This question is from a Best Practices point of view.
I am using Micro-ORM to separate DAL with Views. I am often confused on my application design approach. While the Micro-ORM takes care of the separation of layers, I also want separation of business logic.
It is suggested to use Classes in this regard, but use of Classes is puzzling in itself.
For example, I have a Web Form with a Button. On click of this button, I want to call a method called as: AddCompany.
I want to know where should I keep this AddCompany method. If it is residing in the .cs file of the Web Form, the business logic is again tightly coupled.
And if I move this method to a Class, I need to pass all the Web Form input box values as parameters to this class.
What is the best way to do this?

I would keep the logic out of the webform.cs because I think that's a 'view' - personally I prefer to collect the information there but don't process it there - pass it on - if possible to a purpose build dll (I assume you are anyway) - so I like to use
an intermediate class, which interfaces with the dll. So, my web forms inherit from this intermediate class and methodds are static so it's kind of like this: -
public class IntermediateClass : System.Web.UI.Page
public static Result AddCompany(Company company)
//THEN IN WEB FORM
public partial class MyWebForm : IntermediateClass
protected void btn_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
//since we inherit
Company c = new Company();
c.ID = (int)hiddenField.Value;
c.Name = txtName.Text;
This is one method to go about things. Sorry if I barked up the wrong tree.
