PUT Method

Go to previous
We simply assume that the Web API PUT method conforms to Microsofts philosophy regarding REST webservice methods. PUT is for Edit, here update of a current Employee object. Like this:
// PUT: api/Employee/5 [HttpPut("{id}")] public void Put(int id, [FromBody] Employee Emp)
So we can write the MVC Controller method as follows:
using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Diagnostics; using System.Linq; using System.Threading.Tasks; using Microsoft.AspNetCore.Mvc; using Microsoft.Extensions.Logging; using MyAspNetCoreApplication.Models; using System.Net.Http; using System.Net.Http.Headers; using Newtonsoft.Json; //PUT Corresponds to Edit(Update) of an Employee object. public async Task Edit(int id) { Employee emp = null; using (var client = new HttpClient()) { var MainUrl = "http://" + HttpContext.Request.Host.Value; client.BaseAddress = new Uri(MainUrl + "/api/employee"); HttpResponseMessage Res = await client.GetAsync("Employee/" + id.ToString()); if (Res.IsSuccessStatusCode) { var EmpResponse = Res.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result; //Deserializing the response recieved from web api and storing into the Employee object emp = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject (EmpResponse); } } return View(emp); }
