ASP.NET MVC: Order of view selection

Few days ago, I and one of my friends were discussing basic of ASP.NET MVC. After some discussion we came on point in which order views are selected. Because there can be more than one view with same name. For e.g. we can have index.aspx, index.ascx, index.cshtml, index.vbhtml and all this can be in controller specific folder as well shared folder. So in which order view is getting selected? Which view has higher priority? So to getting it clearly, quickly I changed action method to return view which does not exists as mentioned below.

So I thought to write post on string encryption/decryption which discuss precautions before using it as part of URL. However I cant post actual implementation here but we will look in other solution. (I am not much sound in cryptography still we will try to learn together :).)

ASP.NET MVC Value Provider for encrypted query string

By looking at the post title, it is quite clear that we are about to discuss, query string encryption in ASP.NET MVC application. But I am more interested in demonstrating extensibility of ASP.NET MVC framework and how we can leverage it by plugging our custom logic into ASP.NET MVC life cycle.

As always let me start with scratch, recently I came across a ASP.NET MVC application, where several action method were accepting query string parameter and later we identified that few of them must accept encrypted query string parameter. Along with this I also wanted to make sure that...
