Design ASP.NET MVC form using ViewModel class

Welcome, user. Today i would like to share something about Forms and their control like TextBox, Label, DropdownList(SelectListItem), Radio Button etc in ASP.NET MVC. Before going to details, first to share something about ViewModel.
 A ViewModel is a temporary class file which is used to store data values in properties.   
First to take fields which are used in form like UserName, Password, Email, Gender, religions etc. Because we will need controls for each fields. Lets take an simple example. Create a new MVC project.

  1. Right click on your project, Add a new Directory which name should have ViewModel
  2. Add this class file inside the ViewModel

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace MvcApplication1.ViewModel
{
    public class FormVM
    {
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public String UserName { get; set; }
        public String Password { get; set; }
        public String Gender { get; set; }
        public String Religion { get; set; }
        public String Image { get; set; }

        
        public bool IsSubmitted { get; set; }

    }
}

According to the ViewModel class we will take Two TextBox for UserName and Password, Three radio button for Religion, one file control for Image, one DropdownList for Gender and last One Submit control.After add this file, come to controller part. Add a new controller like this.

using MvcApplication1.ViewModel;
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Mvc;

namespace MvcApplication1.Controllers
{
    public class TutorialController : Controller
    {
       public ActionResult AddUser()
        {
            FormVM viewModel = new FormVM();
            viewModel.IsSubmitted = false;
            return View(viewModel);
        }

        [HttpPost]
        public ActionResult AddUser(FormVM model, HttpPostedFileBase file)
        {
            model.IsSubmitted = true;
            if (file != null)
            {
                string pic = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(file.FileName);
                model.Image = pic;
            }
            ViewBag.Values = model.UserName + ", " + model.Password + ", " + model.Gender + ", " + model.Religion + ", " + model.Image;
            return View(model);
        }

    }
}

By above mentioned code AddUser( ) method return a ViewModel class. Also set IsSubmitted property to false. So using ViewModel class you can create a model control into your view class. So i have a view class for you where your control designed. Let see.

@model MvcApplication1.ViewModel.FormVM

@{
    ViewBag.Title = "AddUser";
    List<SelectListItem> listItems = new List<SelectListItem>();
    listItems.Add(new SelectListItem
    {
        Text = "Male",
        Value = "Male",
        Selected = true
    });
    listItems.Add(new SelectListItem
    {
        Text = "Female",
        Value = "Female"
    });
    listItems.Add(new SelectListItem
    {
        Text = "None",
        Value = "None"
    });
}



<h2>AddUser</h2>

@using (Html.BeginForm("AddUser","Tutorial",FormMethod.Post, new { enctype = "multipart/form-data" })) {
    @Html.AntiForgeryToken()
    @Html.ValidationSummary(true)

    <fieldset>
        <legend>FormVM</legend>

        <div class="editor-label">
            @Html.LabelFor(model => model.UserName)
        </div>
        <div class="editor-field">
            @Html.EditorFor(model => model.UserName)
            @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.UserName)
        </div>

        <div class="editor-label">
            @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Password)
        </div>
        <div class="editor-field">
            @Html.PasswordFor(model => model.Password)
            @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.Password)
        </div>

        <div class="editor-label">
            @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Gender)
        </div>
        <div class="editor-field">
           @Html.DropDownListFor(model => model.Gender, listItems, "  Select Gender  ")
        </div>
        <br />
        <div class="editor-label">
            @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Religion)
        </div>
        <br />
        <div class="editor-field">
            @Html.RadioButtonFor(model => model.Religion, "Hindu", new { id = "rbHindu" })
            @Html.Label("Hindu")
            @Html.RadioButtonFor(model => model.Religion, "Muslim", new { id = "rbMuslim" })
            @Html.Label("Muslim")
            @Html.RadioButtonFor(model => model.Religion, "Other", new { id = "rbOther" })
            @Html.Label("Other")
        </div>
        <br/>
        <div class="editor-label">
            @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Image)
        </div>
        <div class="editor-field">
            <input type="file" name="file" id="file" style="width: 100%;" />
            
        </div>

        <p>
            <input type="submit" value="Submit" />
        </p>
    </fieldset>
}

<div>
    @if(Model.IsSubmitted){
        <p>@ViewBag.Values</p>
    }
</div>

Crate form control according to above mentioned code. When we click on Submit button then value of all control will display on paragraph using ViewBag variable. Now code generate the following output:

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 …
