Code refactoring with Visual Studio 2010 Part-1

Visual studio 2010 is a Great IDE(Integrated Development Environment) and we all are using it in day by day for our coding purpose. There are many great features provided by Visual Studio 2010 and Today I am going to show one of great feature called for code refactoring. This feature is one of the most unappreciated features of Visual Studio 2010 as lots of people still not using that and doing stuff manfully. So to explain feature let’s create a simple console application which will print first name and last name like following.

ConsoleApplication

And following is code for that.

using System;

namespace CodeRefractoring
{
class Program
{
  static void Main(string[] args)
  {
      string firstName = "Jalpesh";
      string lastName = "Vadgama";

      Console.WriteLine(string.Format("FirstName:{0}",firstName));
      Console.WriteLine(string.Format("LastName:{0}", lastName));
      Console.ReadLine();
  }
}
}

So as you can see this is a very basic console application and let’s run it to see output.

Output

So now lets explore our first feature called extract method in visual studio you can also do that via refractor menu like following. Just select the code for which you want to extract method and then click refractor menu and then click extract method. Now I am selecting three lines of code and clicking on refactor –> Extract Method just like following.

ExtractMethod

Once you click menu a dialog box will appear like following.

ExtractMethodDialog

As you can I have highlighted two thing first is Method Name where I put Print as Method Name and another one Preview method signature where its smart enough to extract parameter also as We have just selected three lines with console.writeline. One you click ok it will extract the method and you code will be like this.

using System;

namespace CodeRefractoring
{
class Program
{
  static void Main(string[] args)
  {
      string firstName = "Jalpesh";
      string lastName = "Vadgama";

      Print(firstName, lastName);
  }

  private static void Print(string firstName, string lastName)
  {
      Console.WriteLine(string.Format("FirstName:{0}", firstName));
      Console.WriteLine(string.Format("LastName:{0}", lastName));
      Console.ReadLine();
  }
}
}
So as you can see in above code its has created a static method called Print and also passed parameter for as firstname and lastname. Isn’t that great!!!. It has also created static print method as I am calling it from static void main. Hope you liked it.. Stay tuned for more..Till that Happy programming.

This is just a project template.



Now once you click on OK It will create a Web API application with default values controller and program.cs.  As you know Program.cs is now starting point for the ASP.NET Core 1.0 application so It contains all the required configuration and startup items. Following is a code for that.
using System.IO; using Microsoft.Asp…

How to use migration with Entity Framework Core

Entity framework core is  the lightweight, extensible and cross-platform version of Entity Framework. Before some time, Microsoft has Released a new version of Entity Framework RC2. I have written a couple of blog post about Entity framework code first migration earlier for Entity framework 6.0. So there was a couple of request coming for writing a blog post about Entity Framework Core RC2 migration. So I thought it will be a good idea to give an overview how database migration works in Entity Framework Core RC2. This post will cover a basic scenario where we are going to create the database with existing ASP.NET Identity migration and then we are going to create a new model and have that migration applied in the database.

How to use Entity Framework Migrations: Let’s get started, To demonstrate entity framework core migrations, I am going to create a sample asp.net core web application like following.



Once we select asp.net core application it will appear the following dialog.

Creating PDF with ASP.Net MVC and RazorPDF

Update: I have written a new blog post about better approach to create a PDF with asp.net mvc- You can find that following location.- A Better Solution to create PDF with Rotativa and ASP.NET MVC
In this post we are going to learn how we can easily create PDF from ASP.Net application with the help of Razor PDF NuGet package.

About Razor PDF:
This NuGet package is created by Al Nyveldt It internally uses ITextSharp an open source PDF convertor library. RazorPDF uses Razor View engine to create iTextXML which is in tern used to produce PDF file. You can get more information about that at below link.
