ASP.NET MVC & jQuery UI autocomplete - Stuart Leeks

If you get me started talking about ASP.NET MVC then it is quite possible that I’ll end up talking about Progressive Enhancement or Unobtrusive JavaScript.

ASP.NET MVC & jQuery UI autocomplete Part 2 (EditorFor) - UK Premier Support for Developers.

ASP.NET MVC: Supplying HTML attributes with EditorFor - Stuart Leeks. My colleague Simon Ince and I recently discovered that we had been working on the same problem independently so we combined our efforts and have written a joint blog post on our team blog.

ASP.NET MVC: Supplying HTML attributes with EditorFor - Stuart Leeks

The problem was something that I’d encountered in a number of blog posts that used modified editor templates (jQuery UI datepicker, aria-required and autocomplete). In each of these posts I ended up adding a custom template, and then updating it to output an attribute in the rendered HTML. The thing that bothered me about all of these posts is that they didn’t compose well. For example, if you wanted to combine autocomplete and aria-required then you’d have to merge the changes to the templates.

Model Binding To A List

Using the DefaultModelBinder in ASP.NET MVC, you can bind submitted form values to arguments of an action method. But what if that argument is a collection? Can you bind a posted form to an ICollection<T>? Sure thing! It’s really easy if you’re posting a bunch of primitive types. Public ActionResult UpdateInts(ICollection<int> ints) { return View(ints);} You can bind to that by simply submitting a bunch of form fields each having the same name. If you were to take fiddler and look at what data actually gets posted when clicking the submit button, you’d see the following. ints=1&ints=4&ints=2&ints=8 The default model binder sees all these name/value pairs with the same name and converts that to a collection with the key ints, which is then matched up with the ints parameter to your action method.

Rendering ASP.NET MVC Views to String. It's not uncommon in my applications that I require longish text output that does not have to be rendered into the HTTP output stream. The most common scenario I have for 'template driven' non-Web text is for emails of all sorts. Logon confirmations and verifications, email confirmations for things like orders, status updates or scheduler notifications - all of which require merged text output both within and sometimes outside of Web applications.

On other occasions I also need to capture the output from certain views for logging purposes. <% %> in ASP.NET (embedded code blocks) Embedded Code and Inline Server Tags - Ahmed Moosa.
