ASP.Net MVC - Multiple Models in Single View - Part1

In MVC we cannot use multiple model tag on a view. But Many times we need to pass multiple models from controller to view or we want to show data from multiple model on a view. So In this post we will see the different ways to bind or pass the multiple models to single view.

Problem Statement

Lets suppose we have two models Student and Course and we need to show the the list of Students and Courses in a single view.

Below are the model definition for Student and Course
public class Student
{
    public int StudentID { get; set; }
    public string StudentName { get; set; }       
}

public class Course
{
    public int CourseID { get; set; }
    public string CourseName { get; set; }
}

Below is the Repository class which have two method for returning the list of Students and Courses
public class Repository
{
    public static List<student> GetStudents()
    {
          return new List<student>{ new Student() { StudentID = 1, StudentName = "Manish" },
                 new Student() { StudentID = 2, StudentName = "Prashant" },
                 new Student() { StudentID = 3, StudentName = "Deepak" }
                 };
     }
     public static List<course> GetCourses()
     {
          return new List<course> {
                 new Course () {  CourseID = 1, CourseName = "Chemistry"},
                 new Course () {  CourseID = 2, CourseName = "Physics"},
                 new Course () {  CourseID = 3, CourseName = "Math" },
                 new Course () {  CourseID = 4, CourseName = "Computer Science" }
                 };
     }
}

Deserialize XML to C# object

In this post we will see the simple approach to deserialize XML to C# object.

Our XML String


string xmlString = "<Students><Student><Id>1</Id><Name>Manish Dubey</Name></Student><Student><Id>2</Id><Name>Pankaj</Name></Student></Students>";

Create our class


public class Student
{
  public int Id { get; set; }
  public string Name { get; set; }
}

Create XML Serializer and StringReader Object


//First argument is type of object and second argument is root attribute of your XML string/source

  XmlSerializer serializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(List), new XmlRootAttribute("Students"));
  StringReader stringReader = new StringReader(xmlString);;

At last, deserialize XMl to C# object


List studentList = (List)serializer.Deserialize(stringReader);

Output

deseralize-xml-to-c#-object

ASP.Net MVC - Custom Model Binding

custom-model-binding
In last article, we have discussed about what is ASP.NET Model binding and saw a basic introduction to the Model Binder. In this post we will see creating Custom Model Binding in ASP.Net MVC with simple example.

Model Binder in ASP.NET MVC

For model binding MVC uses the following types-

IModelBinder interface - This defines methods that are required for a Model Binder, like the BindModelAsync method. This method is responsible for binding a model to some values using ModelBindingContext

IModelBinderProvider interface - This interface contains methods that enables dynamic implementation of model binding for classes which implement the IModelBinder interface. This is used to manage the custom binder for the type of data posted by the end-user in views.

Creating Custom Model Binder

We creating our custom model binder by implementing the IModelBinder and IModelBinderProvider interfaces. Let see how we will do that.

Note :I have used ASP.Net MVC Core project here.All the codes are in ASP.Net MVC Core.

ASP.Net MVC Model Binding

 Model Binding

Model Binding

What is Model Binding?

Model Binding in ASP.Net MVC maps the data from HTTP request to action method parameters. These parameters may be simple types such as string, integer or they may be complex type. It is a great feature as it relieves developer from writing all the type casting and “HTML-Model mapping code”. The Model binder is capable of retrieving the data from HTML form variables, POSTed variables and files, query string parameters and the values added in the routes.


How model binding works?

When MVC receives HTTP request, it routes the request to a specific action method of a controller. It determines which action method is going to execute based on what is in the route data, then it maps values from the HTTP request to action method’s parameter(s). For ex. Consider the below URL-

http://abc.com/books/edit/2

How To- Load ASP.Net User Control Dynamically Using jQuery and Ajax

Here in this post, I am going to explain how to dynamically load the Asp.Net user control using jQuery and Ajax. For loading the user control we will use the Web Method on server side and call that web method through Ajax call using jQuery.

You can also find my other articles related to C#ASP.Net jQuery, Java Script and SQL Server.

So, lets start the example. In this example I have used one aspx page name Demo.aspx and one user control to load on the aspx page DemoUserControl.ascx.
ASPX Page

<div style="width:350px">
        <table width="100%">
            <tr>
                <td>
                    <asp:Label ID="lblName" runat="server" Font-Bold="true" Text="Name"></asp:Label>
                </td>
                <td>
                    <asp:TextBox ID="txtName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>
                    <asp:Label ID="lblAge" runat="server" Font-Bold="true" Text="Age"></asp:Label>
                </td>
                <td>
                    <asp:TextBox ID="txtAge" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td colspan="2">
                    <asp:Button ID="btnLoadUserControl" runat="server" Text="LoadControl" />
                </td>
            </tr>
        </table>
    </div>
    <fieldset style="width:350px">
        <legend>User Control Content</legend>
        <div id="userControlContent">
        </div>
    </fieldset>

In the above aspx page, there are two TextBoxes for capturing the input and one Button to load the user control and show the enterd value.

C#: Difference between “throw” and “throw ex” in C# .Net Exception

In day to day development, we all are very familiar with Exception  handling. We pretty much all know that we should wrap the code which may cause for any error in try/catch block and do something about error like give a error message to end user. Here I am not going to explain about Exception handling in C#. Instead I am going to talk about a particular aspect of Exception  handling, which is "throw" vs "throw ex".

You can also find my other articles related to C#ASP.Net jQuery, Java Script and SQL Server. I am writing this post because I was asked this question recently in a interview and unfortunately I didn't  know the answer. So I am posting this for those guys who uses "throw" and "throw ex" frequently but don't know the differences (not all,some knows).

Difference between “throw” and “throw ex”

Take a look on the below code snippest-
throw ex throw

try
{
   //Code which fails and raise the error
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
   throw ex;
}

try
{
   //Code which fails and raise the error
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
   throw;
}

How To- Get Query String Value using Java Script

Query String Value using Java Script
