ASP.NET Scaffolding with a Web Forms scaffold generator

Today we are sharing a pre-release build of a new code generation framework known as ASP.NET Scaffolding, as well as a scaffold generator (code generator) for Web Forms. The Web Forms scaffold generator can automatically build Create-Read-Update-Delete (CRUD) views based on a model.


Many programming tasks involve writing standard "boilerplate" code. Templates can help avoid having to hand-write all of this code, but only to a degree because they are static. MVC3 introduced the concept of scaffolding - generating code dynamically based on existing artifacts in a project. We are now extending this concept to other frameworks, starting with Web Forms for CRUD views generation.

The scaffolding framework provides APIs, conventions and a common delivery and discovery mechanism enabling a consistent experience for all ASP.NET scaffold generators.
