Updating archives model
Whilst the sample add-in that I've published at that time renamed the root folder in a simple and efficient way, it wasn't possible to change the Account name, for which reason Outlook users were seeing their old SMTP address in the Mail From field in Outlook which seemed to cause a lot of confusion.
To address that, I have written a sample application that updates both the Account name and the root folder display name.
In today's post we'll look at how Model Binding improves the data-binding experience when updating data.
Let's start with the Grid View sample from the previous post, configured to use Model Binding to show some data from the Northwind Products table.
Get ready for a big change to how we install updates for Windows 7 and 8.1.
If you receive updates via windows update, your 7 and 8.1 updates are going to a cumulative 10 model.
The software supports the full cycle of data acquisition, storage, cataloguing and exporting, and ultimately downloading data to a workstation.
This is the fifth in a series of blog posts I'm doing on ASP. Model Binding is an extension of the existing data-binding system in ASP.
NET and Visual Studio include a ton of great new features and capabilities. NET 4.5 you'll see a bunch of really nice improvements with both Web Forms and MVC - as well as in the core ASP. Today's post is the third of three posts in the series that talk about the new Model Binding support coming to Web Forms.
The Grid View calls the configured Get Products method, which in turn is using Entity Framework Code First to simply return the Products property on my Northwind data context instance.
It's important that the Data Key Names property is set to the primary key (or keys) of the model type, so that the Grid View can round-trip this value with the page between the browser and server.It's no coincidence that many of the most popular web programming frameworks also encapsulate MVC principles: Django, Ruby on Rails, Cake PHP, Struts, and so forth. The model is any of the logic or the database or any of the data itself.
