      • mutiple scaffolding templates per project

        Hi
        the current scaffolding implementation restrict scaffolding to generators implementing ICodeGenerator
        which are controller and view

        paths and folders are strongly typed in Microsoft.Framework.CodeGenerators.Mvc\Constants.cs

        this implementation is sufficient when I only need a single template for controller and view
        however if i need multiple templates per project I will have to create a separate project to extend ICodeGenerator for new templates and reference them in my web project

        the implementation in previous mvc was folder structure based for defining new templates in customization
        I used to add folders to Templates folder in my project and they would come up in…

          • How to implement membership in azure database

            It'd be great if a detailed tutorial of how to implement membership is added, covering best practices and recommendations since as far as I know, there are many features that azure does not support at the moment.

              Can you be more specific. What would you like added to my Deploy a Secure ASP.NET MVC 5 app with Membership, OAuth, and SQL Database to an Azure Website tutorial?

            • Pls provide a snippet of code on how is possible to extract specific propertie from a claim in the code behind (Homecontroller) usin ACS

              I followed the article at http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/active-directory-dotnet-how-to-use-access-control/ to the lettre, which successfully executes and displays correctly but it does not indicate how to get specific information from the claim such as the nameidentifier or the email. I tried several syntx to get propertie or values for nameidentifier and others but everytime getting a different runtime or compile errors.

                • Document best practice for MVC 6.X server and client side validation.

                  Thank you for your tutorial series Rick I learned lots. In your Movie tutorial, Part 10 Validation, you say to keep things DRY. The example is for a single form-by-form record collection. In many instances we will want inline editing of one or more rows to achieve our targeted productivity; ie through inline table row creation/editing.
                  Validation and data types are defined within a Model. It would be nice to re-use the definitions in, for example, JavaScript inline creation of a table row and know with confidence that the latest techniques/approach/libraries are being used. I follow the various papers available…

                    Do some research in standard domains like finance, insurance, education - their major activities - suggest technologies effectively.
                    For example: In case of stock price, which is more real-time - can we have more SignalR integrated... or similarly long forms of data in insurance.. do you suggest Asp.net or quite independent activities on a web page -prefer MVC...etc

                    • Overriding custom global filters

                      From time to time, I need to override a specific global filter (usually on controller level) for a particular action. As far as I know, there is no elegant way to accomplish this task.

                      By the way, I know there are some override attributes for some standard ASP.NET MVC types like OverrideActionFilters but I need a generic one to use for my own custom written filters.

                      • Bulk Attendance

                        It is very difficult to find demos on single parent with multiple child records. For example, a form that collects family information and then adds several family members in a single form. Another would be to add attendances (in Contoso University) for each class as a single form bulk insert for each student. (taking roll).

                          • ASP.NET MVC 5.2 Attribute routing improvements and Internationalization of routes

                            Attribute routing improvements that come with ver 5.2 are exciting. I've tried it with internationalization structure described in Nadeem Afana's post http://afana.me/post/aspnet-mvc-internationalization.aspx by aplying a route prefix on base class with InheritedRouteAttribute but wasn't able to succed.
                            Something on base class definition like this:
                            [InheritedRoute("{culture}")]

                            I wasn't able to make run example provided in here either:
                            http://www.asp.net/mvc/overview/releases/whats-new-in-aspnet-mvc-52

                            Can someone provide a better example code for such case.

                            Thank you

                                Paging has been requested, you might want to find the top paging request and vote for it.

                              • Why Code First Model instead of Database First

                                Creating tables and refreshing the EDMX is straight forward. Creating table load scripts also is straight forward.

                                For these reasons I do not see the advantages o Code First and the need to learn the additional syntax to seed he tables.

                                The main advantages I see, is unlike Database, First the data annotations can be done when the class (tables) are defined in Entity Frame work.

                                I would like to see an article of pros and cons
                                I would like to see an article explaining the advantages.

                                    Can you create na article that shows how to use Entity Framework Code First and Asp.Net Identity / User roles with SQL Server Compact, SQL Server and MySql simultaneously (in same application) with separared logic?

                                    I'm thinking about use SQL Server Compact to store the users, the SQL Server to store general data for webservices and MySql to store documents (memorandum / html codes / xml tables), images (png / jpeg only) and files (pdf / doc / xls only).

                                    It will cover at least DataAnnotations, EF6, Code First, Fluent API, users management with Identity, blob storage, file upload and…

                                    • add minimum requirements for everything

                                      add minimum requirements for everything on the "home page" of each product, such as web api... PLEASE!!

                                      especially, which versions of visual studio are required - including express! - which version of .net, etc., etc.

                                        • How to create a complex OAuth application with EF DB First

                                          Would be nice to have a complex app, like the MusicStore, but with Simple Authentication splitted in model layer and app layer, with OAuth, Model First db or Code First all that can be usefull for a bit more complex app.
