How to return a CSV file with ASP.NET MVC

Continuing with my series of posts inspired by the work done on the Web.NET Conference web site, after telling you why you should not use Boolean fields when modeling your objects, today I want to share with you an ActionResult I wrote to get a CSV from a generic list of object. I needed to download the list of all attendees in csv format so that I could import them into Excel for doing various free-form analysis: I looked around the net to see if something was available but I found nothing, so I decided to write it myself...

10 articles on ASP.NET MVC Extensibility to land on Simple-Talk in the next months

If you are following my blog since at least a few years you know that one of my main interest is the possibility to extend ASP.NET MVC and fine tune it to fit your (and your team’s) needs.

13 ASP.NET MVC extensibility points you have to know

One of the main design principles ASP.NET MVC has been designed with is extensibility. Everything (or most of) in the processing pipeline is replaceable so, if you don’t like the conventions (or lack of them) that ASP.NET MVC uses, you can create your own services to support your conventions and inject them into the main pipeline. In this post I’m going to show 13 extensibility points that every ASP.NET MVC developer should know, starting from the beginning of the pipeline and going forward till the rendering of the view. 1.
