Create A Reusable Library Using MVC2-RC?

Jan 24, 2010 09:02 PM

I am trying to write a simple library for MVC2 projects that takes care of user login, e-mail validation, password recovery, logging, etc. Since some of these steps involve user interaction, I need to have Views and Controllers in that project.In MVC2 Preview 2, one could do this by abusing areas (at least, it seems) since they were implemented as different projects. However, in the RC, creating a new area will merely create a subfolder. Since I want to share the base code between applications, that is not an option.I tried to brutally hack the AfterBuild steps into my project files, but that feels like the craziest hack ever.


How To Build A Reusable Library Of User Controls

Mar 16, 2010 03:58 PM

I want to build a reusable library of User Controls.

I found this article:


While it works for me, but I find it a bit cumbersome to implement, expecially for future maintenance.Also, I noticed that if you create the User Control with code in separate file, it will not work. In this case, you will not get any error, but, the page where the control in registerted will not show (you will get blank page).Why I am getting BLANK result when I develop the User Control with code in separate file ?I appreciate your recommendation on the best approach to implement a library of Reusable User Controls. Also, I did not like the method of Web Controls, becuase they are difficult to implement.

AJAX :: Create Reusable Tab Control?

Jan 20, 2010 04:19 AM

I have been given the task to create a TAB control ( probably the Jquery tab control) as the company wants the Lazy loading of data.

The tab control should not have fixed items on it. It should be reusable in different projects . So I cannot fix the items in the tab control. Depending upon the project the tabs can change.

Need some great ideas on how I can achieve it.

Note: I am using MVC, VS 2008, C# for my development.

How To Create Reusable "widget" Markup Across Modules In MVC 2.0 Website

Oct 4 10 at 21:20


platform: ASP.NET 4.0, MVC 2.0 (doesn't have to be MVC if it's not the right solution)

Create various widgets that inherit the same core markup:


The above "simplified" example should be in some reusable control or masterpage.

The flow is something like this:

Controller -> View -> Partial View (1..n) -> widget markup

User instantiates an action which calls a controller. The controller tries to render a view that contains content + multiple widgets (left rail, right rail, etc). The Widgets all have their own individual partial views but each partial view should inherit or consume a base set of widget markup and have controller areas where to embed functionality.

Functionality in the head, body, and footer can either be plain text, HTML, or additional custom controls.

What is the best recommended approach?

I am currently developing an application with the new ASP.NET MVC2 framework.

How To Create A Site Like MSDN Library In MOSS

Aug 06, 2009 01:30 PM

I am in the process of creating an inhouse help file on a MOSS portal for my company's department. At the moment I have created a wiki on our department site and am busy filling it up with the necessary information.Feedback which has been most common is that my colleagues would like to have a dynamic treeview to make navigation through the help file a little more manageable. The basic sharepoint treeview does not meet the requirements and upon discovering MSDN library,I was quite intrigued by their treeview.

What I would now like to create would be something similar to the format of MSDN library, but then containing my department's content. Unfortunately I cannot easily find a method of creating such a site and after countless searches of MSDN, and even google I am struggling think of how to tackle the issue.

point me in a direction in which I can start looking on how to achieve the creation of such a site and whether this is possible/feasible or even purchasable? I have access to Sharepoint Server and Designer 2007, but a limited knowledge of programming.

Visual Studio :: LINQ Dynamic Query Library In Class Library

Mar 27, 2008 09:26 AM

I'm having terrible trouble trying to get the LINQ Dynamic Query Library to work in anything other than a web project, where there also exists a Data Context in the same project. So, I've got my website, and class library which contains the .dbml file and the dynamic query code file. When I try an compile this class library, I get errors such as:

Type 'System.Data.Linq.Mapping.DatabaseAttribute' is not defined. Type 'System.Data.IDbConnection' is not defined.Type 'System.Data.Linq.Table' is not defined These errors occur in the desiger.vb file for my data context, and it seems like it's a clash of namespaces or a similar problem. Does anyone have any idea how I can solve this, actually done this, or know if this is possible?

C# - Twitter Api Library / Get The Twitters From Parse Out The New Ones And Use A Library To Retweet Them On Own Account?

Mar 2 10 at 20:51

I am looking at the twitter api page and I noticed that they have already built libraries that are wrappers against the twitter api. So I am thinking this is the best way to go but I am unsure which C# library I should use.

What I am trying to do is make some simple service or cmd line application that will help me automate retweeting.

So I am looking for a library that will allow me to get posts from other twitter accounts and then retweet them from another account.

I am not sure if the library can do this or not. Otherwise I was thinking of getting the RSS feed from the twiter account I want to get the twitters from parse out the new ones and use a library to retweet them on my own account.

I have not used twitter much so I am hopping someone can shed some light on this.

MVC :: Reusable Components And Unique Ids?

Aug 24, 2010 08:26 PM

I'm trying to create reusable "zones" but am having trouble figuring out how to give them all unique ids.What I'd like is to be able to create a component which can be put on an mvc page using the usercontrol syntax or using RenderAction or RenderPartial. I want to be able to update these components' content using ajax, so I need someway to reference them by id. However, there is no mechanism in MVC that wraps anything in a div or something like that.

I've learned that if I extend ViewUserControl and put the controls on the page like so:


This way, I can pass the previous ID and put it in ViewData, in case I need it laterThen, I can even go through all my controls on page load event in the master page and get my unique ID and write somekind of register javascript function to the page so that I can do javascript stuff if I want when the page loads.


Is there a more elegant way to do this? I see similar stuff from 'Areas' but never seen an example where someone has put more than one area on a page and then needed to reference them via javascript. This also seems similar to custom templates, but I'm having trouble figuring out how that would work.

Does anyone know of some good simple examples out there that I can follow, or maybe some examples on here?

Best Approach To Implement Reusable SortedList?

May 08, 2010 01:24 AM

I have a situation where I need to maintain a large number of related integer values in my ASP.Net 3.5 application. The SortedList seems perfect for this purpose. If this were a Windows app I'd just create a class and setup one method to Set values within the SortedList and another one to Get values out of it.

But being a web app, I'm not entirely sure of the best approach to use. Sure, I could just create one method for Set and another for Get but that doesn't seem very "clean".I thought about creating a UserControl without any visual elements but am not sure if that makes sense.How would you go about implementing such a SortedList in your web app?

MVC - To Achieve Reusable User Controls And Maintain DRY?

Dec 31 09 at 0:36

When creating user controls in ASP.NET MVC, what is the best way to structure the code so that the controllers that invoke views that use the user controls do not all have to know so much about the controls? I would like to know a good way to maintain DRY while using user controls in ASP.NET MVC.

Please note, this question only pertain to user controls that require special handling and logic on a postback. I have no problem creating nice DRY code for user controls that are either view only (using RenderPartial) or that require some pre-processing to create the appropriate ViewModel (using RenderAction).

Also, this question pertains only to achieving reusable controls within an application. I am not worried about reusability between applications at this point.

To give a specific example, let's say I would like to create a 'Quick Add' user control which contains three entry fields, First Name, Last Name and Company Name and a submit button. When the QuickAdd functionality is used, the following steps should be performed independent of what page the control is on:

Validate that the fields were not empty, if they are, show an indicator.

Perform a lookup to a repository to see if the Company already exists, if not; create it.

Create a new contact associated to either the existing company or the newly created company
Re-render the existing page. If no validation errors, the user would see the exact same page again, otherwise the same page with validation errors.

My main problem with achieving DRY has to do with all the controllers that invoke views that contain the partial view end up having to have an Action Method to process the form submission from the Quick Add. Even if I break out the logic for processing the information into a separate controller and invoke that method from each of the other controllers it seems like a burden that each and every controller that invoke views that have reusable controls have to have that knowledge.

The other option I looked at was to have the reusable control always submit to a specific action method / controller but then there is no way for that controller to know how to re-populate the model appropriately for the specific controller that invoked the view that contained the reusable control (in step 4).

I am aware that there is talk of subcontrollers in MVC 2 (from this question but since it is not there yet, what is the best way to structure the code to achieve maximum reusability while maintaining DRY?

Is there an alternative to having to have all the controllers that invoke views that use a reusable control (with the characteristics of the one described above), having to have an Action Method to process the information from the control?

Rewriting This Linq Query To Move It From Code-behind To DAL As Reusable Object?

2 days ago

I'm working to move my simple website to a three layer architecture. Currently I have Linq queries like the one below in my code-behind files. Basically this code snippet retrieves a collection of customer data from the database and then binds it to a grid control.

I'm wondering if someone can guide me on how to rewrite this in order to move it to my newly-created data access layer. I'm thinking I will turn it into a class (e.g. GetUserBoxesByStatus()) that can be reused throughout the site.

var boxes = from p in sbm.Packages
where p.UserID == CurrentUserId && p.StatusID > 1 && p.StatusID < 3
select new { p.PackageTag, p.PackageName, p.DateReceived, p.DateShipped }; [code]....

Some of the options that I've investigated but have not had success implementing are the following:

DataTable --- returning a DataTable seems like the best solution but it also appears to require a lot of potentially unecessarry code to define a table (isn't the data source already mapped in my Linq 2 Entities dbml?)

IEneuerable --- I think I could pass an IEnumerable list between the layers but after reading many tutorials about Linq I'm still a little lost DTO --- Conceptually I think I understand what a DTO is but I am not clear on how to begin implementing this approach POCO --- Again, the concept seems logical enough but I don't know how to put this into practice

how they would tackle this using one of the above or some other solution.
