Select Web Service item (ASMX) and give the name as you want. I have left the default name and clicked on Add option. In my case, the name of the service is WebService1.asmx.

Step 5

Let us focus on the comment. The given comment is “To allow this Web Service to be called from script, using ASP.NET AJAX, uncomment the following line”. It means - you will have to uncomment the below (// [System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService]) code to be called from jQuery AJAX.

Step 6

I have changed “HelloWorld” function parameter and passed one parameter named as myUserName and data type as a string. The function is returning “HelloWorld” plus input parameter.
