Learn how to validate the incoming paging options, and use the ASP.NET Core configuration and dependency injection system to add paging defaults to collections.
- [Instructor] The client should be able to omit…the offset or limit parameters…when they retrieve a collection.…Right now, if those parameters are omitted,…the API will throw an exception.…We can add some default values to fall back on…if one or both of those parameters are missing.…To add some paging defaults,…let's jump over to appsettings.json first.…In appsettings.json,…at the bottom here let's say...…We'll add a property called DefaultPagingOptions.…
And in here we'll say the default limit…is 25 items,…and the default offset…is zero.…Over in Startup.cs, let's pull this data…into an instance of PagingOptions.…Say services.Configure PagingOptions,…and we'll pull this from Configuration….GetSection…DefaultPagingOptions.…
Now over in the RoomsController,…we'll hold onto a private PagingOptions…called DefaultPagingOptions,…and we'll inject this as an Ioptions…from the options namespace.…It'll be an Ioptions of PagingOptions,…and when we inject it we'll say…defaultPagingOptions equals…defaultPagingOptions….Value.…
Just to be consistent, let me call this…
