Is is possible to create App Parts from an MVC project? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sorry if this is a newbie question but I have created a SharePoint 2013 app based on an MVC project. I am now interested to see if I can create an App Part based on the MVC site. 

    I have got as far as adding a Client Web Part (Host Web) and it gives me two options.

    The first option - Create a new client web part page adds a WebPart page to the SharePoint App project but I am not sure what I need to do next.

    The second option - Select or enter a URL for an existing web page doesnt give me any options in the drop down list.

    I have seen instructions on how to create App Parts based Web Forms based applications but nothing on doing it with MVC based apps so I dont know if this is even possible

    Has anyone else managed to do this?

  • Yes.   I am not sure how to to call code behind, but create a new client web part page generates a fully working app part (VS2013).
