  • Setting async to false means that the statement you are calling has to complete before the next statement in your function can be called.
  • If you set async: true then that statement will begin it's execution and the next statement will be called regardless of whether the async statement has completed yet.

Synchronous XMLHttpRequest outside of workers is in the process of being removed from the web platform as it has detrimental effects to the end user's experience.

(This is a long process that takes many years.) Developers must not pass false for the async argument when the JavaScript global environment is a document environment.


User agents are strongly encouraged to warn about such usage in developer tools and may experiment with throwing an InvalidAccessError exception when it occurs.The future direction is to only allow XMLHttpRequests in worker threads.

  • In this jQuery AJAX Example you will learn the most powerful feature of jQuery, and this is performing an Asynchronous HTTP Request. It is also known as AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML).

  • With AJAX you can update one or more areas of your web page without reloading the whole page, and thus making your application more interactive, faster and light weight. In this tutorial I will create a simple yet powerful jQuery AJAX Example, this will explain how easily you can use it in your web application.

The jQuery AJAX Method Calls the Below C# Function

I will also be doing some jQuery Validation to prevent users from inputting wrong values in the text boxes.

I will create this application in ASP.NET with C# as the programming language. I will be making AJAX call using jQuery AJAX method. Now coming to the development part, here I have two text boxes, one for name and other for email, and a submit button. When user fills both the text boxes and press the button, it sends the AJAX request to the C# function and no page postback happens.

The work of this C# function is to store the two text boxes information in the database.

Add Product Model

In the end the function returns the success or failed message depending up on whether the information is saved successfully in the database or not. The HTML of the Web Page and jQuery AJAX Method is given below:.

jQuery AJAX Method Code

Why I used [WebMethod] in this jQuery AJAX Example? It is an attribute that can be applied to certain functions in C#.

It is necessary that this method should be static and must have the attribute of [WebMethod] so that it can be called with the jQuery AJAX Method.

The jQuery AJAX method is called in the submit button click event. I have given the C# function’s location to the url field, and passed the values of the two text boxes in the function parameter by using the data field.

Action method to return JSON

Finally the returned message (returned by the C# function) is shown on the errorDiv. Please note that I have returned false in the last line of the click event so that the click event of this button does not bring postback to the page.
