  1. Add SSL termination support for link generation

    The Url.Link() etc. methods create links for the same protocol (http / https) as the request. Often in production, SSL termination occurs at the load balancer, and the web servers get http traffic. As such, the links they generate are http. We can force https, but that requires some trickery. Making dealing with SSL termination at the load balancer simpler would be a welcome addition.

    • Switch the order in which the html helper finds the property when using Editor(propertyName)

      According to this post when using property name in Html Helpers a call to ModelMetadata.FromStringExpression searches the ViewDataDictionary for a key with the propertyName passed in and then searches the model properties.

      http://forums.asp.net/p/1704693/4528090.aspx?Re+How+could+I+create+a+custom+Object+editor+template+in+Razor+MVC+3+

      This breaks things when you have a property named Title in your model and in the ViewBag ... which by default the templates use ViewBag.Title for the page title.

      Please search the model for properties before searching the ViewData

        • Many to Many Scaffolding. Populate code with check-boxes in create and edit views when there's relations between two tables.

          Whenever there are two tables that have many-to-many relationship, (i.e. Students - Teachers) need automatic code creation with scaffolding will allow Create View to show check-boxes within a form, and a controller should be able to save selected check-boxes for that model.

              • Provide PostBackUrl functionality for ASP.NET MVC

                When migrating functionality from ASP.NET Web Forms, one of the difficulties in migrating to ASP.NET MVC is the ability to perform Cross-Page Posting and setting a PostBackUrl to an external Url. In ASP.NET MVC, you can only Redirect to another Urll such as an external Url, but there is no built-in concept of "posting" to another Url that lives outside of the ASP.NET MVC Web Application.

                • Provide Html.CheckboxList and Html.RadioButtonList Helper Methods

                  Provide an @Html.CheckboxList/@Html.RadioButtonList and @Html.CheckboxListFor/@Html.RadioButtonListFor Html Helper methods out-of-the-box with ASP.NET MVC to ease the transitioning from ASP.NET Web Forms to ASP.NET MVC. Having these 2 additional Html Helper methods will significantly reduce development time for the use of CheckboxLists and RadioButtonLists.

                  • Ditch the RAZOR language and use Jquery or some other flavor of javascript in Views.

                    By moving closer to what developers in open source community are using for front-end (javascript libraries) will make ASP.NET MVC more popular and become widely used. Developers need a boilerplate that creates jquery code for Details,Create,Edit, and Delete pages and would allow better customization. Ditch the RAZOR language and use javascript only. Maybe even have boilerplate to create MVVM in Views.

                    • Keyboard shortcut to ViewModel used in a cshtml file, without pressing F12 on Model

                      I've been going back and forth between my view and my model quite a lot lately. Even though this isn't a critical thing, it would be nice to be able to navigate to the model that is being used in the view without going to the top of the page and pressing F12 on the model.

                      • View-first modelling - create new model class on New View dialog

                        Idea: when I add a new View, I enter the name of a Model class that doesn't exist and it gets created.

                        Then I mark my page up and use the VS code-gen tools to build-out the properties I am using in my view - this is already possible.

                        It's just the create new view UI that needs to be able to add a new model class to the project.

                        • In the view context menu, allow custom links

                          On a lot of the pages I develop, I have a .js and a .css file that are specific for that page. It would be really nice if I could, from the view, right click and show links to any of these files.

                          Maybe we could have a directive similar to the @Model. Something like:

                          @Model MyModel
                          @Filelink "~/Scripts/MyScript.js"
                          @Filelink "~/Scripts/MyOtherScript.js", "
                          @Filelink "~/Content/MyCSS.css"

                          When we right click, we would now see new menu options called MyScript.js, MyOtherScript.js and MyCss.css. Clicking on these would open the file. It would be a HUGE time saver.

                          • Allow overriding ID and Name values using Model Binding

                            When using the default Model Binder, there is no way to override the default ID and name value fields created by decorating with additional attributes. For example, when posting values to Authorize.Net, you want to use "friendly" fields in your Model properties such as Sequence, however, Authorize.Net requires the use of fixed fields such as "x_fp_sequence". By being able to override the default ids and values by decorating the Model, this would make the code a lot more manageable and more flexible for dealing with payment engines such as ASP.NET.

                            Thanks.

                            • Provide ability to post ASP.NET MVC Models to external Urls

                              Currently, ASP.NET MVC allows to return other Views in the project or Redirect to other Urls. However, if one wants to "POST" to another Url such as Authorize.Net (which only offers a FORM POST API and not a RESTFUL API), one has to concoct special methods to accomplish this. Instead, it would be much easier if ASP.NET MVC provided the ability to POST entire ASP.NET Models in a Form Post to other Urls such as external Urls for payment engines such as Authorize.Net.

                              • Remove hidden elements for Html.Checkbox and Html.RadioButton

                                When using @Html.Checkbox and @Html.RadioButton or even the @Html.CheckboxFor and @Html.RadioButtonFor elements, a hidden field/element is created alongside these fields when an attribute such as new {@value="myvalue"} is added to the Checkbox or RadioButton element. However, the addition of this hidden element messes ups CSS rendering especially with rendering of jQuery Mobile controls.

                                • Intellisense for anonymous type HtmlAttributes

                                  When typing in Visual Studio to add additional HtmlAttributes in Razor views, there is no Intellisense for anonymous typing of HtmlAttributes such as new {@value="myvalue"}. Instead, when I begin typing new, I immediately get Intellisense for either object {} or Dictionary<string. object> but never for the anonymously typed constructor for adding HtmlAttributes.

                                  • support other content-types in views

                                    I'd like to be able to create views of any HTTP content-type/mime-type. For example, javascript with inline razor syntax.

                                    I can kind of do this today, so we're part-way there - I can create a script.cshtml for a view named "Script" and set the Response.ContentType = "application/javascript". However the syntax highlighting and intellisense is all messed up.

                                    So the ask is either to support other view file extensions with syntax highlighting (eg csjs, cscss ), or make the .cshtml syntax highlighter smart enough to use other markup when the Response.ContentType is set, or support a new @directive to support other…

                                      • Add the donut caching to MVC and make it work with sql dependency

                                        Donut Caching is important to make sure some part of a web page are not cached. But it doesn't work with SQL Dependency .
                                        For example in our website, we have blocs on the right col that must be refresh each time the page is reloaded.
                                        The main col must be refresh only when a new content is published (sql dependency)

                                        • Add DateTimeEditor, ComboBox, Email, FileUpload and PopUp Helpers with callback options and rich Client APIs.

                                          As of now, We dont have option to in razor to input the date and time, since we are using some third party dlls or jQuery datepicker ( dont have time in it. ),

                                          And also we dont have FileUploadHelper to Upload and PopUp Helpers to popup the div.

                                          Finally need a validation on TextBoxFor() Helper to Input only the numbers, Which means it should not allow the Characters if the Model property is a type of long.
