Why MVC is Better Over Webforms

This article would be using two terminologies ASP.NET WEbforms and ASP.NET MVC. If you have watched the recent Microsoft Agenda, you’ll clearly see that they are focusing on MVC. The question to why Microsoft is so keen to dump ASP.NET Webform and persuade using ASP.NET MVC is still trivial.

So this is what the article will focus on. If you have observed, developers usually drag and drop user controls on the designers and the VS tools codes in behind the code.

When you drag and drop a button control on the designer, a button object is created and developers can write a code in the click event of the button object.

ASP.NET MVC5: Extending and Modifying Roles

In the recent article about extending ASP.NET 5 identity model, the author add some custom properties to the basic IdentityUser class, and some basic role-based identity management. However, the author did not discuss modifying, extending, or working directly with Roles beyond seeding the database with basic roles with which to manage application access.

There are two reasons to extend the basic ASP.NET IdentityRole class and working directly with roles from an administrative perspective:

ASP.NET Identity User is fairly easy to extend.

When roles are used to enforce access restrictions, they are basically hard-coded; therefore, it gives the administrators the ability to add, modify, and delete roles.

Angular: BDD with Angular JS

In the previous post, we discussed the importance of Behavior Driven Testing but the examples in the article went straight to JavaScript rather than Angualar. We need to modify the example to be Angular but to do so, we need a few more fundamentals.

 

So let’s return to the program and modify our index.hml. Make sure you have Bootstrap.css.

You’ll also need to create your first Controller. The role of the controller is to be able to provide data to the view which is identified as VM or View Model.

You’ll also need to build another directive: ng-repeat.

The job of ng-repeat is similar to foreach loop.

How to Develop ASP.NET Applications and Deploying it Into Windows Azure Cloud

The ASP.NET Framework for developing web applications has 2 options: ASP.NET Web Pages and ASP.NET MVC applications. ASP.NET is basically an alternative web application using the Microsoft .Net application framework. ASP.NET Framework is a framework that divides the application into three components, namely Model, View, and Controller.
