Extend static command capabilities with JavaScript translations

by Tomáš Herceg | August 12, 2023

Static commands are a powerful feature of DotVVM which lets you modify the viewmodel without calling the server. This is possible because DotVVM can translate some C# calls into JavaScript snippets. We don’t involve WebAssembly in this process – the translation is just a simple transform of the C# expression to a JS one, and the list of supported syntax constructs and APIs is limited.

Using Composite Controls for the implementation of Bootstrap 5 components

by Maxim Dužij | March 21, 2023

You may already be aware that DotVVM 4.0 has introduced a new feature called Composite Controls, which provides a new way to write controls in DotVVM. This approach eliminates the need to declare DotVVM properties in code-only controls, for which you had to use the dotprop code snippet and work with long property declaration blocks. Instead, it only requires declaring a `GetContents` method and placing individual control properties as arguments of the method. By using this approach, the control code appears much more attractive and readable.
