            • ASP.Net Web API CORS

              Although there are plenty of articles available on the Internet on making CORS request, there need an authentic article on design, develop, test and deploy truly CORS enabled ASP.Net Web APIs. We have serious on this, nothing seems working at this moment.

              • Database initializers vs. database migration, and use of Configuration.Seed vs. DropCreateDatabaseAlways.Seed methods

                There are few resources on these topics, I have posted some questions on SO and ASP.NET forums but didn't get any replys. I want to know in which case database initializers works: if the database schema changes from the code (i.e. property added to the entity, deleted or modified) or the database itself changes (i.e. column added, deleted or modified) from the server, or if the data changes (data added, deleted or modified) and still have to use migration along with initializers to handle changes on the database schema. Also if I enabled both initializers and migration in my code,…

                  real life example of parent child one to many relationships in MVC? Your example with checkboxes sucks! I need a one to many form where that the Parent is create, I can create one or more child records that don't already exist. Example, People and Addresses as a person can have several addresses. Oh the example where you pound Edit and Create into the same method and delete all the existing child records and then insert all the of existing records... doesn't cut it.

                      • Please write a tutorial on adding reports to MVC 5

                        At present the only report functionality I can find for MVC is MVC4 with RDLC can you add more tutorials or create one specifically for MVC 5 and so on.

                        • make walk through series for MVC 5 framework ,similar to the 'WingTip toys' (Getting Started with ASP.NET 4.5 ) series done for web forms.

                          There is an excellent tutorial called 'Getting Started with ASP.NET 4.5 Web Forms and Visual Studio 2013'. This tutorial builds an application called 'WingTip Toys'.

                          I would like to see one exactly like this for the MVC 5 framework using ado.net for the data access layer

                              • MVC View Models instead of ViewBag

                                I think it would be an excellent idea if (a) you removed the tutorials teaching the use of VIewBag for things that really should be done by means of a View Model, and (b) to comprehensively teach the use of ViewModels in MVC and ways to think about constructing ViewModels. There are a lot of gotchas and subtleties involved. Here is a specific example (among many other possibilities): if I want to put some Select Lists in Html.BeginForm to filter model content shown in the table, I _should_ have a View Model defined that contains both the Model, the Select…

                                  Database migration of existing database with EF works well on local machine and lots of documents are available but it would nice to have document how to deploy on production server with migration would be good where clients have their own server with the existing database.

                                        • Customizing authentication process in Identity ASP.NET MVC 5.

                                          I want to customize the Identity of ASP.NET and want to merge with my existed database and then creating user using seed method. i do not want that user sign up on my site just pre-defined credential works.
