    The following project has a textbox with a send button. The click event fires an AJAX GET request and sends a string parameter to an ASP.NET Core application, which responds by converting the parameter to its uppercase equivalent. The client side script has been written using pure javascript.

    In nutshell: The selection change event of the master dropdown is used to send the "id" of the selected item to the server, which sends back a collection of items for the slave dropdown. A javascript based Ajax GET request is used for this communication with the server.

    This project is about creating an Admin Panel that would be suitable for a reporting project or an EBook that shows a table of links on the left and the corresponding content on the right side. The content is obtained by an Ajax call to an ASP.NET Core application. Source code for all the three files has been given and explained below.

    THE CRUX: record types are meant for storing read-only, init-once data. They serve the purpose of ValueTypes, but in reality they are reference types; they have best of both the worlds. They, being reference types, can be efficiently passed as function arguments(like class objects), and yet they carry data like structs [though read-only] but the data doesn't get copied during function calls - this promotes efficiency. They are 2-in-1: they are RefTypes but they perform the task of ValueTypes (though read-only, init-once). So with C# 9.0 we have a triad - class, struct and record. Two different instances of records are equal if they contain the same data (like structs, and un-like the classes!) The "positional record" syntax makes it easier to create their objects, and the newly introduced "with" expressions make it even easier to create their exact copies, possibly with just-in-time alterations to some of their properties.

    In brief: Just two additions are required to implement AJAX based authorization in your existing ASP.NET Core application - first is on the javascript side - where the response code should be tested, and second on the server side where User.IsInRole has to be tested. The concept is explained in the text that follows, and a working example is described in the appended youtube video!

    Pure Javascipt and html5 based general solution for in-place or in-line editing of the tr, td records of an html table. This solution is suitable for ajax based updates of the rows of a table.

    Following are my top 6 interview questions on the "init" accessor introduced recently in C# 9. The answers have all been fully explained through code examples. All the examples have been kept as short as possible.

    Anti-forgery token is NOT available outside of <form> tags. This article, alongwith the appended video, explains how to use IAntiforgery service to solve this limitation, and POST data, especially as an AJAX request, when a full-fledged form is not possible?

    This program is for the Windows OS only. The location of the desktop folder is first obtained by using the Win32 function SHGetKnownFolderPath. Then PathAllocCombine is used to append the name of the file to obtain the path to the file. Finally, some text is written using the iostream library of C++!
