Algonquin College, School of Advanced TechnologyRequirementsThe first thing you do with a generated code is to clean it up; remove the parts you do notneed. For Home controllers and associated views, we only need the Index action and its associated Index view. You can delete the other generated actions and views. Function as landing “page”, the Home/Index view generally servers as the introduction page to the application and provides links to the other functions of the application. For simplicity, you can replace the content of Home/Index view with the following:<h1>Academic Records Management System</h1>1.Use _ACLayout pageTo use _ACLayout page in a view, you can put the following code block at the beginning of the View.@{ Layout = "_ACLayout";}Hint: If all views in a project use the same layout (such is the case for most web applications), you can put the above code section in _ViewStart.cshtml. Razor Engine will run the code in _ViewStart.cshtml first before interpreting any view in the project.2.Set up Top Menu_ACLayout receives a list of TopMenuItem objects via ViewBag.TopMenu. TopMenuItem class (in Models/MenuModel folder) defines a menu item on top menu bar as: publicclassTopMenuItem{publicstring AspArea { get; set; }publicstring AspController { get; set; }publicstring AspAction { get; set; }publicstring DisplayText { get; set; }}The property names are self-explanatory, they specifies the menu display text, the controller and the action the menu item links (you can ignore AspArea property).CST8256 Web Programming Language IPage 3
