Introduction to Mark-Up Language: Asp.Net Razor

Razor, mostly used language in Asp.Net MVC, is not a programming language but it is a server-side mark up language. It is basically used to let the programmer embed server based code in to web pages.

By running on the server-side, Razor code can perform complex tasks including database accessing. Server executes this code inside the page before returning to the browser at the time of calling a particular page. The main advantage of this markup language is, it supports c sharp (C#) as well as visual basic (VB).

Here are some rules/instructions to be follow when writing razor language with c#:

  • Declarations of variables/functions will start with @
  • Code blocks are enclosed in @ {... }
  • Statements will end with semicolon (;)
  • Remember c# code is case sensitive
  • Comments can be written within @* ...... *@

Following line of code will explain you a brief knowledge about razor syntaxes:

@* Commented Section
Below are some line of code which will use two variables declared in razor and then use them to show title and description of the page.

    var title = "This is this page's title";
    var description = "The description about this page";

    <p>Title: @title</p>
    <p>Description: @description</p>

<!-- Comments can also be written like this -->

The first block of code is used for commented lines as written as heading. Second block is used to declare two array i.e. title and description that can be used further in the code. The last code is html code and simple div and p tag are placed there to write the values of above declared variables.

Razor provides mostly all the server-side objects with all these methods they can have. To show current date/time razor syntax will be:

    Today Date:  @DateTime.Today 
    Time:  @DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay

There are many more we have to learn about razor syntax like variables, conditional statements, looping constructs etc.

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 …
