I wanted to learn more about how to program ASP.net and not just the model, view, controller. I decided to use the always trustful W3Schools.com website. As is common place with W3Schools, they deliver a great insight into the actual functionality and usability of the code.
Check out ASP.NET Examples at http://www.w3schools.com/aspnet/aspnet_examples.asp
ASP.net has three controls: HTML, Web, and Validation. How the code interacts with the HTML that will display the code is that the scripting is labeled (named) and then the HTML identifies an element with that lable as the id. This as a result pulls that result and displays it. In order for all of this to happen, the script has be told to runat=”server” as well as the element you id.
For example: […] lbl1.Text=”The date and time is ” & now()[…] <asp:label id=”lbl1″ runat=”server”[…] .
Requests to the server are different than requests for an HTML page. When a browser requests an HTML file, the server returns the file. When a browser requests an ASP.NET file, IIS passes the request to the ASP.NET engine on the server. (http://bit.ly/s7Gtk)
The Programming languages used are C#, Visual Basic, and J#. ASP.net has two development environments: Visual Studio .NET and Visual Web Developer. ASP.net components highly rely on XML to store information and configuration.
When it is time to install .net, it’s simple! Just look in your windows update. Now you will be ready to start the tutorial: http://www.w3schools.com/aspnet/aspnet_pages.asp.
