Fluent URL Builder and Testable HTTP Client for .NET

Flurl  

Flurl is a modern, fluent, asynchronous, testable, portable, buzzword-laden URL builder and HTTP client library.

var result = await "https://api.mysite.com"
    .AppendPathSegment("person")
    .SetQueryParams(new { api_key = "xyz" })
    .WithOAuthBearerToken("my_oauth_token")
    .PostJsonAsync(new { first_name = firstName, last_name = lastName })
    .ReceiveJson<T>();

[Test]
public void Can_Create_Person() {
    // fake & record all http calls in the test subject
    using (var httpTest = new HttpTest()) {
        // arrange
        httpTest.RespondWith("OK", 200);

        // act
        await sut.CreatePersonAsync("Claire", "Underwood");
        
        // assert
        httpTest.ShouldHaveCalled("http://api.mysite.com/*")
            .WithVerb(HttpMethod.Post)
            .WithContentType("application/json");
    }
}

Get it on NuGet:

PM> Install-Package Flurl.Http

Or get just the stand-alone URL builder without the HTTP features:

PM> Install-Package Flurl

jQuery Ajax CRUD in ASP.NET Core MVC with Modal Popup

In this article, we’ll discuss how to use jQuery Ajax for ASP.NET Core MVC CRUD Operations using Bootstrap Modal. With jQuery Ajax, we can make HTTP request to controller action methods without reloading the entire page, like a single page application.

To demonstrate CRUD operations – insert, update, delete and retrieve, the project will be dealing with details of a normal bank transaction. GitHub repository for this demo project : https://bit.ly/33KTJAu.

Sub-topics discussed :

  • Form design for insert and update operation.
  • Display forms in modal popup dialog.
  • Form post using jQuery Ajax.
  • Implement MVC CRUD operations with jQuery Ajax.
  • Loading spinner in .NET Core MVC.
  • Prevent direct access to MVC action method.

Create ASP.NET Core MVC Project

In Visual Studio 2019, Go to File > New > Project (Ctrl + Shift + N).

From new project window, Select Asp.Net Core Web Application_._

Once you provide the project name and location. Select Web Application(Model-View-Controller) and uncheck HTTPS Configuration. Above steps will create a brand new ASP.NET Core MVC project.

Setup a Database

Let’s create a database for this application using Entity Framework Core. For that we’ve to install corresponding NuGet Packages. Right click on project from solution explorer, select Manage NuGet Packages_,_ From browse tab, install following 3 packages.

Now let’s define DB model class file – /Models/TransactionModel.cs.

public class TransactionModel
{
    [Key]
    public int TransactionId { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(12)")]
    [DisplayName("Account Number")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage ="This Field is required.")]
    [MaxLength(12,ErrorMessage ="Maximum 12 characters only")]
    public string AccountNumber { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(100)")]
    [DisplayName("Beneficiary Name")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    public string BeneficiaryName { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(100)")]
    [DisplayName("Bank Name")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    public string BankName { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(11)")]
    [DisplayName("SWIFT Code")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    [MaxLength(11)]
    public string SWIFTCode { get; set; }

    [DisplayName("Amount")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    public int Amount { get; set; }

    [DisplayFormat(DataFormatString = "{0:MM/dd/yyyy}")]
    public DateTime Date { get; set; }
}

C#Copy

Here we’ve defined model properties for the transaction with proper validation. Now let’s define  DbContextclass for EF Core.

ML.NET Model Builder is now a part of Visual Studio | .NET Blog

ML.NET is a cross-platform, machine learning framework for .NET developers. Model Builder is the UI tooling in Visual Studio that uses Automated Machine Learning (AutoML) to train and consume custom ML.NET models in your .NET apps. You can use ML.NET and Model Builder to create custom machine learning models without having prior machine learning experience and without leaving the .NET ecosystem.

Generating HTTP API clients using Visual Studio Connected Services

We’re continuing our series on building HTTP APIs with .NET 5. In the first post in this series we talked about building well-described APIs using OpenAPI, and then followed that up taking a deeper dive into some of the open-source tools and packages you can use to make your HTTP API development easier. In this post, the third in the series, we’ll talk about how Visual Studio Connected Services gives you a convenient way of generating .NET clients for your HTTP APIs so your .NET apps can use the APIs via the Internet. Let’s get right to it!
