Routing for Web Forms in ASP.NET 4.0
A while back on a lark, I posted a prototype demonstrating how one could use Routing within Web Forms. This is something you can do today with ASP.NET 3.5 SP1, because of the work we did to separate Routing from ASP.NET MVC. I would have liked to include Web Form Routing as part of the Routing feature when we were working on SP1, but we didn’t have the time to do so in a robust manner before SP1 was locked down.
Since then, Scott Galloway, who just happens to be my office mate, has taken the reigns and is the PM in change of guiding the Web Form Routing feature to be included in ASP.NET 4.0 in a more integrated fashion.
He wrote a blog post earlier today describing some of the ways that routing will be more deeply integrated into ASP.NET such as new properties of the Page class, cool uses of Expression Builders, etc… That’s just a teaser as he promises to go a little more in depth soon.
