ASP.NET Page Methods with Parameters

In earlier post I have written how we can use page methods to call server-side from the java script. In this post I am going to explain How we can pass parameters to page methods with java script.
So let’s take a simple example to see how we can pass parameters to the page methods. I am going to create a page method Hello World which takes name as parameter and return a string to greet user from that page method below is code for that.

using System;
using System.Web.Services;

namespace PageMethods
 public partial class Test : System.Web.UI.Page
    public static string HelloWorld(string name)
        return string.Format("Hi {0}",name);

As you can see in following page method it’s returning string with greetings. So now our server-side code is completed. Now it’s time to write HTML and java script code for this. Following is code for java script.

<script type="text/javascript">
 function GreetingsFromServer() {
     var name = 'Jalpesh';
     PageMethods.HelloWorld(name,OnSuccess, OnError);
     return false;
 function OnSuccess(response) {
 function OnError(error) {

As you can see in above code I have created a function called ‘GreetingsFromServer’ which called page method helloworld with passing name parameter. Other two functions are handlers for the page methods Onsucess will be called if page method is called successfully without error other wise it will call onError method and alert error message.

Now we are done with java script so its time to write HTML code. So let’s write a HTML code for this page.

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Test.aspx.cs" Inherits="PageMethods.Test" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
 <title>Page Method with parameter demo</title>
 <form id="form1" runat="server">
     <asp:ScriptManager runat="server" EnablePageMethods="true" EnablePartialRendering="true">

     <asp:button ID="btnHelloWorld" runat="server" Text="Greet User" OnClientClick="return GreetingsFromServer();"/>

As you can see from above code I have enabled page methods true with script manager and then I have called JavaScript function “GreetingsFromServer” on button client click. So it’s now time to run this code in browser. Following is output as expected.


That’s it. It’s very easy hope you liked it..Stay tuned for more…Happy programming

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 core web application like following.

Once we select 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 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.

Example(Creating PDF with ASP.Net MVC):
So what we are we waiting for ? Let’s create a simple example. To create example first thing we need to a create and ASP.Net MVC application.
