  • Awesome work! I'm looking forward to digging into this over the weekend.

    One thing. I'm just exploring the "Walkthrough: Creating a Basic MVC Project in Visual Studio" resource. I'm totally new to MVC so I may be missing something but shouldn't the ActionLinks in the navigation -

    <%=Html.ActionLink("Home", "Index">

    contain the 3rd parameter for the controller like -

    <%=Html.ActionLink("Home", "Index", "Home")%>?

    Otherwise, when you navigate to the Login page and use the Home (and About) tabs it uses the Login not the Home controller and you get a "page not found error".

  • Hi Will,

      There is an overload for Html.ActionLink() which also takes the controller name... You can use that in such sitution that you have described above...

  • Hi, I learned from weblogs.asp.net/scottgu that Asp.net MVC Preview2 source codes will be released, however I can't find it anywhere.

    Do you have any words on this? Thanks!

  • I downloaded and installed MVC Preview 2 but cannot find the ASP.NET MVC Project template in VS2008.

    Am I missing something...

  • I could find the same. I was looking under File > New > WebSite

    The templates are in:

    File > New > Project > <anylanguage> > Web > ASP.NET MVC Web Application

    and File > New > Project > <anylanguage> > Test > ASP.NET MVC Test
