Crawling On MVC Entity Framework

Crawling On MVC Entity Framework

Crawling On MVC Entity Framework

I am very new to ASP.Net MVC weeks in experience with it.

I am enjoying learning the ins and outs of this new tool with the various tutorials I have been finding on line.

My background has been in MS Access for many years and more recently my work space needs are pushing me towards a remote system which is where ASP.Net comes in.

I may be getting ahead of myself, but coming from an Access background I am used to fairly simple handling of Not in List on the drop down. In fact one of my standard tools is a standard module to handle all not in list events. I keep looking for similar information in ASP.Net MVC and so far haven't found it. I am finding reference to AJAX, and other tools, but at the moment I am generally thinking about IQueryable methods of some sort. Can someone perhaps post a few links to something talking about this? I have been spending time looking myself but haven't either realised I am looking at the right information or haven't been able to find any really clear examples.

Thanks in advance

RE: Crawling On MVC Entity Framework

Ok.. So..
first the drop down list in Access works differently than an HTML drop down list.
Selecting text if the word starts with f and is the third entry in a web page, the user needs to press f 3 times to get to it. In access you start typing the word.. e.g. frozen peas as the third entry.. you just start typing "fro" and it should come up. So a not in list really almost doesn't make sense, If you cycle through the f's by hitting f until it starts at the beginning again.

Also.. with Access, because everything is databound, an empty list entry was likely to throw an error as it was usually doing a directlookup from the lists event. In the web you need to code around the postback, look for an empty value or a null result from a search..

Everything is just a little more manual.

Hopefully that makes sense.
