In this post I want to show you how to use jQuery to create an AJAX login screen. I am going to use an ASP.NET MVC application for this demonstration. I will be modifying the small default application that is created when you create a new MVC application. So go ahead and create a new MVC application. I will be walking through the process step by step so when this article is done you will have a working application.

Well we’ve arrived at the last part of our series on ASP.NET MVC. In this post we’ll be looking at Views, ViewData, and HTML Helpers. We’ll be discussing how to call Views from Controllers and how to use HTML Helpers to create your markup.

 

Views In A Nutshell

Suppose we receive the following request; http://yourdomain.com/Task/Show/23. The request would map to the following controller.

   1: public class TaskController : Controller 
   2: { 
   3:     public ActionResult Show() 
   4:     { 
   5:         return View(); 
   6:     } 
   7: }

Hi

 

A while ago Shahar wrote an article about whether WPF Data Binding is Thread safe. Shahar’s findings were that Even if you change a property from a different thread the PropertyChanged event will be called on the UI Thread making Binding Thread Safe.

I have created a Window with 2 TextBlocks, one of them is binded to a Dependency Property and the other is binded to a regular property:

The Window:

   1: <StackPanel>
   2:     <TextBlock Text="{Binding DpTxt}" Width="100" Margin="5"></TextBlock>
   3:     <TextBlock Text="{Binding Txt}" Width="100" Margin="5"></TextBlock>
   4:     <Button Content="Change Text" Margin="5" Click="Button_Click"></Button>
   5: </StackPanel>

Hi

 

Where do you locate your convertors? do you put them in the Window.Resources section? or in the UserControl they are being used for? Neither of these options is good. You should put it in the App.Xaml file and here is why:

Lets look at the following example:

Here is our Window:

   1: <Window x:Class="ConvertorLocation.Window1"
   2:     xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
   3:     xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
   4:         xmlns:my="clr-namespace:ConvertorLocation"
   5:     Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300">
   6:     <Grid>
   7:         <ItemsControl ItemsSource="{Binding}">
   8:             <ItemsControl.ItemTemplate>
   9:                 <DataTemplate>
  10:                     <my:UserControl1></my:UserControl1>
  11:                 </DataTemplate>
  12:             </ItemsControl.ItemTemplate>
  13:         </ItemsControl>
  14:     </Grid>    
  15: </Window>

Hi

 

While working on a complex UI application in WPF I noticed that because I was using DataTemplates both the Xaml and the Code Behind got very messy, that is because if you need to implement some events in the code behind you basically “mix” code from the template and code from the Window, plus you cannot access the elements in the template from the code behind.

Let’s look at the following example:
