Non virtual members in controller base class


Most of the voice controller members are not virtual. I have a case where my app is sitting behind a load balancer, and sees all requests as HTTP, even though the load balancer is serving https and I need to keep it that way.

I worked around this by hacking the Views to replace http:// with https://, but this is nasty hack.

If I could have overridden ApplicationUri i could have implemented it there instead of having to change the code in several places. (This is just one example where virtual members would have been very helpful, there are many others)

Thank you for your feedback on VoiceModel. Would you please provide a list of methods you think should be virtual, besides ApplicationUri. Also, would you please provide the code you would use to override ApplicationUri to work in your environment. Are you just hard coding whether it is http or https? Is there a way we can implement this so it works in all environments?

(If members listed are private, they should be made protected.)


Maybe the URL's as well. (So basically everything)

I was going to hard code it, there really isn't a common way to do it, each situation will be different. (EX: Some may have a header, others like us may always want HTTPS, but iis may not be aware its https, etc.)
