Introduction to the WebGrid in MVC

In WebForms, first we had a DataGrid and then the GridView that we relied on for our grid type presentations. Well, once we started using MVC, it was a little more difficult since there are no ‘controls’ per se.

Most examples of how to use ‘get-SPFeature’ using PowerShell (SharePoint Management Shell) show you how to use it with the GUID to find out the name. But what if you have the name and you want to find out the GUID ? All you need to do is use the name – it works both ways

Visual Studio 2013 Shortcuts and Other Cool Stuff

Here are some really cool features in Visual Studio 2013 that I particularly like:

Built in Shortcuts

Surround with —
Ctrl-K Ctrl-S – this surrounds highlighted text with whatever you choose. The first menu shows ASP.Net, ASP.Net MVC4, and HTML. Choose any one of those items and it gives you the appropriate list of items you can use to surround the highlighted text.

Comments —
Ctrl-K Ctrl CInsert comment tags around highlighted text. This is also context-aware (CSS/HTML, MVC, etc.)

Search Solution Explorer —
Ctrl-Q Searches and highlights items in Solution Explorer

Other Features

Built in Intellisense for JQuery
Quick Launch (Ctrl-Q) Search for NuGet items
Navigate To (Ctrl-,) Search for anything in the project. It will find all the pages with references to that item, allowing you to scroll to a particular page, then click and load it.

For more features, go to New Visual Studio Features
