ASP.NET – Razor Model Directive

In the last video, we looked at integrating a model using the Inherits directive. A new directive, Model, has been introduced to make integrating strongly typed views as easy as a generic view. Through the use of the 'Add View' dialog, the model directive allows further integration with the Visual Studio designer than before. In this video, I will show you how to create a strongly typed view using the designer and model keyword, and add logic to that view.

ASP.NET – Razor Inherits Directive

In our previous video, we looked at how to pass parameters between an ASP.NET View and Layout page. It is now time to look at how to implement strongly-typed Models in an ASP.NET application. By default, the model is set to dynamic, meaning that it is not bound to any particular type of view. The inherits directive indicates which class the application will derive the view from, and can therefore ensure proper type checking. In this video, I will show you how to create a model using the Razor inherits directive.

ASP.NET – Passing Parameters Using Razor

In our previous videos, we have looked at how to create both Layout and View elements in an ASP.NET project using the Razor View engine. Once those elements are created, however, it is important to understand how to pass data between them, something which may not be immediately obvious. In this video, I will show you how to pass a simple string parameter using the PageData collection.

Working with Paths and URLs in Objective-C

When working with files in Objective-C, we can specify the paths to them. However, the recommended way (by Apple engineers) to specify that is by using URL-s (Uniform Resource Locator). The iOS SDK class that provides us urls manipulation is named NSURL, and it has a lot of class convenience methods that make developers' lives easier.

VMWare PowerCli Clustering

in this video , we are demonstrating how to use PowerCli for Clustering, creating a cluster, changing default values, enabling some features that are licensed like HA or DRS. This can be done at the cluster creation or by just changing or modifying properties. After the creation of the cluster you may want to move your VMHosts from a cluster to the new one.

PowerCli Migration

In this video, we showed you how to use migration via powerCli. When we say Migration, we are speaking about vMotion and Storage vMotion using PowerCli, which will result in just two commands and a pipe to move the Virtual Machine. The interesting thing is that you can automate the migration via scripts, and even use delays to attain it . you have to know that you will have some limitations which are 8 simultaneous Migrations per host.

ASP.NET – Razor View Creation

In our previous video, we looked at how to create a master layout page with the Razor view engine. Once the layout is in place, we need to then create Views to attach to the controllers included with the MvcMusicStore project. By using the Visual Studio mechanism previously demonstrated for quickly hooking up a View to a Controller, we can quickly create and add code to rapidly create Views. In this video, I will show you how to create a View using the Razor view engine.

ASP.NET – Razor Layout Creation

This video is a continuation in our series on the ASP.NET Razor view engine. Creating a master layout page is especially important in ASP.NET development on larger products. Customizing each individual page with layout options is time consuming, and not the most efficient way to use developer resources.

ASP.NET – Razor Syntax

We now take the next step and look at more detailed syntax and markup situations which demonstrate the great flexibility and fluidity of the Razor view engine in that we can seamlessly merge HTML and C#. In this video, I will go over deeper Razor syntax in preparation for completing a Microsoft online lab.

SonicWall – Configure Standard Ports

This video covers how to configure standard ports in SonicWall device. The example used in video covers allowing standard port (HTTP) from the Internet to a server on the LAN with private IP address. Once the configuration is complete, Internet users can access the server behind the SonicWALL UTM appliance through the WAN (Public) IP address.

SonicWall – Configure Non-Standard Ports

This video covers how to configure non-standard ports in SonicWall device. The example used in video covers allowing non-standard port from the Internet to a server on the LAN with private IP address. Once the configuration is complete, Internet users can access the server behind the SonicWALL UTM appliance through the WAN (Public) IP address.
