Lesson 18 - E-shop in ASP.NET Core MVC - Persons - Finishing up
In the previous lesson, E-shop in ASP.NET Core MVC - Persons - Views, we prepared a view for person registration. In today's ASP.NET Core MVC tutorial, we're going to complete the registration and person management by processing the form data. The complete source code of the project is, after a long time, attached below.
The basis for processing data from the form will be to modify the
Register() action in
AccountController. First, we'll
create entries in the
Persons table and the tables bound to it. To
do this, we'll write a new method in
AccountManager. Only then
we'll create an entry in the
Users table, to which we'll set the
Id value as our new person has. Finally, we'll log the newly
registered user in.
Now the consequences of my earlier decision to define the viewmodels in the application layer will be reflected. If they were defined in the business layer, we could now pass the entire viewmodel as a parameter to the appropriate method in the manager. This way, we first have to divide it into corresponding objects. Fortunately, with AutoMapper it shouldn't be very complicated. Besides, in principle this solution is probably better.
AutoMapper is a handy tool for mapping one object to another. Install the
AutoMapper.Extensions.Microsoft.DependencyInjection package using
the NuGet Package Manager. First we need to define which objects to map and how.
We can create an auxiliary class for this configuration, we can name it
