WebAPI 2.3 Understanding HTTP Get, Post and Delete

In my second mini-series about WebAPI we'll look at a real-life solution.  Now we'll look the HTTP-part of this, and why you should use Get, Post and Delete HTTP-verbs to really show what you're intending to do.


  • I would recommend to watch the Basic-Series Parts 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 since it explains the very basics of WebAPI.
  • Since this is part 2.2, you would also benefit from starting with 2.1 and 2.2.
  • Even if you don't, make sure you have a working DNN with 2sxc 6.4 installed ( see this blog for help).
  • The App you'll install can be found in the App-Catalog - direct link here

In the following 6 minute Video, I'll show you

  1. What these verbs are by looking at the data sent through HTTP
  2. How they are implemented in the server side C# code
  3. How to use them in the client-side JavaScript code
  4. Some basic recommendations

Let's go!
