Don Gingold: The Case of the Missing Glossary (Part 4)
Jun 22, 2020

Today we focused on enhancing an existing view/template to render not only a list of all the glossary terms, but also the details for a single glossary term. We used some nice Razor logic to check for the existence of a an "id" querystring parameter value and make sure it has a valid data type. From there we rendered a different block of code for the list versus for the details. We capped it off with some basic UX work and now we have a fully functional app with related entities, and much more!

Jun 08, 2018

In this session, we'll be introducing a powerful theme building framework and developer workflow.

We will outline basic usage, modification, and advanced usage of this framework and developer workflow. And don't worry if you are new to DNN theme development.
