrote "I moved the GridView inside the Update Panel’s ContentTemplate tag. Now if you run your application, you will notice that all the events generated by the GridView are handled on the client side and no server postback occurs." What events are meant here? The GridView works as normal, except that only the GridView will have roundtrips to the server, not the whole page. But that doesn't make much difference in the current example.

Mohammad's example is a read-only list, but if you use de GridView to change records then you need different templates. In this case I would have liked that the statement of Mohammad was true. That the change from the ItemTemplate to EditItemTemplate was handled by client-side script, instead of by the server.

Concerning sorting, without templates you can use EnableSortingAndPagingCallbacks, already an Atlas-like feature of .NET 2.0.

Looks like Atlas makes Web developers and users life simple. I believe it must have some disadvantages too. It would be good to provide a little section about this as well along with any Atlas functionality shown. This would give the developer edge of whether or not implement it depending on the context.
