    Umbraco 8 and calling MapMvcAttributeRoutes

    hi

    What is the best practice way of calling MapMvcAttributeRoutes in an Umbraco 8 application? In umbraco 7 I called it from an ApplicationEventHandler method (ApplicationStarted) but that's replaced with Composers/Components in umb8 I believe. I created a component but now get an error about a missing service for my custom route?

    thanks for the help

    Could you provide some code and what error you're getting?

    Or you could create a starting class which inherits from UmbracoDefaultOwinStartup, if all else fails.

    thanks Sibren. The exception is

    Unable to resolve type: MyWebsite.WidgetsController, service name:
    

    where the controller is

        [RoutePrefix("widgets")]
    public class WidgetsController : Controller
    {
        [ChildActionOnly]
        [Route("show")]
        public ActionResult Show()
        {
            return PartialView();
        }
    }
    

    and the view has

    @Html.Action("Show", "Widgets")
    

    Yes using Owin could be one option. Essentially I just want to register (the non umbraco) mvc routes in my application, so figured i need to call MapMvcAttributeRoutes somehow?

    The Umbraco component is:

        public class RegisterCustomRouteComponent : IComponent
    {
        public void Initialize()
        {
            RouteTable.Routes.MapMvcAttributeRoutes();
        }
    
        public void Terminate()
        {
            throw new NotImplementedException();
        }
    }

    update: following another thread i found, i made my controller inherit from RenderMvcController so that umbraco "knows" about the controller/"service".

    Did this work? Because RouteTable.Routes.MapMvcAttributeRoutes(); does not what you're describing here.

    It does map the routes you're using in your controller though. I am reading up on https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/reference/routing/custom-routes where it states you need to do some other stuff. Did you read that? I am trying the same thing but with an API, but am also struggling.

    I'll keep you informed!

    Hi - yes it worked. So at this point I have a Component that calls "RouteTable.Routes.MapMvcAttributeRoutes();" and also a custom controller that inherits from RenderMvcController.

    This was the only way i could register the routes for my custom controller methods even though the methods aren't concerning umbraco content. I figure it makes sense that this is how an "UmbracoApplication" would know about all of the registered routes (umbraco or not). Ideally i wouldn't need to use RenderMvcController if there was some other/simpler way

    basically, my original question was how do i get an UmbracoApplication to honour the stock standard mvc route attribute on my custom controller method:

            [Route("/my/custom/method")]
        public ActionResult MyMethod()
