- 1 minute


This following example is a small snippet of code for a AJAX web service call to
a .NET service with JQuery. We will be sending a email and name to our web service to sign up for a email subscription.

/*JS Email Subscription AJAX web service*/


function callService() {
// Here we will create our data object to send. In this example we are
// sending a email subscription request. We will send a email address and a name.
var data = {
email: $('#emailTextBox').val(),
name: $('#nameTextBox').val()

type: 'POST',
url: '/myWebServices.asmx/emailSubscription',
data: JSON.stringify({ data: data }),
contentType: 'application/json; charset=utf-8',
dataType: 'json',
success: function(response) {
if (response.d == true) {
alert('You have been subscribed');
//Do any work you want if the web service was successful.
} else {
//Or throw a error
error: function(error) {
//Or throw a error if service failed
