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.
