ASP.NET Razor Introduction
Razor is a standard markup syntax that allows us to embed server code into the web pages. It uses its own syntax and keywords to generate view.
If there is server code in the web page, server executes that code first then send response to the browser. It allows us to perform logical tasks in the view page. We can create expressions, loops and variables in the view page.
It has simplified syntax which is easy to learn and code. This file extension is .cshtml.
Razor uses this character to transit from HTML to C#. When @ symbol is used with razor syntax, it transits into Razor specific markup, otherwise it transitions into plain C#. We used it, to start single line expression, single statement block or multi-statement block.
