Previous changes from v4.1

  • 🚀 This release provides improved support for asynchronous execution within a view model and allow the use of methods to express view model commands.

    🔋 Features

    • ➕ Add OnCreatedAsync virtual method in BaseVM to allow asynchronous view model initialization.

    Example:

    public class MyViewModel: BaseVM{ ... public override async Task OnCreatedAsync() { MyPropertyValue = await SomeAsyncMethod(); } }
    
    • 👌 Support using method instead of Action property.

    Example:

    vm.$dispatch({Submit: {/\*form data\*/}});
    
    public class MyForm : BaseVM{ // OLD:public Action\<FormData\> Submit { get =\> formData =\> SubmitForm(formData); } // NEW:public void Submit(FormData formData) =\> SubmitForm(formData); }
    
    • 👌 Support asynchronous action methods. They are awaitable, which means you no longer need to call PushUpdates.

    Example:

    vm.$dispatch({Submit: {/\*form data\*/}});
    
    public class MyAsyncForm : BaseVM{ public string Message { get =\> Get\<string\>(); set =\> Set(); } public async Task Submit(FormData formData) { await SubmitFormAsync(formData); Message = "Submitted"; } }
    
    • Provide [ItemKey] attribute to specify list item keys for CRUD operations (#205).
      Example:

      // OLD:public string Employees_itemKey => nameof(EmployeeInfo.Id);public IEnumerable<EmployeeInfo> Employees { get; private set; }// NEW:[ItemKey(nameof(EmployeeInfo.Id)]public IEnumerable<EmployeeInfo> Employees { get; private set; }

    🐛 Bug Fixes

    • 🛠 Fix the middleware that extract headers so that the client can update the headers through dispatch (#251).
