Album details

It's time to read album's details from the database. Start by adjusting the details in View module:


let details (album : Db.AlbumDetails) = [ h2 album.Title p [] [ img ["src", album.Albumarturl] ] div ["id", "album-details"] [ for (caption,t) in [ "Genre: ", album.Genre "Artist: ", album.Artist "Price: ", album.Price.ToString("0.##") ] -> p [] [ em caption Text t ] ] ]

Above snippet requires defining one more helper functions in View:


let em s = tag "em" [] [Text s]

In the details function we used list comprehension syntax with an inline list of tuples (["Genre:",album.Genre;...). This is just to save us some time from typing the p element three times for all those properties. You're welcome to change the implementation so that it doesn't use this shortcut if you like.

The AlbumDetails database view turns out to be handy now, because we can use all the attributes we need in a single step (no explicit joins required).

To read the album's details in App module we can do following:


let details id = match Db.getAlbumDetails id (Db.getContext()) with | Some album -> html (View.details album) | None -> never


pathScan Path.Store.details details

A few remarks regarding above snippet:

  • details takes id as parameter and returns WebPart
  • Path.Store.details of type IntPath guarantees type safety
  • Db.getAlbumDetails can return None if no album with given id is found
  • If an album is found, html WebPart with the View.details container is returned
  • If no album is found, None WebPart is returned with help of never.

No pipe operator was used this time, but as an exercise you can think of how you could apply it to the details WebPart.

Before testing the app, add the "placeholder.gif" image asset. You can download it from here. Don't forget to set "Copy To Output Directory", as well as add new file extension to the pathRegex in App module.
