AutoMapper In Asp.Net Core Applications

AutoMapper: Automapper is an object-to-object mapper. Object to object mapping works by transforming an input object of one type into an output object of a different type. Manually mapping one object property value to another object property value leads to more lines of code, so all this dirty work can be avoided by using the Automapper. As long as all properties names are the same for 2 different objects that need to map, almost zero configuration is needed to map them.  When To Use AutoMapper?: In any kind of architecture, it is always advised to not expose the 'Entity'(Table classes) directly. So we will create replica classes for 'Entity' we called them as 'DTO'(Data Transfer Object) or 'VM'(View Models). So this is the real-time best case to use Automapper for mapping 'Entity'(Table classes) data to DTO or VM's. Create A Sample Dotnet5 Web API Project: In this demo, we are going to understand the different mapping techniques that are

A Demo On MudBlazor Table Pagination In Blazor WebAssembly

In this article, we are going to implement pagination in the Blazor WebAssembly application using the MudBlazor UI table component. Pagination API: To accomplish our demo we need an API endpoint that contains a payload to support the pagination. If you have good knowledge of API pagination you can create your own API or else I have already created a blog on API pagination, so  click here  to know more. Create A Blazor WebAssembly Project: Let's begin our coding by creating a sample Blazor WebAssembly project. Steps To Configure MudBlazor: Let's install the 'MudBlazor' NuGet into our sample project. Now add the MudBlazor namespace into the '_Import.razor' file. _Import.razor: @using MudBlazor Add the below CSS files inside of the head tag of the 'index.html'. wwwroot/index.html: <link href=",400,500,700&display=swap" rel="stylesheet" /> <link href="_content

A Demo On .Net5 Web API Pagination Using Dapper ORM

In this article, we are going to implement a sample demo on pagination in .Net5 Web API application using Dapper ORM for database communication. Create A Sample Table: To accomplish our demo let's create a sample table. CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Todo]( [Id] [int] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL, [ItemName] [varchar](max) NULL, [IsCompleted] [bit] NOT NULL CONSTRAINT Pk_Todo PRIMARY KEY (Id) ) Create A .Net5 Web API Application: Let's create a .Net5 Web API application to implement our pagination. Specify the project name and solution name Select target framework a .Net5 Create Table Model and Pagination Response Model: Now we need to create to models like 'Todo'(Table Class) and 'PagingResponseModel'(Class that  used as API response model which contains all pagination properties). So let's add a new folder like 'Models' and our 2 classes inside of it. Models/Todo.cs: namespace Dot5.API.Dapper.Pagging.Models { public class Todo { public

Introduction On OData(Version 8) In .Net5 Web API Application

In this article, we are going to understand the steps to integrate OData(Version 8.0) into our .Net5 application. OData: The OData(Open Data Protocol) is an application-level protocol for interacting with data via a RESTful interface. OData supports the description of data models, editing, and querying of data according to those models. OData's main advantage is users can query the API results. So OData query or filter can be done in two different approaches: Approach - 1: A response collection from an action method can be filtered by the OData. Means if action method fetched the collection of records from the database and returning to user, in the middle OData will filter the response data based on user query. Approach - 2: Action method that returns an entity framework query of type 'IQueryable', then OData generates a SQL query based on the user OData query request, then executes against the database and then returns the result to the users. OData query features are: $se

.NET5 Web API Display PDF In Browser

In this article, we will display the PDF on the browser as a response to the .Net5 Web API endpoint. Create A .Net5 Web API Sample Application: Now let's create a .Net5 Web API sample application to begin our coding. API Endpoint To Load PDF From Physical Path: Now we are going to create a web API endpoint that will read the PDF file from the server physical folder. So first let's add a sample pdf file in our API server, so create 'wwwroot' folder(framework understandable folder to store the static files). Now add the 'pdf' folder inside of the 'wwwroot' folder and then add our sample pdf file as below. Create a new controller like 'PdfController.cs' inside of the 'Controllers' folder. Controllers/PdfController.cs: using System.IO; using System.Net.Http; using System.Threading.Tasks; using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc; namespace Dot5.PDF.OnBrowser.Controllers { [ApiController] [Route("[controller]")] public cl

.Net5 Blazor WebAssembly Application Invoke GraphQL Endpoints Using Strawberry Shake Library

In this article, we will implement a Blazor WebAssembly Application that consumes GraphQL endpoints using the Strawberry Shake library. Strawberry Shake: Strawberry Shake is a GraphQL client library that can be used by the .Net Standard Library. So all .NetCore applications (from .Net5) like APIs, MVC, Blazor Server, Blazor WebAssembly, etc. Strawberry Shake will generate all boilerplate code for the GraphQL Server schema, which lays an easy path for consuming the data from our Blazor WebAssembly application. Strawberry Shake CLI Tool Configuration: Strawberry Shake CLI needs to be configured because CLI will help us to generate the GraphQL client. Create a dotnet tool-manifest dotnet new tool-manifest Now install the Strawberry Shake CLI Tool dotnet tool install StrawberryShake.Tools --local Create A .Net5 Blazor WebAssembly Project: Let's start our journey by creating a .Net5 Blazor WebAssembly application sample project. Visual Studio users can easily create .Net5 Bl
