I managed to create using jQuery, some sticky notes to my webpage, with the "common" features: add, deleted, edit, reside (...)

I'm proud of my work but now I have two problems I'm not really sure how to solve, I have appreciate your help. Problems are:

- How should I store notes information (content and position). XML or MSSQL? For option 2, is it even possible?

- In the default page, I use a div tag
 <br />
div id="notes" style="width:800px;height:500px;">    <br />
<script type="text/javascript" etc... 

but I would like to "navigate" my sticky notes by the whole webpage. The way I did Is not very usefull. Can I do that?

Thanks in advance.

Would you even need XML or SQL? Seems a bit overkill unless your already using a DB in which case it probably is easier to use it to save position settings.

How would you persist the location and text for the notes without using XML or SQL?

Why would I need XML or SQL? What's the alternative? I need to save data because I use SQL DB with user's ID, and I need to assign every sticky note to the user ID, so every time a user login, he gets its stickys notes with the same content and position.

The question was directed at the previous comment from Lloyd Atkinson. I'd like to know how he would do it without a persistence mechanism

Yes I know, I would like to know that too.

I'm assuming you don't put a limit on the number of notes that a user can create. In which case since it grow very large then a database would be the best choice.

Not sure what you mean by; "navigate" my sticky notes by the whole webpage

Is really possible to integrate c# inside javascript functions? because every time I create/edit a sticky note (the code is on .js) I dont know if/how I can integrate the sql query procedure. The same problem I face with XML, because I dont know how to integrate c# code in my .js functions (i'm really new to javascript and c#, so please forgive my ignorance).

My navigation I mean: when I specify that div tag in the <body> of html, I specify a rectangle where sticky notes can be moved, and so on I'm limited that way (I cant integrate for example a login asp component inside that div tag). I hope I'm being cleary enough to understand my question.

Mark, I really dont know how to persist that info without using XML or SQL, still hoping for a guidance.

Thanks again.

You can't integrate C# inside JavaScript. The former is on the server-side, the latter on the client-side. What you can do is call a C# method from your JavaScript using AJAX.

The notes, IMO, should be floating divs so the use can place them anywhere on the page they would like. See this example:

Thanks Mark,

I'll search for the info, thank for help.
