Survey Module in C# plus more C# code Examples

There is not a lot of C# code examples out there for DotNetNuke Modules. I am working  on a new tutorial that will be in VB and C#. To prepare for it I made a C# version of the Survey Module. You can get it here:

C# Version of the Survey Module (This is not an official Core module and is only to be used as a code example)

In addition I added C# examples to the tutorial on my site:

DotNetNuke® 4 Module Development Help Website

  • IPortable (in VB.NET and C#)
  • ISearchable (in VB.NET and C#)
  • IActionable (in VB.NET and C#)
  • NavigateURL (in VB.NET and C#)
  • Module Settings & Personalization (in VB.NET and C#)

    Developing DotNetNuke modules in C# is very easy and straightforward. You only have to remember to add an entry like this to the web.config:

  • <codeSubDirectories>
        <add directoryName="Survey" />

    This node is in the <system.web><compilation> node, (there is a commented out example in release.config). This is because the main project is written in VB so you have to tell the compiler to compile the directory in C#. Once I add this entry I can then place C# code files in the "Survey" directory that is under the "App_Code" directory.
