Linked Data Sample

This sample builds on the Local Service Sample and adds a page that can be used to categorize ideas from the idea service.

The relationship between ideas and categories is a typical many-to-many association. The user interface for these sort of relationships will typically vary depending on the number of elements on each side. In this case, the sample simply presents a collection of check boxes for each idea.

Some techniques demonstrated include:
  • How to craft a request that adds / removes a link or association from a collection.
  • Using Knockout to simplify data binding, including binding check boxes to arrays.
  • Adding a view model observable property, communicating, useful to avoid submitting multiple requests to the server at the same time.

The sample file is ideacats.htm, which can be added to the Local Service Sample to run.
