Internet Explorer working like Internet Explorer usually does - not working. But this time it's Blazor's fault!

IE11 fails to load a (server-side) Blazor web app

Welp – this was not a fun issue to run into! While nobody in this day and age should use Internet Explorer for any normal usage (occasional legacy scenarios aside), there are still some luddites who do (or whose IT department makes them to). This means it’s still useful, and sometimes even required, for a web application to work even in Internet Explorer. Description of the issue So, like shown in the article’s image, when trying to access your web application using IE11, the page…Continue reading IE11 fails to load a (server-side) Blazor web app

How to use UriHelper or NavigationManager in .NET Core 3.0 & Blazor?

Just a quick piece of documentation, as this piece of code has changed in different versions of .NET Core 3.0 so far a few times. Need to have things like this written down somewhere! UriHelper / NavigationManager with .NET Core 3.0 Both of these helper libraries do essentially the same thing: navigate/browse/redirect the user to a different address, component, page or view in or by your web app. What you normally use this library for is exactly the same in all versions I’ve worked with,…Continue reading How to use UriHelper or NavigationManager in .NET Core 3.0 & Blazor?

Blazor is a new (ish) framework for building web UIs with C#. It either uses SignalR to manage connections between your client-side and server-side code, or even compiles directly to WebAssembly, in both cases cutting out the need to write any pesky JavaScript yourself – pretty neat, if you ask me! However, developing your web apps with Blazor is a bit different from using ASP.NET MVC, for example. Other people have written great introductions to the tech, so I’ll stick to the problem at hand:…Continue reading HttpClient in Blazor

‘__generated__Index.OnInitAsync()’: no suitable method found to override

Welp – just ran into this one, and as I expect others to encounter the same issue, better document in right away! So in Blazor, I was crafting a simple component that’d display some data in a nice way. Being lazy and crafty, I thought I’d copy-paste some similar code from an earlier POC I had built, since I knew it worked. The component was overriding a method called “OnInitAsync”, and it just nicely fetched data after initialized. But alas, it didn’t. Not anymore. I…Continue reading ‘__generated__Index.OnInitAsync()’: no suitable method found to override
