Does anyone have a better way to do below step #3 and #4 ?
I use these columns all the time and want to make it as easy as possible.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
1.      add fields to POdetail database table
¿      varChar ¿ CreatedBy / LastModifiedBy
¿      datetime ¿ CreateDate / ModifiedDate
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
2.      add Create, Delete, Details, Edit, Index cshtml pages via Scaffolding as usual
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
3.      edit POdetailController.cs
¿      change below Create method
POdetail myEntity = new POdetail();
myEntity.CreatedBy = User.Identity.Name;
myEntity.CreateDate = DateTime.Now;
myEntity.LastModifiedBy = User.Identity.Name;
myEntity.ModifiedDate = DateTime.Now;
return View(myEntity);
¿      change below Edit method
podetail.ModifiedDate = DateTime.Now;
podetail.LastModifiedBy = User.Identity.Name;
return View(podetail);
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
4.      edit Create.cshtml & Edit.cshtml
¿      change below so it is READONLY to user,  READWRITE to app
@Html.DisplayFor(model=> model.CreatedBy)
@Html.HiddenFor(model=> model.CreatedBy)

Instead of updating the createdby, modified date at the controller end, we can do it in repository end before updating the entities

Do you have example websites/etc of "repository end" updating ?
Are you talking database triggers/etc or Model1.edmx changes ?
