There are several frameworks that enable you to use AJAX with .NET without having to handcode everything yourself.
One is Anthem.net which is very easy to learn (http://www.anthemdotnet.com/). All the controls inherit from the normal asp.net controls, which makes them easy to use if you're used to asp.net.
Another one is atlas (which Microsoft stands behind). You can find information about it here: http://atlas.asp.net/Default.aspx?tab.... I don't know that much about atlas, but have read some comparisons that said that anthem was easier to start with.
Both are free to download, anthem.net is also open source.
If you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Well i want to learn the code from the scratch and i dont want to use Anthem.net or atlas codes. You are right that Anthem.net is simple as compared to altlas but i didnt find any comment given in that code. So its quite difficult for me to understand its code.
So please let me know where i can get the code to implement in asp.net with comments . I want to develop own AJAX engine and framework.
Well if you know any book also please suggest me.

Learning to code the XmlHttpRequest object by hand is probably more of a waste of time than you've considered, especially when you figure in the browser incompatibilities.
I started down that road myself, and quickly found myself switching to the Prototype framework and then added the Scriptaculous (http://script.aculo.us) for some of the event handling capabilities and visual effects it provides. The best part about these is they handle the cross-browser incompatibilities with much less hassle than trying to do it from scratch.
I use standard aspx pages to handle the Ajax calls, the only thing I found that was causing a problem (only in IE) was that I had to remove all of the client-side (non codefile) tags...so no or tags, etc. That way, the .aspx page was sending back a response, rather than a document.
As for the books to look at, I've had good luck with Ajax in Action and Pragmatic Ajax...both of which present a good overview of Ajax and how to incorporate it into a project.
I hope this helps...
