Integrating EPiServer 7 MVC and Commerce 1 R3 - Part 3: Creating an Entry Action Filter

on July 28, 2013 in Episerver, Episerver 7, Episerver MVC, Commerce 1 R3 with 0 Comments

When developing out our EPiServer 7 MVC and Commerce site, we needed to have some way to ensure that the requested Entry is valid and exists in our catalog. In our solution, since we have multiple actions in our ProductDetailPageController, we created an action filter to validate {entry} parameter in our route, instead of repeating the code for every action.

This is part of a multi-post series regarding integrating EPiServer Commerce 1 R3 with an EPiServer 7 MVC site. In this post, I'll discuss the action filter we created to validate the requested Entry.

Integrating EPiServer 7 MVC and Commerce 1 R3 - Part 2: Routing to the Product Detail Page

on July 27, 2013 in Episerver, Episerver 7, Episerver MVC, Commerce 1 R3 with 0 Comments

Routing to the Product Detail Page is one of the most important components of our EPiServer 7 MVC and Commerce integration. The routing we create will define the primary path to the product's information. Since we are not going to be creating page instances for each product, we need to have some way to determine which Entry should be displayed.

This is part of a multi-post series regarding integrating EPiServer Commerce 1 R3 with an EPiServer 7 MVC site. In this post, I'll discuss the different routing methods to the Product Detail Page.

Integrating EPiServer 7 MVC and Commerce 1 R3 - Part 1: Developing the Basics

on July 26, 2013 in Episerver, Episerver 7, Episerver MVC, Commerce 1 R3 with 0 Comments

Over the last couple of months, we've been working on integrating EPiServer Commerce 1 R3 with an EPiServer 7 MVC site. Unfortunately, this is not the most straightforward process, as Commerce 1 R3 is not fully supported with EPiServer 7 sites using MVC. After a lot of trial and error, we've developed a workable solution to getting both to play nicely with each other.

This is part of a multi-post series. In this post, I'll briefly discuss setting up the solution, then cover the basic components needed for our EPiServer 7 MVC and Commerce 1 R3 site.

List of XForm System Localization Keys in EPiServer 7

on April 30, 2013 in Episerver, Episerver 7, Localization, XForms with 0 Comments

I've recently been working on translating text that is displayed along with an XForm property. Since the localizations that are shipped with EPiServer 7 are now embedded in the assemblies, it's not as easy as searching through an XML file for the keys you need to override. So, as a reference, here are the system localization keys related to XForms that are embedded into EPiServer 7.

Creating a Link to a Page in your EPiServer 7 MVC View

on April 28, 2013 in Episerver, Episerver 7, Episerver MVC with 0 Comments

When developing an EPiServer 7 site (or really any site, for that matter), making a link to a page is one of the most common things you'll do. So, I thought I'd do something a little more basic and explore how to handle this task in your front-end page and block templates, specifically using MVC Razor views. In this post, we'll look at what you can currently use to create a link to a page, then I'll introduce some extension methods that you can use to give yourself a little more flexibility in your MVC view.
