How to build simple website with one menu on top and content below (content by menu click) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. I´m a newbie in web developement but I have a lot of experience in programming Desktop WPF applications. I would like to make a website with one constant menu on top or left side of the page and content in the center. Content should change depending on with menuitem the user clicks. There are a lot of tutorial online but so far I have not find what I am looking for. Please advice.

    I am using Visual Studio Web Developement 2013 Express.

    I have created Desktop WPF applications with menu on top and then filling center grid with UserControls depending on menu click. I was hopeing to do something similar in web developement.

    Sorry if this in a wrong forum category...

  • If you pick the MVC template I think it dumps everything your are asking for into the project automatically.  But I also believe that you can find other online templates which should have what you are looking for.  Note there is a difference between MVC and ASPX forms base web sites.  You may wasn't to look into that.

    MVC is really cool! and it does some very cool things with Entity Framework.

  • Open visual studio -> New project -> ASP website (not empty).

    You'll get a ready made website.
