ASP.NET MVC 5 Hosting - with ASPHostPortal.com :: How to Rendering ASP.NET MVC 1.0, 2.0 RC, 3 and 4 Razor Views to String

clock March 14, 2014 07:44 by author Diego

The ASP.NET MVC Razor implementation is closely tied to ASP.NET and MVC and the View template (WebViewPage class) includes a few MVC-specific features as well as back references to the controller. In other words MVC Razor is designed with MVC in mind. With Razor, you can create a custom Razor Engine that can be used in any .NET environment. Razor is the best view engine available for MVC as its much cleaner and easy to write and read. This view engine is compatible with unit testing frameworks. In this article, I will demonstrate how you can render ASP.NET MVC Razor Views in ASP.Net MVC 1.0, 2.0 RC, 3 and 4 .
Basically, all you do is create a fake HttpContext for the view to render itself.  This is an extensions method of the HtmlHelper that processes a partial view through the default MVC view engine and then renders it to the response stream.

Thisworks on ASP.NET MVC 1.0 (changing Headers on the original HttpResponse doesn't throwthe "Server cannot set content type after HTTP headers have been sent"exception).
/// <summary>Renders a view to string.</summary>
public static string RenderViewToString(this Controller controller, string viewName, object viewData) {


Create memory writer.

var sb = new StringBuilder();
var memWriter = new StringWriter(sb);


Create fake http context to render the view.

    var fakeResponse = new HttpResponse(memWriter);
    var fakeContext = new HttpContext(HttpContext.Current.Request, fakeResponse);
    var fakeControllerContext = new ControllerContext(
        new HttpContextWrapper(fakeContext),
        controller.ControllerContext.RouteData,
        controller.ControllerContext.Controller);
    var oldContext = HttpContext.Current;
    HttpContext.Current = fakeContext;
  Use HtmlHelper to render partial view to fake context.
    var html = new HtmlHelper(new ViewContext(fakeControllerContext,
        new FakeView(), new ViewDataDictionary(), new TempDataDictionary()),
        new ViewPage());
    html.RenderPartial(viewName, viewData);
Restore context.
    HttpContext.Current = oldContext;  
    //Flush memory and return output
    memWriter.Flush();
    return sb.ToString();}
Fake IView implementation used to instantiate an HtmlHelper.
public class FakeView : IView {
    #region IView Members
    public void Render(ViewContext viewContext, System.IO.TextWriter writer) {
        throw new NotImplementedException();
    }    #endregion
}

In ASP.NET MVC 2.0 RC, the code changes a bit because we have to pass in the StringWriter used to write the view into the ViewContext:
Use HtmlHelper to render partial view to fake context.

//...
var html = new HtmlHelper(
    new ViewContext(fakeControllerContext, new FakeView(),
        new ViewDataDictionary(), new TempDataDictionary(), memWriter),
    new ViewPage());
html.RenderPartial(viewName, viewData);
//...

In MVC 3 you can used this code :
public static string RazorRender(Controller context, string DefaultAction)
{
string Cache = string.Empty;
System.Text.StringBuilder sb = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
System.IO.TextWriter tw = new System.IO.StringWriter(sb);
RazorView view_ = new RazorView(context.ControllerContext, DefaultAction, null, false, null);
view_.Render(new ViewContext(context.ControllerContext, view_, new ViewDataDictionary(), new TempDataDictionary(), tw), tw);
Cache = sb.ToString();
return Cache;
}
public static string RenderRazorViewToString(string viewName, object model)
        {
ViewData.Model = model;
using (var sw = new StringWriter())
            {
var viewResult = ViewEngines.Engines.FindPartialView(ControllerContext, viewName);
var viewContext = new ViewContext(ControllerContext, viewResult.View, ViewData, TempData, sw);
viewResult.View.Render(viewContext, sw);
return sw.GetStringBuilder().ToString();
}
}
public static class HtmlHelperExtensions
        {
public static string RenderPartialToString(ControllerContext context, string partialViewName, ViewDataDictionary viewData, TempDataDictionary tempData)
            {
ViewEngineResult result = ViewEngines.Engines.FindPartialView(context, partialViewName);
if (result.View != null)
                {
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
using (StringWriter sw = new StringWriter(sb))
                    {
using (HtmlTextWriter output = new HtmlTextWriter(sw))
                        {
ViewContext viewContext = new ViewContext(context, result.View, viewData, tempData, output);
result.View.Render(viewContext, output);
}
}
return sb.ToString();

}
return String.Empty;
            }
        }

This code worked in MVC 4 :
public string RenderRazorViewToString(string viewName, object model) {
    ViewData.Model = model;
    using (var sw = new StringWriter()) {
        var viewResult = ViewEngines.Engines.FindPartialView(ControllerContext, viewName);
        var viewContext = new ViewContext(ControllerContext, viewResult.View, ViewData, TempData, sw);
        viewResult.View.Render(viewContext, sw);
        viewResult.ViewEngine.ReleaseView(ControllerContext, viewResult.View);
        return sw.GetStringBuilder().ToString();
    }
}

ASP.NET MVC 5 Hosting - with ASPHostPortal.com :: What are Differences ViewBag, ViewData and TempData in Asp.Net MVC 5 ?

clock March 12, 2014 05:49 by author Diego

In Asp.Net MVC 5 (Model-View-Controller) there are three options ViewBag, ViewData, and TempData to pass small amount of data from controller to view. In this article i am going to explain what is ViewBag, ViewData and TempData and their use in Asp.Net MVC 5.

A. ViewData & ViewBag objects.
ViewData
is a dictionary object that you put data into, which then becomes available to the view.It is an in-built dictionary object that is derived from ViewDataDictionary class that can be accessed and set with string type key values. It is a used to pass data from Controller to View. ViewData's value become null if redirection occur because its life lies only during current request.

Key points to remember about ViewData.

  • ViewData is a dictionary of objects that is derived from ViewDataDictionary class and accessible using strings as keys.
  • ViewData requires typecasting for complex data type and it is recommended to check for null values to avoid error.
  • ViewData is used to pass small amount of data from controller to view, so it helps to maintain data when moving from controller to view.
  • ViewData has short life i.e.  Its value becomes null when redirection occurs because its life lies only during current request. This is because the aim of ViewData is to provide a way to transfer/pass data from controllers and views.
  • ViewData is faster than ViewBag.

ViewData Example.
In View:

@ViewData["Name"]

ViewBag is dynamic object, meaning we can add properties to it in the controller, and read them later in the view. Its value becomes null when redirection occurs because its life lies only during current request. This is because the aim of ViewBag is to provide a way to transfer/pass data from controllers and views.

ViewBag Example:
In View:

@ViewBag.Name

Similarities between ViewBag & ViewData :
Both the ViewData and ViewBag objects are great for accessing extra data (i.e., outside the data model), between the controller and view. Since views already expect a specific object as their model, this type of data access to extra data, MVC implements it as a property of both views and controllers, making usage and access to these objects easy. Helps to maintain data when you move from controller to view. Used to pass data from controller to corresponding view. Short life means value becomes null when redirection occurs. This is because their goal is to provide a way to communicate between controllers and views. It’s a communication mechanism within the server call.

Difference between ViewBag & ViewData:

  • ViewData is a dictionary of objects that is derived from ViewDataDictionary class and accessible using strings as keys.
  • ViewBag is a dynamic property that takes advantage of the new dynamic features in C# 4.0.
  • ViewData requires typecasting for complex data type and check for null values to avoid error.
  • ViewBag doesn’t require typecasting for complex data type.

B. TempData Object.The problem with the ViewData and ViewBag for transferring data from controller to view is that the data is only alive for current request. The data is lost if a redirection takes place i.e. if one Action redirects to another action. But when we need to persist the data between actions/redirection then asp.net MVC offers another dictionary object called TempData for that purpose. It is derived from TempDataDictionary and created on top of session. It will live till the redirected view is fully loaded. “TempData”  Helps to maintain data when you move from one controller to other controller or from one action to other action.The benefit is that if you have a chain of multiple redirections it won’t cause TempData to be emptied the values will still be there until you actually use them, then they clear up after themselves automatically.

When to use TempData in ASP.NET MVC ?
Example condition :

I came across this problem where I had a basic list of items and for each if these items I wanted to add a delete action on my controller. I wanted to add some error checking around the delete action so if someone attempted to modify the URL and enter a incorrect parameter into my controller, I wanted to redirect back to the previous controller and notify the user of this mistake. Take this example. I have a Product Controller and the Index Action and View lists all of the products. I have a delete action on the Product Controller which checks if the productId parameter is valid and then removes the product and redirects to the Index action using the RedirectToAction method.

The solution :
When validating the productId, if its NOT valid simply add a new key/value to the TempData object and call the RedirectToAction method. TempData stores data for short periods of time for the current and next HTTP request. In your index view, you can check to see if your key/value pair exists and display a error message. If you refresh the page, you will notice the data from the TempData will be gone. Remember to use RedirectToAction where possible as this is more friendly with Unit Testing rather than using the HttpResponse redirect method.

I hope you have got what is ViewBag, ViewData and TempData in Asp.Net MVC and I hope you will refer this article for your need. Stay tuned and stay connected for more technical updates.



ASP.NET MVC 5.1.1 Hosting with ASPHostPortal.com :: Difference between ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC

clock March 5, 2014 09:53 by author Kenny

Now I wiil expose the main difference between ASP.NET Web Form and ASP.NET MVC.
ASP.NET Web Forms is a part of the ASP.NET web application framework. Web Forms are pages that your users request through their browser and that form the user interface (UI) that give your web applications their look and feel. These pages are written using a combination of HTML, server controls, and server code. When users request a page, it is compiled and executed on the server, and then it generates the HTML markup that the browser can render. Using Visual Studio, you can create ASP.NET Web Forms using a powerful IDE. For example, this lets you drag and drop server controls to lay out your Web Forms page. You can then easily set properties, methods, and events for controls or for the page in order to define the page's behavior, look and feel, and so on. To write server code to handle the logic for the page, you can use a .NET language like Visual Basic or C#.

Based on ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC allows software developers to build a web application as a composition of three roles: Model, View and Controller. A model represents the state of a particular aspect of the application. A controller handles interactions and updates the model to reflect a change in state of the application, and then passes information to the view. A view accepts necessary information from the controller and renders a user interface to display that information.
ASP.NET developers have two options when building new Web projects: ASP.NET Web Forms or ASP.NET MVC framework.
There are the different
between ASP.NET Web Form and ASP.NET MVC:



ASP.Net Hosting – ASPHostPortal.com :: Adding Email Confirmation to ASP.NET Identity in MVC 5

clock February 19, 2014 09:14 by author Diego

One of the mainline features about ASP.NET Identity is to make it easy to Adding Email Confirmation. This process will send an email to the user with a link they can click on to confirm their registration and log in to the system. Prior to confirmation they will not be able to log in.

 

This post shows how you can adding email confirmation to ASP.NET Identity in MVC 5.

First I started by creating a new MVC 5 application.  You no longer select whether you want an Internet or Intranet application, you just select the MVC template and select the authentication type you want to use. For an Internet type application you select Individual User Accounts.  Once your web application is created open IdentityModels.cs in the Models directory.  You will see a class called ApplicationUser which is analogues to the UserProfile in SimpleMembership.  It is an empty class that inherits from IdentityUser which has these properties.

You must to modify the user information to store a the confirmation token and a flag indicating whether confirmation was completed or not.

Now let’s implement the method in the AccountMembershipService class:

 

Here, we’re setting the confirmationGuid to user. This is the GUID stored in the database that uniquely identifies the user. We then set the verifyUrl to the Verify action on the Account controller – passing the confirmationGuid as the ID parameter. The redirect to the RegisterStepTwo action just displays a view to the user that tells them to look for the email to complete the registration process.

Once the user gets the email they click on the link that will take us back to the controller action RegisterConfirmation. With that configured, when the user clicks the register button, they’ll be sent an email with the confirmation link it, and they’ll be redirected to the confirmation page. If we find a user we set IsConfirmed to true and return true from the method; otherwise we return false. If the user is confirmed they will be able to log in.


That is all there is to setting up email confirmation using ASP.NET Identity in MVC 5.
Thanks.

ASP.NET MVC 5 Hosting :: Customizing ASP.NET MVC 5/Web API 2 Scaffolding Templates in Visual Studio 2013

clock January 20, 2014 17:25 by author Mike

In this article, I showed you how you can easily customize the default code generation(scaffolding) templates in ASP.NET MVC 5 and ASP.NET Web API 2 using Visual Studio 2013.

Scaffolding in ASP.NET allows you to automatically generate code in web application. This make it easy to quickly add boilerplate code in your application. There is a nice introduction of scaffolding in ASP.NET application using Visual Studio 2013 at here. The default templates are good for a lot of cases, but sometimes you want to customize these scaffolding templates for all your applications and sometimes you need to use different scaffolding templates in different projects. In this article, I will show you how to customize the default scaffolding t4 templates in ASP.NET MVC 5 and ASP.NET Web API 2 globally and per project.

Description:

If you need to customize the scaffold templates globally then just navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\Microsoft\Web\Mvc\Scaffolding\Templates(depending upon where Visual studio reside),

In the above explorer, you can globally update the t4 templates of ASP.NET MVC 5 and ASP.NET Web API 2.

Now for per project base, just create a CodeTemplates folder in your application root and paste the above folders inside CodeTemplates folder,

Hopefully this article useful for someone.



ASP.NET MVC 5 Hosting - ASPHostPortal.com :: How to create Default User Roles in ASP.NET MVC 5

clock January 15, 2014 07:02 by author Ben

ASP.NET MVC 5 is the latest update to Microsoft's popular MVC (Model-View-Controller) technology - an established web application framework. MVC enables developers to build dynamic, data-driven web sites. MVC 5 adds sophisticated features like single page applications, mobile optimization, adaptive rendering, and more.

In this article, We'll look into how to create default user roles in ASP.NET MVC 5. Let's begin by establishing where the user role is assigned, and that is the registration stage. In the default template, you have the AccountController that contains a Register action. The default implementation looks like this:

[HttpPost]
[AllowAnonymous]
[ValidateAntiForgeryToken]
public ActionResult Register(RegisterModel model)
{
    if (ModelState.IsValid)
    {
        // Attempt to register the user
        try
        {
            WebSecurity.CreateUserAndAccount(model.UserName, model.Password);
            WebSecurity.Login(model.UserName, model.Password);
            return RedirectToAction("Index", "Home");
        }
        catch (MembershipCreateUserException e)
        {
            ModelState.AddModelError("", ErrorCodeToString(e.StatusCode));
        }
    }
    // If we got this far, something failed, redisplay form
    return View(model);
}


What's missing here is the role assignment, so let's add that. Right after the CreateUserAndAccount call, we can check whether a specific role exists, and if it is - add the registered user to it. In case the role is new, create it.

if (!Roles.RoleExists("Standard"))
    Roles.CreateRole("Standard");
Roles.AddUserToRole(model.UserName, "Standard");


Here I am working with a role called Standard, but obviously you can use another identifier for it. If you open the database that is carrying the app data, you will notice that there are two new tables introduced in the existing context - Roles and UsersInRoles.

As the data skeleton is established, you can now limit content access based on roles. In views, you could use the Authorize attribute:

[Authorize(Roles = "Admin")]

Or you could check for the role directly:


@if (Roles.GetRolesForUser().Contains("Admin"))
{
}

ASP.NET MVC 4.0 Hosting with ASPHostPortal :: How To Save Email from External Login in ASP.NET MVC 4.0 with SimpleMembership

clock January 9, 2014 06:16 by author Ben

ASP.NET MVC 4 web application allows users to log in from an external provider, such as Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft or Google and then integrate into your web application. Some OAuth/OpenId providers like Facebook, Google allow to access email. This article explains how to save the email in your database.

Before implementing, first lets consider following points:
1. User name is different from Email.
2. Email might be different for different providers.
3. Email is optional(some external provider like twitter doesn’t allow to access email).

 

Getting Started:
1. Create a new ASP.NET MVC 4 --> Internet Application Project
2. Open App_Start --> AuthConfig.cs, uncomment the external services which you want to use and pass proper parameters. In this article, we will use Facebook,Twitter and Google providers.

OAuthWebSecurity.RegisterTwitterClient(
        consumerKey: "xxxx",
        consumerSecret: "xxxxxxxx");
    OAuthWebSecurity.RegisterFacebookClient(
        appId: "yyyy",
        appSecret: "yyyyyyyy");
    OAuthWebSecurity.RegisterGoogleClient();


3. In Account Model, add Email property in RegisterExternalLoginModel class:

public class RegisterExternalLoginModel
   {
       [Required]
       [Display(Name = "User name")]
       public string UserName { get; set; }
       public string ExternalLoginData { get; set; }
       public string Email { get; set; }
   }

4. To add Email field in OAuthMembership table, add following class:

[Table("webpages_OAuthMembership")]
   public class OAuthMembership
   {
       [Key, Column(Order = 0), StringLength(30)]
       public string Provider { get; set; }
       [Key, Column(Order = 1), StringLength(100)]
       public string ProviderUserId { get; set; }
       public int UserId { get; set; }
       [StringLength(100)]
       public string Email { get; set; }
   }


5. add OAuthMembership in Userscontext

public class UsersContext : DbContext
    {
        public UsersContext()
            : base("DefaultConnection")
        {
        }
        public DbSet<UserProfile> UserProfiles { get; set; }
        public DbSet<OAuthMembership> OAuthMemberships { get; set; }
    }

It will create the required structure in database when you run the application and open register page first time.

Controller Changes:
In AccountController, To set email from the external provider, replace the following lines in ExternalLoginCallback method :

// User is new, ask for their desired membership name
string loginData = OAuthWebSecurity.SerializeProviderUserId(result.Provider, result.ProviderUserId);
ViewBag.ProviderDisplayName = OAuthWebSecurity.GetOAuthClientData(result.Provider).DisplayName;ViewBag.ReturnUrl = returnUrl;
return View("ExternalLoginConfirmation", new RegisterExternalLoginModel { UserName = result.UserName, ExternalLoginData = loginData });


with the following lines:

// User is new, ask for their desired membership name
               string loginData = OAuthWebSecurity.SerializeProviderUserId(result.Provider, result.ProviderUserId);
               ViewBag.ProviderDisplayName = OAuthWebSecurity.GetOAuthClientData(result.Provider).DisplayName;
               ViewBag.ReturnUrl = returnUrl;
               var model = new RegisterExternalLoginModel { UserName = result.UserName, ExternalLoginData = loginData };
               switch (result.Provider) {
                   case "facebook":
                   case "google":
                       {
                           model.Email = result.UserName;
                           model.UserName = "";
                           break;
                       }
                   case "twitter":
                       {
                           model.Email = "";
                           model.UserName = result.UserName;
                           break;
                       }
                   default:
                       break;
               }
               return View("ExternalLoginConfirmation", model);

Facebook and Google provide email as user name, so email is assigned for these providers.

In ExternalLoginConfirmation view, add following Email in form:

@Html.HiddenFor(m => m.Email)

It will post Email also when form is submitted. In ExternalLoginConfirmation method, To save email for new user,replace the following lines:

// Insert name into the profile table
            db.UserProfiles.Add(new UserProfile { UserName = model.UserName });
            db.SaveChanges();
            OAuthWebSecurity.CreateOrUpdateAccount(provider, providerUserId, model.UserName);
            OAuthWebSecurity.Login(provider, providerUserId, createPersistentCookie: false);
            return RedirectToLocal(returnUrl);

with these lines:

// Insert name into the profile table
                       user = new UserProfile { UserName = model.UserName };
                       db.UserProfiles.Add(user);
                       db.SaveChanges();
                       OAuthWebSecurity.CreateOrUpdateAccount(provider, providerUserId, model.UserName);                                           
                       if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(model.Email)) {
                           var oauthItem = db.OAuthMemberships.FirstOrDefault(x => x.Provider == provider && x.ProviderUserId == providerUserId && x.UserId == user.UserId);
                           if (oauthItem != null) {
                               oauthItem.Email = model.Email;
                               db.SaveChanges();
                           }
                       }
                       OAuthWebSecurity.Login(provider, providerUserId, createPersistentCookie: false);
                       return RedirectToLocal(returnUrl);

This will save email in database for new user. Now if same user wants to add other external provider then in ExternalLoginCallback method, replace following line

OAuthWebSecurity.CreateOrUpdateAccount(result.Provider, result.ProviderUserId, User.Identity.Name);

with following lines:

OAuthWebSecurity.CreateOrUpdateAccount(result.Provider, result.ProviderUserId, User.Identity.Name);
               if (result.Provider == "facebook" || result.Provider == "google")
               {
                   using (UsersContext db = new UsersContext())
                   {
                       UserProfile user = db.UserProfiles.FirstOrDefault(u => u.UserName.ToLower() == User.Identity.Name);                     
                       if (user != null)
                       {                         
                               var oauthItem = db.OAuthMemberships.FirstOrDefault(x => x.Provider == result.Provider && x.ProviderUserId == result.ProviderUserId && x.UserId == user.UserId);
                               if (oauthItem != null)
                               {
                                   oauthItem.Email = result.UserName;
                                   db.SaveChanges();
                               }                         
                       }
                   }
               }

Free, Best and Reliable Entity Framework 6 Hosting with ASPHostPortal.com

clock December 11, 2013 05:21 by author William

Entity Framework is actively developed by the Entity Framework team which is assigned to the Microsoft Open Tech Hub and in collaboration with a community of open source developers. Together we are dedicated to creating the best possible data access experience for .NET developers.
The Entity Framework version 6 Release Candidate is now available to developers for immediate download. The open source object-relational mapper is designed to enable .NET developers to work with relational data using domain-specific objects. Entity Framework allows programmers to create a model by writing code or using boxes and lines in the EF Designer. Both of these approaches can be used to target an existing database or create a new database.

There are The Top features of Entity Framework 6 :

  • Connection Resiliency - enables automatic recovery from transient connection failures.
  • Async Query and Save - dds support for the task-based asynchronous patterns that were introduced in .NET 4.5. With .NET 4.5 Microsoft introduced async and await keywords but in EF 5 Microsoft didn't have time to add support for async query and save but now with EF6 it is supported.
  • Code-Based Configuration - gives you the option of performing configuration - that was traditionally performed in a config file - in code.
  • Dependency Resolution - introduces support for the Service Locator pattern and we’ve factored out some pieces of functionality that can be replaced with custom implementations.
  • Interception/SQL logging - provides low-level building blocks for interception of EF operations with simple SQL logging built on top.
  • Testability improvements - make it easier to create test doubles for DbContext and DbSet.
  • Features that come for free - These are capabilities that are part of the core. You don’t even have to know they’re there to benefit from them, much less learn any new coding. This group includes features such as performance gains brought by a rewritten view-generation engine and query compilation modifications, stability granted by the ability of DbContext to use an already open connection, and a changed database setting for SQL Server databases created by Entity Framework.

Cheap ASP.NET 4.5 Hosting

We’re a company that works differently to most. Value is what we output and help our customers achieve, not how much money we put in the bank. It’s not because we are altruistic. It’s based on an even simpler principle. "Do good things, and good things will come to you".

Success for us is something that is continually experienced, not something that is reached. For us it is all about the experience – more than the journey. Life is a continual experience. We see the Internet as being an incredible amplifier to the experience of life for all of us. It can help humanity come together to explode in knowledge exploration and discussion. It is continual enlightenment of new ideas, experiences, and passions
