ScottGu, Scott, Phil and Rob have announced a free ASP.NET MVC eBook and an open source ASP.NET MVC application Nerddinner.com. The free eBook is a single chapter of the Wrox’s upcoming title Professional ASP.NET MVC 1.0. The free eBook provides an end-to-end walkthrough of building NerdDinner.com application. The free eBook and the free Nerddinner application are extremely useful if anyone is trying to lean ASP.NET MVC. If you are a beginner to ASP.NET MVC, I highly recommend checking the eBook and the NerdDinner.com application. You can download the NerdDinner.com application from here.
In this tip, I demonstrate how you can add a T4 scaffolding template within the “Add View” dialog of the ASP.NET MVC Framework. I am creating a List scaffolding template for MVCContrib Grid helper component. Earlier, I have blogged about how to use MVCContrib Grid helper component but recently the component has changed a lot and introducing a fluent interface that provides a cleaner and more discoverable API. You can read all details from Jeremy Skinner's blog about the new enhancements of MVCContrib Grid helper component. I am creating the T4 template against the latest trunk of MVCContrib Grid helper.
