ASP.NET Core 2 and Angular 5

By: Valerio De Sanctis

Overview of this book

Become fluent in both frontend and backend web development by combining the impressive capabilities of ASP.NET Core 2 and Angular 5 from project setup right through the deployment phase. Full-stack web development means being able to work on both the frontend and backend portions of an application. The frontend is the part that users will see or interact with, while the backend is the underlying engine, that handles the logical flow: server configuration, data storage and retrieval, database interactions, user authentication, and more. Use the ASP.NET Core MVC framework to implement the backend with API calls and server-side routing. Learn how to put the frontend together using top-notch Angular 5 features such as two-way binding, Observables, and Dependency Injection, build the Data Model with Entity Framework Core, style the frontend with CSS/LESS for a responsive and mobile-friendly UI, handle user input with Forms and Validators, explore different authentication techniques, including the support for third-party OAuth2 providers such as Facebook, and deploy the application using Windows Server, SQL Server, and the IIS/Kestrel reverse proxy.

Questions, answers, and results

We just did an excellent job with our quizzes, but it's still not enough to allow our users to actually create--or even take!--a quiz; we're still missing questions, answers, and results.

In the following paragraphs, we'll do our best to bring them up to speed.

Server-side tasks

Remember all those controllers that we set up back in Chapter 2, Backend with .NET Core? We have been neglecting them for a while, with the sole exception of the QuizController; it's definitely time to atone.


Let's start with QuestionController. Here's the code that will put it back on track (new/updated lines are highlighted):

using System;
using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc;
using Newtonsoft.Json;
using TestMakerFreeWebApp.ViewModels;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using TestMakerFreeWebApp.Data;
using Mapster;

namespace TestMakerFreeWebApp.Controllers
    public class QuestionController : Controller
