Giving Our Module a Setting

DNN Module Development

Our "Tasks" module is shaping up, but what if we don't want to show the completed tasks? What if we only want to show incomplete tasks? In order to limit or filter the view we will add in what's referred to as a "module setting". Module settings can control any feature that you like. In our case in this tutorial series we will give the admin user the ability to set whether or not "completed" tasks will show in the list of tasks.

Deleting Tasks

DNN Module Development

We are rocking and rolling here with our module development journey! Our users can now add tasks and update tasks, but what if they want to delete tasks? In this blog entry we'll walk through the process of allowing our users to delete tasks that they create. The deletion process is different in that we'll add in some functionality for the user to confirm that they want to delete. This will guard against accidental deletion.

Editing Tasks

DNN Module Development

Now that we are allowing users to add tasks there will definitely be the scenario where a user wants to come back and edit their tasks. We need to update our module to allow for this editing functionality. In this blog entry and video we'll walk through each step of the process for adding in the editing capability. We'll cover similar topics as we have covered before along with getting more in depth with jQuery and JavaScript as they will prove critical to providing our users with an interactive editing experience.

Adding Tasks

DNN Module Development

What is a "Tasks" module if we can't add tasks? We've covered a lot of concepts and now we are ready to add the functionality to our module so that we can add tasks to our task list. We will make use of the web services framework again to allow us to add tasks. The good part is that we've already got all the files needed and we just need to add in the new functionality. By the end of this entry you'll see how using the web services framework and modern module development approach provides a really great user experience.

Debugging a DNN Module

DNN Module Development

At some point all developers will have to do something known as "Debugging". Debugging is the process of looking through your code and finding any issues or errors that may be occurring. There may be some data getting returned and you're not sure why, well debugging will help you find out the answers to questions like this. Seasoned developers are also seasoned debuggers, but we have to start somewhere. In this blog entry we'll walk through debugging a DNN module at a high level.

Mentally Mapping The Pieces Together

DNN Module Development

When first learning DNN module development is is possible for things to get fuzzy... at least it did for me. I wanted to know where things lived and what exactly they did for me and my module. If you are like me and seek to understand all the bits and pieces and wnat to know how they work together then this entry is for you. In this blog entry we'll look at how all the components of our module work together to make a sweet module harmony.

Using jQuery and AJAX

DNN Module Development

In our module development quest we've taken several steps thus far and in this entry we are fixing to score our first Touchdown as we will finally get data back into our view control! JavaScripters we'll be speaking your language in this blog entry as we will walk through the process of using jQuery AJAX to get data returned from our web service and finally placed into our View.ascx file

Creating the Web Service Class

DNN Module Development

Web services tie the web together! Well... almost at least :-) As indicated in the previous blog entry on Modern Module Development we are opting to use modern development techniques in our module as much as possible. A lot of web applications provide some sort of web service end points so that external systems can integrate with their data. In our case we're going to use web services internally for our own module (but we're not limited to just using web services with our own module). In this blog entry we will walk through building out our web service class for our tasks module.

Module Development vs. “Modern Module Development”

DNN Module Development

There has been a recent shift in web development. The shift has been to more client-side development practices with applications being heavily based on JavaScript and web services. This approach provides several benefits for the end-users. This blog entry discusses why we're opting for the "modern" development route in this series versus developing our "Tasks" module in the way modules were developed in the past. Want a module with a great user experience... then you will love developing modules via the modern approach.

Creating the Task Controller Class

DNN Module Development

Have you wondered how exactly we can get code in our module to post data to the database? Well, I pondered that same mystery for a while, but it's really not such a mystery. The Task Controller Class is the "Traffic Director" between our module's code and the data in our database. In this blog entry we'll walk through the process of creating the TaskController class and sending data to our Tasks Table in SQL Server.
