Show Validation Messages Containing Images in ASP.NET MVC
ASP.NET MVC offers HTML helpers for displaying field level validation error messages as well as validation summary. However, these validation messages are displayed as a plain string. There is no inbuilt way to include images of HTML markup with the output of the validation helpers. In this article I will show how to overcome this limitation using two techniques so that you can display images along with the validation messages.

Updated : Creating Wizard in ASP.NET MVC (Part 2 - Ajax Helper)
In Part 1 of this article series you developed a wizard in an ASP.NET MVC application. Although the wizard developed in Part 1 works as expected it has one shortcoming. It causes full page postback whenever you click on Previous or Next button. This behavior may not pose much problem if a wizard has only a few steps. However, if a wizard has many steps and each step accepts many entries then full page postback can deteriorate the user experience. To overcome this shortcoming you can add Ajax to the wizard so that only the form is posted to the server. In this part of the series you will convert the application developed in Part 1 to use Ajax.

Updated : Creating Wizard in ASP.NET MVC (Part 1 - Full Postback)

A wizard driven user interface allows you to logically divide and group pieces of information so that user can fill them up easily in step-by-step manner. While creating a wizard is easy in ASP.NET Web Forms applications, you need to implement it yourself in ASP.NET MVC applications. There are more than one approaches to creating a wizard in ASP.NET MVC and this article shows one of them.

Validate Model Programmatically in ASP.NET MVC
ASP.NET model binding framework takes care of validating a model based on data annotation validations. This works well when a model is being bound with request data. However, at times you may need to create and fill a model programmatically. In such cases, although the model properties are decorated with data annotation validators, they won't validate the data because they are not invoked at all. Luckily, ASP.NET MVC allows you to validate a model object via code. This article shows how.

Customize HTML5 Validation Messages in ASP.NET MVC
HTML5 allows you to put constraints on the data entered in form fields through several techniques. These techniques include new input types (such as email and url) and attribute such as required and pattern. When these constraints are violated the browser shows an error message callout and the form submission is cancelled. Although this default arrangement works great in many applications, at times you may want to customize the error messages and how they are displayed. This article explains how such a customization can be achieved with the help of a couple of new events and a dash of jQuery code.

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.

Greatness of Shambhavi Mudra
By assuming the position of Shambhavi Mudra a Yogi should see the self. When the Brahma (ब्रह्म) is seen in the form of a dot he should fix his mind on it and nowhere else. A Yogi who knows the science of Shambhavi he himself becomes Brahma (ब्रह्म) and none else. I, Lord Maheshwara (Shiva), am telling this again and again that this is truth.

Learning, Unlearning and ASP.NET
Software industry is one of the most dynamic industries to work with. Everyday something new comes up and you have no option but to learn it to be in the race. While learning is a commonly acquired skill by software developers, not many can acquire the unlearning abilities. My experience of training software developers tells me that this skill - unlearning - can dramatically affect your experience with a technology or tool you are learning.

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.
