Last month Matt Berseth posted very good post about how to build Master-Detail with the GridView, DetailsView and ModalPopup Controls. Today I'm going to clone his post and build the same feature using jQuery with jQuery Plugins; one for popup windows jqModal& and the other is for Color Animation. You can view a demo of this sample here [View Demo].
Because I'm using some design tips and styles posted in Matt's posts, I recommend to return to his original posts regarding styling and UI enhancement. I used the styles and design shown on his post Building a VS2008 Styled Grid with the GridView Control.
It is important also to review documentation of jqModalas I'm not going to explain its APIs.
To make a long story short, I just modified Matt's sample and replaced ModalPopup control of AJAX Control Toolkit with jqModal. Also Matt used to indicate the updated row by setting a style sheet class to the updated row for certain period of time then remove it to make it look as before. I did the same, but I used some kind of animation provided by Color Animationplugin for jQuery.
