How to Persist Data with TempData

TempData in Asp.Net MVC is one of the very useful feature. It is used to pass data from current request to subsequent request. In other words if we want to send data from one page to another page while redirection occurs, we can use TempData, but we need to do some consideration in code to achieve this feature in MVC. Because the life of TempData is very short and lies only till the target view is fully loaded. But, we can use Keep() method to persist data in TempData.

Understanding URL Rewriting and URL Attribute Routing in ASP.NET MVC (MVC5) with Examples

Url Rewriting and Routing is how ASP.NET MVC matches a URI to an action. MVC 5 supports a new type of routing, called attribute routing, which is also works in ASP.NET vNext. Attribute routing uses attributes to define routes. Attribute routing provides us more control over the URIs in your web application.

ASP.NET vNext Overview & features (MVC6, Web API, Web Pages and Single R)

Microsoft has announced to launch ASP.NET vNext, which includes MVC, Web API, and Web Pages frameworks will be merged into one framework, called MVC 6. This new framework removes a lot of overlap between the existing MVC and Web API frameworks. It uses a common set of abstractions for routing, action selection, filters, model binding, and so on. You can use the framework to create both UI (HTML) and web APIs.

How to Render different Layout in ASP.NET MVC

It is very important to understand rendering Layouts in ASP.NET MVC. To understand Layouts Asp.Net MVC, we can consider Layouts are like as Master Pages in Asp.Net Web Forms. That’s why, as Master Pages allow us to maintain consistent look and feel across the ASP.NET Web Forms, Layouts are also help us to maintain consistent look and feel across all the views within your Asp.Net MVC application. Like Master Pages, Layout may contain common CSS, jQuery files across the multiple Views and one or more placeholders for which Views provide content. You must read the article to understand layout and its components Layouts, RenderBody, RenderSection and RenderPage in ASP.NET MVC.

Exploring Layouts, RenderBody, RenderSection and RenderPage in ASP.NET MVC

One of the major requirements for our web application is to maintain a consistent look and feel across all of the pages within your web-site/application. ASP.NET 2.0 introduced the concept of “Master Pages” which helps enable this when using .aspx based pages or templates. To achieve this concept in ASP.NET MVC application, Razor View Engine supports this concept with a feature called “layouts”- which allow us to define a common site template, and then inherit its look and feel across all the views/pages on our site. Following code sample show the basic structure of Layout.cshtml file.

Understanding ASP.NET MVC Filters and Attributes

ASP.NET MVC Filters allow us to inject extra logic into MVC Framework request processing, this logic either before or after an action is executed. They provide a simple and elegant way to implement cross-cutting concerns. This term refers to functionality that is used all over an application and doesn’t fit neatly into any one place, where it would break the separation of concerns pattern. Classic examples of cross-cutting concerns are logging, authorization, and caching. In this article, I will show you the different categories of filters that the MVC Framework supports, how to create and use filters, and how to control their execution. We can make your own custom filters or attributes either by implementing ASP.NET MVC filter interface or by inheriting and overriding methods of ASP.NET MVC filter attribute class if available.

Understanding Model Binding in ASP.NET MVC with Example

A view can display a form that has fields such as text boxes, check boxes, radio buttons, and so forth, and a submit button. When the user submits the form, the information in the fields is sent to the controller.ASP.NET uses an HttpRequest object to handle requests. Information coming in the request is stored in different collection objects depending on how the request was sent and the type of information. For example, if the request was sent via HTTP GET, such as http://www.DotNet-Tutorial.com/page?id=1&v=true, then the values for the parameters id and v are stored in the HttpRequest.QueryString collection. If the request is sent using HTTP POST, then the values are stored in the HttpRequest.Form collection. Uploaded files are stored in the HttpRequest.Files collection. If the request is based on a route, then the values are stored in the RouteData.Values dictionary.

Attributes in Routing in ASP.NET MVC with example:

Routing in Asp.NET MVC is how ASP.NET MVC matches a URI to an action. ASP.NET routing enables you to use URLs that do not have to map to specific files in a Web site. Because the URL does not have to map to a file, you can use URLs that are descriptive of the user's action and therefore are more easily understood by users. You can find more details about ASP.NET MVC Routing in separate articles. Here, I am going to discuss about Attributes in Routing in ASP.NET MVC.Now, you are able to know what following code says.
