Asp.net framework is a part of .net platform for building, deploying and running web applications. Now, we can develop a web application by using Asp.Net Web Form and Asp.Net MVC. In this article, I am going to expose the main difference between Asp.Net Web Form and Asp.Net MVC.

Difference between Asp.Net MVC and Web Forms
Asp.Net Web Forms
Asp.Net MVC
Asp.Net Web Form follow a traditional event driven development model.
Asp.Net MVC is a lightweight and follow MVC (Model, View, Controller) pattern based development model.
Asp.Net Web Form has server controls.
Asp.Net MVC has html helpers.
Asp.Net Web Form supports view state for state management at client side.
Asp.Net MVC does not support view state.
Asp.Net Web Form has file-based URLs means file name exist in the URLs must have its physically existence.
Asp.Net MVC has route-based URLs means URLs are divided into controllers and actions and moreover it is based on controller not on physical file.
Asp.Net Web Form follows Web Forms Syntax
Asp.Net MVC follow customizable syntax (Razor as default)
In Asp.Net Web Form, Web Forms(ASPX) i.e. views are tightly coupled to Code behind(ASPX.CS) i.e. logic.
In Asp.Net MVC, Views and logic are kept separately.
Asp.Net Web Form has Master Pages for consistent look and feels.
Asp.Net MVC has Layouts for consistent look and feels.
Asp.Net Web Form has User Controls for code re-usability.
Asp.Net MVC has Partial Views for code re-usability.
Asp.Net Web Form has built-in data controls and best for rapid development with powerful data access.
Asp.Net MVC is lightweight, provide full control over markup and support many features that allow fast & agile development. Hence it is best for developing interactive web application with latest web standards.
Asp.Net Web Form is not Open Source.
Asp.Net Web MVC is an Open Source.

I hope you will enjoy these tricks while programming with MVC Razor. I would like to have feedback from my blog readers. Your valuable feedback, question, or comments about this article are always welcome.
