Download Microsoft AJAX Library Cheat Sheets!
It took longer than I anticipated. Documentation is pretty darn good, but I had to work through some inconsistencies, ambiguous wording and incorrect samples. For example, the Date Type Extensions one took the longest. Documentation points to the Standard DateTime Format Strings on MSDN, but the AJAX Library does not support them all. I had to look at the source code and figure out which formats were supported. Same goes for the Number Type Extensions. I’ve made an attempt to write a clear and concise sample where one was missing.
I’ve proofread the cheat sheets numerous times, and, for the sake of brevity, took something out with each iteration. I’d love to hear your feedback, and, as announcements in public transportation in NY go, “If you see something, say something.”

Jason and James pointed out that the PDFs looked odd in Foxit Reader. Indeed, they do. I bitched about Word as a publishing tool before, but I don’t own a full version of Acrobat, so I used Word 2007 to publish PDFs.
I downloaded Acrobat Reader 8, and I have to say Adobe seems to have gotten their act together. The reader loads fast and without annoying splash screens. Still, I’ll see if I can figure this out.
The Type Class is next, and I will probably do one on tracing and debugging. What else in the MS AJAX Library would you like to see dissected into a one-pager?
Update: Users of Foxit Reader, see this follow-up.
