Lesson 7 - Article administration and editor in ASP.NET Core MVC

In the previous lesson, Scaffolding and Entity Framework in ASP.NET Core MVC, we introduced scaffolding and Entity Framework Core. In today's ASP.NET Core tutorial, we're going to modify the generated article administration and add an article editor. Let's show how it'll look like:

TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor in ASP.NET MVC

Templates modification

First, we'll modify the individual cshtml templates.

Index.cshtml

The Index.cshtml view (for the ArticlesController controller) displays a list of articles in a table. We'll set the title there, delete the <h2> heading, delete the header row, and add an ID and CSS style for the table.

@model IEnumerable<AspBlog.Models.Article>

@{
    ViewData["Title"] = "List of articles";
}

<p>
    <a asp-action="Create">Create new</a>
</p>
<table class="table" id="articles">
    <tbody>
        @foreach (var item in Model) {
        <tr>
            <td>
                <h2><a asp-action="Details" asp-route-id="@item.Id">@item.Title</a></h2>
                <p>@item.Description</p>
                <p>
                    <a asp-action="Edit" asp-route-id="@item.Id">Edit</a> |
                    <a asp-action="Delete" asp-route-id="@item.Id">Delete</a>
                </p>
            </td>
        </tr>
        }
    </tbody>
</table>

First, we define that the view's model is a collection of our articles and set the page title for the layout. Using tag helpers, we then generate
