ProMesh.NET Quick Walkthrough - Part 2 - Looping


We'll take our class from the previous example, and show some tabular data:

[Layout("master")] [View("home")]
public class Home : PageController
{
   public class Employee
   {
       public Employee(string name, decimal salary) { Name = name; Salary = salary }

       public string Name;
       public decimal Salary;
   }

   public void Run()
   {
      List<Employee> employees = new List<Emplyee>();

      employees.Add( new Employee("Mark Jones" , 65000) );
      employees.Add( new Employee("John Doe" , 83000) );
      employees.Add( new Employee("Phil Baxter" , 125000) );

      ViewData["Employees"] = employees;
   }
}


home.htm
<html>
<body>
<table>
<tr><th>Name</th><th>Salary</th></tr>
<!--$[foreach employee in Employees]-->
<tr><td>$[employee.Name]</td><td>$[employee.Salary]</td></tr>
<!--$[endfor]-->
</table>
</body>
</html>


Pretty simple, isn't it?

The output will be:

Name Salary
Mark Jones 65000
John Doe 83000
Phil Baxter 125000


HTML:
<html>
<head><title>My first ProMesh.NET page</title></head>
<body>
<table>
<tr><th>Name</th><th>Salary</th></tr>
<tr><td>Mark Jones</td><td>65000</td></tr>
<tr><td>John Doe</td><td>83000</td></tr>
<tr><td>Phil Baxter</td><td>125000</td></tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>


Want to format the numbers a little?

home.htm
<html>
<body>
<table>
<tr><th>Name</th><th>Salary</th></tr>
<!--$[foreach employee in Employees]-->
<tr><td>$[employee.Name]</td><td>$[employee.Salary:#,##0.00]</td></tr>
<!--$[endfor]-->
</table>
</body>
</html>


Final output:

Name Salary
Mark Jones 65,000.00
John Doe 83,000.00
Phil Baxter 125,000.00


HTML:
<html>
<head><title>My first ProMesh.NET page</title></head>
<body>
<table>
<tr><th>Name</th><th>Salary</th></tr>
<tr><td>Mark Jones</td><td>65,000.00</td></tr>
<tr><td>John Doe</td><td>83,000.00</td></tr>
<tr><td>Phil Baxter</td><td>125,000.00</td></tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>
