Lab 5: Developing MVC Views

Note: You can perform the tasks in this lab by using either Microsoft Visual C#

or Microsoft Visual
Basic

as your programming language.


Objectives
After completing this lab, you will be able to:
Create a List MVC view.
Create a Details MVC view.
Create a Create MVC view.
Create an Edit MVC view.
Create a Delete MVC view.
Introduction
In this lab, you create MVC views for listing, adding, editing, and deleting blog entries. You use strongly-
typed views, ViewData and TempData to retrieve the data from the controller. Also, you use partial views
to reuse markup that is used on multiple pages.

Lab Instructions: Developing MVC Views 3
Lab Scenario

Based on your recommendations for redesigning the AdventureWorks website, the blog pages need to be
developed by using MVC. You have already created an ADO.NET Entity Data Model to build your MVC
model classes. You have also developed an MVC controller to handle database operations. With the
database access and application logic in place, you now need to create a set of MVC views to render the
UI based on controller actions.

Exercise 1: Modifying a Web Forms Page to Display Localized Content
The main tasks for this exercise are as follows:
Create resource files so that Default.aspx can display the page in English and
language of your choice.
Localize the Site.Master master.
Task 1: Open the AdventureWorks solution in Visual Studio 2010
1. Log on to the 10264A-GEN-DEV virtual machine as Student, with the password, Pa$$w0rd.
2. Open Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
On the Start menu of 10264A-GEN-DEV, point to All Programs, click Microsoft Visual Studio
2010, and then click Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
3. Open the AdventureWorks solution from the following location.
Programming Language Location
Visual C# D:\Lab Files\CS\Lab 07\Starter\Exercise 01
Visual Basic D:\Lab Files\VB\Lab 07\Starter\Exercise 01
Task 2: Create resource files for Default.aspx
1. Analyze the markup in Default.aspx.
2. Generate local resources for Default.aspx, by using the Generate Local Resource functionality
available in Design view.
Note: This automatically creates the App_LocalResources folder in the root of your web
application, if one does not already exist. The process also creates a resource file called
Default.aspx.resx, in the App_LocalResources folder.
3. Switch back to Source view of Default.aspx.
4. Notice that both the lbCategories and btnCategory server controls have had an extra attribute
called meta:resourcekey added to the existing markup.
<asp:Button ... meta:resourcekey="btnCategoryResource1"></asp:Button>
<asp:ListBox ... meta:resourcekey="lbCategoriesResource1"></asp:ListBox>
Note: The values of these attributes are used to find the localized values for the properties of the
localizable controls in the Default.aspx.resx file.
5. Notice that the Page directive at the top of the page now contains the following information.
<%@ Page ... culture="auto" meta:resourcekey="PageResource1" uiculture="auto" %>
6. Open Default.aspx.resx.
Note: In the Resource Editor, you will see a list with all the localizable properties of the localizable
controls from the Default.aspx page.
7. Switch back to Default.aspx.
Lab Instructions: Writing Server-Side Code for Web Forms 5
8. Notice that the text strings Welcome to AdventureWorks! and Product Categories were not
modified, and they were not added to the .resx file either. This is because they were hard-coded in
the Web Forms page.
9. Localize the hard-coded Welcome to AdventureWorks! text implicitly, by adding a Localize server
control within the h2 element, with the following attributes.
Attribute Value
ID lclWelcome
Text Welcome to AdventureWorks!
meta:resourcekey LocalizeResource1

10. Delete the text Welcome to AdventureWorks! from the h2 element.
Note: Make sure that you do not delete the text Welcome to AdventureWorks! from the
Localize server control.
11. Add a resource string named lclWelcomeResource1.Text to the Default.aspx.resx resource file. The
string must have the value of Welcome to AdventureWorks!.
12. Localize the hard-coded Product Categories text explicitly, by adding a Literal server control within
the p element, with the following attributes.
Attribute Value
ID ProductCategoriesLiteral
Text <%$ Resources: ProductCategoriesLiteral.Text %>

13. Delete the text Product Categories from the p element.
Note: Make sure that you do not delete the text Product Categories from the Literal server
control.
14. Add a resource string named ProductCategoriesLiteral.Text to the Default.aspx.resx resource file.
The string must have the value of Product Categories.
15. Run the application.
16. Verify that Default.aspx Web Form looks the same as it did before you modified it.
17. Close Windows

Internet Explorer.
18. Add an existing German resource file for the Default.aspx Web Form to the App_LocalResources
folder. The file is named Default.aspx.de.resx and it is located in the D:\Lab Files\CS\Lab
07\Starter\Exercise 01 or D:\Lab Files\VB\Lab 07\Starter\Exercise 01 folder.
Task 3: Localize the Site.Master master page
1. Open the Site.Master master page.
2. Localize the hard-coded Log In text, by adding a Literal server control within the a element, with the
following attributes.
6 Lab Instructions: Writing Server-Side Code for Web Forms
Attribute Value
ID LoginLiteral
Text Log In
3. Delete the text Log In from the a element.
Note: Make sure that you do not delete the text Log In from the Literal server control.
4. Localize the hard-coded Welcome text, by adding a Literal server control within the
LoggedInTemplate element, with the following attributes.
Attribute Value
ID WelcomeLiteral
Text Welcome
5. Delete the text Welcome from the LoggedInTemplate element.
Note: Make sure that you do not delete the text Welcome from the Literal server control.
6. Open the Site.Master master page in Design view.
7. Generate local resources for Site.Master, by using the Generate Local Resource functionality.
Note: This generates a new file called Site.Master.resx in the App_LocalResources folder.
8. Add an existing German resource file for the Site.Master master page to the App_LocalResources
folder. The file is named Site.Master.de.resx and it is located in the D:\Lab Files\CS\Lab
07\Starter\Exercise 01 or D:\Lab Files\VB\Lab 07\Starter\Exercise 01 folder.
Task 4: Test the web application
1. Run the application.
2. Show the AdventureWorks home page in German, by changing the language preference in the
Internet Options dialog box.
Lab Instructions: Writing Server-Side Code for Web Forms 7

Note: The page should now be shown in German.
3. Close Internet Explorer.
4. Close Visual Studio 2010.
Results: After this exercise, you should have a web application that supports different languages, and
shows the site in the users preferred language.

Exercise 2: Persisting Data on Web Forms Pages
The main tasks for this exercise are as follows:
1. Use a cookie collection to persist user information, setting scope and lifetime to save the last chosen
category.
2. Store system-wide information in the Application object, to hold the number of simultaneous visitors
on the site.
3. Use the session object to store the shopping cart.
4. Configure session state to run in SQL Server.
Task 1: Open the AdventureWorks solution in Visual Studio 2010
1. Open Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
2. Open the AdventureWorks solution from the following location.
Programming
Language Location
Visual C# D:\Lab Files\CS\Lab 07\Starter\Exercise 02
Visual Basic D:\Lab Files\VB\Lab 07\Starter\Exercise 02
Task 2: Use a cookie collection to persist user information and set scope and lifetime to
save the last chosen category
1. Open the Default.aspx Web Form in Code view.
2. On postback, create a cookie object called Preferences that holds the current product category,
saved as a value named LastCategory. Make sure that the cookie will expire after one minute. The
cookie must be appended to the response.
[Visual C#]
else
{
if (lbCategories.SelectedIndex != -1)
{
string category = lbCategories.SelectedValue;

HttpCookie cookie = new HttpCookie("Preferences");
cookie["LastCategory"] = category;
cookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1);
Response.AppendCookie(cookie);

Response.Redirect("/Products.aspx?id=" + category);
}
}

[Visual Basic]
Else
If lbCategories.SelectedIndex <> -1 Then
Dim category = lbCategories.SelectedValue

Dim cookie As New HttpCookie("Preferences")
cookie("LastCategory") = category
cookie.Expires = DateTime.Now.AddMinutes(1)
Response.AppendCookie(cookie)

Lab Instructions: Writing Server-Side Code for Web Forms 9
Response.Redirect("/Products.aspx?id=" & category, True)
End If
End If
3. If the page is rendered for the first time, add code to check that a cookie named Preferences exists in
the request cookie collection, and if there is, read the LastCategory value from the cookie, and assign
it to the SelectedValue property of the ListBox control.
[Visual C#]
if (!Page.IsPostBack)
{
List<ProductCategory> data = DataAccessLayer.Products.GetCategories();

lbCategories.DataSource = data;
lbCategories.DataBind();

HttpCookie cookie = Request.Cookies["Preferences"];
if (cookie != null)
{
lbCategories.SelectedValue = cookie["LastCategory"];
}
}

[Visual Basic]
If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
Dim data As List(Of ProductCategory) =
AdventureWorks.DataAccessLayer.Products.GetCategories
lbCategories.DataSource = data
lbCategories.DataBind()

Dim cookie As HttpCookie = Request.Cookies("Preferences")

If Not cookie Is Nothing Then
lbCategories.SelectedValue = cookie("LastCategory")
End If
4. Build the solution, and fix any errors.
Task 3: Store system-wide information in the Application object
1. Open Global.asax in Code view.
2. In the Application_Start method, overwrite the existing code, by adding a new application variable
named OnlineVisitors, to the Application object. The variable must have a starting value of 0.
[Visual C#]
void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
Application["OnlineVisitors"] = 0;
}

[Visual Basic]
Sub Application_Start(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
Application("OnlineVisitors") = 0
End Sub
3. In the Session_Start method increment the value of the OnlineVisitors application variable by 1.
Make sure you prevent multiple threads from writing to the application variable, by locking the
Application object before writing, and unlocking once you have finished writing to it.
[Visual C#]
10 Lab Instructions: Writing Server-Side Code for Web Forms
void Session_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
Application.Lock();
int visitors = (int)Application["OnlineVisitors"];
visitors++;
Application["OnlineVisitors"] = visitors;
Application.UnLock();
}
[Visual Basic]
Sub Session_Start(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
Application.Lock()
Dim visitors As Integer = Integer.Parse(Application("OnlineVisitors"))
visitors += 1
Application("OnlineVisitors") = visitors
Application.UnLock()
End Sub
4. In the Session_End decrement the value of the OnlineVisitors application variable by 1, if the
current value is not 0. Make sure you prevent multiple threads from writing to the application
variable, by locking the Application object before writing, and unlocking once you have finished
writing to it.
[Visual C#]
void Session_End(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
Application.Lock();
int visitors = (int)Application["OnlineVisitors"];
if (visitors > 0)
{
visitors++;
Application["OnlineVisitors"] = visitors;
}

Application.UnLock();
}
[Visual Basic]
Sub Session_End(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
Application.Lock()
Dim visitors As Integer = Integer.Parse(Application("OnlineVisitors"))

If visitors > 0 Then
visitors -= 1
Application("OnlineVisitors") = visitors
End If

Application.UnLock()
End Sub
5. Build the solution, and fix any errors.
Task 4: Use the session object to store the shopping cart
1. Open the ProductDetails Web Form in Code view.
2. Upon postback, the Order button has been pressed, so the information entered in the Web Form is
persisted. In the Page_Load method, notice how the product ID, product name, and list price, which
are not displayed to the user, are saved to hidden fields. In the btnOrder_Click event handler, notice
that a new List object of type clsShoppingCart is created and saved to Session state. Finally, the user
is redirected to the ShoppingCart Web Form.
Lab Instructions: Writing Server-Side Code for Web Forms 11
3. Open the ShoppingCart Web Form in Code view.
4. Analyze the code in the Page_Load method.
Task 5: Configure session state to run in SQL Server

2. Configure your application to use the local SQL Server

instance named SQLExpress, for persisting


session information instead of the default InProc mode.
<system.web>
...
<sessionState mode="SQLServer" sqlConnectionString="Integrated Security=SSPI;Data
Source=.\SQLExpress;" />
</system.web>
3. Configure the local SQL Server instance SQLExpress to host the state database, by running the
following command from the Visual Studio Command Prompt (2010). The Visual Studio Command
Prompt (2010) must be run as an administrator.
aspnet_regsql -E -S .\SQLExpress -ssadd
4. Open the SQL Server Command Line Tool, by running the following command from the Visual
Studio Command Prompt (2010).
sqlcmd E S .\SQLExpress
5. Add permissions for the user Student to access the tempdb and ASPState database to use the new
SQL Server Session state, by running commands from the SQL Server Command Line Tool within
the Visual Studio Command Prompt (2010). The commands are saved in the D:\Lab Files\CS\Lab
07\Starter\Exercise 02\ASPState.txt or D:\Lab Files\VB\Lab 07\Starter\Exercise 02\ASPState.txt
file, from where you can copy them and paste them into the SQL Server Command Line Tool.
6. Close the SQL Server Command Line Tool, by running the following command from the Visual
Studio Command Prompt (2010).
quit
7. Close the Visual Studio Command Prompt (2010).

Exercise 1: Using jQuery
The main tasks for this lab are as follows:
Register a jQuery library in the HTML header.
Use selectors and events.
Use the tableSorter jQuery library to allow client-side sorting.
Task 1: Open an existing ASP.NET web application
1. Log on to the 10264A-GEN-DEV virtual machine as Student, with the password, Pa$$w0rd.
2. Open Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
3. Open the AdventureWorks solution from the D:\Lab Files\CS\Lab 12\Starter\Exercise 01 or D:\Lab
Files\VB\Lab 12\Starter\Exercise 01 folder.
Task 2: Register a jQuery library in the HTML header
1. Open the Site.Master master page.
2. Ensure that the jquery-1.4.1.js and jquery.tablesorter.min.js file are located in the Scripts folder.
3. In the head element of the Site.Master file, add the following script elements.
<head runat="server">
<title></title>
<link href="~/Styles/Site.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<script src='<%= ResolveUrl("~/Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.js") %>'
type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src='<%= ResolveUrl("~/Scripts/jquery.tablesorter.min.js") %>'
type="text/javascript"></script>
<asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="HeadContent" runat="server">
</asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
</head>
Note: Make sure that you add the closing script tag (</script>) and not the self-closing script tag
(</>). The self-closing tag for the script references is not recognized by the browsers.

Best Practices: For Web Forms applications, you can use the ResolveUrl method, which correctly
resolves the URL relative to the request.
Task 3: Use selectors and events

{
if (!Page.IsPostBack)
{
if (Session["_cart"] != null)
{
List<clsShoppingCart> cart = (List<clsShoppingCart>) Session["_cart"];
gvCart.DataSource = cart;
gvCart.DataBind();
}
else
{
lblMessage.Text = "Your cart is empty";
btnPlaceOrder.Visible = false;
}
}

if (this.gvCart.Rows.Count > 0)
{
gvCart.UseAccessibleHeader = true;
gvCart.HeaderRow.TableSection = TableRowSection.TableHeader;
gvCart.FooterRow.TableSection = TableRowSection.TableFooter;
}
}

[Visual Basic]
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles
Me.Load
If Not Session("_cart") Is Nothing Then
Dim cart = CType(Session("_cart"), List(Of clsShoppingCart))
gvCart.DataSource = cart
gvCart.DataBind()
Else
lblMessage.Text = "Your cart is empty"
btnPlaceOrder.Visible = False
End If

If gvCart.Rows.Count > 0 Then

rendered.
<table cellspacing="0" rules="all" border="1" id="MainContent_gvCart" style="border-
collapse:collapse;">
<thead>
<tr>
<th scope="col">ID</th><th scope="col">Name</th><th
scope="col">Price</th><th scope="col">Quantity</th>
</tr>
</thead><tbody>
<tr>
<td>879</td><td>All-Purpose Bike Stand</td><td>1</td><td>159</td>
</tr>
</tbody><tfoot>
13. Close the source window.

});

jQuery.fn.fadeInFadeOut = function (speed) {
$(this).fadeIn(speed, function () {
$(this).fadeOut(speed);
});
}

$(document).ready(function () {
$("a").mouseover(function () {
$(this).closest("tr").find("div").fadeInFadeOut("slow");
});
});
</script>

Lab Instructions: Developing Client-side Scripts and Services 9
Exercise 3: Creating a WCF Service
The main tasks for this exercise are as follows:
1. Create an Ajax-enabled WCF service.
2. Add logic to the query, and return a random product from the database.
3. Examine the service configuration in the Web.config file.
4. Invoke WCF service using client-side code from the master page.
Task 1: Open an existing ASP.NET web application
1. Open Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
2. Open the AdventureWorks solution from the D:\Lab Files\CS\Lab 12\Starter\Exercise 03 or D:\Lab
Files\VB\Lab 12\Starter\Exercise 03 folder.
Task 2: Create an Ajax-enabled WCF service
Add a new Ajax-enabled WCF service named ProductsService to the project.
Task 3: Add Logic to the query and return a random product from the database
1. Remove the default DoWork method and comments from the service class.
[Visual C#]
// To use HTTP GET, add [WebGet] attribute. (Default ResponseFormat is
WebMessageFormat.Json)
// To create an operation that returns XML,
// add [WebGet(ResponseFormat=WebMessageFormat.Xml)],
// and include the following line in the operation body:
// WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse.ContentType = "text/xml";
[OperationContract]
public void DoWork()
{
// Add your operation implementation here
return;
}

// Add more operations here and mark them with [OperationContract]

[Visual Basic]
' To use HTTP GET, add <WebGet()> attribute. (Default ResponseFormat is
WebMessageFormat.Json)
' To create an operation that returns XML,
' add <WebGet(ResponseFormat:=WebMessageFormat.Xml)>,
' and include the following line in the operation body:
' WebOperationContext.Current.OutgoingResponse.ContentType = "text/xml"
<OperationContract()>
Public Sub DoWork()
' Add your operation implementation here
End Sub

' Add more operations here and mark them with <OperationContract()>
2. Add the following GetRandomProduct method to the ProductsService.svc file.
[Visual C#]
public class ProductsService
{
[OperationContract]
public string GetRandomProduct()
{
var random = new Random();
10 Lab Instructions: Developing Client-side Scripts and Services
using (var db = new AdventureWorksEntities())
{
var randomNumber = random.Next(1, db.Products.Count() + 1);
var randomProduct = (from p in db.Products
where p.ProductID == randomNumber
select new { p.Name, p.ListPrice, p.ProductNumber
}).FirstOrDefault();
return new
System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer().Serialize(randomProduct);
}
}
}

[Visual Basic]
Public Class ProductsService
<OperationContract()>
Public Function GetRandomProduct() As String
Dim random = New Random()

Using db = New AdventureWorksEntities()
Dim randomNumber = random.[Next](1, db.Products.Count() + 1)

Dim randomProduct = (From p In db.Products
Where p.ProductID = randomNumber
Select New With {p.Name, p.ListPrice,
p.ProductNumber}).FirstOrDefault()

Return New
System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer().Serialize(randomProduct)
End Using
End Function
End Class
Note: We are invoking the ProductsService from the client side. Hence, we want the returned format
to be XML or Json. For this reason, we are using the JavaScriptSerializer class to serialize the class into
a valid Json format.
Task 4: Examine the service configuration in the Web.config file
1. Open the Web.config file.
2. Examine the configuration markup in the system.serviceModel element, which has been created by
the Ajax-enabled WCF service project item template.
<system.serviceModel>
<behaviors>
<endpointBehaviors>
<behavior name="AdventureWorks.ProductsServiceAspNetAjaxBehavior">
<enableWebScript />
</behavior>
</endpointBehaviors>
</behaviors>
<serviceHostingEnvironment aspNetCompatibilityEnabled="true"
multipleSiteBindingsEnabled="true" />
<services>
<service name="AdventureWorks.ProductsService">
<endpoint address=""
behaviorConfiguration="AdventureWorks.ProductsServiceAspNetAjaxBehavior"
binding="webHttpBinding" contract="AdventureWorks.ProductsService" />
</service>
</services>
</system.serviceModel>
Lab Instructions: Developing Client-side Scripts and Services 11
Task 5: Invoke WCF service using client-side code from the master page
1. Open the Site.Master master page.
2. Add a reference to the ProductsService WCF by adding a ScriptManager control.
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
<Services>
<asp:ServiceReference Path="~/ProductsService.svc" />
</Services>
</asp:ScriptManager>
3. Add the following code to the Site.Master master page, after the closing html tag, at the end of the
script element.
getRandomProduct();

function getRandomProduct() {
ProductsService.GetRandomProduct(function (response) {
var product = eval('(' + response + ')');

document.getElementById("ProductName").innerHTML = product.Name;
document.getElementById("ProductNumber").innerHTML = product.ProductNumber;
document.getElementById("ProductPrice").innerHTML = product.ListPrice;
});
}
4. Add the following markup after the MainContent ContentPlaceHolder control.
<div class="main">
<asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="MainContent" runat="server" />
<div style="margin: 10px 10px 10px 10px; padding: 10px 10px 10px 10px; border:

11. Examine the markup in XAML view.
<UserControl x:Class="AdventureWorksSL.MainPage"

xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
xmlns:mc="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/markup-
compatibility/2006"
mc:Ignorable="d"

xmlns:sdk="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentati
on/sdk" Height="400" Width="600">

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White" Width="600"
Height="400">
<sdk:DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" Height="156"
HorizontalAlignment="Left" Name="CategoriesDataGrid"
VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="100" Margin="5,30,0,0" />
<sdk:DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" Height="300"
HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="106,30,0,0"
10 Lab Instructions: Developing a Web Application by Using Silverlight
Name="ProductsDataGrid" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="370" />
<sdk:Label Height="14" HorizontalAlignment="Left"
Name="CategoryLabel" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="100"
Margin="6,1,0,0" Content="Categories" />
<sdk:Label Height="14" HorizontalAlignment="Left"
Margin="106,1,0,0" Name="ProductLabel" VerticalAlignment="Top"
Width="100" Content="Products" />
</Grid>
</UserControl>
12. Configure the CategoriesDataGrid control to display the necessary columns returned from the
GetProductCategories service method, by adding a DataGrid.Columns element to the
CategoriesDataGrid control.
<sdk:DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" Height="156"
HorizontalAlignment="Left" Name="CategoriesDataGrid"
VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="100" Margin="5,30,0,0">
<sdk:DataGrid.Columns>
<sdk:DataGridTextColumn Binding="{Binding
ProductCategoryID}" Header="ID" Visibility="Collapsed" />
<sdk:DataGridTextColumn Binding="{Binding Name}"
Header="Name" />
</sdk:DataGrid.Columns>
</sdk:DataGrid>
13. Configure the ProductsDataGrid control to display the necessary columns returned from the
GetProductByCategory service method, by adding a DataGrid.Columns element to the
ProductsDataGrid control.
<sdk:DataGrid AutoGenerateColumns="False" Height="300"
HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="106,30,0,0"
Name="ProductsDataGrid" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="370" />
<sdk:DataGrid.Columns>
<sdk:DataGridTextColumn Binding="{Binding Name}"
Header="Name" />
<sdk:DataGridTextColumn Binding="{Binding ProductNumber}"
Header="Product Number" />
<sdk:DataGridTextColumn Binding="{Binding Color}"
Header="Color" />
<sdk:DataGridTextColumn Binding="{Binding Size}"
Header="Size" />
</sdk:DataGrid.Columns>
</sdk:DataGrid>
Task 4: Call the services asynchronously
1. In the Designer, double-click the CategoriesDataGrid control.
Note: This creates an event handler named
CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged in the MainPage.xaml.cs or
MainPage.xaml.vb code-behind file.
[Visual C#]
private void CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged(object sender,
SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
{

}

[Visual Basic]
Private Sub CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged(ByVal sender As
Lab Instructions: Developing a Web Application by Using Silverlight 11
System.Object, ByVal e As
System.Windows.Controls.SelectionChangedEventArgs) Handles
CategoriesDataGrid.SelectionChanged

End Sub
2. In the MainPage class, create a protected variable for the ProductServiceSLClient object.
[Visual C#]
public partial class MainPage : UserControl
{
protected AdventureWorks.ProductServiceSLClient productService
= new AdventureWorks.ProductServiceSLClient();

...
[Visual Basic]
Public Partial Class MainPage
Inherits UserControl

Protected productService As New
AdventureWorks.ProductServiceSLClient()
...
3. In the MainPage class constructor, wire up event handlers for the two Web service methods.
[Visual C#]
public MainPage()
{
InitializeComponent();

productService.GetProductCategoriesCompleted += new
EventHandler<AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs
>(productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted);
productService.GetProductsByCategoryCompleted += new
EventHandler<AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArg
s>(productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted);
}
[Visual Basic]
Public Sub New()
InitializeComponent()

AddHandler productService.GetProductCategoriesCompleted,
AddressOf productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted
AddHandler productService.GetProductsByCategoryCompleted,
AddressOf productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted
End Sub
4. Each event handler needs a method to execute once the asynchronous call completes.
[Visual C#]
void productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted(object sender,
AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArgs e)
{

}

void productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted(object sender,
AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs e)
{

12 Lab Instructions: Developing a Web Application by Using Silverlight
}
[Visual Basic]
Private Sub productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted(ByVal
sender As Object, ByVal e As
AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs)

End Sub

Private Sub productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted(ByVal
sender As Object, ByVal e As
AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArgs)

End Sub
5. When the page loads, the CategoriesDataGrid control must be populated. In the class constructor,
add a call to the service method GetProductCategoriesAsync.
[Visual C#]
public MainPage()
{
InitializeComponent();

productService.GetProductCategoriesCompleted += new
EventHandler<AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs
>(productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted);
productService.GetProductsByCategoryCompleted += new
EventHandler<AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArgs
>(productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted);
productService.GetProductCategoriesAsync();
}
[Visual Basic]
Public Sub New()
InitializeComponent()
AddHandler productService.GetProductCategoriesCompleted,
AddressOf productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted
AddHandler productService.GetProductsByCategoryCompleted,
AddressOf productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted
productService.GetProductCategoriesAsync()
End Sub
Task 5: Bind the data returned from the services to the grids
1. The initial call to GetProductCategoriesAsync returns to
productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted. In the
productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted method, bind the results using the ItemsSource
property returned by the service to the grid.
[Visual C#]
void productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted(object sender,
AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs e)
{
CategoriesDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result;
}
[Visual Basic]
Sub productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted(sender As Object,
e As AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs)
CategoriesDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result
End Sub
Lab Instructions: Developing a Web Application by Using Silverlight 13
2. In the CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged event handler, get the selected category, and retrieve
the products by category.
[Visual C#]
private void CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged(object sender,
SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
{
AdventureWorks.ProductCategory category =
CategoriesDataGrid.SelectedItem as AdventureWorks.ProductCategory;

productService.GetProductsByCategoryAsync(category.ProductCategory
ID);
}


14 Lab Instructions: Developing a Web Application by Using Silverlight
[Visual Basic]
Private Sub CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged(sender As Object,
e As SelectionChangedEventArgs)
Dim category As AdventureWorks.ProductCategory =
TryCast(CategoriesDataGrid.SelectedItem,
AdventureWorks.ProductCategory)

productService.GetProductsByCategoryAsync(category.ProductCategory
ID)
End Sub
The call to GetProductsByCategoryAsync returns to the
productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted method, where the results returned by the
service should be bound to the ItemsSource property of the grid.
[Visual C#]
void productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted(object sender,
AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArgs e)
{
ProductsDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result;
}
[Visual Basic]
Sub productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted(sender As
Object, e As
AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArgs)
ProductsDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result
End Sub
The final code should like this.
[Visual C#]
public partial class MainPage : UserControl
{
protected AdventureWorks.ProductServiceSLClient
productService = new AdventureWorks.ProductServiceSLClient();

public MainPage()
{
InitializeComponent();
productService.GetProductCategoriesCompleted += new
EventHandler<AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs
>(productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted);
productService.GetProductsByCategoryCompleted += new
EventHandler<AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArg
s>(productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted);
productService.GetProductCategoriesAsync();
}

private void CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged(object
sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
{
AdventureWorks.ProductCategory category =
CategoriesDataGrid.SelectedItem as AdventureWorks.ProductCategory;
productService.GetProductsByCategoryAsync(category.ProductCategory
ID);
}

void productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted(object
sender, AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArgs e)
{
ProductsDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result;
Lab Instructions: Developing a Web Application by Using Silverlight 15
}

void productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted(object
sender, AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs e)
{
CategoriesDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result;
}
}
[Visual Basic]
Partial Public Class MainPage
Inherits UserControl
Protected productService As New
AdventureWorks.ProductServiceSLClient()

Public Sub New()
InitializeComponent()
AddHandler productService.GetProductCategoriesCompleted
, AddressOf productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted
AddHandler productService.GetProductsByCategoryCompleted
, AddressOf productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted
productService.GetProductCategoriesAsync()
End Sub

Private Sub CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged(ByVal sender
As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.Windows.Controls.SelectionChangedEventArgs)
Dim category As AdventureWorks.ProductCategory =
TryCast(CategoriesDataGrid.SelectedItem,
AdventureWorks.ProductCategory)

productService.GetProductsByCategoryAsync(category.ParentProductCa
tegoryID)
End Sub

Private Sub productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted(ByVal
sender As Object, ByVal e As
AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs)
CategoriesDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result
End Sub

Private Sub productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted(ByVal sender As
Object, ByVal e As
AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArgs)
ProductsDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result
End Sub

End Class

public ViewResult FeaturedProducts(string CategoryId)
{
int id = int.Parse(CategoryId);
var products = pr.GetProductsByCategory(id);

return View("_FeaturedProducts", products);
}
[Visual Basic]
Public Function FeaturedProducts(ByVal CategoryId As String) As ViewResult
Dim id As Integer = Integer.Parse(CategoryId)
Dim products = pr.GetProductsByCategory(id)

Return View("_FeaturedProducts", products)
End Function
Task 4: Load the Featured Products when a category is clicked
1. Open the Index.aspx view in the Views/Products folder.
In Solution Explorer, expand Views, expand Products, and then double-click Index.aspx.
2. The Ajax method needs a place to put the results from the called function. Add a div element
at the bottom of the page, before the closing Content tag.

<div id="featured-products"></div>
In the Index.aspx window, in the Content2 Content element, append the following markup.
<br />
<div id="featured-products"></div>
3. Create the Ajax method call. This function calls the controller action, and then returns the
results into the featured products div created earlier. Add the following markup to handle the
click event for the rendered select element, at the bottom of the page, before the closing Content
tag.
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function () {
$("#CategoryID ").click(function () {
var id = $(this).val();

End Sub

Private Sub productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted(ByVal sender As Object,
ByVal e As AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArgs)

End Sub
5. When the page loads, the CategoriesDataGrid control must be populated. In the class constructor,
add a call to the service method GetProductCategoriesAsync.
[Visual C#]
public MainPage()
{
InitializeComponent();

productService.GetProductCategoriesCompleted += new
EventHandler<AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs>(productService_Ge
tProductCategoriesCompleted);
productService.GetProductsByCategoryCompleted += new

Public Sub New()
InitializeComponent()
AddHandler productService.GetProductCategoriesCompleted, AddressOf
productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted
AddHandler productService.GetProductsByCategoryCompleted, AddressOf
productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted
productService.GetProductCategoriesAsync()
End Sub
In the MainPage.xaml.cs or MainPage.xaml.vb window, append the following code to the
constructor in the MainPage class.
[Visual C#]
productService.GetProductCategoriesAsync();

Lab Answer Key: Developing a Web Application by Using Silverlight 13
[Visual Basic]
productService.GetProductCategoriesAsync()
Task 5: Bind the data returned from the services to the grids
1. The initial call to GetProductCategoriesAsync returns to
productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted. In the
productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted method, bind the results using the ItemsSource
property returned by the service to the grid.
[Visual C#]
void productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted(object sender,
AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs e)
{
CategoriesDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result;
}

[Visual Basic]
Sub productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted(sender As Object, e As
AdventureWorks.GetProductCategoriesCompletedEventArgs)
CategoriesDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result
End Sub
In the MainPage.xaml.cs or MainPage.xaml.vb window, add the following code to the
productService_GetProductCategoriesCompleted method in the MainPage class.
[Visual C#]
CategoriesDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result;

[Visual Basic]
CategoriesDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result
2. In the CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged event handler, get the selected category, and retrieve
the products by category.
[Visual C#]
private void CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged(object sender,
SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
{
AdventureWorks.ProductCategory category = CategoriesDataGrid.SelectedItem as
AdventureWorks.ProductCategory;
productService.GetProductsByCategoryAsync(category.ProductCategoryID);
}

[Visual Basic]
Private Sub CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged(sender As Object, e As
SelectionChangedEventArgs)
Dim category As AdventureWorks.ProductCategory =
TryCast(CategoriesDataGrid.SelectedItem, AdventureWorks.ProductCategory)
productService.GetProductsByCategoryAsync(category.ProductCategoryID)
End Sub
In the MainPage.xaml.cs or MainPage.xaml.vb window, add the following code to the
CategoriesDataGrid_SelectionChanged method in the MainPage class.
14 Lab Answer Key: Developing a Web Application by Using Silverlight
[Visual C#]
AdventureWorks.ProductCategory category = CategoriesDataGrid.SelectedItem as

productService.GetProductsByCategoryAsync(category.ProductCategoryID);

[Visual Basic]
Dim category As AdventureWorks.ProductCategory =
TryCast(CategoriesDataGrid.SelectedItem, AdventureWorks.ProductCategory)
productService.GetProductsByCategoryAsync(category.ProductCategoryID)
3. The call to GetProductsByCategoryAsync returns to the
productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted method, where the results returned by the
service should be bound to the ItemsSource property of the grid.
[Visual C#]
void productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted(object sender,
AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArgs e)
{
ProductsDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result;
}

[Visual Basic]
Sub productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted(sender As Object, e As
AdventureWorks.GetProductsByCategoryCompletedEventArgs)
ProductsDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result
End Sub
In the MainPage.xaml.cs or MainPage.xaml.vb window, add the following code to the
productService_GetProductsByCategoryCompleted method in the MainPage class.
[Visual C#]
ProductsDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result;

[Visual Basic]
ProductsDataGrid.ItemsSource = e.Result
