Earlier, I posted about creating an Angular 4 app with VS 2017 and also posted a guide to upgrade an Angular 4 app to Angular 5 with VS 2017. Now you can also create Angular 5 app with Visual Studio 2017, without installing any third-party extensions or templates. This post talks about how to create an Angular 5 App with Visual Studio 2017 and how to extend it with a simple example. (more…)
Earlier I posted about new features of .NET Core 2.1 and a quick summary of what’s new in ASP.NET Core 2.1, Yesterday ASP.NET Core 2.1 preview was released and available for everyone to play with. So I installed it and here is a quick first look at ASP.NET Core 2.1 preview-1 release. In this post, only a few new features are covered.
This is in continuation of the Part-1 solution to transfer SQL Server Database data to MySQL Database using .NET Core. If you have not read the first post, please go through it. To give you an overview, the part-1 solution gets all the SQL server database data and creates a serialized and compressed version of a dataset. The part-2 or final solution downloads the compressed file and populates the MySQL database. Let’s see how this is achieved.
Transferring one database data to other databases is not challenging when source and destination database type is same. It becomes a nightmare when source and destination database types are different. To save you from this nightmare, there are plenty of products available for data transfer between different types of databases. But, these tools come with a very high price. I also got into a similar problem and thought of buying one of the products. As you know in a typical software company, buying a licensed product is a time-taking process that requires lots of approvals and justifications. While the process was on, an idea struck and got the solution to transfer SQL Server Database data to MySQL Database using .NET Core. (more…)
Earlier I posted about new features of .NET Core 2.1 having screenshots and video links from the official announcement.

The ASP.NET Core Session object has 3 methods to set the session value, which are
Set method accepts a byte array as an argument where the
SetString method are the extension methods of the
Set method. These methods internally cast the int or string to a byte array. Similar to these, there are 3 methods used to retrieve the value from the session:
GetString. There is no method available to store complex objects in session, and this post shows how to store complex objects in ASP.NET Core Session. (more…)
A ModelState is a collection of name and value pairs submitted to the server during a POST request. It also contains a collection of error messages for each value. The Modelstate represents validation errors in submitted HTML form values. Model validation is the first statement in each controller action method to check for any error before moving forward. A familiar piece of code.
IsValid property will be true when the values are attached correctly to the model AND no validation rules are broken in the binding process. However, writing this piece of code in every action method increases efforts, lines of code and repetitiveness. It would be appropriate to make model validation a reusable piece or even better would be to automate this process. This post talks about how to validate model state automatically in ASP.NET Core 2.0.
