Lesson 11 - E-shop in ASP.NET Core MVC - Product index
In the previous lesson, E-shop in ASP.NET Core MVC - Finishing the Image Management, we prepared a tree menu of product categories. In today's ASP.NET Core tutorial, we're going to display products based on the selected category, including sorting, filtering, and pagination options.
Displaying products in a category
The following picture shows how a page listing products looks like. We'll be able to open this page by clicking on one of the leaf categories in the left menu (which is done at this point). We'll also see this page when searching for products using the search box in the application header or by customizing the filtering or sorting at the top of the page.
At the top of the page, there's a form for filtering and sorting the displayed products. Below, there are individual products. Only a certain number of products can be displayed per page (let's chose a small number for this course, 6), so we also need to solve pagination for a larger number of products.
Another thing we need to deal with is that the website looks different for administrators. They will see extra icons for editing or removing the product and the number of items in stock, plus they'll have an option to increase the stock for each product (see the figure below):

We'll introduce the complete code of the view next time, let's just think about the form for filtering and sorting the listed products for now.
The form consists of these elements:
