Hi Benjamin and Xavier,

thanks for your replies.

In FE i tried both pageType and eID [1]. In case of pageType there is 
no problem to call an Ajax action. In case of eID it seems to be 
neccessary to write an own ajax-extbase dispatcher, isn't it?

But in BE, how can i call an Extbase action here when using AjaxID / 
ajax.php? There is a good documentation about using Ajax in BE in 
general [2], but it contains no hints regarding Extbase.

I've also read about ExtDirect [3], but i have no idea at all if this 
should be used in this context?

Kind regards, Jan
