ASP.NET MVC 1 had features built in that allowed you to validate content on the server-side, by specifying the elements to listen to validations for.  These features have been enhanced so that you can use a lambda to specify the field to validate.  Below is an illustration of these new features. <% Html.BeginForm(); %> <%= Html.ValidationSummary(“The […]

    <p> Ajax Custom</p> <p>  <div id=”customresponse”></div>  <% using (Ajax.BeginForm(“AjaxCustom”, new AjaxOptions { UpdateTargetId = “customresponse” })) { %>      <div>   Name: <%= Html.TextBox(“CustomName”)%>  </div>  <div>   Value: <%= Html.TextBox(“CustomValue”)%>  </div>      <input type=”submit” value=”save” />    <% } %></p>   [HttpGet, ChildActionOnly]public ActionResult AjaxCustom(){ return PartialView();} [HttpPost]public ActionResult AjaxCustom(FormCollection post){ return Content(“Success”); //return PartialView();} public ActionResult AjaxIndex(){ return View();}

ASP.NET MVC gives you a lot of options when you want to customize the way that ASP.NET MVC uses controllers.  By default, ASP.NET uses a controller factory to handle MVC controller requests.  A ControllerActionInvoker class, related to the controller, is solely responsible for invoking action method requests and returning the results.  It is this class […]

ASP.NET MVC is a wonderful thing.  One of the many great features is the ability to customize all of the .NET framework’s code by swapping out one implementation and using another.  One such instance is creating a custom view engine, which you can do as illustrated in this example:  The point of my article […]
