No it will not work. Ajax is built from JavaScript.

HI,

Yes we have an option to use AJAX when javascript is disabled. Many ppl consider that without javascript AJAX wont work... Yes its correct but for every problem always an alternative is thr... The alternative for you aproach is DEGRADABLE AJAX

"Degradable Ajax" is Degrading gracefully with old browsers, and browsers with JavaScript disabled.

http://particletree.com/features/the-hows-and-whys-of-degradable-ajax/

IF you write AJAX code to work in an environment independent of browser settings, thats termed as degradable AJAX (it works even when javascript is enabled/disabled).


Thanks

I am sorry to say then there is no Solution for this , because you cant enable it via code, but you can check if its enabled.

I am sorry.
