Release Notes

ASP.NET Dynamic Data MVC Preview (Updated 5/19/09 to support MVC 1.0 RTM)

NOTE: These previews contains features that may not be in the next version of the framework. These previews are not production quality and should be used at your own risk

This solution contains a number of samples showcasing new Dynamic Data features that are being planned or considered for the next version of ASP.NET. It contains a preview of the Dynamic Data for MVC work that the team is working on. NOTE: The result of this prototype became the templated helper feature in MVC 2. Future versions of MVC are investigating incorporating more of the functionality from this preview. This preview will not be updated again in the future.

Dynamic Data MVC

This sample is a blog engine written using Dynamic Data MVC. The blog engine sample shows how simple it is to bind and display data in an MVC application. This binding and displaying is using Dynamic Data field templates for displaying field and entity templates for displaying entire objects. Note this is all done using all the MVC mechansims like model binders, HTML helpers, etc.

Prerequisites: Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and ASP.NET MVC 1.0 RTM

These samples will not affect the current installed .NET Framework, all new assemblies run in BIN in the projects.*


  1. We cannot include any source code that you send us in the project (through comments, patches, or items in the Issue Tracker). However, we do welcome all feedback.
  2. Unless otherwise stated, the source code and binary files in this project should be considered early alpha builds and as such are intended for experimentation only.
