Unit Test Authorize Attribute

Technorati Tags: Unit Testing,ASP.NET,MVC,VS 2010 Story: I want to write a unit test to ensure that the Authorize attribute is applied to a controller ActionResult or ViewResult so that security is tested. Here is the test: Unit Test [TestMethod] public void PreviousSiteUserConversion_Authorization_Attributes_Have_Been_Applied() {     // Arrange     MethodInfo varietalMethod = typeof(AdminController).GetMethod("PreviousSiteUserConversion", new Type[] { });       // […]

Impressed with CrystalTech for .NET 4.0

Technorati Tags: .NET 4.0,Hosting,ASP.NET I’ve used CrystalTech for years. They seemed to be falling behind a bit when I started to work with the MVC (Model-View-Controller) pattern. That works MUCH better with IIS 7 than with IIS 6, but CrystalTech only had IIS 6 servers. That’s all changed! I now have no excuses for not […]

Since I’m a […]

MVC Overview

Technorati Tags: MVC What’s different about Microsoft’s ASP.NET MVC (Model-View-Controller)? There are some very good books about MVC (such as Steven Sanderson’s book), but here are the features I enjoy the most: Routing – The routing model in MVC makes you really think about what you want your URLs to look like.

MVC – Upcoming Series

Technorati Tags: MVC,VS 2010 I’ve been playing with Microsoft’s ASP.NET MVC (Model-View-Controller) application on and off for about a year now.

Testing HtmlHelper in MVC 2 RC 2

Technorati Tags: MVC,TDD,Mock,Moq I strive to use TDD (Test Driven Development) so not having unit tests drives me crazy. I was so pleased to run across this post http://ox.no/posts/mocking-htmlhelper-in-aspnet-mvc-rc1-using-moq making it easy for me to unit test the Html Helper. But then I downloaded the MVC 2 RC 2 and all my unit tests for […]

Error Check for MaxLength in Entity Framework

Technorati Tags: EF,MVC,VS 2010 HEADLINE: edmProperty.TypeUsage.Facets[“MaxLength”].Value comes in handy. I don’t make a habit of making a post when someone else has done some work… I might point it out, and in that spirit here is the post that finally sent me in the right direction: http://soci.hu/blog/. However, the post is not in English (fortunately, […]

Showing the Version for an MVC App

Technorati Tags: MVC,ASP.NET,VS 2010 The primary MVC (Model-View-Controller) application that I’m working on is called KarlZMvc resulting in a dll called KarlZMvc.dll. To get the version output on my Site.Master page I need to include the following line: Code Snippet <%= typeof(KarlZMvc.MvcApplication).Assembly.GetName().Version.ToString() %> I tried all sorts of combinations with the GetExecutingAssembly, or calling, etc. […]

Technorati Tags: MVC,Globalization,ASP.NET Headline: Putting the following code in the web config (at least for an ASP.NET MVC app) will cause your pages to honor the user’s browser settings. Code Snippet   <!–If culture and uiCulture are set to auto, ASP.NET can set the UI culture and culture for a Web page automatically, based on the […]

Forget the Colon as a Separator

Technorati Tags: MVC,ASP.NET Headline: Only use a colon as a separator when there is no other visible means of separation. Stated differently, “Stop using a colon between a label and a text box!” Back in DOS (Disc Operating System) when there was no graphical user interface we needed a way to let the user know […]
