By: Dirk Strauss, Jas Rademeyer

Overview of this book

.NET Core is a general purpose, modular, cross-platform, and open source implementation of .NET. With the latest release of .NET Core, many more APIs are expected to show up, which will make APIs consistent across .Net Framework, .NET Core, and Xamarin. This step-by-step guide will teach you the essential .NET Core and C# concepts with the help of real-world projects. The book starts with a brief introduction to the latest features of C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 before moving on to explain how C# 7 can be implemented using the object-oriented paradigm. You'll learn to work with relational data using Entity Framework and see how to use ASP.NET Core practically. This book will show you how .NET Core allows the creations of cross-platform applications. You'll also learn about SignalR to add real-time functionality to your application. Then you will see how to use MongoDB and how to implement MongoDB into your applications. You'll learn about serverless computing and OAuth concepts, along with running ASP.NET Core applications with Docker Compose. This project-based guide uses practical applications to demonstrate these concepts. By the end of the book, you'll be proficient in developing applications using .NET Core 2.0.

Putting it all together

Now, let's have a look how we use the classes to create the Cricket Score Tracker app. The buttons below the Batters section and Bowler section are used to select batsmen and a bowler for the specific over.

While each button is taken care of by its own click event, they all call the exact same method. We will have a look at how that is accomplished in a moment:

Clicking on either button under the Batsmen section will display a modal dialog with a drop-down list populated with the batsmen in the team:

Similarly, when we click on the Select Bowler button, we will see the exact same modal dialog screen displayed. This time, however, it will be a list of bowlers displayed for selection:

Selecting players from the drop-down lists will populate the text on the button clicked with that player's name. This then sets up the current over with the players involved.


Take note that we are talking in terms of the classes here. We have players, but they can be batsmen or all-rounders...
