Would like to create a client consuming Web API with ASP.NET Core MVC and Visual Studio RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1849651236 posted

    Hello,

    I currently have a Visual Studio, c#, client consuming program that consumes web services and displays DataGridViews.

    I would like to create a new program with the latest technology of ASP.NET Core MVC and API in Visual Studio to do the same thing.

    I think I want to create something that is like this: https://docs.asp.net/en/latest/tutorials/first-web-api.html, I'm not sure.

    Is that tutorial doing what I want?

    Also, does anybody know how to download the completed source code from that tutorial?  I have no idea of what GitHub is or how to use it.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Hi tgirgenti,

    Yes, you can refer it. I found some links in the below. May be able to help you better understand.

    Creating Web API in ASP.NET Core:

    http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/1112848/Creating-Web-API-in-ASP-NET-Core

    Also, does anybody know how to download the completed source code from that tutorial? 

    You can create projects based on tutorials.

    I have no idea of what GitHub is or how to use it.

    Let’s get started with GitHub!

    Also, if you have any question about Asp.NET core, you can go to the ASP.NET Core forum for suitable help.

    Yohann,

    Thanks for your help.

    When I download the .zip file, it gives me a "Docs-master.zip" file.  I don't see anything in the .zip file that looks like a solution for the tutorial that I am working on.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Hi tgirgenti,

      I don't see anything in the .zip file that looks like a solution for the tutorial that I am working on.

    I can find the completed source code about the tutorial (TodoAPI).

    Yohann,

    Thanks for your continued help in this issue.

    I'm not sure of how you go to your final screenshot.

    When I get to the screen where it shows Controllers, Models, Properties, I click on Controllers and I get this screen:

    Sorry, I am having a terrible time trying to post a screenshot here:

    The screen I get does not match what you are showing.  I cannot find the final screen that you have diaplyed.

    Can you give me more details about how you got to that screen?

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Hi tgirgenti,

    I am based on the link address you provided and find the download address.

    Your tutorial:

    https://docs.asp.net/en/latest/tutorials/first-web-api.html

    Docs-master.zip download link:

    https://codeload.github.com/aspnet/Docs/zip/master

    Then download it.

    Yohann,

    Thanks again for your help, but I am totally confused by your reply here.

    You are showing me a link that I started this post with and I have no idea of what your point is.

    The other link is something that has nothing to do with the source code for the tutorial at the link that I started this post with.  Look at the name of it, "Docs-master.zip".

    I would like to know how to download the source referred to in the link that I provided at the beginning of this post.

    Thanks,
    Tony
