May 30th Links: ASP.NET, AJAX, ASP.NET MVC, Visual Studio

Here is the latest in my link-listing series.  Also check out my ASP.NET Tips, Tricks and Tutorials page and Silverlight Tutorials page for links to popular articles I've done myself in the past. 

You can also now follow me on twitter (@scottgu) where I also post links and small posts.

ASP.NET

AJAX

  • Automatically Minify and Combine JavaScript in Visual Studio: Dave Ward has a great article that describes how you can add a build command to Visual Studio that enables you to automatically compress and combine client-side JavaScript files.  This makes your pages load faster on the client and improves the perceived performance of your sites.

  • Client-side Data Binding in ASP.NET AJAX 4.0: Fritz Onion has a great article about the new client-side templating features of ASP.NET AJAX 4.0 (which you can download and use today in .NET 3.5 projects).  This enables powerful client data-binding scenarios against JSON based data.  Also check out Politian’s Blog to find some great tutorials on how to use it.

ASP.NET MVC

  • Visual Studio NUnit Templates for ASP.NET MVC: The VS Web Tools team has released updated NUnit templates that work with ASP.NET MVC 1.0.  This enables you to automatically create a test project that uses NUnit instead of MSTest when you do a File->New Project and select the ASP.NET MVC 1.0 Project item.

  • Custom Route Constraints in ASP.NET MVC: Keyvan Nayyeriu has a nice post that discusses how to create a custom route constraint in ASP.NET MVC (one of the extensibility points in Simone’s list above).  You can use these to control whether a route rule is used or not, and they can enable some pretty rich routing scenarios.  Note that in addition to creating route constraint classes, ASP.NET MVC also supports using Regular Expressions and HTTP Method filters to constrain routes as well. Keyvan is the co-author with Simone of the Beginning ASP.NET MVC Book (free chapter available).

Visual Studio

Hope this helps,

Scott

Hi,

Can you give me any reference that describes how to integrate APS.NET MVC with a report generating software system such as SQL Server Reporting Services, Crystal Reports, ActiveReports or LogiXML?

Do you know any report generator that offers the following output formats and that can be easily integrated with ASP.NET MVC Views? (Excel, Pdf, CSV, XML, Tiff, Word)

Thanks,
