    • Column toggles when sorting by it .

      I am sorting the columns in my tables as the example "Sorting, Filtering and Paging with Entity Framework". Now some of the columns, where I do the sorting are hidden, and one I checked the checkbox they appear so I can sort using these columns as well. I have created a JavaScript with the jQuery function toggle().

      The problem when I want to sort by one of the hidden columns, once is shown and I click on the header, it sorts but the column disappears as well. I know it is sorting because once I click on the checkbox that…

        • Adding a 2nd Table to MVC

          When an MVC project is created with a Model and some class is defined that matches the db Table, trying to add in a 2nd table is so difficult as to be absurd. For example, I have an existing project but have the need to add a reference table to hold names & info for employees and in a dropdown list select a name and the data fills in the associated textboxes in an Edit or Create page. But it appears only one class is allowed because the controller only lets one table be returned. Now other tables can be…

                              There is a tutorial on the asp.net/identity site that shows how to add 1 factor authentication with SMS and Email using a sample project that needs to be downloaded. Can you create a tutorial that uses a existing MVC5 project? So that we don't have to use a sample project and can incorporate the needed functionality into our pre existing app?

                                About documentation of the Entity Framework 6, is necessary apply corrections on the examples of the topics: TPT Inheritance Pattern and TPH Inheritance Pattern.

                                These topics in the code source using the method OfType<>, but this resource is specific of the Entity 5.0 and not is supported on the Entity 6.

                                Therefore it is necessary to correct the samples and remove the use of the method OfType <>. Below, an example of usage corrected:

                                • Create an ASP.NET Identity Lifecycle diagram

                                  The lifecycle diagrams for Web API and MVC requests have been very helpful in determining how to integrate these systems with already existing projects or determining how to leverage all the extensibility options.

                                  A lifecycle diagram showing the entire Identity/Owin process for the various authenticaion types (cookie, 3rd party, 2FA, etc.) could be very informative.

Can you please share/add a scrip that kicks-off the removal of components in Azure as it was very painful to go each time to Azure portal and delete site, DB, storage manually. Beginners can avoid this lengthy and manual task and concentrtae on learning the concepts behind your great article and not mess with unecessary errors

                                    • check connection to a database (realtime with) SIgnalR 2.0

                                      Something that can come in very handy especially in slower and remote connections is to check if your connection to your database is correct.
                                      In an organization, this can be used to monitor multiple APIs and in real time sees whether APIs are in a healthy condition.

                                      • How to use IHttpAsyncHandler in classic asp.net forms and display working message while a csv report is being built

                                        I am looking for an article that demo's the following (ASP.NET Classic Web Forms)
                                        1. User clicks on a asp:hyperlink button
                                        2. A HttpAsyncHandler begins to generate a CSV file(very large)
                                        3. The user gets a modal message telling them their report is generating - most likely using jquery blockUI
                                        4. Once the report is done, the blockedUI message goes away
                                        5. The browser offer the default Save or Open modal.
                                        What I am trying to figure out is how to detect in JavaScript when the hander is done.

                                        • Integrating multple databases into one project.

                                          Creating a project that uses multiple databases on different technologies working together. Perhaps a code first SQL Server working with an existing Oracle database.
