Utilize HTML5 ContentEditable in ASP.NET MVC to Edit View Content
Usually ASP.NET MVC developers create two separate views for displaying data in read-only and editable form. Although this technique works well, you can utilize a feature of HTML5 to conveniently read as well as edit data on the same view. HTML5 offers contenteditable attribute that magically turns any read-only area of a web page into an editable region. Using contenteditable in combination with some jQuery code you can easily develop a view that toggles between read-only and editable mode.

Receiving Data As FormDataCollection in ASP.NET Web API
The Web API actions must follow prescribed signatures in order to work as expected. More often than not this parameter is of a complex type that wraps the actual pieces of data in its properties. This arrangement goes well when you know the exact model being passed by a client. However, this arrangement is of no use when a client is sending arbitrary pieces of data not mapping to any model. Luckily, Web API provides a way to deal with such data. This article discusses just that.

Customize View, Partial View and Layout Search Locations in ASP.NET MVC
By default ASP.NET MVC stores all the views associated to a controller inside a sub-folder of Views folder. On the same lines partial views and layout pages are stored inside Shared sub-folder under Views folder. Although this default arrangement works well in most of the cases, at times you may want to deviate from this convention based arrangement and store views, partial views and layouts in some different folder structure. Luckily, you can easily deal with the situation by creating a custom view engine. This article tells you how.

Load ASP.NET MVC Partial Views Dynamically Using jQuery
Most of the times ASP.NET MVC views are rendered as a result of user navigating to some action. For example, when a user navigates to /home/index in the browser (either through address bar or through a hyperlink), ASP.NET MVC executes the action method and usually returns a view to the browser. This means each view is rendered as a result of a full GET or POST request. At times, however, you may want to load views dynamically through Ajax. This way you can render contents of a view without full page refresh.

Perform List, Insert, Update and Delete in a Single View in ASP.NET MVC
A common way to perform list, insert, update and delete operations in ASP.NET MVC is to create four separate views. The List view forms the launching view where records are displayed and you can choose to Edit, Delete or Insert a record. However, in some cases you may want to perform all these operations in a single view itself. This task can be accomplished using full page postback or using Ajax. This article discusses the former technique.

Implementing Sorting and Paging in ASP.NET MVC
Displaying records in a table is a very common requirement in many web applications. Such a table also needs facilities such as sorting the data based on a specific column and pagination for the sake of easy navigation and display. Unlike ASP.NET web forms, MVC doesn't have readymade server controls such as GridView to ease your job. One needs to either use a third-party helper or make some custom provision to accomplish this task. This article shows how persistent and bidirectional sorting as well as paging can be implemented in ASP.NET MVC without any external dependencies.

Greatness of Shambhavi Mudra

Formal classroom training is still good for you
As an IT trainer I come in contact with dozens of .NET software developers, team leaders and managers. One common area where most of them struggle is - keeping themselves updated with the latest technology. Especially so when technology is quite new to them (say VB6 developer wanting to learn ASP.NET or a web forms developer wanting to learn MVC). While for software developers it may sound like a part of their job they find this task quite hard because they need to strike a balance between available time, personal life, and ongoing project pressures.
