About the Folders in MVC Web Application in Visual Studio

In Visual Studio, when programmer creates a new MVC 4 Web Application some folders and files added by default. These folders contains Controllers, Models, and Views etc. to be complete MVC framework basis. The following figure shows the solution explorer created by default application:

MVC 4 Solution Explorer in Visual studio


As the name implies, this folder will contains all the data related to our application. In further articles, we will use this folder to add a database (SQL database).


All the files used to start the application are placed in this folder. These files contains AuthConfig, BundleConfig and RouteConfig etc. To specify routes for the application, add some files dynamically may be done by using these files.


Content folder contains themes folder including css files, static files, icons and images used by the application. A default Site.css file is added in this folder that creates standard theme for the application. Programmer can change these themes as per the roles, account by using these folder.


MVC gives all the controller the standard name suffix with “Controller”. The default mvc application have two controller i.e. AccountController and HomeController. These controller have some actions defined, used for redirection of the user. Programmer can add more controllers as per the requirements and any controller have multiple actions discussed later.


Classes represents the application model for your application are defined in this folder. These classes may be used to create validation for the fields entered by the user. We will add some model classes in this folder in later article. It have default model added in the visual studio MVC application.


Pages shown to the user, according to the controller classes are stored in this folder. Related views may be placed in a folder having the same name of controller by which these views relates. Any controller have some standard actions like Index, Create, Edit and Delete. The related views folder have all these views having the same name.
These views may have aspx or razor pages according to the requirement of the programmer.


JavaScript files used by the application are stored in this folder. By default MVC add approx. 15 js files in the folder which are standard java script files. Programmer can also add some new files and use them in the application.

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
