Please, consider this feature soon as possible!!!!!!!!!!!

With ASP.NET AJax can be done and Blazor is the new one, so we need this feature.

Best,

 

Jeff

Hello Brian,

Angular has been around in production state for, I think, around 8 years, while Blazor's WASM flavor is not even production-ready yet. So - yes, the Blazor framework is much younger and is expected to lag behind in some areas. It does have its advantages, though, and both we and Microsoft believe in it.

On guidance for your apps I can suggest the following e-book we made recently as a good starting place: https://www.telerik.com/campaigns/blazor/wp-beginners-guide-ebook

Thanks Marin!  I must say, i like the concept of Blazor with C# on client.  But based on all my testing, the framework is no where near complete.  You're response confirms that.  for example:

DataBinding and routing are MUCH more power in the other javascript frameworks such as Angular.  With databinding, I find I always have to check parameters in razor template with @(if object != null) then.... otherwise, pages just blow up. This doesn't feel natural to me.

It also seems reactive / async programming is easier in Angular.  Some of my razor pages don't seem to be as responsive in the UI, it appears child components render synchronously?

Oh well, maybe they'll fix this in the future.  Any guidance your company can provide architecting blazor wasm apps, ...from a best practices standpoint ...would be much appreciated!

Hello Brian,

It is highly likely that we will need to wait for the framework to implement some support for that (which may happen with .NET 5, or even later) because the major problem is that dragging changes parameter values, and that simply does not work in Blazor - we had tried that. Making a wrapper over a jQuery widget is not something we want to do for Blazor, however, so at this point we need to wait for the framework to catch up.

What's the status on this?  When can we expect to be able to more the window by dragging on the title bar?

Hi Marat,

We tried having the window draggable in the early previews, but it caused severe performance issues due to the re-generating and redrawing of the DOM caused by Blazor updating bindable properties.

We have it in our sights and we want to add that feature, but we also want it to be nice for the user.

That said, I moved this thread to the feedback portal where you (as well as everyone else) can track it by clicking the Follow button. Here's a link for you: https://feedback.telerik.com/blazor/1416775-moving-a-window-with-the-mouse.
