Combine Multiple JavaScript and CSS Files and Remove Overheads
When developing a large web application especially if it is Ajax enabled, we often ended up with a larger number of JavaScript and Cascading Stylesheet files and it is quite common that more than one JavaScript file is involved for a single functionality.

When a browser encounters ......

There are plenty of examples available on how to abort an UpdatePanel AsyncPostback but none for the WebService. The following will show you how to do it.

While visiting forum, I found an interesting request, A forum member is trying to implement some validator controls where the member wants to call a Web Service method, since the nature of Ajax is asynchronous the call does not return instantly.
