Calling Asp.NET web service from javascript (Ajax)-(Passing Parameter-GET)


Now we will modify the application that we developed in the previous post to work with parameters

1) First we will modify the default Hello World service to accept a parameter like this


public string HelloWorld(string Name)


return “Hello “+Name+”!”;


2) Add the html textbox control in the webform

<INPUT type=”text” id=”Info”>

3) Add the following in the body

<BODY onload=”getMessage()”>

4) Put the following script in our webpage.

<script language=”javascript”>

var xmlHttp;

function getMessage()


xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject(“Microsoft.XMLHTTP”);“get”, “http://localhost/WebService1/Service1.asmx/HelloWorld? name=’Nishant'”, true);


xmlHttp.send(); return false;


function doUpdate()




var xmlDoc=xmlHttp.responseXML;

var responseElement=xmlDoc.getElementsByTagName(“string”)[0];

var respText=responseElement.firstChild.nodeValue;





5) We have changed the method of passing the data to server from post to get as we are passing the value for Name by appending it in the url.

6) Right now if we run the application it will give us error as “object not found”.

7) The reason for the error is that we have to make our web service configured for get method.

8- We need to open web.config of our web service and add the following line inside system.web section



<add name=”HttpGet”/>



9) We need to build the service again

10) This time our application should work without any error.

  1. Hello! thank u very much.
    I have a question about above article:
    i implement just like above code and it works fine in IE, but in FireFox not even responding anything through breakpoint in javascrip function!!
    is there any solution for this code to work in firefox too?


  2. Hi Sherry,

    xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject(”Microsoft.XMLHTTP”)

    This line of code creates the XMLHttpRequest object. This object sends request to the server and processes the responses from it.

    The above code creates the object specific to Internet Explorer( <=6.o).

    It is implemented as Active X for IE. However in IE 7 XMLHttpRequest will come as native JavaScript object.

    For other browsers we can write

    xmlHttp=new XMLHttpRequest();

    or best we can write this



    xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject(”Microsoft.XMLHTTP”);


    else if (window.XmlHttpRequest)


    xmlHttp=new XMLHttpRequest();


    I hope this helps !!


  3. hello nishantrana,
