This post shows how to use ZOHO CRM API to get, edit, add, and delete ZOHO CRM Lead records. A better way of using Zoho CRM API function was introduced on March 6th 2011, instead of using Ticket number which need to be renewed every 7 days, the Token won't be expired unless it is removed
You can view the live demo from here:
http://www.datawebcoder.com/Demo/5/Using_ZOHO_CRM_API_in_Net_Website_page.aspx

From above demo, you can use 2 ways:
1. Generate Ticket Number by using API key for Zoho CRM API calls, you need renew the Ticket Number every 7 days. Zoho CRM will discontinue support for API Key and Ticket after June 30, 2012

2. Generate Token Number which won't be expired unless it is removed, this is a better and easier way for all the Zoho CRM API calls. This method can be used starting from March 6th 2012.

Suggestion: If you think you are using Zoho CRM API function(s) from your website, or from any other applications, please update the method before June 30, 2012, I suggest to do this as early as possible, as Zoho CRM will discontinue support for API Key and Ticket after June 30, 2012. All existing API users are recommended to replace all API calls with the Authentication Token.

This video might help programmers to switch from method 1 to method 2.
Zoho CRM Authentication Token introduced

Update on June 27 2012: You can copy and paste below line to your web browser address bar, replace "Email ID" to your zoho crm account email address and "Your Zoho CRM Password" to your zoho crm password, then you will get the token number, one token number is enough:

We are trying to  synchronize zoho crm with >net aspplication,below i am mentioning my needs

1.I would like to Synchronize zoho CRM contacts to .net based application where contacts record id(Unique representation of the contact) needs to get saved in the .net application database.

2.When customers use this .net based application and if they click on the record id or name then, only zoho contact should get displayed without asking for zoho credentials in zoho interface with out navigating to other window for zoho signup.
