About the Book
In this e-book you will learn all about Razor View Engine introduced in MVC 3. I will walk through the simple steps and even I will keep my ideas simple so that you can understand the Razor View Engine better. My aim through this e-book is to teach Razor so I am going to play a little loose with rest all.
You can find more about this eBook and samples used to demonstrate the Razor View Engine in the author’s site. Samples are available to download freely. Don’t forget to share a “Thanks Note” to the author and encourage him to write more and deliver to you.
What is Razor?
Razor is the name of the new view engine introduced by Microsoft with the release of MVC 3. The ASP.NET view engines processes web pages, looking for special elements that contain server-side instructions. As we already know the standard ASPX view engine relies on the <% and %> elements, which is familiar to all ASP.NET developers. But with Razor View Engine, the MVC development team has introduced a new set of syntax elements, centered on the @ symbol.
If you are familiar with the <% %> syntax, you won’t have too many problems with Razor, although there are a few new rules.
Razor views have a file extension of .cshtml, as opposed to the .aspx extension used in previous MVC releases and in ASP.NET Web Forms, we can still use the ASPX view engine in an MVC 3 project but try to learn Razor engine, because it seems to be a strong area of focus.
