URL routing in website

Introduction: In this article today I will explain how we can implement  URL routing in website similar as done in MVC application.

In the previous article I have explained Populate Dropdown List dynamically using MVC RazorCode First migration in MVC 4, Populate Cascading Dropdown List in MVC4 using Json and Jquery and What is MVC? Its advantages and disadvantges.

URL routing provide the SEO friendly and clean url for application. To implement the clean url functionality in application follow the given steps:

Step 1:
Go to Tools>>Library Package Manager>>Package Manager Console and type the below given command:

Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.FriendlyUrls

After its installation you get a successfully added message. Now you see in your application RouteConfig.cs and Site.Mobile.Master page has been added. See attached snapshot:

In VB:
You see the RouteConfig file in C#. To implement the routing in VB application you have to add RouteConfig.vb file instead of RouteConfig.cs and write the code:
Imports System.Web.Routing
Imports Microsoft.AspNet.FriendlyUrls

    Public Shared Sub RegisterRoutes(routes As RouteCollection)
        Dim settings = New FriendlyUrlSettings()
        settings.AutoRedirectMode = RedirectMode.Permanent
    End Sub

Note: You can delete/exclude the Site.Mobile.Master and ViewSwitcher.ascx files if you want.

Step 2:
Add a Global.asax file to application. Write the following code to file:
using System.Web.Routing;

protected void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)

In VB:
Imports System.Web.Routing

Sub Application_Start(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
End Sub

Build the application, run and check the result.
